Cartel battle ends in nine bodies dumped outside rival’s home

New Laredo, Tamaulipas — The body of nine people who are suspected of being linked to drug crimes, were found dumped outside the home of one of the victims.

Police were called to a home at 8:25 p.m. when nine dead bodies were seen left on the front exterior of the property. The bodies of four women and five men were found shot to death at a house in the center of the city.

“The Attorney General’s Office of the State of Tamaulipas opened an investigation folder on the murder of nine people,” they said a brief statement.

The bodies of four women and five men were abandoned outside a house located at the intersection of Abraham Lincoln and Porfirio Díaz streets in Colonia Viveros, a few meters from the international bridge that connects with the United States.

On one side of the bodies was placed a narcomensaje (narco message) warning that “this is not a game”. Later, another notice directed to the media circulated in which it was indicated: “Nothing of the thrown bodies in Linclon ( sic ) and Porfirio Díaz is published. Nothing of the abandoned children is published in Maclovio Herrera and Ocampo.”

The address where the bodies appeared belongs to one of the murdered women, who is related to Pablo César Álvarez, head of the pNuevo Laredo criminal group Cártel del Noreste who now call themselves Los Zetas.

Pablo César was arrested in March 2016, and since he was not yet 18, he was admitted to the juvenile conservatorship located in the municipality of Güemez where he was rescued by a commando with another minor identified as Eduardo Gómez Sánchez.

Later he was recaptured and interned in the Center for the Execution of Sanctions (Cedes) of Ciudad Victoria, where he was leading the CDN, but due to riots in that prison, he was transferred to another federal prison outside of Tamaulipas.

The Northeast Cartel maintains a fierce fight against another faction of Los Zetas that calls itself Zetas Vieja Escuela in the cities of Nuevo Laredo, Victoria and Monterrey, the capital of Nuevo León.

The executions of the nine people were attributed to them by the Zetas Vieja Escuela group. In a series of messages that circulated on social networks, the killers pointed out, “What El Takia did to innocent people, life gave back to him. Sooner or later everything you do in life you pay for.”
