CHIHUAHUA.- By way of narco banners, the armed wing of the Juárez cartel claim that Chapo and his organization are the one's responsible for the recent murder of a human rights activist.
CHIHUAHUA, Chih.- 12/22/10 - La Línea accused the Sinaloa cartel and its leader El Chapo Guzmán of the murder of Marisela Escobedo, through the use of narco banners, according to sdpnoticias.com.
This happened almost right after members of the Sinaloa cartel offered to find Marisela's killers and directly accused La Línea and Los Zetas of the murder, in addition to suggesting that the state government was providing these two organizations with manpower and political aid.
The two banners were hung by La Línea around midnight this past Tuesday on Bernardo Norzagaray and Viaducto Díaz Ordaz boulevards, at the intersection of Paseo de la Victoria and Francisco Villarreal Torres.
Initial reports indicated that the municipal police who first responded to the scene and began to gather evidence, where mistaken as the ones responsible for hanging the banner, and were arrested upon the arrival of the federal police. After some confusion the two municipals were released without charges.
"To Chapo and his boys Flaco and Marrufo: you are not fooling anyone, we know you pulled that bullshit with the lady in Chih, and you burned down a wood supply store to frame us and make us look bad. Don't act like bitches, why don't you come after us and leave the innocent women and children out of this. ATTE:_____________".
Interpol Releases Sketch of Marisela Escobado's Killer
The International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) in México issued a bulletin to its 188 partner countries to look for anyone who matches the sketch of a man who is believed to be Marisela's killer.
According to Paola Rojas, communications coordinator for the state, on 12/21/10 authorities asked that a sketch be made, using the evidence of the tape and eye witness accounts.
Chihuahua governor, César Duarte further stated that preliminary investigations point to involvement from Los Zetas. The victim, Marisela Escobedo was protesting the light sentence and release of Sergio Barraza, who is a member of that criminal organization and the man who brutally murdered her daughter.
State authorities are working closely with the international organization to locate Barraza, who is presumed to still have the support of Los Zetas in Aguascalientes and in San Luis.
