Teacher abducted from school in Tepic, Nayarit.
The lack of security in Tepic, Nayarit was evident this Tuesday morning as six heavily armed gunmen abducted a teacher in the colonia Dos de Agosto neighborhood.
The incident occurred shortly after 8:00 am outside the Ricardo Flores Magon Elementary School, located on Calle Genaro Vázquez and Primero de Mayo where according to witnesses the suspects violently abducted the teacher after she had parked her white Honda CRV.
The teacher, identified as 35 year old Martha Aide, was taken in front of dozens of witnesses, including many children, and driven away in a late model pick-up.
Classes were suspended as parents arrived to collect their children, many of whom appeared in a state of nervous shock.
A shoe and the keys to the teacher’s SUV were left behind on the street, a grim symbol of the violence gripping the small state of Nayarit as rival criminal gangs fight for control of the “plaza”.
Nayarit, whose total population barely tops one million, has already seen 167 murders linked to organized crime in the first four months of the year. April was the most violent month with 50 murders.
