Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

11 die in Sinaloa state

Monday, March 4, 2013 |

A total of 11 individuals, including four municipal police agents have been killed in 24 hours in the western Mexican state of Sinaloa, including seven found dead in one incident Monday morning, according to Mexican news accounts.

A news account which appeared on the website of El Universal news daily said the seven victims were found aboard a Jeep SUV which had been incinerated near the village of  Ojo de Agua in the Aguaverde section of Rosario municipality, in far southern Sinaloa state.

Four of the victims were local police agents identified as José Guadalupe Toledo Barron, David Vazquez Canizales, Antonio Cárdenas Aguiar and Luis Alberto Crespo Peralta.  Two of three other victims were civilians identified as Gustavo Salcido Corrales and José Alfredo Lopez Cazarez.

Police found 90 spent cartridge casings at the scene from .45 caliber, 9mm, AR-15 and AK-47 rifles.  The victims were reportedly kidnapped Sunday night.

Rosario municipality is about 20 kilometers south of Mexico Federal Highway 40, Mexico's northernmost contiguous east-west highway running coast to coast, from the Sinaloa port city of Mazatlan to northern Tamaulipas state.

According to the news account four other unidentified individuals were murdered in Sinaloa state, two in San Ignacio municipality, which is north of Rosario and two in the community of El Tecomate.

Excellent article. It is informative and easy to read. It is a shame that we can read about 11 people killed as if it were expected, regarding Mexico. Abduct and kill police agents in the U.S. and the government will unleash hell upon you. I wish the cartels would get spanked hard for these autrocities.

March 5, 2013 at 12:37 AM Dude, the difference is that these "police agents" were almost certainly working for one of the cartel factions. You have the idea that they are innocent victims doing their jobs - NOT!

Anonymous said...

And you're do sure of this because????? While it's unfortunately / more than likely, unless you have some insider information I don't think it's right to make assumptions about the dead. Were those 70 migrants involved / associated? Didn't think so. Regardless that's not justification for what's going on - the problem begins with the level of impunit. The reason the US government will find/prosecute/kill cop-killers is due to.a (at least.semi) functioning justice / L.E. system.

Whoever mentioned.Chapo Isidro - is this in the area.he operates in?

I wonder if the people in Sinaloa that support the narcos and the capos enjoy living in this violent environment?

Chapo isidro and his Maxatlecos operate in Northern and Southern Sinaloa,as well as in other states. But according to sicarios of chapo isidro that have been captured he has around 300 elements in Northern Sinaloa.

Let me.put it like this....MZ moved Familia and assets to Tijuana, and lives in the green zone, as MZ made a pact with CAF /FSO , To operate there , all the tunnels they finding are chapos, MZ people are in decline in Sinaloa , ask M1, also MZ cells feuding with g.n. cells , and in mexicali , macho Prieto left MZ as well, read the The New Zeta article about this...if you don't believe it, I can't change a person's perspective..


MZ grupo made pact with arch rivals of JAGL, the CAF /fso to do business and live there with payment. That is is how los.Garibay got tied to CAF again....Macho Prieto robbed MZ people of much dope and gave it to cells of JAGL to sell.back in the market...also la Cabrera was JAGL group tied then broke away and tied to
MZgrupo

Its either you grow up supporting the narcos or you leave the state,because thats the way it is.

Theres very few people that support the government atleast ,in la sierra where my family is from,because they never have gotten help,attention,or any kind of support from the government.There are no jobs and no form of making money,so they do what they can,grow weed,heroin,and that large portion of people that were left LiTerately to starve by the government,next thing you know become very organized and Pam you get a Carillo Fuentes, a Chapo and a huge number of followers that rather support the narcos,most of the time its an economic problem,and since the government turned their backs on them is only logical they do the same.

SO they unite and became organized to prevent intruders,Mexican Government as they see the military that arrives occasionally,only to go around robbing and killing the only way they know,violently.When the military comes the narcos act as civialians and hide their guns but the military know they arent wanted and most of time are received by gunfire.

I rather support drug traffickers that provide jobs for their community than the mexican.government that can care less about its people.

So its like this,im talking about la sierra madre,you support Narcos or you starve to death along with your family.What you think the large majority of the people choose? Try not having nothing to eat for days,it feels great.

why VZ tried to cut a seperate deal with the DEA is still mind boggling..when you already had the DEA in your pocket, my Intel says he tried to cut a seperate deal.to try and get a CIA deal too. Cuz they got everybody from beginning to end on this one , trust me VZ is being debriefed and is exposing all to tell..

There are some other things one could try...like move, relocate, go where the opportunities are! It's an excuse to say...I have to do this or I will starve! The same excuse your coming up with for justifying criminal activity...is the same path that will lead to a "families" demise! There are literally hundreds of thousands of Mexican's, who find a "better way," than getting involved in cartel business...the cartel business is the quick and easy way..but it's the quickest way to destroy your family..either by death or incarceration!

The book "daughters of juarez" was the first book I read about juarez and I couldn't believe half of it until I read a few more. It is obviously the police who are doing half of this crap.

It is well known fact that MZ is paying CAF to move his work thru TJ. Also weren't some of MZ nieces kidnapped in TJ a while back. If MZ was at war with CAF, why would the nieces go into TJ??!!??? One thing that has been said and I don't know how true it is, but apperantly when M1 El Ondeado found out that his son was killed by an order from CDS he went crazy and Chapo told him to cool his shit or he would be dealt with. Then Ondeado gets killed. So apperantly El Chapo turned in Ondeado and in return MZ turned in El Fantasma. Ondeado was MZ right hand man, Fantasma was Chapos operator. Makes sense tit-for-tat.... Now I've herad that Macho Prieto has beef with MZ?? I thought he controlled Sonora for MZ, also heard that MP won't go into Culiacan because he knows that as soon as he steps into Sinaloa he's dead. So is he still from MZ group, or with CDS?? According to a comment earlier he stole from MZ and re-sold it to Chapo, I would imagine tat that would be a sure death sentence if he did that!!

M1 was abandoned by MZ and Macho Prieto was pushed out to Mexicali because of a switch of his org.
Tijuana is MZ greenzone, cuz he paying.the tax 10 fold to have a safe have for his Familia as they can stay in Tijuana or get into California with ease. It's believed that Chapo Guzman didn't.agree with the deal by MZ and more tension between the cds defactos arose. That's why all the tunnels in Tijuana are JAGL owned and operated. Gordo Mayito bodyguard was captured.in Tijuana as well as some of MZ nephews , The nieces were abducted against policy that is why that perpetrator was quickly dealt with. CAF the Horse and La Jefa made the pact happen with MZ.

El H runs BLO not Mochomo .BLO is still at war with CDS.Chapo Mayo Azul are partners with independent business in different markets sometimes their cells clash with each other.M1 son was killed by Arturo people along with zetas.M1 was killed by marines wrong place wrong time.Fantasma was captured by his mistake he was no longer a part of Chapo's inner circle. Macho Prieto works for Mayo .El Lic works for El Chapo.Its an illegal business that is run like a corporation .Nacho was not betrayed he was still working with Chapo but in an independent manner ,additional information is classified and cannot be disclosed.

@ 9:59AM

Yeah, i remember hearing about Muletas sister, she was released a few days after unharmed, but was her husband/boyfriend beat or killed? I remeber hearing about El Teo beign backed specifically by El Chapo since teo and muletas were the ones shooting up TJ and leaving bodies "encobijados" wrapped up in blankets. It would make sense they worked under chapo since they were a guns-a-blazing style, and not low key like MZ. Funny how you always hear about chapos crews making all the noise, gente nueva in Juarez turned that into a war zone. The only one making noise for MZ was El Ondiado who didn't seem to give a fuck about who he killed. That swould make sense that MZ chose to get rid of him since he was coked up and drawing heat to himself and his crew, every other day they had a new corrido for him, shit he was actually posing for pictures. I remember reading somewhere that he was the most photographed capo. Every other capo/boss who has been photographed, those pictures are 10 years old or older, but not M1, he released pictures of himself as often as they released corridos of him. If it weren't for all the bloodshed and innocent victims caught up in this mess this would actually be entertaining and intriguing to follow. I don't feel bad for the crew memebers that get killed since they made the decision to join a cartel but I do feel for the inocent civilians and bystanders that get hurt when they are trying to make an honest living.

True statement bro,you actually made me stop and think.Sometimes we lose the perspective that innocent people are being made to hurt in one way or another.Bro,it goes without saying we would rather not have this happening.About Ondeado bro,it does seem as though he started to believe all the corridos and shit about him,i think it shows he maybe was becoming a liability.You see the story about the mantas in Coahuila?El Dannys operate in Durango etc,heating it up you think,i kinda doubt it was put up by Z42,they been havin a war with Cabreras and anyone else they can think of?

I don't take pleasure of reading about this things, but it's reality. No matter how much the media bans or they choose not to report it does not change the fact that it doesnt happen. The way I see it this is the equivalent of a soap opera. Everybody is turning on each other, killing each other, setting each other up and trying to get the upper hand. Like I said befor if it weren't for the victims this would be fun to watch, but yeah we loose sight that whole families, mothers, sisters, kids are suffering becuse a loved one caught a stray bullet while they were trying to make it to saftey, or how business owners are beign shaken down and if they don't pay they get rob or business get burnt or worse kiled. This has gone beyond trafficking to outright terrorism. Back in the days when Rafael Caro Quintero and the old school real mafiosos were around there was none of this nonsense going on. Poeple weren't extorted tehy could actually walk out heir house without fear and now, you cant go to a corner store with out fear that you're going to get levantado, beat or killed. I read that story about 42 threating the pblisher, come on that his job, publish newspapers. You don't want your name in the paper then start creating chaos that puts your name in the paper.

May God bless all the innocent and keep the kids and women out of it. May all this nonsense come to and end soon.
