Ministerial Police found the bodies of 11 youths on a dirt road that connects the county seat of Chilapa with the population of Ayahualulco, very close to a security guardhouse belonging to the preventive police.
The discovery was reported this morning (November 27), even though there were reports of at least two different confrontations in the neighborhood of La Villa, near the preparatory school #26. The criminal groups reported to be involved in the clashes are “Los Rojos” and “Los Ardillos”. “Los Ardillos” are reported to be directing the brothers of the president of the local Congress, and the local PRD congressman Bernardo Ortega Jiménez.
The bodies belonged to men between the ages of 20 and 25, all of them receiving R-15 and AK-47 shots. According to official reports, the victims were lying on the shoulder of the road, decapitated, dismembered, and burned. Other reports say that some were doused in fuel but were unsuccessfully incinerated.
Even though the clashes were reported to be on the evening of the 26th, the bodies didn’t appear until dawn and had a message from one of the organized crime groups operating in the area.
The message read: “There goes your trash ha ha ha…Fucking Ardillos shitty turncoats. Atte. The big shot.”
Heading towards Santa Catarina, a military patrol arrested a civilian who was carrying firearms and grenades.
