The alleged photo of blindfolded and abducted Diego Fernandez de Cevallos has some visual similarities with images of suspected Zetas that were also abducted by drug cartels, and interrogated on video, then usually executed.
For example, a recent video in which an alleged Zeta member is questioned by the Gulf Cartel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70ZM1zGQgJI) appears with a dark background and his eyes blindfolded.
Another video released in 2005 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GPjONwQMTo) shows an interrogation of four suspected Zetas sitting on the floor with black plastic curtain on the background. On the full version of this video the shirtless suspected Zetas is executed before the camera.
In the alleged image of the abducted Diego Fernandez de Cevallos, there is a man that looks very much like the Panista Diego who is shown without a shirt, blindfolded, and on the back is a black plastic curtain. In past incidents the plastic curtain has been used during executions to avoid splattering blood on the walls or have also been used to hide characteristics of the room.
It has been reported that since 2004 Diego Fernandez de Cevallos has had alleged ties to the Juarez Cartel, which supposedly now has an alliance with the Zetas and the Beltran Leyva at war against the Gulf Cartel.
Also recalled that SDPnoticias.com announced last Saturday that according to sources close to the federal government, the PGR had received a purported picture of Diego Fernandez de Cevallos right after his abduction, and it was investigating whether it was a fake manipulated in Photoshop.
