Yesterday morning, the body of Lazaro Martinez Rodriguez. Aka "El Escorpión", was discovered outside a Madero, Tamaulipas nightclub, “Viento Rodeo”.
With the body was found a narco cartulina with a message. Martinez-Rodriguez was once policía ministerial in Nuevo Laredo and later Tampico. After moving to Tampico, he worked alongside kidnapper, torturer enforcer, Francisco Javier Peña Ruiz "K21", allegedly using the police station for torturing kidnapping victims, subsequently becoming plaza chief of Madero.
The killing is the result of an internal CDG conflict according to the message, which identifies the deceased as plaza chief of Madero. Conflict has heightened in Tampico, Madero and Altamira, in an internal control struggle, after the fall of “EL Chive”.
Rumor has it that it was El Escorpión who betrayed Silvestre Haro Rodriguez, ( El Chive) which led to his arrest. El Chive, was chief of the Gulf Cartel plaza in metropolitan area of Tampico, Madero and Altamira.
The theory is that he gave state police information that led to Chive’s arrest at a Tampico hospital.
Supposedly, Escorpion gave up Chive so that he could take over Chive’s position, a fight he would have to win against “El R2” aka "El Toñin" brother of El Chive for the region
"The Gulf Cartel Tampico gives notice that in this plaza we respect the citizens and that kidnappers and extortionists are prohibited. Here is your kidnapping dog who acts against my orders, the famous “ESCORPION”, who is responsible for the kidnapping of the businessmen and the son of the PAN member CARMEN VOLADO, here kidnappings and extortions, are not allowed, this is proof that orders and rules are respected , no matter who you are. Here... whoever falls, falls, there is no room for kidnappers or extortionists.
