CJNG members hanged from bridge
For months bodies and narco mantas have littered colonia Sanchez Tadoaba, as the cell of Arturo Herrera, aka El Gross, and his lieutenants claimed the area for themselves, after switching sides, jumping from Los Aquiles, to CJNG.
Last night, unofficial reports are stating Herrera and his right hand man, 'El Piolin' were found in the area of La Mesa, Tijuana, after a body crashed into a woman's car windshield, from an overhead bridge. Authorities found a dismembered corpse in the street, with cuts to his ears, throats, a skull fracture, and other signs of torture, 35-40 years old male.
A few meters up the street, were three more plastic bags, with the corpses of two other men, bags containing the severed, bloody, limbs including arms, legs, torsos, heads. Socks were still on some of the corpses legs. A narco manta found tied to the bridge, glistening in the glare of the lights, was signed 'Fierro Y Metal', the calling card of a Sinaloa cell leader, 'El Greek', who for over a year has left narco mantas back and forth, in a brutal struggle for retail drug territory.
The signature has been left at the scene of multiple murders and body drops, urging Los Grosseros to 'Take it to the streets'. Also mentioned in the banner, are El Cayman, and El Flaco, other members of the Sanchez Tadoaba based cell, headed by El Gross. To be accurate, Los Grosseros are alleged proxies of CJNG, all the members are from Tijuana, and worked their way up in the Los Teos crew, before siding with Aquiles. They are also linked with CTNG, and appear to work in coordination with some members of CAF, according to recent reports, though it's said CAF is in name only, and no Arellano Felix members are left.
The last week in Tijuana has seen several high profile killings and shootings, including the death of Beto Cervantes in Rosarito, the alleged retaliatory killing of 'El Mike', of a Eminemcia Tijuana, a severed head left in Zona Norte, and several murders over the span of a few days. It's difficult to say whether it is really Arturo Herrera, as the bodies were severely dismembered, and the men would have had to be kidnapped from somewhere, and then dropped, which is less likely then catching them in the street.
El Gross employed dozens of young killers to coordinate his Teo like rise in Tijuana, one report from Zeta stated he would often be drunk and high, ordering killings for personal slights, or petty disputes, and paranoia. He has made half a dozen corridos in the last year, singing the praises of him and his cell, including El JP. Their reign may have ended, blood smeared on plastic bags, tissue, muscle and fat exposed by severed limps with a dull knife....
