Sinaloa Hell Has No End In Sight..As Death toll Rises Today by 23+

The horrifc violence continues in Sinaloa, today the violence primarily centered in Culiacan and Guasave.  The following is a recap so far, however as I write this there remains 6 additional hours in the day.
Sinaloa Governor confirmed yet another clash and at the same time attempted to assure the public to remain calm as at no time has the government lost control of  security in the state.  He went on to confirm the clash at Estacion Bamoa and confirmed of the 12 killed in the clash 10 were soldiers and 2 were gunmen. Note: the Sinaloa State Attorney reported the reverse as 10 gunmen dead and 2 soldiers killed, and all of the later reports also stated 2 soldiers dead.  While the majority of publications reported 12 deaths, others reported 10-13. 
In the Sierra de Choix, they continue to find more bodies in part from the clashes that erupted last Friday and have continued.  The impoverished people of the hills are terrified, walking miles to place a call and plead for assistance in evacuation their children to safety.   One mother who walked miles for help to evacuate her 14 year old daughter said “They know things are dreadful  and each day passes to continued violence.  The trucks pass and ignore our pleas for help, and do nothing, it is because we are poor”.

Culiacan suffered a burst of murders in various townships. The following includes some of those deaths.
8:30AM a body was discovered, found with his ankles and hands tied behind his back with rope.  4.9MM shells were found at the scene.
The body of a young person was found under a bridge at about 2:00PM.  The body was seen being thrown under the bridge by gunmen in a vehicle.  After depositing the body they poured gasoline and set the body on fire. Authorities reported the body had signs of being tortured for several days.
A completely burned body was found at the bottom of Cerrode Elefante.  Passerbys saw what they described as a steaming heap.  Upon closer inspection they realized it was a corpse.
At 8:30AM From a moving vehicle a man was executed while driving his Chevrolet Berretta.  Gunmen in a second vehicle chased the man eventually able to fire shots killing the man near the township of Costa Rica.

8:56...here is the problem...I saw debate but those of the governors words said differently. I think I will include that fact that there is a difference in reporting..I believe it was the state atty that reported 10 gunmen, but I will check....Thank you! Paz, Chivis..

I have been so curious as to what is happening in Sinaloa...There is no doubt that a war is occurring! Who are the players Chivis? Is this an all out assault by CDS's enemies? El Neutron

There is a way of selling drugs without killing people.
If there was a Global Response to the Civil War going on in Mexico, and an invading Authority came there to "restore peace" there might be a unification then. They should try this because with the mass elections coming up its very possible a few Politicians, just might start campaigning on a restoration of Mexico.

There was a sit down with ALL the Families of The American Mafia in The Appalachian Mountains in 1957. It was to from a Unity that worked till 1985. Something could be learned from at least attempting the same.

The numbers are way higher than that. Control? The government never had it. Sinaloa is finally going to taste its own medicina. All this killing. And yet there is no shortage of drugs, and the price is still the same. Get coca out of the game and they will fall.but who is going to do something that stupid. $$$$ la. Coca comes mostly from Colombia

Amigo..I checked many publications and mostly saying the count as the attorney general and you pointed out. I added that information. I also found numbers to be from 10-13 which is frustrating, but seems 10-2 with 2 being soldiers is correct. Thanks again for your comment....chivis

What's the plan??? Challenge the sovereignty of the Federal government? Scare the pants off of the Obama administration? That they might be faced with an obviously Narco-controlled State?

it would be nice if you could tell us who is killing who. I appreciate your reporting but you are doing the same as the mexican news does and just stating that cartels are killing eachother but not being specific on who it is. I imagine it's Matazlecos against Sinaloa but it would be nice to know who's winning

CDS vs Beltran-Leyva? who is fighting in Sinaloa?

@10:38PM - This is not new for Sinaloa, may be new for other states but not here. We had similar situations in early 70's. Different years, different people, bullets from same calibers, 40mm were not around, but M60's, M16's AK'47's, as lethal as today's weapons. What we didn't have back then were so many drugged gunslingers. Dead is dead, as painful as when the Roman empire existed.

Man,how do you people expect the people on this blog to know who is bangin on who?They do the same thing as us,check all the blogs and news,Spanish and English speaking.Its a confused battle going on,but its not hard to imagine who the players are.BLO,Los M,Z,AGAINST CDS crews.They bound to run into each,but it might have been an ambush gone a little wrong,you know Los M love those ambush.Just have to wait till the smoke clears a little.

The people that were fighting were people of Isidro Flores Meza aka "El Chapo Isidro" against the people of the military, which they are also fighting against the Sinaloa Cartel in Sinaloa.
