The shell casings of a 9mm gun were the hallmark of two different executions that occurred yesterday (Monday) in different locations located in Naucalpan in the state of Mexico. The victims were two men who were handcuffed and given the coup de grace. They were each found around 500 meters away from each other.
Yesterday morning (Monday), municipal police received two alert calls. The calls were complaints from residents of two different locations that reported the discovery of two bodies.
Tied with shoelaces
One of the discoveries occurred in the first section of San Rafael Chamapa. There, on a sloped street, occurred one of the executions.
It was at 6:00 in the morning when municipal police received the call from inhabitants of the street Principal. They indicated that the body of a man was found on a curb.
The victim was a man in his 30’s who had a gunshot to the head. The shoelace from his own shoes was used to tie up his hands. Although the officers looked through his pockets, they found no identification on him.
The police were attending to the complaint when they received the order to move to a second location.
Kneeling on a bench
Although belonging to different colonies, the second site was located a few meters from where the officers were previously.
Upon arriving to the colony San Lorenzo Totolinga, from the same municipality, they found the second body.
Kneeling in front of a bench on the street Diaz was a man who was shot twice in the head. It was of an individual around 30 years old, who was wearing a white sweatshirt that was used to cover his face.
The individual was also wearing tennis shoes and one of the shoelaces was used to tie up his hands.
In both crimes, officers found shell casings of a 9mm gun. From the similarity of the evidence found in both crime scenes, investigators believe that the crimes are related, and that the homicides may have been committed by members of organized crime.
