Last Saturday I wrote a post regarding the rumor of soldiers taking the body of a Templarios financial officer, just an hour before the cremation of the deceased man, Samer Joseph Servin Juarez aka “El Rigoberto" .
"The story being reported is a group of Mexican army soldiers, burst into a Morelia Michoacán funeral home and took the body. In the presence of family and friends, the body was placed on a stretcher by soldiers, placed in a van, and driven away.
He was to be cremated on Wednesday at 6PM, and as the story goes, the body was taken an hour prior to the cremation. The body was taken to Michoacán state PGJE facilities, where a premier diagnostic laboratory resides, among other diagnostic tests conducted there is DNA testing.
The DNA testing of Nazario Moreno, El Chayo, and Francisco Galeana, El Pantera, among others was conducted at this facility.
In speculation, it is possible that upon learning of the pending cremation of the deceased, authorities wanted to extract DNA. There is such a deep mistrust by the people of Michoacán, pertaining to information issued from the government, by both states and federal governments."
As it turns out the rumor was true:
Federal officials confirmed that the death of Servin Juarez, Caballeros Templarios financial officer working for Kike Plancarte in Morelia. the death was due to a cardiac arrest due to complications of diabetes mellitus.
Last Wednesday autodefensa groups reported his death when he was in a hospital in Morelia, Michoacán.
That 23 members of the Army stormed the funeral home and took the body of Servin Jurez.
State authorities claim the family was trying to conceal the death before cremation, the body was taken just one hour before scheduled cremation.
To the surprise of those attending the wake, the military took the body on a stretcher and it was taken to facilities justifies the Attorney General of the State (PGJE).
