Around 700 families fled Milpillas and Las Chinacas communities in Chinipas, after attacks by a new criminal group. On Sunday the 20th, armed men arrived at these villages, killed two men, burned three houses and strafed one more with gunfire, that was found to be empty. After the events, the villagers fled their houses terrified.

In the crossfire, a child of nine years old was shot, and there are other injured children. There are two dead men and others disappeared, the only families that stayed are those that are burying their dead, and the families of the two young men that were kidnapped, said a farm worker.

The villagers of Chinipas have been accustomed to the fear and uncertainty because of the actions of this regions resident criminal group, but on Thursday the 3rd the fear started to grow when three leaders of the group that dominate the zone "Los Salazar" were executed outside of Milpillas.



They were Jesus Guellermo Vega, 50 years of age, Abel Olivas Ramos, 49 years of age and Edgar Munoz Rodriguez, 38 years of age, two of them were burnt.

This event complicated things more. first the two families of the dead men fled, and a few days later they said that another 15 families had left, and the number had been increasing. The criminals started to pressure the communities and there has been several confrontations. The fear increased for the villagers, and they abandoned their villages, and so started the exodus.

Some authorities recommended to the villagers to leave, because they were waiting for a major confrontation between "Los Salazar" and the new criminal group, within three hours.

The resulting stampede was very difficult, very painful, because they were leaving their homes, their land, it was a drama. The road between Alamo and Navojoa (of Sonora), was a file of cars, it was very sad. But that way they managed to save lives of dozens of entire families.

Since then all the schools are closed. Days after the shop that served the village was ransacked and already there is no food, the criminals emptied the village.

According to the villagers, the criminals attacked people that were not part of criminal gangs, but also attacked others that were "in the business". These subjects, they said, were not part of the "Los Salazar" group, they were another that had arrived from Sinaloa to fight for the plaza after the escape of El Chapo Guzman. Others assure that they newcomers are people of Rafael Caro Quintero, who left prison on the 9th of August 2013 after spending 28 years in prison.

On this occasion, its not people from Milpillas that are angry towards us, its the new people from Sinaloa, said another farm worker.

According to the people living in the village, the majority of the inhabitants are seeded in this community. They are naturalized and legitimate, but with the passing of time the criminal groups took over from the citizens.

The leader of "Los Salazar" has for many years operated in the areas of Urique, Guazapares and Chinipas, Alfredo Salazar, currently imprisoned at "Altiplano" Cefereso no.1, Almoloya de Juarez. The group is currently operated by an uncle of his, who must now confront the criminals from the Sinaloa Cartel that arrived to take the plaza.

In Milpillas there were about 400 families of about 1500 people, and 300 families in Las Chinacas, all have fled.

In a communication given yesterday, the State Attorney General (FGE) said that in the Milpillas community the inhabitants had informed the investigating authorities that armed people sacked three houses, and victimized a 73 year old man, Rodolfo Burgos Hermosillo, who used to be the Municipal policeman in this locality.

In regards the three houses raided, they all had impact marks on the doors, forcing the locks to gain access to the interiors. Inside the houses the police recovered seven spent AK47 cartridge cases and three from a twelve bore shotgun.

In the exterior of one of the properties a white Chevrolet pickup was discovered without circulation plates, burnt out with a dead animal inside.

Later, and after carrying out some patrols, elements of the Army and Municipal Police of Chinipas went to Tecorahui, where the presence of armed subjects had been reported.

According to the FGE, when State Agents arrived they passed through the community of San Antonio, located close to the entrance, about four hours from Tecorahui, they received gun fire from armed men located in a house. The Agents returned fire and killed two criminals.

One of the dead men was, Arabel Vega Lagarda, 42 years of age, with a home in Milpillas, who was in possession of rifle made by Norinco. The other man, armed with an AR15, has not been identified.

Ten days after, the villagers of the community of Tecorahui, of the same Municipality of Chinipas, were not heard from, because the criminals had taken the village and were not allowing people to enter or leave.

One man managed to leave, and he could relate what had happened, but up to now, he has heard nothing from anyone who lives there. No cell phone calls, and they have no means to communicate, said one person who wished to remain anonymous.

  2. The problem for Chihuahua is that unless a family has literally had one of their children killed, they all think narcos are great guys and give them support and protection. Then when their child does get killed, it's "why do these bad men control my community?"

  4. Según los habitantes del lugar, la mayoría de la gente siembra enervantes en esa comunidad. Se naturalizó y legitimó con el paso del tiempo, pero de un tiempo acá, los grupos delictivos se volcaron contra los ciudadanos.

    According to the local people, the majority of the community is involved in planting and harvesting drugs. It became a natural and legitimate thing over time, but recently, criminal groups began turning on the locals.

  5. Pues no que el Chapo y Caro Quintero se Ivan a juntar Para dominar todo el pais? Esto demuestra que eso era puro rollo! Y no que el Chapo muy chingon que hoy hasta Quintero le esta tumbando Chihuahua?SI el Chapo esta con Quintero esto quiere decir que el traiciono a estos "Salazar"!. Este es el desmadre que causan los de Sinaloa en Chihuahua. Y desafortunadamente todavia hay gente en el sur de el estado que le lame los huevos a estos y quieren ser como ellos. Les sugiero mejor que se cambien a La Linea los de el sur de Chihuahua si quieren sobrevivir los narcos de aya. Para que tanto pedo, si estos ultimos desde que calleron el Viceroy y otros pesados ya no extorcionan y se meten tanto con la gente inocente. Nomas vean a cd Juarez de ejemplo, donde ya no hay tanta matanza y controlan estos junto con los Aztecas!

    2. I would much rather that is, in both countries, Mexico and Syria...that both of those useless Presidents, and their government, leave! I'm all for helping ANYONE, who really needs it, and right now, they both do. A safe refuge, is only a temporary solution, not a permanent fix. They both deserve to be able to live a life in peace and safety, whatever country they are from. I am sure, most of these people, would like to return, to their country one day, not the country that they left, but, one they can feel safe in.Their government right now, cannot provide that for them, and ours can. God Bless America!

  13. Not only Mexico, the whole world is a joke, funny how a very small percentage of the population is the one causing all of humanity's misery and decay. Real Mexicans do not support this shit, supporters are the poor, the ignorant, the uneducated and the "mountain people" from northern states, sadly, the majority of Mexicans living in the US and who entered the country illegally come from this background, there are a lot of decent and hard working ones but as always, people just take into consideration the fuck ups.

  15. Chapo must not be all that strong anymore if Quintero is making a play for his territory in Chihuahua now. Also if Chapo let him enter Chihuahua then this must have been a betrayal on Chapo towards his Salazar group. Either way if these guys want to survive their best bet is to join La Linea in Juarez. Ever since Viceroy and El Diego among others where captured looks like La Linea has stopped extorting and killing innocent people anyway.

    3. From 6:15, I live in E.P.T across the border from cd Juarez and I happen to see the Mexican news everyday. La Linea has stopped extorting money. And just like @8:06 had said, alot of the extortion (not all) was being commited by bands claiming to be La Linea. Aside from the fact that during the drug war the federales and police under Chapos payroll would would blame La Linea for more shit than they actually did!

    4. That's b.s you know dam well they extort just like cds does

      Delete
    5. @ 10:47 La Linea and Azteca's have since before the cartel wars extorted people involved in drugs! Regardless of what the U.S. Media likes to write about the "bad" cartels, killing and extorting innocents is bad for business and both of these gangs learned this the hard way when hundreds if not thousands of their members were killed by police under the pretence of the cartel war just for extorting during that war! Get a clue man, cd Juarez is a now calm thriving city of 1.7 million people. If someone is being extorted they are most likely in the game.

    6. Well, muchas gracias barrios, artists, aztecaCaz y otros mascachicles, dice el puto gobierno que ya no necesita to blame your arses, since leyzaola got shot peace seems to have returned, toCd Juareeez! what were the odds?

    7. It's still extorting either way doesn't matter what you have to say extortion is extortion I'm sure they do it to people who aren't just in the game quit being a cartel cheerleader

      Delete
    8. From @ 9:40 if the cartels extort people that are not in the game it is to the most minimal scale now. Like I had said I live across the border from Juarez and I know lots of people and businesses and for the most part extortion is no longer heard of. And it could very well be cuz of a great effort by the authorities as well, I'm not cheerleading on any cartel just pointing facts.

  16. My question is where are they fleeing to? That crap is going on all over Mexico. Just do like everyone else and head for the border.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Why would they terrorize innocent people ? I know these are criminals but whats the up side for them . Most of the criminal are in it for the money right ? What their motive ? Are these people really innocent ? Not saying theyre not . But there has to be a lot of cooperation along the border from a lot of people on the south side . I'm sure there was a lot of innocents , but how many involved ?
    Or maybe their boss gave them weapons money and transportation and said just go wild someplace . It don't matter . Just fuck up some people .
    Maybe there was a goal though .

  18. They can control an entire town?!

    It looks like the countryside is being vacated. Looks like everyone is heading either to US or to big cities. That is what happened in Colombia, they ran everyone off their land and they fled to the cites where there was a semblance of law and order.

    If the Mexican authorities did not want this happening they could stop it.

    This is happening everywhere in LatAm: El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Colombia etc...

    As those in the computer world say: TIMTOWTDI

    This could not happen without the permission of the authorities. That means these criminal groups are proxies to the state in that the state does not intervene when the groups actions are inline with theirs and passively watch. Only intervening when they want to. Why does the government of Mexico want these people off their land?
