The government of Hidalgo, has continually boasted of having much less violence and organized crime than other states, but the reality is quite different. For years, tested in an accurate way, the state has been protected by the leadership of Los Zetas.
Remember that the main controls of the criminal organization of Los Zetas were from Hidalgo, including the maternal and paternal family of the late Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, a humble and respected family throughout the state.
'El Lazca', the former leader of Los Zetas cartel, built a luxurious mausoleum in Pachuca, Hidalgo. His death occurred on the second Sunday in October, according to the Mexican government, in a clash with the military. The photos of his body were the only evidence, because his body was stolen from a funeral home in Coahuila, a state in northern of Mexico. The mausoleum is not documented, but the type of construction is very similar to that of the church he built and until a year ago had a plaque thanking Heriberto Lazcano for the donation for the structure. Both buildings have a huge chrome cross adorning the front façade of wood and cut glass. The church is located a mere three blocks from the Military Camp 18-A. The area is secluded and tucked away in the state capital of Pachuca. About 200 meters away is the Ministry of Labour, local government, the airport and a shopping plaza. In fact, the avenue is nearest one leading to the highway to Mexico City.
