Members of the Archuleta family fled from the municipality due to the fear of suffering a new attack and the absence of security guarantees, as the authors of the forced disappearance and later assassination of three young men remain free and remain in the town, they denounced.
"We can no longer be here", one of the members of this family told El Diario that he had to decline participating in the funeral service of his loved ones, but he refused to identify the site in which he was refuging.
In this town one can not bury their dead, lamented the bereaved.
"We are afraid to remain longer in the town", said the person interviewed upon making what would be his last communication.
The fear, he affirmed, is because they are poor people, laborers, and without any relation with organized crime, despite the fact that they kidnapped his three relatives, tortured them, and killed them.
The bodies of the victims were recovered by the relatives indirectly, those who still have not decided what to do, before the fear of possible attacks if they conduct a wake for the bodies in their houses, as it is accustomed to do in this rural community.
Guadalupe is found 31 miles away and to the southeast of Ciudad Juárez; towards the border of the counties of El Paso and Hudspeth, Texas.
The territory, according to the versions of the neighbors, is controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel, but following the death of Gabino Salas Valenciano, who died in an alleged shootout between members of the Mexican military led by the then sectretary of Public Security of Ciudad Juárez, Julián Leyzaola Pérez, fragmented in cells and fights have erupted among themselves.
In that community the neighbors speak in hushed voices of the supposed head of one of these cells identified as "El Negro" and his lieutenants, the brothers "El Meño" and "El Toga". They mention others like "El Profe", "Los Papachos" and "El Sinaloa".
"They were born in Guadalupe, in the town of Caseta (Doctor Porfirio Parra ejido) but they are in Juárez, they only come once in a while. They are even good people if you don't mess with them they won't with you and they even are good about greeting people", said a neighbor of the town.
Before abandoning their place of origin, the members of the Archuleta family informed that through the Facebook account of Elmer García Archuleta they would be sharing information about Edgar Iván, the older brother of Elmer and his cousin Gabriel Archuleta. They left children behind.
The Fiscalía General of the state conducted a handwriting analysis and forensic fingerprinting of the card that they left on one of the bodies (Itzli: according to El Diario de Chihuahua, this message threatened the Sinaloa Cartel and was signed by La Línea), the prosecutor in the northern area, Enrique Villarreal Macías, made known.
He added that the bodies would be handed over after they had the results of the genetic forensic testing that would allow them to establish the identity of the victims with a 100 percent certainty.
The forces disappearance and later killing of the three members of the Archuleta family still impacts the communities of the municipalities of Guadalupe and Juárez.
Elmer and Gabriel were "lifted" from their houses by six members of an armed group in front of their families; Edgar was removed at pistol point from a bus in which he was traveling as he was an operator at a factory in Juárez, informed the prosecutor Enrique Villarreal Macías.
Despite the fact that Guadaluple has a permanent presence of the Mexican army which is responsible for security in the rural area, the armed gang acted with absolute impunity.
Prosecutor Villarreal Macías said that the acts happened on December 6 and that the family did not report it until the 8th, which affected the investigation.
Now, more than 50 agents search in the Valley of Juárez for the alleged people responsible, he assured.
At the moment there have been no results.
