I have family that lives in these areas and they told me that apparently this happened between and two factions of CDS. Los Chachos(allied with Chapos people) and Los Mayitos(Zambadas people), not sure if this is true, but coming from the people that live there, almost can't deny it.

@ March 2, 2012 12:53 PM .Hermano,sounds as if it could be true,settling of scores,between factions,and the big dogs are allowing it to sort itself out?Who knows for sure,i wonder if El Fantasma is some of the fallout from all of this?Who knows?It does get complicated when the same crew is involved.I don't even know whether to believe it was the well known El Fantasma,who has been killed,and i sure don't think it El Bravo.But who knows !
