Bloody Sinaloa: 7 die.

As many as 21 individuals have been killed in gunfights in a mountain municipality of Sinaloa state since April 8th, according to Mexican news reports.

Saturday a news account which appeared in the online edition of Milenio news daily said that four victims of a series of shootouts in Tamazula were found Saturday between the villages of Chacala and Las Coloradas.  Those men were identified as  Joel Barraza Chairez, 18, Aurelio Beltran Leon, 39, Nemias Fernandez Lopez, 24, and Jesus Alberto Guzman Garcia, 35. 

Last Wednesday news reports indicated that a total of 18 individuals were killed in a series of gunfights between local drug gangs in the municipality.  At the time confirmed reporst were that four were found dead, and three were wounded, even though other publications had said the bloodletting was much worse.

According to a separate news account in Milenio published last Wednesday, starting on April 8th, some of the gunfights in the area lasted about 15 hours and took place in the villages of Chacala, Las Coloradas  and Las Trancas. 

Those reports also said that three individuals were wounded in the gunfights.  They were identified in an April 9th La Jornada report as José Valdez Castañeda, Alejo Villanueva Zazueta and José Angel Arredondo Yáñez.  The Milenio report which was filed Saturday also mentioned three wounded although none of the previous online reports have said if the reported wounded were the same.

Mexico, specifically in Sinaloa are no strangers to large scale armed encounters between drug gangs.  Almost two years ago 57 individuals were killed on a month's time span beginning in May, 2012, after gangs aligned with the Sinaloa drug cartel fought against groups of fighters affiliated with the Juarez, Beltran Leyva and Los Zetas mostly in Choix municipality. 

Given the nature of the fighting, usually gangs retrieve their dead to prevent rival gangs and Mexican security forces from gaining intelligence.  Adding to that the government habit of failing to report everything about a confrontation, the death toll in Tamazula may be much worse than reported.

  1. Fighting was between Los Estrada de Chacala vs Los Tranqueños (el guero de las trancas and his people from las trancas). El gueros brother and his people killed some Estrada's a couple months back en la mesa del rodeo. Its believed that Gueros brother was among the dead
    Estrada's have been asking Guero to fight so they finally came looking for him in las trancas they used Bazookas and the ones that ran were ambushed in las coloradas.

    4. They waited to attack las trancas until el gobierno left (militares were everywhere during the Chapo persecution looking for him and Mayo) The Estradas work with Olegario Chaidez and El Guero de las trancas for Chapo. But this has nothing to do with Cartel business its all personal. Muy Buenos amigos los de CHACALA. Stop with all the CHAPO ISIDRO TAKING OVER BULL.

  5. All these pueblos are from Durango. Los M's are heavy and dug inn. They infiltrated. and corrupted all public offices. They are mercenaries and only have alligence to el Estado De Durango. The question is??? Who will they back now?
    I know this.. Chapo isidro is moving alot of people into Baja Cali.. instead of reinforcing his easter borders... maybe he had a sit down with los M's.. GN from Chihuahua are being call back to Durango.. something big is going down.

  8. 1st post seems insightful. My impression is that narco-gangs don't intentionally engage military forces in a protracted firefight without a good reason. If they do, they are probably defending a key leader from capture, a safe house, lab, field or some other asset. If the fighting is related to a feud, then it could be a coincidence that the military was in the middle of it. I think it is worth having a look around though. 8-)

    2. Sounds like you know first hand,give us some more info....somehow when its personal it makes things a little more interesting and kind of o"OK"for this to happen.These are the kind of events that the late chalino Sanchez wrote about(the real corridos writer),not like these retards Gerardo Ortiz and Commander,and these babosos from that film Narco Cultura.what a fucken disgrace for Sinaloa with these idiots

      Delete
    3. True Chalino si cantaba corridos reales primo de Los Torres de Los Llanos (JT & M1) Word is el Guero de Las Trancas is dead. Los de Chacala disarmed el Gueros brother but let him go. Guero and his brother disarmed those same guys but killed them in cold blood. Estradas from Chacala (maybe some Chaidez as well) went into las trancas and got payback.

  12. El Chapo is an old fool who should have listened to El Mayo and stepped aside to let the new up and comers control the Plaza... La vida de Narco Traficante no es una vida para Tontos, Pendejos y Viejos... ahora puede perder el control de la plaza por ser Tonto, Pendejo y Viejo.

  20. Fill the entire state of Sinaloa with body parts. I love it....... Its time for Chapo Isidro to shine. This man is filled with so much hatred for his enemies no one can stop him. The blood of his enemy will flow like a river until they are all gone. BLO with Los Zetas together is a truce from hell. I feel sorry for the Federation. Maybe Nieto will have pity on them and intervene.....not!!!!!
