Mexican authorities have charged 12 men and two women in connection with 72 bodies found in a series of mass graves in San Fernando, Tamaulipas.

The 14 are charged with kidnapping people of passenger buses in Tamaulipas and San Luis Potosi.

Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office (PGR) identified the suspects as:

1.Sergio Córdova-Martínez
2.Julio César Lugo-Chaca
3.José Mauro Oñate-Rodríguez
4.Samuel Moreno-Saavedra
5.Edgar Sosa-Solís o Edgar Sosa Aguilar-Solís
6.Juan Pablo Cabrera-Escalante
7.Elfego Cruz-Martínez
8.Júpiter Almer Cano-Guerra o Júpiter Almer Cano-Sierra
9.Adela Yudith Ochoa-Marmolejo
10.Edgar René Méndez-Acosta (a) “El Barbas”
11.Javier Méndez-San Juan (a) “El Tripa”
12.Juan Carlos Tovar-Gallegos
13.Juan Carlos García-Cabrera (a) “El Ñoño”
14. Miryam Dinora Pérez-Alvarado (a) “La Marrana"

PGR officials said the first nine suspects worked for the Zetas drug cartel.

Authorities arrested the first nine suspects back on April 3rd in an incident where officials seized weapons, military uniforms, vests and metal plates.

Mexican soldiers arrested last five on Thursday in Mendez, Tamaulipas where they were caught driving a counterfeit Mexican Navy truck.

Forensic experts are still working to identify the 72 bodies, which were taken to morgues in Matamoros and Reynosa.

Witnesses to the kidnappings told the El Universal and El Norte newspapers that armed and uniformed men stormed the buses demanding to see identification papers.

Many had initially thought the men were officials searching for illegal immigrants from Central and South America but were surprised the men took people who were Mexican nationals.

For the last 60 years the joke in Texas always was that if a Mexican in Mexico had a gun he was a cop, his income was what he could steal or extort,he would fashon a uniform,of sorts,and would fend for hiself, as a kid I saw this,nobody cared because it was Mexico.I guess nobody thought that such a lax half assed approch to law enforcment would mutate into police becomimg full fleged criminals,as you look back on it you can see how the present holocost grew and matured. The ultimate betrayal of the public is when the authrity becomes Predatory, this is what the lazy corrupt governing class in Mexico allowed,F them.
