It was initially reported that a banner left at the scene had been signed by CDG (Gulf Cartel) but was in fact signed by CPS South Pacific Cartel. We will leave the messages as reported, as this fact is sketchy without actually seen the banners and we let you formulate your own conclusion.
Next to the bodies of a woman and six men was a narco-message that was signed by the Cártel del Pacífico Sur (CPS):
"THIS HAPPENED TO US FOR CALLING THE MILITARY ANNONYMOUSLY AND THIS IS ALSO GOING TO HAPPEN TO CAPTAIN BARRON AND CAPATIN CASTILLO OF THE FEDERAL POLICE. ATTE CPS."
“ESTO NOS PASO POR ANDAR HACIENDO LLAMADAS ANONIMAS A LOS MILITARES Y ESTO LES VA A PASAR AL CAPITAN BARRON Y AL CAPITAN CASTILLO DE LA FEDERAL. ATTE CPS”.
In this message signed by the CPS it indicated that those killed had made anonymous calls denouncing the aforementioned criminal cartel.

By Monday night there appeared at least three narco-banners around Cuernavaca signed by the Gulf Cartel (CDG), where they disclaim any responsibility of the slaughter that shocked the city.
