Wanted since 2012, a suspect arrested in the Allende Massacre of hundreds

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat
One could see the smoke from afar, yet the news was void of reports, I along with everyone else in the area could see with our eyes, yet nothing was reported.  Residents were left to the word on the street--- in this narco news blackout state. ..Chivis



Many victims were taken to a ranch just outside Allende and owned by the Garza Gaytan Family which had storage sheds.  Zetas used the sheds as a incinerator to dispose of the bodies. Ashes, belt buckles and a rosary were all that was found.on the concrete floor.  300-500 persons were murdered, men, women, children. 
La Rancherita

Criminal Investigation Agents completed an arrest warrant against a person who is reported to have participated in the massacre that occurred in the municipality of Allende and other crimes in the region, in the years of 2010 to 2012.

The detainee was identified as Juan Manuel "N". He had an arrest warrant from the year 2012, accused of having participated in several kidnappings and homicides. In collaboration with other individuals, several people disappeared in the northern region of Coahuila.

The State Prosecutor's Office in coordination with Chiapas authorities, thanks to the coordination they have, managed to capture the person who was transferred to Piedras Negras to answer for the crimes in which he is involved.

Víctor Gerardo Rodríguez Lozano, delegate of the Prosecutor's Office in the North One area, announced that he had completed the arrest warrant and that in the next few hours he would be presented before a judge in charge of the accusatory criminal system to carry out the initial hearing of the process.

At the time the accused was mentioned for participating in kidnappings and murders under the command of the Zetas criminal group. Criminal Investigation Agents completed an arrest warrant against a person who is reported to have participated in the massacre that occurred in the municipality of Allende and other crimes in the region, in the years of 2010 to 2012.

Allende Massacre [Chivis]
The fires and violence continued for days.  300 to 500 people were abducted, killed and incinerated. It was on a Friday when hell came to Allende.  Witnesses reported seeing dozens upon dozens upon dozens of vehicles in the Zetas convoys.

One could see the smoke from afar, yet the news was void of reports, I along with everyone else in the area could see with our eyes, yet nothing reported.  Residents were left to word on the street in this narco news blackout state.

On March 18, 2011 we were driving from, Monterrey Nuevo Leon on Hwy 57, when we saw the smoke ahead.  We saw a narco convoy and first responders but as in many other incidents of violence, the fire department were warned not to intervene.[see what the fire chief had to say below]  Residents flooded the emergency center with pleas for help, but help never arrived.

We decided to turn around and go through Tamaulipas and up through Texas and across to Del Rio and into Mexico that way.

We began hearing word passed from person to person with respect to what was happening in Allende.  The never ending smoke was never addressed specifically, we heard Zetas were torching and destroying homes and killing people.  Later we learned the horrific truth.  The smoke was from the incineration of hundreds of people.  It is unknown to all but the executioners if they were burned alive.

I was scared far more than I ever had been while in Mexico, yet strangely residents didn’t share the same level of fear as I.  For example on the second day we had a function at a school in Piedras Negras, yet traveling there was dangerous.  I didn’t want us to go.  My staff said in the day time it would be ok.  They went--- I didn’t.  They teased me for my fear; I scolded them for their lack of fear.
La Nena was butchered for her blog reports-her head was posed atop her laptop. 5 narco bloggers were murdered.

Blackout Narco News State

Nena was a blogger and an
editor of a mainstream newspaper
In 2010 Tamaulipas became a black out narco news state.  Coahuila was a black out state even prior to 2010. In 2010 the SDR tuitero movement began with #ReynosaFollow leading the way. This movement filled the vacuum created by the conventional blackout media.  By using social media, these warriors were able to send out warnings and reports of situations at risk in Tamaulipas, and joining states such as Coahuila, of narco roadblocks, shoot-outs, and other dangerous situations.  This is a very perilous endeavor that cost the lives of Tamaulipas bloggers, some decapitated, hanged, and one, a doctor, abducted, made to “confess” on her twitter account and killed.

These brave citizen reporters have saved countless lives. One of our reporters at BB joined the group in Tamaulipas who created a manifesto that was published to the world. The word and warnings on the street became reports on social media.

And this was how we were able to receive any reports of what was happening in Allende.


The reason for the attack was a massive betrayal by Zeta members



Millions of dollars were stolen from the cartel by Mario Alfonso "Poncho" Cuéllar, Héctor Moreno Villanueva and José Luis Garza Gaytán, alleged members of the Zetas, who betrayed the Zetas and fled from Coahuila to the United States. In their hands between 5 and 10 million dollars of profits for the transfer of drugs and the ledger. They left Coahuila for good, but left many relatives behind---in Allende. 



Cuellar, Moreno and Garza fled to the United States where they began rethinking their actions.  Realizing they were between a rock and a hard spot, Cuellar and Moreno approached the DEA and offered their serves as cooperative witnesses in exchange for entry into  the protected witness program. 


Cuellar claims before he left Coahuila, Cuellar warned those who worked for him and relatives to escape.

Most of the family members lived in the region of [5]  Cinco Mamtiales [Five Springs] area near Piedras Negras and Allende had the most of the family as residents.  Allende straddles Federal Highway 57.

Some U.S. reports fixated on the cooperation with DEA as the reason for the revenge, but in reality, that was insult to injury and they were already tagged because of the money.

Family and whomever happened to be in the homes at the time, paid the price for the betrayal.

[read this BB article from the time of the massacre-much of the info was from resident witnesses sent to Borderland Beat, use this link]

Below are  personal accounts from a National Geographic report.

Guadalupe García, retired government worker: We were eating at Los Compadres, and two guys came in. We could tell they weren’t from here. They looked different. They were kids—18 to 20 years old. They ordered 50 hamburgers to go. That’s when we figured something was going on, and we decided we’d better get home.

Martín Márquez, hot dog vendor: Things began happening in the evening. Armed men began arriving. They were going house to house, looking for the people who had done them wrong. At 11 at night there was no traffic on the streets. There was no movement of any kind.

Etelvina Rodríguez, middle school teacher and wife of victim Everardo Elizondo: My husband, Everardo, usually came home between 7 and 7:30 at night. I was waiting for him. Time passed—7, 7:30, 8, 9. I began calling him. The phone was not in service. I thought maybe he was at his mother’s house and his battery had died. I called his mother. She told me that she hadn’t seen him and that maybe he was out with friends. But that didn’t make sense to me. He would have called. So I went out looking for him.

The atmosphere felt tense. It was nine at night, which was not very late, not on a Friday. The town was completely deserted.

A few miles outside of town, the gunmen descended on several neighboring ranches along a dimly lit two-lane highway. The properties belonged to one of Allende’s oldest clans, the Garzas. The family mostly raised livestock and did odd contracting jobs, including coal mining. But according to family members, some of them also worked for the cartel.;Now those connections were proving deadly. Among those the Zetas suspected of being a snitch—wrongly it turns out—was José Luis Garza, Jr., a relatively low-level cartel operative, whose father, Luis, owned one of the ranches. It was payday, and several workers had gone to the ranch to pick up their money. When the gunmen showed up, they rounded up everyone up they could find and took them hostage. After nightfall, flames began rising from one of the ranch’s large cinder-block storage sheds. The Zetas had begun burning the bodies of some of those they’d killed.

Sarah Angelita Lira,
pharmacist and wife of victim Rodolfo Garza, Jr.: My husband, Rodolfo, arrived. He told me, “My head is killing me. I’m going to take a shower.” He was completely covered in soot because he was opening a new coal mine. After a while his phone started ringing. I thought he had gone to lie down, but he came out of the bedroom, fully dressed, and he looked me in the eye in a way I had never seen before. “Don’t leave the house,” he told me. “There’s something going on. I don’t know what it is. But don’t leave the house. I’ll be back.”

After a while, Rodolfo called me. “Get out of the house,” he said. “And don’t go in our truck.” He told me to ask my cousin to take our daughter, Sofía, and me to my mother’s house.

His uncle Luis’s ranch was on fire. And there were a lot of armed men standing outside the gate. His sister wasn’t answering her phone. His father wasn’t answering either. He sent one of his workers, Pilo, to the gate to see what was going on. Pilo had been in the military. The gunmen opened the gate. Pilo went in. But he never came out.

Rodolfo was inconsolable. He couldn’t find his parents. He couldn’t find his sister. And now his best worker was gone. He told me he was going to try to sneak onto the ranch through the back.

A few minutes later, he called again. He was speaking so softly I could barely hear him. He told me to get out of Allende. “Tell your cousin to take you to Eagle Pass. Don’t pack. Just go.”

Evaristo Treviño (no relation to Zetas leaders), former fire chief: Officers under my command responded to reports of a fire at one of the Garza ranches. We’re talking about less than three kilometers away from Allende. It appeared that the Garza family was having some kind of gathering. Among the first responders was a group of firefighters with a backup engine. They noticed there were certain people connected to criminal organizations, who told them, in vulgar terms and at gunpoint, to withdraw. They said there were going to be numerous incidents. We were going to get numerous emergency calls about gunshots, fires, and things like that. They told us we were not authorized to respond.

In my capacity as fire chief, what I did was to advise my boss, who in this case was the mayor. I told him that we were facing an impossible situation and that the only thing we could do was to stand down, out of fear of the threats we faced. There were too many armed men. We were afraid for our lives. We couldn’t fight bullets with water.

Some of the money ended in EPN pockets.

How could you, when you know your greed caused that much loss of life, and then you don't even get the money. WITSEC isn't that luxurious. If I were an LE officer, I'd drop dime on these worthless pigs. Over 300 dead....for 5 or 6 million??? Split 3 ways?

Lately I have seen new videos where Mexicans and Argentinian and others root for the Chilean army "singing" Adios al 7o de Linea, like somebody is promoting the Nazi look of a "real army". With their little concentration camps, genocides, disappearances, mass graves, to be ready for the real thing ASAP.

  9. Now allende coahuila has an army base. Not just in that town but all over that state. Tamaulipas also constructed army and navy bases.

    1. They had them at the time. those in Acuna and PN were minutes away.

      the one in PN is a "mega military force" [105] which as all else in coahuila is corrupted.

      they have supposed to have a naval base in acuna built, which they have said for 5 years.

      other added security, the installation of one thousand surveillance cameras in the municipalities of Acuña, Monclova, Piedras Negras, Sabinas, Saltillo and Torreón.

    2. Very true, Chivis. The bases and checkpoints are useless, either the military is in bed with them or the guys use the backroads to go around the checkpoints. I can't count how many times we have driven thru checkpoints and they just wave us thru without a single question. We go to Allende and the 5 Manantiales often and i always think about the accounts you have written about....some of the places i have seen up close and personal and didnt realize h
      Where i was until after the fact. We had a few peaceful years but now its getting hot again. I have been gone for awhile, but am trying to read BB more often and hopefully can help you again soon.

    3. My girl and partner Lacey!
      Yes, sadly the military is the easiest to corrupt. IF and WHEN the navy base is up and running in acuna that is the best scenario. I think they should have made in in 5 springs, much more central in north coa. the navy is the most difficult to corrupt.

      BTW Nava in 5 springs in a certain coffee shop is where one could see the trevinos regularly. Back in Mar 2011 we were on our way to stop at my fave place to buy the best tortillas of anywhere, in Zaragoza, and then to Acuna, but we couldn't really get very close because of all the activity.

      Ironically, my assistant had just told me on the way how safe 5 springs was. Not the assistant you met, it was the "the embezzler"--jaja he is from Zaragoza.

      take care

    4. BB FOLLOWERS:
      Lacey was BB follower who became my friend. One of only two I allowed into my private life. She has lived in North Coahuila for as long as I have been working there.

      She and her husband helped me in numerous ways, even helped saving a teen that had been deported. With the foto I sent Lacey, and the info I was able to get from GEO, she waited on the Mex side of the bridge for the terrified teen. She found him and took him to the casa migrante where I had arranged his safety until his bus ride home could take him back to SLP safely. without zetas interference.

      BTW the family of the teen contacted me for help, saying the kid was lost after crossing and GEO nor BP would give them info. At first I thought he was dead as they found a kid dead in the rio grande near PN/eagle pass. I spoke to the EP police and sent a foto but it was not him.

      The kid's father lived in Oklahoma for many years. But the young teen said he "was ever going to try to cross again"

      Without the action of lacey and me [I am Cagney] the kid was prime meat for the Zetas recruiters who also wait at the bridge for new recruits. Deportees from all over Mexico and central america are dumped there with no resources and far from home. Like this kid, my foundation in conjunction with casa migrantes fund transportation back to their homes in mexico and central america.

      Thank you Lacey!

    5. The Marine Infantry of the Mexican army are a bunch of maricones, buy not exactly navy sailors, and they are also corrupt, proven inmant instances where they have been murdering innocent people and refusing to answer any questions later, the propaganda about any government forces right now is just propaganda, marinas replaced army around some bases and the areas became high crime areas, including corrupted minors and murders of women, which "proves they are more effective CRIMINALS who do not have to answer to anything or anybody. Like the gestapo and the KGB.
      AMLO has installed giniral Luis Crescencio Sandoval as his Secretary of Defense, a giniral that was military zone commander in charge of Piedras Negras prison when prisoners were cooking people in 55gal drums or just killing them in the prison, even planting some outside and inside as the Colombian army in La Macarena, right by the military base, Alvaro Uribe Velez still claims they are "all enemies fallen in combat"

  10. Horrible accounts to what transpired chivis. Simply appalling to see citizens butchered and set ablaze with no assistance from local authorities whatsoever. A harrowing tale of how these cartels dictate rules of justice wherever they reside. From municipal officials to politicians in every sector of government.

    Another fine example for those who believe that this war against such criminals was uncalled for. Judging from past & present evidence in Mexico. These atrocities imposing civil unrest would have continued if not for political powers (US, Mexico).
    Resulting with what's transpiring today because of government intervention to clean house. Rather, eradicating those tentacles of criminal organizations reach.

  11. And yet the cowardly Mexican government will and won’t charge anyone still in Mexico who protected the zetas from these atrocities. Yet they’ll extradite them or the USA capture them when they flee to other countries. People state that the USA has no business prosecuting for crimes outside of the USA but this is a perfect example of why they do. That’s also the reason I strongly believe our tax dollars should not be spent south of the border or any other country that won’t hold their citizens accountable!

    1. whereas the overall content was 'ok' it is written by someone who obviously is not up close and personal and relies on second and third hand inaccuracies. this information is thereby picked up by american media.

      examples is her claim it was DEA and the cooperation of cuellar that caused the rampage.

      think about how absurd that is. If a cartel thinks...not even reasonably sure there is a dea connection sure they are out for blood---OF THE INFORMANT---not the entire family. in fact take the Zetas trial where there were many cooperatives testifying and giving info....their families are live and well.

      It is all about the money and drugs. Cuellar took millions and he also abounded with drugs. Zetas went ballistic. when cuellar saw that zetas were going to pull out all stops, t was then he contacted DEA.

      another example is when Thompson says Lazca was a gentle leader and not bloodthirsty, but when he died the trevino narco machine became the killing machine.

      This is an example of not knowing history and fact.

      Zetas Inc was set up in a different manner than other cartels.

      They had a three tier organization. leaders, middle men [operators] and soldiers. IMO the gob was in error going for the catch the capo method of offense. it has never worked. and warring with the nini based soldiers is a bottomless pit.

      I think strongle going after the middle tier would have greatly crippled the zzetas.

      secondly---product was divided into two sections--fifty percent drugs and fifty percent diversification-knock offs, sex trade, kidnappings, extortion, oil theft etc etc

      thirdly duties were divided in two----Lazca would lead enforcement and warring. Trevino oversaw drugs and diversification.

      The squirel who was Laca's best friend even said in testimony it was lazca's call to kill Lalo Moreira the governor's nephew in a nephew for newphew scenario. think about that, Trevino did not ask for the retribution--it was Lazca.

      when Lazca was killed in the shootout with marina, trevinos put pressure on the cartel to reduce the killings. the mass showy killings, video executions etc---almost stopped. until kiko came into power after his uncles were arrested. They but the brakes on his madness, but once they were gone he up the violence.

      There were 5 key points i thought were flawed, although I am not saying it was purposeful.

    2. Lazca a gentle leader ? Lazca was the cold killer who ordered all the most brutal killings,it wasnt 40 it was lazcano

    3. Z40 was enough of a sanababich that he impressed Lazcano, plus he spoke Mexican landscaper English, a plus when it came to telling cbp "America Chile" to cross border.

  22. Another fine example that this cartel killed a lot of innocent people, the government let it happen and the Z cartel had continued to grow. Fast forward, now it's the baby killer cartel that has grown and killed countless Innocents and once again, the government is doing minimal work. Just last week BB reported, there was a caravan of 50 cars, in Michoacan yes from the baby killer cartel. That would have been, a perfect time to, fire at them from Blackhawks. But not a single military person was dispatched.

    1. All baby killers. The impact alone has affected communities and societies worldwide. If one looks close enough to see all the ramifications of such.
      Collaborators of these killings are what transformed Mexico to what it has become.

    2. Mexico is a failed country.

    3. 6:43 the lines of refugees on the border points of entry and the caravans from Central America are not full of "Failed Mexicans".
      I hope that proves your point WRONG.

  25. Chivis, would you be able to go back and post some stories about Allende when it occurred just to see for some of us. The comments would be interesting to see from people who were there.

    1. Maybe---it is difficult for me, one one hand I want everyone to know what was seen and other pieces to the story, for example there was a clash between military and zetas and 6 killed at the same time this went down, just a few miles away. there were pockets of violence that lasted for days. it was a terrible, terrible time.

      in acuna years before there was a week when CDS came to town to "cleanse" there were mantas and warnings to all residents, not to wear black, not to go out in the dark etc. there were businesses torched people kidnapped and gone forever, a regional police commander killed and dead body left in the parking lot of the candy warehouse where I bought candy for my parties. the owner always looked shady to me but he had a nice wife and kids. the daughter was taken...the fire dept was held at bay with threats. dozens of vehicles stolen, some right off the international bridge. it was a rough week but pales greatly in comparison to allende

      barely a blip on the new about acuna.
