Los Reyes Michoacán : 4 Decapitated Heads Found near Clandestine Grave Site with 20 bodies

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat


Zacán, Michoacán
The routine life in the village of Zacán was disrupted early today when people, returning from a wake, discovered a black plastic bag containing four human heads.  The victims are from  the indigenous community of La Palma and the municipal of Los Reyes.
The macabre discovery took place around four in the morning, but it wasn’t until over four hours later, at 8:30 AM, when the agent of the public prosecutor arrived; his dilatory arrival was much to the dismay of residents.
On a small terrace, next to the Church of San Pedro, was the location of the plastic bag. One of the heads was identified as belonging to Bulmaro Herrera Rincón, 55 years of age, native  and resident  of La Palma.
The other decapitated heads belong to brothers Alejandro and Noe Alvarez Gonzalez, 22 and 24 years of age, respectively, as well as Juan "N" of 22 years of age, all are residents of Los Reyes.
 
A son of señor Bulmaro, told authorities, the four victims had left La Palma early Tuesday morning, aboard a blue Chevrolet pickup destined for the community of Cocucho, in the municipality of Charapan.  The men were going to  purchase  a  calf , to be used for  food  at the “Feast of the Virgin of the Nativity”.  
Since then, there had not been any communication to family or friends by the men.  This resulted in the family, together with other residents, initiating  a search for the men.  The search continued until this morning when the residents of  Zacán reported finding the four heads.
A message was found with the victims, but its contents were not disclosed, but authorities attributed it to organized crime..
Residents of La Palma report that this type of crime has never occurred in their community, and that the community does not have the problems found in other communities.
20 bodies discovered so far at Tingüindín fosa
However, it is not far from  Tingüindín, where yesterday security forces discovered a mass graves containing at least 20 bodies.
Autodefensas leader Estanislao Beltran, warned that they will continue to find more graves.
"This will be happening as we move forward. Criminals are murderers who kidnapped our colleagues," he said in a radio interview with Ciro Gomez Leyva.
"We have lost hundreds or thousands of people that have not yet been found. 
The community is not self-governed or self-policed.

I am sorry but this level of violence is disgusting. To murder innocent peasant farmers in such a way for no reason is revolting. Unfortunately, the cowards who did this will not be subjected to similar torture when they are brought to justice. Terrible really. Nice job Chivis.

The men were residents of Los Reyes.... it was one of five town around Apatzingan that were taken by the auto-defensas last week.

I'm sure this is the CTs sick way of terrorizing the people.

Remember in Dr. Mireles' latest video, he said the rage at such acts is what eventually caused the ADs to form? He said the heads of two boys he had seen born were delivered to the family that lived across the street from him.

Such evil... hopefully this will only cause the ADs and the people to become stronger.

as the article states there are no autodefensas in this town..

This level off brutality is unhuman. Its insane in so many ways. How can this be a good strategy from the cartel? How fucking coked up must someone be for doing this? Im speechless cant find more words for this evil shit.

@chivis there are no ADs in Zacan where the heads were *found*, but there are in Los Reyes, WHERE THE MEN WERE FROM.

Someone posted an interview WITH THE ADs IN LOS REYES the day the town was taken over last week. It was one of 5 towns around Apatzingan that were taken last week with government help (helicopters clearing the towns before the ADs went in).

I assume no word on whether the victims were connected with organized crime? Sorry to hear it. It must be a shock for people from a small community that has heard about this kind of thing but never had it happen in their town. Their lives won't be the same.

The contents of the message were not disclosed. We can fill in the blanks on the message. Same 'ol diatribe by the cartels. "This will happen to you if you don't kiss our feet". Well, soon enough, the cartels will be on the run. It is amazing to see what someone will do for a few bucks. Their mothers must be proud!

"Some neighbors help the self-defense group fill sandbags and set up the barricade in the middle of the intersection of two roads. Drivers are interrogated and, with rapid exchanges of glances, the locals say whether or not they know them.

Loma de Hoyos is one of five settlements five or ten minutes outside the municipal seat of Apatzingán taken by the self-defense groups between Sunday and Monday (the others are called Cagüinas, Presa el Rosario, San Fernando and Puerta de Alambre).

About thirty men with rifles mount the barricade and meet with residents to explain their motivations and ask that they join the cause of "a free Michoacán."

With different men, the scene is repeated in the municipalities of Peribán and

Los Reyes,

by which the self-defense groups are closing not only the ring around Apatzingán, but moving toward Zamora."

http://mexicovoices.blogspot.mx/2014/01/mexico-drug-war-some-self-defense.html?q=Los+Reyes

My point is that the men were from Los Reyes, and is possible (probable?) that they were targeted by CTs as a message... and their heads were meant to warn Zacan....

I hope the autodefense groups get rid of all these useless cartel scum.

This is outrageous. Stop killing innocent people. Shame on Mexico s government for being so corrupt or such pussies that they let this shit happened.

@8:05 is "clearly" stating that the victim were found in a place that had been taken by AD with the help of helicopters and "cleared",(of ct i guess) which leaves only the AD as suspects.
the attempt to smear the AD is very clear, and nobody would benefit from that but the criminals that are known to carry on attacks like this on the people, the CT, who get arrested and protected by the authorities.
there is a need for death penalty and a hunting of CTs is in order,and expropriation of everything suspected of being property or under control of these criminals and their associates, there is no need for continued supervision of the"authorities" over the crimes carried against the people, and we need to leave no doubt that the insidious statements of some posters are not more than a shitbag full of holes trying to sow disinformation and dissent among the AD and their supporters.

11:34 I can think of no other reason, there is no known cartel connection of the men ..probably used as props to send message

All the information is in the article , firstly the men were not abducted in Los Reyes , there were abducted from the road whilst travelling to buy a calf. So regardless of whether there are AD or CP in Los Reyes , they would not have been able to help, unless there were on that stretch of road at that very time.

Secondly , the article says the village is not self policed , you could assume there are neither AD nor CP here , the village may have been cleared of CT by the AD but if there is no CP to defend access to the village the CT can return anytime the AD is not present. This is an important difference as stated quite a few times on BB by Chivis. CP defend the villages with static defences , the AD roam in vehicles to " hot spots".

Read the small print people!

The ct have a diverse chain of command, and as soldiers they follow orders to a T.... that being said there is still a lot of armed groups aligned to their cause.. groups not in tierra caliente.. throughout guerrero, guanajuato, colima, federal district, even morelos... shoot, those boys got people in TJ, CA, even coordinating shipments with other mafias.. lets face it.. these guys are in it for the money.. and would rather much leave the state for a season or two than mess their money up, some armed groups wont leave like tutas men.. they fought hard for their state,, against the zetas (in neighbouring states also), also against el chapo Guzman when he tried to keep apatzingan for himself.. earned respect from the Colombians and the triads... respect is given when it's due, and everyone engaged in this battle for control are true warriors...saludos raza michoacana... todos en 1

Such cowards, the war on drugs will never end. Unfortunately Mexico (traffic) is between south America (producers) and the US (buyers) but to f**k with the people, poor people already and constantly f**k'd by the government? C'mon if the CT's have enough cash doing what they do why do they f**k with the people, charging quotas, kidnapping and using them as examples. Hermanos de las Auto Defensas sigan partiendole su madre a estas mierdas. Ya llegara el dia en que las 7 cabezas esten o muertas o encerrados solo haci termina los narcos, tarde o temprano.

@11:22 YOU are missing the point. The ADs took over Los Reyes last week as one of a few new towns around Apatzingan (see forum post). This just happened.

All four of the beheaded men were from Los Reyes.
They were traveling to Cocucho, in the municipality of Charapan.
Somewhere along the way, they were captured and beheaded.
Their heads were left in Zacan, a town without Auto-defensas, as a warning to Zacan from CT to not join with ADs.

No one in the comment thread said anything at all about ADs in Los Reyes coming to their defense!!! The point is Los Reyes was recently reclaimed by the ADs and the CTs are pissed.

Secondly, No one in the comment thread said anything about ADs in Zacan coming to their defense!!

It is clear from Chivis' post that there were no ADs in Zacan, so that is a moot point.

It is also clear that these poor men were beheaded to scare the people of Zacan from joining with the ADs.

YOU read the small print!! haha ;)
