El Griego (Sinaloa) releases execution video
Victor Hugo Meza Lopez, aka El Griego has escalated his bloody conquest to push the Sanchez Tadoaba cell, formerly led by Arturo Herrera, (El Gross) now led by a subordinate El 50, out of their territory. Since last August bodies have turned up, stuffed in cars, thrown from bridges, dismembered in the streets, El Griego's calling card the of 'Fire Y Metal' appears on all the narco mantas and cartulines, lining the lifeless bodies of the victims, usually street level retailers or enforcers.
El Griego was responsible for the four disarticulated bodies that were thrown from the pedestrian bridge in early September, calling out El Gross, El Cayman, and El Flaco, Pablo Edwin Huerta, of La Cafatera. Since then bodies have continued to pile up, shot outside clubs, in public places, as the killings appear to surpass 2008 by the end of the year. There have been almost 900 killings in Tijuana this year, with 93 last month.
This is one of the only published executions videos in Tijuana, though some pictures surfaced on Blackberry devices being intercepted by United Sttes Homeland Security Investigation, in a operation targeting Juan Castro-Navarro, a crystal and heroin trafficker, who sent shipments from Los Aquiles. Those images showed a man tortured, beaten, and finally strangled to death.
Also, in August 2009, three kidnappers/sicarios/tweakers in the service of 'El Teo', were found with a video showing the torture and killing of a model, Adriana Ruiz Munoz who was allegedly girlfriend of one Teo's men, who was thought to be cooperating with the military. She was sexually assaulted and brutally tortured, and murdered. She was innocent of betraying any trusts, and images of her killing were found on a phone belonging to the suspects.

The video by the people of El Griego was sent to AFN. A body was found in Boulevard 2000 earlier, matching the body in the video. A man is seen, beaten, and pleading, he is then shot, and a banner placed in front of him.
I was killed for being a chapulin, pickpocket, pure people of 'A',
Fierro y Metal (Slang means 'go with everything))
As a 2016 awash in blood comes to a grim close, El Griego has upped his profile, in the wake of the death of El Gross, and may be next to be arrested or killed. Los Chapitos Uriartes, after the killing of Chapito Trejo in Sinaloa, were the target of a manta last week, from CTNG/CJNG warning all the Chapitos to stay in line.
