The day after his arrest, Coahuila authorities (PGJE) took the formal statement of Omar Trevino Morales, aka "Z-42", which could help clarify several murders, including that of Eduardo “Lalo” Moreira, son of former Governor Humberto Moreira.
The Secretary of the State Government of Coahuila, Victor Zamora, reported yesterday, that the day after the arrest in Nuevo León of Treviño, the alleged leader of the Zetas, last March 4, staff of the Attorney General of the State, was in the office of the Attorney General of the Republic to request authorization to take Treviño’s statement. Notably, the Coahuila government was seeking information from Treviño that may be helpful in several previous investigations in the state.
According to the official, the case will be strengthen with the information received from Treviño, “however the details are reserved as to not hamper the investigation”. Coahuila assures that data revealed by Treviño, who was arrested on 4 March by federal forces, will help to clarify not only the murder of Moreira, but also other crimes. Another of the topics touched on in the interrogation was the massacre of 300 in the Coahuila city of Allende in 2011, however, no comments or details about any statement by Treviño, was forthcoming about the Allende mass murder.
Treviño is suspected in 11 federal criminal cases for crimes of, kidnapping, robbery, oil theft, money laundering and organized crime. There is also a current warrant for extradition issued by US authorities.
"Z-42" assumed leadership of the cartel in 2013, after the capture of his brother, Miguel Angel Trevino, alias "Z-40", who was arrested in July 2013, nine months after the Marina killed previous leader Heriberto Lazcano, "The Lazca" in a Sabinas, Coahuila shootout.

Massacre in Cadereyta:
Federal authorities suspect the brothers Omar and Miguel Trevino Morales as the masterminds of the murder of 49 people in this municipality of Nuevo León.
Note that in these crimes, at least one or more “masterminds” have been arrested and charged with these crimes. Just this week another “mastermind” was charged with the San Fernando migrant murders. That is the fourth author of the same crime arrested.
Eduardo Moreira, nephew of Governor Ruben Moreira, was found dead in his truck on the evening of October 3, 2012 in Ciudad Acuña.
Reports indicated that the motive for the murder was revenge for the death of Alejandro Treviño Chavez, Miguel Angel Treviño nephew at the hands of Group Special Weapons and Tactics (GATE), the same morning.
In late October 2012, Humberto Moreira publicly stated that it was revenge murder. Humberto's family and Lalo's widow also placed blame on his brother, Ruben Moreira, the sitting governor of Coahuila. Ruben took away guards and Lalo’s amor truck a few weeks before his nephew Lalo was killed. He stated the municipal police could guard the former governor’s son.
And it was the Acuna police, including its chief, who were arrested for his murder having participated in isolating Lalo under pretense, so that Zeta sicarios could conduct the killing. Read Chivis' detailed account by using this link.
