Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Past Images of Abducted Zetas Similar to the Photo of Diego

Monday, May 24, 2010 |


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.

How long is this (and other stories here) going to
run? I really miss hearing about the latest from Nvo
Leon, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Tamaulipas, Mexico, Jalisco, Mich..all you've had lately is AP, U.S. TV,
Washington Post. Is the govt. "sitting" on bad news
and "wishing" for a gringo hoard on Memorial Day and
"solving" the Tourism problem. Are you being hassled by either govt? What about the newly discovered "Somalian Terrorist" coming up through Mx? What rewards in Mx? Chinese, Africans have been coming up through Central America, Mex for 5 years.
