For a while there has been rumors of a division within the Zetas leaderhip, primarily Trevino Z-40 and Lazca, and as is the case, such rumos many times are hard to confirm but I found interesting a post by _The Magician_ in the Borderland Beat Forum,
Security Federal Sources confirm what some narcobanners hung in northern states suggested since early last month: Los Zetas, the extremely violent group of thugs who became the Gulf Cartel, faces a break in the dome. Its two main leaders, the Z-40 and the Lazca apparently are engaged in a complicated web of betrayals, experts, predicts a new and more serious bloodshed in the country.
On the morning of June 1st a group of young hung a large banner in the Garden Independence in the Historic Center of Zacatecas. Almost four teenagers while they climbed the stairs of a pedestrian bridge across the busy avenue Felix U. Gomez, the center of Monterrey, to place the same narcomensaje in the center had a large photograph of Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, El Lazca. Around the image of Lazca were seven other lords smaller mushrooms that have been killed or captured, including Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar, El you baby, Jaime Gonzalez Duran, The Hummer, Arturo Guzmán Decena, Z-1, and Raul Lucio Hernández Lettuce, The Lucky.
In those days was also uploaded to the video portal Youtube a run with the following warning: "Pay attention cartels in Mexico and other countries, this is the story of a person who has betrayed fellow teaming up with federal and deliver them and their plan is a leader of Los Zetas. " With that warning starts the video they called "the true story of Z-40", referring to Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, who along with The Lazca has control of Los Zetas, the group that operated until 2009 as the armed wing Cartel Gulf to serve Osiel Cardenas Guillen, now imprisoned in the United States.
Then another video: "New run of Los Zetas", which tells of the treachery alleged to have committed the "New Judas" as identified Treviño Morales, against some members of that organization.
On June 7 the same message with the photo of the center Lazca appeared before the municipal president of Ciudad Mante, Tamaulipas. But this time was placed at the door of a truck inside which there were 14 mutilated corpses. Click here to view. These messages and events such as the dismemberment of 49 bodies that were abandoned early on May 13 in Cadereyta, reveal a new division in one of the most powerful and diversified in the Republic, which could be a prelude to a new bathroom of blood. "Z-40" vs. "The Lazca" Security sources confirmed the federal government that it is split between Los Zetas and believe that the struggle is for leadership. Treviño Morales mentioned can even betray and to deliver to the Lazca, the only of the military elite still in the organization.
Other Army deserters who created the Zetas at the beginning of Vicente Fox have been killed or imprisoned. "The Z-40 has been betrayed and has been putting people Lazca" say the officials, who add that Lazcano has been moving between Europe and Central America. I recently was located in Costa Rica, where he arrived from Germany. Lazcano has lost a lot of people you trust and that has forced him to retreat, although the recent arrest of Jose Trevino Morales, brother of the Z-40, which may favor, they say. Jose Trevino was arrested on June 12 in the U.S., accused of laundering money for his brother. The research in this country has to do only with the cell of Los Zetas by Treviño Morales and does not involve the entire criminal organization.
The Z-40, who has been located between Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Aguascalientes, could make even more violent cartel that if he can remain in control, it has distinguished himself as an impulsive operator, say the sources. News of the zeta division are not new. Since April last year the Texas firm Stratfor intelligence realized versions in this regard: "Stratfor has heard rumors of a split between the leader of Los Zetas, Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, El Lazca, and number three in the organization, Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, Z-40. But we have not been possible to confirm this and determine if the leaders wear side was affected or caused by that division. " Versions were not there.
In June last year it was reported that Lazcano was killed in a clash with the army in Matamoros. The Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA) denied it. Narcomensaje The narcobanners that appeared in Zacatecas, Monterrey and Ciudad Mante began last June with a warning: "This goes for all of us who are near the boss Lazcano and Z-40". The authors of the text used the name of Guzmán Decena, Z-1, the soldier who founded Los Zetas and died in Matamoros in November 2002 in a clash with army excompañeros.
The appeal was to ask whether Heriberto Lazcano catch some z's heads are accidents or have been betrayals. The casualties have been with the Army or the Navy. But most have fallen into the hands of the Federal Police (PF). In the narcobanners is said that the detention of Germain Torres Jimenez, El Tatanka was "understandable to remove the heat of the U.S. government." This is because in December 2008 that was responsible for the kidnapping and murder of former agent Felix Batista FBI in Saltillo.
Then ask who gave it: Lazcano o Z-40? After being captured in Poza Rica, Veracruz, El Tatanka confessed to the PF who had left the Plaza Saltillo because he knew that members of his group wanted to eliminate it. Another of the names on the covers is to Efrain Teodoro Torres, La Chispa or Z-14, who died in the attack on March 3, 2007 in Villarin, Veracruz, where he held a horse race. His name came back to light by the arrest of the brother of the Z-40 for among those accused of laundering money for Miguel Angel Trevino, the U.S. Justice Francisco Colorado Cessa included, this in fact where he died on Z-14.
The narcobanners say that after killing his left Torres' family in the street. " There is also the name of Enrique Reyes, Rex or Z-12, arrested in June 2007 in Hidalgo by the military. "His dream was to marry you relied on the location of your wedding and putting betrayed her wedding day," says narcomensaje also question whether the Lucky it has captured the Navy when he was alone, even though "he was very careful in their safety. " Was "chance or treason?". The narcomensajes also note that Miguel Angel Trevino walked along with Daniel Perez, El Cachetes, when he was arrested in Guatemala in April 2008. "It was the second in command of yours as he fought and 40 other.
Coincidence or treason? ". They also say that the head zeta in Reynosa, Jaime Duran, The Hummer, he "interfered to 40 for that outlines more than him." Also refer exmilitar the arrest of another group's founder, The you baby, and Alberto Jose Gonzalez Xalate, El Paisa, stopped by the PF in April 2012 in Saltillo while riding in a car with his wife and three children. "He was a good friend of yours and looked after your finances and personal interests blues accident that also found him walking in a car alone with your family!"
The message ends with the phrase: "Draw conclusions ... the majority were stopped by the blues and is as easy as giving a phone number and you ganchan. "The only people who were reported to 40 you mentioned ... are all chance or treason? With whom we are safer with Lazcano or 40. " Also in video The narcovideos are more explicit: they say that "Judas" Los Zetas is Miguel Angel Trevino. We engage in a series of intrigues and murders of the same peer group and warn Lazcano that the Z-40 "knows no loyalty."
"There is a saying that is very true, or you have to trust your shadow. That you bring to one side knows no loyalty ... and you to trust your shadow, you know where you'll end up, "says" The new run of Los Zetas. " "There I leave you to remember what the Sierra de Victoria, San Luis and San Fernando, remember and make memory, you dropped the whole government and almost did not manage to," he adds.
Media versions circulating in Nuevo Leon police say Los Zetas and are divided into two camps, one of which is negotiating with disaffected groups of the Gulf Cartel to form a group and leave the Z-40. And note that Heriberto Lazcano has much time away from the main action. One of the facts that demonstrate the division of the group occurred early on May 13, when Jesus Elizondo Ramirez, El Loco, Zeta leader in Cadereyta, disobeyed the orders of the Z-40.
Captured by the military on 18 May in the town of Guadalupe, confessed that he "was ordered to Heriberto Lazcano and Miguel Angel Trevino and the head of the criminal organization in that entity, which is known as El Morro, to be coordinated with a guy nicknamed El Camarón and leave in the main square of Cadereyta bodies was going to deliver such person, together with a blanket that incriminated as responsible for the killing, "says a statement from the Department of Defense.
Elizondo told Ramirez that a representative of Camarón, José Ricardo Barajas Lopez, The Speaker, who escaped the prison of Apodaca, quoted in the village of Los Herrera, where he met with 30 gunmen who gave him the 49 bodies, "which were transported in several trucks, including a truck. " "Because of the likely consequences that would trigger an event of this nature against" El Loco violated the orders of their commanders and decided to "leave the bodies where they were later located by the authorities and not in the central square of the municipality, as he said. "
In this version, the morning of May 13 The Speaker is responsible for recording the action with his cell phone and then the video was uploaded to Youtube, but it lasted a few hours on the network. In his confessions to the military, Elizondo Ramirez confirmed that the Z-40 was in Guatemala when he was arrested the Cachetes.
The statement of the Department of Defense states that Elizondo "further noted that in March 2008 was part of a group of assassins led by Treviño Morales, who raided the department of Zacapa in Guatemala to expand control of the organization that country, registering several clashes with local groups where he died Guatemalan drug trafficker Juan Jose Leon Radon, aka Juancho Leon. "
Two days after the 49 bodies appeared, the group is splitting tens of narcobanners placed in Ciudad Valles, then finally in Monterrey and Zacatecas, which denies being behind the killing of Cadereyta. "The Zeta Group disclaims all 49 quartered in Nuevo Leon and ask them (the authorities) that chequen well, do good work as it should. Not because they go and pull a truck with bodies with a message that the Zetas were going to stop doing their job, "noted the narcomensaje.
Another of the facts showing the divisions Zetas also happened in Monterrey, when state police arrested Juan Francisco Treviño Chavez, El Quico, nephew of Treviño Morales.
Treviño Chavez was arrested along with his cousin Jesus Chavez Garcia afternoon June 12 at a mall in Monterrey by members of the State Investigation Agency (IEA). Treviño Chavez, 31, was in charge of the plaza of Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey reached to reorganize the group is still with them. Police sources reported that his capture was due to an anonymous tip that alerted members of the AEI, a corporation that never stops drug dealers of that caliber.
After capturing the fact kept secret for two days until a leak to the media brought to light the case. Treviño Chavez was the second family of Treviño Morales arrested that day: the U.S. government had already captured the younger brother of the Z-40.
