According to unofficial police reports, Mario González Rodríguez, brother of the former prosecutor, Patricia Gonzalez, was found dead and buried in northern Chihuahua.
The location of the body was obtained after the arrest of a group of gunmen last night in Chihuahua, after an armed confrontation with federal police, military and agents of the Attorney General.
Among those detained is Jorge "El Chuleton" Gutiérrez Corral who was the operational coordinator Cipol (state police) at a time when Raul Grajeda Domínguez was the State Secretary of Public Security.
Authorities are also investigating whether some of the individuals arrested are municipal police.
In the confrontation two suspected kidnappers were wounded, including the former police chief, who after receiving several gunshot wounds remains hospitalized in a local hospital under heavy police surveillance.
Hours after the incident, it was reported three men, apparently kidnapped by this group, were rescued. Initial reports cited the possibility of Mario González Rodríguez being one of the men rescued, but this version was denied hours later by the governor César Duarte.
Authorities seized an unspecified number of high-powered weapons and uniforms similar to those used by men who appear in the video where the brother of former Attorney Patricia González, 'confesses' to a series of crimes and accuses his sister and former governor, José Reyes Baeza, of being linked to the Juarez Cartel.
