Images, multiple messages, and videos, depicting a man being interrogated in video footage in addition to a death photo was posted and distributed yesterday on social media.
The dead man is José Wenceslao Gasnares González, who was a high ranking official in the Tamaulipas State police in 2005, later a ministerial police commander in Nuevo Laredo, and several other cities of Tamaulipas. At the time of his murder, he was a high ranking member of Cartel del Noreste (CDN), a Zetas splinter group at war with Old School Zetas.
Gasnares closely worked with premier Zeta leaders, Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano aka El Lazca or Z3, and Miguel Trevino aka Z40.
In July 2012, multiple narco message banners (mantas) were hung in Tamaulipas, some of the mantas featured images of the three men with a message from “citizens of Nuevo Laredo”. In the message they condemned the terror implemented by the three men upon citizens/innocents.
They also denounced people in government positions who helped the criminals, “such as the mayor of Nuevo Laredo, Benjamin Galvan, rumored to be in collusion with Los Zetas, left office in 2013.
But not before the decapitated bodies of 14 people, were left in a van in front of City Hall. Accompanying the bodies was a manta message signed by El Chapo Guzman. In another event, a car bomb was detonated in Galvan's parking spot.
The 14 bodies were a part of “Black Friday” an intense clash between Los Zetas, and El Chapo. On that day, 23 were killed in two events. Zetas hanged 9 and Chapo the 14.

In 2014, after he left office, Galvan and a business partner of Galvan, were kidnapped and missing for weeks. The government would not even confirm the kidnapping, until a month later when the bodies were found in car trunk abandoned in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon.
Of the men named in the manta from the citizens; Galvan, Lazca, and now Gasnares González were killed, and Miguel Trevino is incarcerated in Mexico.
The images and videos of the Gasnares González kidnapping and killing, were released by social media through a new account.
