A total of 20 execution style murders have swept the state of Sinaloa. In the city of Culiacan, the capitol of Sinaloa, thirteen bodies were abandoned in vehicles that were set on fire in two separate locations.
Far from weakening, the cartel Los Zetas, in partnership with Milenio, Beltrán Leyva and Carrillo Fuentes, have strengthened their expansion in the country entering territory formerly dominated by the Sinaloa cartel and its allies.
This was revealed by a report published by Proceso magazine this Sunday that says that the governments of these states are living critical moments in the "Zeta invasion."
Twenty six bodies were discovered bound and gagged in vehicles abandoned in the heart of Guadalajara.
The report notes that in the case of Sinaloa, the first state to report a massacre from the invasion a few days ago in Culiacan, which was followed by Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco, this is believed to be an action by Los Zetas in response to the massacre in Boca del Rio, Veracruz, a stronghold of Los Zeta. The military had already warned the government of these states of the arrival of numerous groups of commandos of this criminal organization.
From the beginning of the first week of this month the Mexican Military Intelligence sent correspondance to Sinaloa governor Malova that criminal cells had gained momentum in the center of the state and several commandos of hitmen had managed to enter the territory controlled by the organization of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman and Ismael El Mayo Zambada.
According to the information of the state government, the group was that of Los Zetas, that since the middle of the year is fighting to heat up the plaza in an alliance with the Beltran Leyva organization, who have established their center of operation in Ahome and Guasave, and the Carrillo Fuentes are partially operating in Navolato, Angostura and Salvador Alvarado.
