A total of six individuals have been killed or were found dead in ongoing drug and gang violence in Zacatecas state, including three armed suspects who died in an encounter with a Mexican Army unit, according to Mexican news accounts.

According to a news item posted on the website of El Sol de Zacatecas news daily, a unit with the Mexican 97th Infantry Battalion exchanged gunfire with armed suspects who were travelling aboard two vehicles Saturday morning.

The gun battle took place in a location about 20 kilometers west of Fresnillo municipality where the army unit was on patrol.  The unit apparently crossed paths with the small convoy and were fired on as armed suspects attempted to flee.  Mexican Army return fire killed three.

One unidentified Mexican Army soldier was wounded in the encounter.

An undisclosed number of armed suspects surrendered to the unit, and the two vehicles were seized.

Three other individuals were killed in Zacatecas state, according to news items posted on the website of El Sol de Zacatecas.
  • Two woman were found dead on a road in Zacatecas municipality Wednesday.  They were identified as Gloria Guadalupe Gomez Ruiz, 25, Zacatecas and  Laura Ivone Rodriguez Cervantes, 22 , of Guadalupe municipality.  Both victims were found naked and had been tortured by a beating.  They were strangled in the location they were found.  Zacatecas Procuraduria General de Justicia or attorney general, Arturo Nahle Garcia later dismissed speculations that the women were part of a wave of femicides in the state, suggesting that the victims died from local criminal gangs.
  • An unidentified man was found beaten to death between Jerez and Fresnillo municipalities Saturday afternoon.  The victim was found near the village of Purisima del Maguey with a message from organized crime. The content of the message was not disclosed in the news item.  However, reports did say the victim was caught in an intergang struggle in the area.

  2. Thats pretty messed up that they instantly suggest that the young dead women were involved with criminal groups, i dont see how two tortured naked bodys can be classified so quickly as workin for cartels, they seem to be victims of some crazy assholes who are takin advantage of the fact that the police spend more time shakin people down or shoppin for the biggest bribe than they do doing actual police work. For all we know these women could have been killed by an english tourist who admires jack the ripper

  4. In 1937 alone Joseph Stalin executed 900,000 of his own people because he was "cleaning". As long as the people of mexico dance for the shiniest coin we are gonna be fucked. If people choose the think for themselves and not be influenced by ignorance. Read and find out for yourself and don't believe the hype of gossip or stupidass songs. Chapo Guzman and the zetas are no different to stalin. Go to Mexico and find out for yourself and have the balls to see with your own eyes. People are dying every fucking day because of this. Don't get online and write about stuff you havent seen or lived. Open your mind. Fuck you bb forum! You guys are sooo fucking one sided.

  8. I don't like your disrespect man. Don't come on this site to create drama. Be an adult. This is a form of media that is trying to be kept in the shadows. but I have very close contact with people from my hometown in mex on how life is. A veces se oyèn cosas que una no quiere ecuchar. Sometimes you hear things you.didn't wanna hear. Chris covert is a great writer, goes straight in with all the details. Chivis too, I enjoy the info to pass on. The way things are in fresnillo is people are scared to answer thier phone. The extorsion calls are real. They see.you have.a nice car. They have the polizetas pull u over for minor traffic violation get ur info. They call you and basically describe you and tell you somebody in your fam will get.snatched.up if you don't pay 2000 pesos. They got government.radar that tracks your movement. More to come.
