Fernando Oceguera, president of the Citizens Association Against Impunity, informed the public that this Saturday that around 4pm, the bodies of several people were found in the basement of a house in colonia “Loma Bonita.” The property is believed to have once belonged to José Santiago Meza López, alias "El Pozolero".
Oceguera said that after four days of searching, investigators have found a number of people who disappeared from colonias 3 de Octubre, Maclovio Rojas, El Niño and el Vaso de la Presa.
Cadaver dogs led investigators to a yellow house with pine trees lining the driveway. SIEDO officials and ministerial state police soon discovered the presence of human remains.
(SIEDO) “Deserves a vote of confidence on behalf of the Association" Oceguera said. In the same statement he informed the public that at least 70 corpses have been found buried in an area that was considered an illegal target shooting range operated by "El Pozolero" that was referred to as a "Stand" de tiro.
“This is not the best situation for a grieving family but at least its a small bit of closure that can be brought to those who want to know what happened to their loved ones." said Oceguera.
He added that he has begun calling the families of identified victims, and to publicly denounce the actions of Santiago Meza. As the exhumation of the bodies continues, the number of victims of this terrible crime may rise.
|Santiago Meza was arrested last January of 2009. He is beleivd to have participated in the murder and disposal of over 300 victims of Teodoro Eduardo García Simental, alias "El Teo" who was at the time allied with the Arellano-Felix cartel|
