Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

A man hung and burned from bridge in Monterrey

Monday, June 13, 2011 |






Another man was hung this evening from the Revolucion overpass above Chapultepec boulevard that was the scene of the hanging of two men last Wednesday morning. The hanging this evening occurred on the opposite side of the overpass from last week's incident.

The murder this evening occurred at approximately 7:00pm under similar circumstances, with gunmen stopping on the overpass, pulling the male victim out of a vehicle and hanging him in full view of hundreds of horrified motorists and pedestrians.

However, today the gunmen doused the victim with a flammable liquid and set him on fire as he hung from the overpass.

There were no reports of a message signed by the killers being left at the scene in this evening's incident.

The spokesman for the Nuevo Leon state Department of Public Safety, Jorge Domene, urged the Monterrey Municipal Police to redouble their vigilance against these deadly criminal acts, especially at locations such as the Revolucion overpass.

"Municipal law enforcement has to join the effort and also do their part and together we can minimize these types of events that have manifested themselves especially in the last two weeks," said the official.

Domene said that video from security cameras was being reviewed to gather evidence of the perpetrators of this and last week's hangings.

Earlier in the day a pursuit and shootout between an Army patrol and gunmen in two pickups resulted in the deaths of three of the gunmen in on eof the vehicles and the seizure of several weapons and other equipment.

The incident occurred in the Colonia Topo Chico in northern Monterrey.

Th second vehicle was able to escape during the pursuit along Del Carmen and Almazan avenues.



Guadalupe, Nuevo Leon.

The dismembered body that was discovered inside a bullet riddled taxi on Avenida Plutarco Elias Calles, 500 yards from the Municipal police station, was identified as Jesus Fidencio Salazar Puente, a municipal police commander that had joined the force in 2008.

Salazar Puente had reportedly been abducted by gunmen Sunday evebibg.

The body was found in the back seat of the taxi next to the head which was inside a container. A message found inside the taxi was addressed to Coronel Enrique SanMiguel, the head of Guadalupe's municipal public safety forces.

A minor was shot in the knee from a stray bullet when the gunmen who drove the taxi to the scene riddled it with gunfire before fleeing.

My understanding is that they left him at the Catholic church... Yes, it is about 500 yards down from the police station there.

This is escalating quickly, Monterrey will be a full war zone if this continues, so, not only are they executed, they are hanged, set on fire, and shot, in few of hundreds of people.


Seems like Zeta/CDG are going tit for tat in Nuevo Leon.

Brito, you're being the idiot here, and not me.

'just like the USA huh?..burnt bodys hanging off of bridges... bet you pass by this kind of thing every day on your way to starbucks ...right .....'

First off, let's get one thing clear! I hate Starbucks and never go there. ..lol... Don't like the coffee and don't like the ambiance. Got that through your thick head, Brito?

Second off, I never said that Northern Mexico is as safe as the US and 'just like the US. I did say that you were exaggerating when you talk about hearing gunfire in the background while talking on the phone to Monterrey. In fact, you were rumor mongering, were you not?

Yes, I know! It's the IN thing in Northern Mexico right now, and unfortunately some of the rumors are true, while many, if not most, or not. Your gunfire in the background stuff was just a little too much to take seriously. Monterrey is not Mogadishu.

FYI, too, my wife and kid happen to be about 500 yards away from the Catholic church right now, in a direction further away from the police sub station where this guy worked at before he was murdered and dumped. So knock off the bullshit about how I supposedly write about these events from a totally safe and secure, air conditioned hideout. That's not exactly true, Mr Big exMarine guy.

It's my living heart that is visiting her grandma inside this damn war zone! If it was my decision alone, she wouldn't be there at all, but it is not just my decision. Like many families, Mom has the last word about these things. Having hauled her around several previous summers to Nicaragua and Colombia I'm hardly in the spot to where I can veto calls like this one based on worries about security issues on the ranch, so to speak.

My kid was even talking about trying to earn some money this summer by working as a baggage clerk at the grocery store near by. I discouraged that idea, Brito. Not this summer, PLEASE. So, on my way to a better than Starbucks coffee shop for a quick cup. Over and out, lito'brito.

I don't know but if they (military/authorities) really wanted to apprehended the individuals responsible for these frequent bridge hangings..maybe they need to setup surveillance at the sight covertly. It's a little ridiculous that the cartels can freely operate/dump bodies in broad daylight in busy sections of town with impunity.

FYI: The person hung on the bridge was a woman. Makes it that much more horrific.

"FYI: The person hung on the bridge was a woman. Makes it that much more horrific"

Initial reports state the body was that of a woman, later Milenio and El Norte changed that to a male.

Didn't your parents teach you to tell the truth ?, yes Brito was right, you denied that there was out of control violence in fact you stated that " It is not anymore violent than any City in the USA", why not tell the truth for once ?.

'lito'brito said...

you can dish it out but you can't take it can you t'ardy ...

dry your eyes crybaby..

so you finally admit it is a war zone huh?

better take another toke and sit down ...breathe...

i have not made any thing up that i have ever posted here ..you say i am an ex marine .. i will neither confirm or deny ...nice try ..pero no bueno pendejo

Monterrey has been unsafe for a long time ..beginning two years ago...and you have pooh poohed it all along...i have seen the fresh blood...and have seen the sicarios in the streets ..and have heard the gunfire..deveras

so have a lot of other posters here ..but you say they are all lying

you will get no sympathy for me ...especially after you said Monterrey deserves it ...and after the way you always attack those who support some law and order...so buck up tough man...

the time to fall apart is not now ...and that goes for your little army of nut riding anymouse flys as well

A nice moment of clarity there Ardent, but you have to be fair. You HAVE repeatedly claimed that the violence in Monterrey is no more than it is in the US. In fact, last week you talked about happily putting your wife and child on a bus to Monterrey because it is so safe.

Just to make it very very clear. I actually LIVE in Monterrey and have for 11 years. I also used to run a plant in Ethiopia. A few years ago, I would tell everyone that Mexico will "never be as insecure as Africa". But I was wrong.

Random acts of brutality are now common. Even over the last 4+ years I felt relatively safe in San Pedro as the crime seemed to concentrate in Guadalupe & Apodaca. But like a cancer it has spread to suck the lifeblood from every area of the city.

Yes, we still go out. But we go home early. We no longer go to the ranch. We avoid much of downtown. And yes, we do regularly hear gunshots (or a lot of backfires :) - not all the time, but more than we should.

When I travel, I am required to fly, even if the distance is short. Around town, the company supplies bodyguards and a lightly armored SUV for all senior managers. They do not undertake this because they want to spend an extra couple of million a year.

The realities here in Monterrey are simple. But there still is a certain mentality that pervades the Mexican mindset - if I bury my head in the sand, the problem will go away. Partly because there is little confidence in the police or government, so people keep their mouths shut. And partly because people have become desensitized to the violence. Life has to go on, regardless of the circumstances.

Frankly, you got called out fairly today Ardent. You DO take a position regularly that the crime in Mexico is overplayed.

You are, quite simply, wrong. And I would NEVER (underline NEVER) put my wife and kids on a bus in the region!

And God help me for agreeing with 'brito on anything :)

Incompetency seems to be the group think in Mexico. Mexico is on the verge of a lost generation. None of these "sicarios" are wealthy in any sense of the word, let alone cash. A new stolen truck and robbed money is what the goal is? I doubt 95% of the organization ever sees the lucrative proceeds from the drug trade they so eagerly murder for. What a nation of looser degenerates, this is no longer the actions of a few, but a nation of people that either look the other way or participate in such horrendous acts. Mexico is now a festering sore subservient to crime with no morals or values. The government should let its citizens bare arms in order to defend themselves since the army, based on previous hangings on the same bridge within a week, cannot muster the leadership to issue a surveillance team to prevent brutality like this from occurring over and over again. "Looser ass pathetic army". The people need to rise up! take up arms! defend themselves against the ills of a corrupt society and say no to corruption and complacency. It's gone to far, this is the only solution.

I wrote a long reply to 'brito and the guy who lived in Ethiopia and BB 'lost it', I guess? The having lived in Ethiopia guy wrote...

'A few years ago, I would tell everyone that Mexico will "never be as insecure as Africa". But I was wrong.'

No you weren't. Now you are since you have begun acting as if somehow, you who now lives in Monterrey, is living in what????,,,, ' The Horn of the Americas'?... lol.

'Frankly, you got called out fairly today Ardent. You DO take a position regularly that the crime in Mexico is overplayed.'

You are yet another case of folk acting all hysterical and exaggerating things out of all proportionality, Anony. The odds of you or Brito losing your heads is a little higher than of either one of you being hit by a comet. .... but still just barely.
