Seven Die in Gangland Violence in Mexico

Saturday, September 8, 2012 |

Seven people died in two separate instances of gangland violence in northern Mexico, officials told Efe on Friday.

Five people were fatally shot before dawn Friday inside a business in the city of Torreon, a source in the Coahuila state Attorney General’s Office said.

Killed were the business owner and his two adult sons, another adult and a 15-year-old boy.

“We have already identified the murdered people and an operation to find the aggressors was launched,” the source told Efe, adding that army soldiers, state and municipal people were conducting the manhunt.

Police in the business and industrial metropolis of Monterrey found two men decapitated on a street in the Arturo B. de la Garza neighborhood.

The bodies of the two victims, both in their mid-20s, were covered with blankets and bound with cable, while their severed heads were left nearby in a bag, a source in the Nuevo Leon state investigations agency told Efe.

Neighborhood residents said they saw several armed men pull up in two vehicles and unload the bodies from one of them and the bag containing the heads from the other before driving away at high speed.

Nuevo Leon and Coahuila have been wracked in recent years by a territorial struggle between the Los Zetas and Gulf drug cartels that has resulted in hundreds of deaths.

So much inadvertent comedy in these stories. I had to laugh reading "an operation to find the aggressors was launched". Really? Come on, how stupid do you think we are? I'm sure either the cops were the perps or they know exactly who did it. And yet they persist with these charades.....

Who killed the 2 people in Monterrey? Zetas or CDG? What did the message say? What part of Monterrey is this neighbourhood located.

Why cant the ZETAZ just wipe the CDG scum off the Earth already...they should never have turned on the ZETAZ like they did at the beginning. CDG got paranoid because the letter just got too damn strong too damn quickly for their liking.

If countries all of the sudden took human form America may turn out a fat fast food addict in a motorized wheelchair. Mexico though would be a Viagra fueled coke fiend raping a homeless, brain damaged, special ed student. It's a country that just screams "this is what happens when you ignore truth and logic by reflex". I love Mexico but its a whore with aids...no cure a lot of fun but a lot of misery to share.

too bad that's your world and where you live...here in the USA, go to any middle class supermarket and all the women are fit and beautiful, looking as young at 40 as the women who are poor women with less education and money. That is the America in human form i see. Its sad Mexico is in a such a state, but it will get better and when i think of Mexico in a human form, I see a nice guy with a sombrero going about his business giving everyone a saludo and a smile along the way.

Both countries have entire communities of beautiful people. I haven't been, but I'd bet some of those middle class and upper class neighborhoods in Mexico City have some real beauties.
