Piedras Negras, Coahuila: 37 Assasinated Victims Remains of Los Zetas Identified

Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from El Debate

The Coahuila Prosecutor's Office identified 37 victims who were assasinated and incinerated by Los Zetas between 2009 - 2012 in the CERESO state prison of Coahuila. Piedras Negras, Coahuila is on the US border of Texas.

Sept 29, 2017: Saltillo, Coahuila.- The Coahuila Prosecutor's Office of the Disappeared have identified 37 victims who were murdered and burned by Los Zetas DTO inside the Piedras Negras penitentiary center, but have yet to identify at least 113 people, as reported yesterday Sept. 28 as reported by  the head of the investigative unit; José Ángel Herrera.

"As a result of two stages of investigation, it has been possible to confirm the identity of thirty-seven people who were victims of the crime of disappearance of persons," Herrera said in a press conference.



He also assigned the responsibility of 17 persons involved in these crimes, and about  21 arrest warrants were issued, of which only 17 have been complied with, while four are  pending.
Information from Proceso:

The head of the unit stressed that among the results of the investigation that took place on Monday, September 4, 2017: 13 people were arrested, of which only eight were imprisoned and  five of them confirmed members of the group "Los Zetas".


Herrera also mentioned that the purpose of bringing criminal proceedings against those responsible, it is necessary to obtain 16 additional arrest warrants for the crime of the disappearance of persons.


"Among the 37 victims identified is a family of seven members, including a woman and a minor," Herrera said.

From late 2009 to September 2012, the Los Zetas criminal group has murdered and incinerated at least 150 people in the workshops of the Social Readaptation Center (Cereso) in Piedras Negras.



The remains of the victims were put in bags and thrown in the channel of the river San Rodrigo. The authorities diverted the river bed to locate the remains in the bags that were thrown.


However, "due to the floods caused by Hurricane Alex, the bags with human remains were washed away by the current and ended up in the Rio Bravo," said José Ángel Herrera.

  1. Still in shock and in disbelief that such atrocities occurred in a penitentiary. Definitely an elaborate setup. All under the watchful eyes and protection of correctional officials.
    Got to hand it to these individuals. Despite the horrors committed,it was an elaborate one.
    This display of power and influence of the Zetas
    cartel members is surprisingly well noted.
    Getting a bit frustrated with repeating the same words over and over again " Hopefully justice prevails ". A phrase that bears any if none of value in a country where impunity reigns.

    Guess prayers will have to suffice!

  2. Prison officials and law enforcement personnel colluded with the kidnapping, murder and incineration of these victims. Previous articles have described how the government officials allowed the narcos the use of official vehicles, weapons and uniforms to carry out the kidnappings. Once the victims were delivered, the "inmates" went back to their cells to rest from their labors.

    As the posted article indicates, only 21 arrest warrants were issued even though is it highly likely that many more prison officials and personnel were involved in an operation of this magnitude. Remember, they have identified only 37 victims. Who knows how many other victims' remains the investigators have in their possession. Finally, it is clear they have only managed to recover a fraction of the remains that were disposed in the river (assuming that all or most of the remains were disposed of in this manner, which is unlikely).

    So, it is fair to say that only a small fraction of the victims have been identified and that most of the actual victims will never be found or identified. In typical Mexican government investigatory practice, investigators have been slow in issuing arrest warrants against high level government officials who were involved, and probably the most highly placed will never be named. This is because in Mexico, these jobs are awarded through political connections, not merit. Even if these officials are identified and their collusion is proven, they will be allowed to resign or will be appointed to other government jobs. Remember Alfredo Castillo, Tomas Zeron, Jesus Murillo Karam, on and on and on. The Peter Principle is totally inapplicable in Mexican government organizations.

  6. The thing is a percentage of this is propaganda against the Z to bring in the new guys. I'm sure half the bodies found are Zetas them selves. But cjng is replacing Z. By killing them off or the scared and smart ones switch sides.

    1. 6:07 demonizing los zetas is nothing compared with their dirty deeds, after all they trained with the School of the Americas Kaibiles, the Moreiros only feel safe because they brought in their FUERZA DELICTIVA COAHUILA to pass for a polesia estatal and have them watch their moreiro asses, they are still well connected, to epn, MAO OSORIO chón, el PRI, and hidalgo state, because Rubén el pelon moreiro got married to some legislator beech from the state when he was a federal congressman,

  9. As we all know in this blog, gun control does not work.Just take Mexico as an example, most guns above a small caliber are deemed for use exclisively for the military. Law abiding citizens do follow the law, but criminals can and do get their hands on ALL kinds of weapons. The only gun control is the one placed on law abiding citizens leaving them at the mercy of criminals who obtain their weapons in the black market.
