3 found executed as southern Chihuahua suffers the 'cockroach effect'

By Chris Covert

A total of three men were found executed in a southern Chihuahua municipality Monday, according to Mexican news accounts.

A report which appeared in the online edition of El Diario de Juarez, said that the three victims were found on a road between Creel and Guachochi in Guachochi municipality.

They victims were identified as Marco Antonio Bustillos Grijalva, 33, Saul Aldo Garcia Villalobos, 31, and his brother Victor Paul 25, all of Guachochi.  They were shot multiple times in the head and chest.  The grim find was phoned in anonymously to Chihuahua state police, which located the murder scene Monday.

The rise in violent crime in southern Chihuahua is what is termed the 'cockroach effect', according to José Antonio Enriquez, president of the Observatorio Ciudadano de Prevención, Seguridad y Justicia de Chihuahua.

According to a  news account which appeared on the website of El Siglo de Durango news daily, improvement in security in the larger cities of central and northern Chihuahua state have forced criminal gangs into the more vulnerable mountainous regions of southern and western Chihuahua.

According to an unnamed source with the Chihuahua state Fiscalia General del Estado (FGE) or attorney general, the warring parties include the Juarez and Sinaloa cartels, which are squaring off in the region for territory and trade routes.

According to Señor Antonio Enriquez, murder rates have increased dramatically in the La Tarahuara region, which includes Guadalupe y Calvo and Guachochi municipalities.

Murder rates in Chihuahua city and Ciudad Juarez are currently around 30 per 100,000, while rates in Guadalupe y Calvo is 118 per 100,000 and Guachochi, 122 per 100,000.

By comparison at the peak of drug war violence in 2010 in Ciudad Juarez, murder rates were 229 per 100,000 and in Chihuahua city, 118 per 100,000.

Señor Antonio Enriquez also said that the mountainous communities in southern Chihuahua are remote, a problem also cited in an earlier statement made last week by Chihuahua CGE Carlos Manuel Salas.  Those municipalities are traditionally areas which have been in the past neglected due to the extreme remoteness of some areas.

According to Señor Antonio Enriquez, poverty also plays a roles in criminal activity in the region.  Ten of the 23 municipalities have very high levels of poverty with 25 percent of the population in extreme poverty.  The population is composed of mainly peasant and indigenous peoples.

In a related story, two men were sent to prison Saturday for their alleged role in the shooting at Reforma de Mesa in Guadalupe y Calvo July 21st.

According to a news report in El Norte Digital, Silverio Esmin Chaparro Olivas and Uriel Gutierrez Martinez were sent to the Centro de Readaptacion Social (CERESO) in Parral after the southern delegate of the FGE discovered the two had been admitted to a hospital for gunshot wounds.

The shootout at Reforma de Mesa took the lives of six individuals, two of whom were decapitated.  There shooting was so intense at least 389 rounds of AK-47 ammunition had been  expended.

  4. I have spoken to several family members in Chihuahua and they say Jaurez is calm and peaceful, that there are still certain areas of the city you shouldn't be in but for the most part killings and shootings are on the decrease. These are people that lived in southern Chihuas and took some teaching positions in Jaurez. I was surprised to hear how they said it was going well and they had no fear of living there. I also have family in Guachochi and that area has always been notorios for being in the cross fire of different narco families.

  8. The cockroach effect is when you turn on the light all the cockroach's scatter to hide in dark places or out of site.

    This is the same action for Juarez.......the marines show up take control of city and bad guys need to run and hide to an area with less police/military presence.

    Or it means that Tony Montana stepped into Juarez with an AK and said "I kill you fucken cockroach's! !"
    And everyone runs for cover.

  17. Historically "cockroach" effect has been attributed to Zetas method of retreat when militars mobilized to an area. They leave until the military leaves. akin to the scattering of roaches when lights are turned on they get out of the lighted area.

    I have not seen the term used to describe increased violence, it really makes little sense.

    1. @Chivis. By what name do you call the "effect" when the other cartel/gang members scatter when the military arrives?

  18. Stop saying Mexicans are cowards for not fighting back at cartels. Dumb people like you are clueless as to what a civil societal breakdown imposes. Many have 'fought' back and paid with their homes, lives and their families' lives. Do the world a favour and educate yourself before you froth off at the mouth. I'm a female Canadian and have seen Mexicans up here work hard with pride and do what they can legally to help family and friends back in Mexico. You seem to think (you think=joke) that students, housewives, chefs etc just need to pick up weapons, regardless that they are normal, innocent and kind people, and automatically know how to enagage in warfare with cartels.

  20. The state department has just released it's list of Mexican states to stay away from and those with no problems.

    Their list is overkill and just because a city is on the list it does not mean that a city 50 miles away should be on the list. more often than not, that is not the case.

    If you have some places in mind that would be helpful. Cabo is a great place and its crime rate is better than most American destinations.

  23. La Linea might be hitting it hard but Chapo still has people there to support him. Local families in regions like Parral, Balleza, Guachochi, Guadalupe y Calvo and a few others. Those areas have always been influenced by people from Sinaloa. GN are not all Sinaloaenses, they are people from Chihuahua who have chosen to be involved with CDS and their people.

    1. Ur obviously not from chih,especially from the towns u mentioned.chihuahenses have their own style their own accent their own culture. In parral and the rest of those towns nobody says plebe.im from parral and have family in balleza so i know.i remember when chalino was hittin harder in so cal than in chih, nobody had really heard of him there.every state has its own style, now it makes sense tho dat cds took control of so chih becuz of it closeness to durango and sinaloa but the main capos in that area. Werent from sinaloa they were from chih, salguieros etc... in co hoots with cds

  26. Amado Carrilo, was also a back stabbing blood thirsty individual. He wasn't really any different, he wanted the whole drug trade for himself. I have not ever heard of anyone not wanting to be top dog and in Mexico the SCARFACE syndrome is in full effect. The times of people sharing the pie are far and few between because it has hit a entire new level down there. In Guachochi and Guadalupe y Calvo they fight for the weed plantations and the right to buy them from the local crime families. It's a never ending war there.

  27. chihuahua slowly returning to peace now that chapo is getting his ass kicked. la linea is tough and it will be very hard for chapo to control it if even if he brings military and federales again now that la linea fights and lays low like guerrilla fighting but withouth the military and federales its almost impossible to win against la linea, now that the people are tired of this war and the killings chapo started

  29. The sick truth is there might be a few places safer than others which perpetuates the problems and illusions of the situation mexico is safe.
    As long as Pepe is pouring the margaritas and people are sticking their finger up Pepe's butt. Things will remain the same in the cat and mouse game in Mexico. Look I don't hate mexico ... I hate the corruption , filth, abuse, and evil perpetuated against innocent people. And the fact it is not safe to drive a Ford F250 4x4 down RT2 in Tamps without disappearing without a trace. Mexico is as failed state with no hope. Goodnight Gente

  30. All this talk about la linea kicking chapo's ass... is there any evidence of this... EPIC (EL PASO INTELLIGENCE CENTER) constantly reports that the drug loads that are coming through Juarez (which in case you didn't know amount to 60% of all drugs that come into the united states) are mostly Chapo's... When news reports come out that 3 ppl or 5 or 6 are executed in Chihuas there is a dumb piece of shit on this blog that states "Oh it's La Linea kicking Chapo's ass", most likely it's La Linea robbing ppl out of their vehicles and personal belongings and then executing them like they did to those 5 women a few months back... I live in El Paso and from what I hear about ppl in Chihuahua, La linea are the lowest of the lows right down there with the zetas, what ppl fail to understand is that Sinaloa and Juarez worked together for a very long time prior to Vicente's drug addict ass taking control of the cartel, families working for Sinaloa have lived in Chihuahua for a very long time prior to this war... but hey to each his own, some ppl just love suckin off La Linea!!
