Michoacán Mayoral Candidate's SUV Shot in Assassination Attempt; He Now Plans to Stop Campaigning

"HEARST" and "MX" for Borderland Beat

Over the weekend, gunmen attacked an SUV belonging to Morelia, Michoacan, mayoral candidate Guillermo "Memo" Valencia Reyes after a campaign rally in San Juanito Itzicuaro.

Three people were inside the vehicle when it was attacked: Memo's brother Rene and two of his campaign managers. Memo had just gotten off the vehicle minutes prior.

He said the vehicle shot “[was] the van in which [he] always traveled in,” but that he had changed vehicles so he could go home and rest after the rally.

The attack occurred outside the home of a campaign staffer on Constelaciones Street in the Cosmos subdivision. He said that the staffer was regularly dropped off at that location after campaign events.

Two of the three were injured and are said to be in serious condition. They were both transported to a nearby hospital. Elements of the Attorney General's Office (FGE) and the Secretary of Public Safety (SSP) were sent to guard the hospital while they received medical care.

After the attack, Memo reported that he will cancel his political activities until further notice to "rethink his campaign". Elections will take place on June 6, 2021.

"My concern now is that my colleagues recover. They are fortunately out of danger. I will await the results of the investigations and will no make speculations on the case", Memo said on social media.


In the video above, one can see how two subjects surround Memo's campaign SUV and start shooting. Investigators believe that the gunmen thought Memo was in the vehicle.

Background

Memo is running for mayor of Morelia, the capital of Michoacan, as a member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). He served as mayor of Tepalcatepec Municipality until 2014, following accusations that linked him to La Familia Michoacana, a drug cartel based in Michoacan.

In July 2011, Mexico's former Attorney General's Office (FGR) opened investigation based on protect witness testimonies that claimed that that Memo had met with drug kingpins Servando Gomez Martinez ("La Tuta") and Nazario Moreno Gonzalez ("El Chayo") to work with them.

However, Memo said that these accusations were made by his political rivals to stain his reputation, including the Farias brothers (Juan José Farías Alvarez, alias "El Abuelo", being one of them). In an interview with Univision, he explained that the cartel members summoned mayors in Michoacan to meet with them and that they had no other option but to agree to their concessions.

"It was silver or lead (plata o plomo)", he said.

Morelia, Michoacan mayoral candidate Guillermo Valencia Reyes (pictured). He announced he was running for mayor on 8 April 2021.

On April 18, 2013, when Memo was mayor of Tepalcatepec, a group of armed men allegedly linked to the self-defense (autodefensa) groups arrived at the mayor's office to reportedly kidnap him. They accused him of following orders from the Knights Templar, an offshoot of La Familia Michoacana. Days later, Memo fled from Tepalcatepec to Morelia, and eventually to the US.

According to a 2014 investigation by Mexican media outlet SinEmbargo, which analyzed financial and public work documents from Tepalcaepec's Municipal Office, Memo used his position as mayor to pay construction projects to shell companies owned family members of the Knights Templar Cartel.

Many of these constructions were either poorly executed or never carried out, the report said. However, federal authorities later determined that the criminal accusations against him were insufficient and the investigation was dropped.

    1. 12:13 yeeep, mexicans with mexican faces should stop trying to run for political office...
      What we need is to find some blue eyed blond european prince to do us the favor of running México for US and mainly for México's enemies that would love nothing more than obtaining the colony back to exploit and rob and steal for a few more centuries, but uropian princes may be scared after what happened to "Maxi-Sex", Maximiliano de Habsburgo and his wife Carlota.

    2. You mean Mexicans with more native meso-american faces right? "Mexican faces" are the result of the heavy blood mixing and could be considered to belong to anyone born in the country, Mexican is not a race, people in 2021 should know this already.

    2. CJNG ain’t shit in Michoacan except in the fantasies of CJNG social media influencers, like lying ass Sargy. All CJNG does in Michoacan is heat up the state by sending Guadalajara drug addicts to their deaths.

    3. If they were not shit why is it that every time CJNG runs up into a Pueblo CU calling guardia sedena and marina for help and very time there’s a Gym battle it’s always a shit load of CU getting there heads chopped up and the only reason CU is only keeping Pueblos is because they get government help plus CJNG ain’t trying to fight government so I guess they not shut they just drop a shit load of CU and chop off a lot heads. All CJNG is asking is government don’t get involved let us figure out our problems on our own if Abuelo wasn’t such an idiot there wouldn’t be no war going on Abuelo was banished from teplatepec Mencho was the one who helped him out he was the one who got him out of jail the last time he got locked up when the marinas shot up his truck facts are facts and there ain’t no social media influencer cause yes they are looking for uploads and likes your suck an idiot for even throwing up that line social media influencers 😂

    4. when menchita ran the Mata Zetas he had no problems with the government helping him take out the zetas. Now that menchita used up all the cuini money to dress up drug addicts in grupo elite dresses and all the drug traffickers that used work with the cuinis dropped menchita jalisca fans cry no fair because menchita is too broke to payoff the gov. menchita was never good at making, thars why he always ended up running gunmen for the cuinis.

    5. @9:50 Because C.U. is a smaller group and the government won't favor El Menso as he isn't liked by this president, simple as that.

      Mencho grew around thanks to the PRI and Peña Nieto.

      When Marro was captured was because the current president doesn't like the oil thieves that don't play ball with him, but it wasn't CJNG who got him.

  6. This guys a true Hollywood act. Memontajes has a long cartel subordinate history.
    Tepalcatepec kicked him out for his ties with caballeros templariòs when the autodefensas were cleaning Michoacan. Anyone who believes this cheap stunt doesn't know his past.

  7. All the allegations against him are real and true. Kike Plancarte was godfather to Memo Valencia's daughter. Memo Valencia worked for Kike Plancartes branch of the Templarios who worked under Nazario Moreno. The videos of the people of Tepaltepec kicking him out of the town are out there. He stole millions of pesos from Tepaltepec before he fled.

    Memo Valencia and El Policia Bigoton talking about Memo Valencias and Kike Plancarte. The People of Teplatepec telling him what he is. Note when Memo Valencia said the CJNG was backing the autodefensas that was true. Everything else the people are saying is also true.

    Same police officer that appears in the first video at the beginning. Go to 8:50 that is El Policia Bigoton if you know Spanish you will understand.

    The person who is giving him protection in Morelia is kike Plancartes widow who married Alberto Espinoza Barron boss of Morelia currently at war with Nazario Moreno Gonzalez for killing, burning, stealing his representatives and businesses.

    The lady name Nereida Bustos Valencia on the right is Kike Plancartes widow now married to La Fresa de Morelia real name Alberto Espinoza Barrón.

    More on Nereida Bustos Valencia pictures of his children what was said by an autodefensa that was there when they raided Enrique Plancartes Jrs house is they found monsters the size of a horse in his drawers. Their is a picture of him in this video below he has a big pooper the people in Teplatepec allege that Guillermo Valencia would be on a horse behind kikes son grabbing his waist I imagine Memo has seen that pooper from what El Policia Bigot says.

  12. Memo Valencia is in Morelia capital because Alberto Espinoza Barron aka La Fresa needed him and financed his assault & takeover on the Capital by targeting drug users who steal to get high, Revolución Social is his groups name.

  13. i heard he wasn't even in the truck when it was shot up. people saying it was staged just like last time when he went around making videos with his brother talking about how people were after him. he already made arrangements with FM, makes no sense that they would try to take him out

    1. no but it makes sense CJNG would try to take him out

      also they did this before with the car that had Marro's mum in it .. she wasn't in it but they still killed the people in it.

    2. 5:24 AM CJNG won't touch Memo Valencia because he is related to El 85 and the Valencia's de Aguillila. El Abuelo Farias wife is also related to the Valencias that is why when Mencho wanted Poncho La Quiringa and Wicho El De Los Reyes they told Abuelo the problem wasn't with him Mencho gave him an opportunity.

  14. This guy (Memo Valencia) was a knights Templar and now a Cartel Unidos
