The message of the Narcobanner found at the scene:
"No more extortions, no more deaths of innocent people! VeraZetas of the state of Veracruz, there is a need for more members of the ministry public, to the commander of La Avi, Castillo Torres, this will also happen to you all or how we executed those with gun shots. To the people of Veracruz do not allow yourselves to be extorted, do not pay any more quotas (fines), if you do, is because you want to. These people is all they know to do"
