Nidia Tamez Lopez was found dead inside the Reynosa prison where she was incarcerated. She was arrested for her alleged involvement in the violence that claimed over 25 lives, in the conflict for control of the Camargo Tamaulipas plaza. She was accused of working in collusion with Comandante Beto.
Tamez Lopez is the mother of Juan Francisco Saenz Tamez, alias Panochitas, and she is the niece of the mayor of Camargo.
Her death was reported on April 12 on Tamps blogs, as transpiring on the 11th but not confirmed for almost a week. There was no cause given for her death.
No one claimed her body, she was buried in a mass grave.
Panochitas, now in a Texas prison, pleaded guilty in January of this year in a Beaumont federal court to three counts of drug and money laundering. He could be sentenced from 10 years to life.
Juan Francisco Saenz-Tamez told U.S. District Judge Marcia Crone he smuggled 90,000 kilograms of marijuana and 450 kilograms of cocaine at times and generated about $100 million, which was taken back to Mexico and reinvested into the business to buy drugs and "other things."
In October 2014, Saenz Tamez known as “Panochitas” or Metro 103 was captured in the US border of Texas, by the border patrol. Panochitas was the leader of Los Metros (jefe de sicarios).
Panochitas is responsible for the murders of various soldiers during shootouts in Camargo, Tamaulipas.
The arrest was in the border town of Edinburg Texas.
Saenz-Tamez was wanted by federal authorities in Beaumont Texas. A grand jury indicted him on drug trafficking and money laundering charges in 2013.
