Director of Investigations in the Oaxaca State Police Shot Dead

"MX" for Borderland Beat

San Antonio de la Cal is close to Oaxaca City and is part of the metropolitan area.
A director of the State Investigation Agency (AEI) in Oaxaca, Omar Sabino Chepetla Jiménez, was assassinated on Tuesday afternoon in San Antonio de la Cal Municipality.

The official was driving his Nissan NP300 truck, without license plates, when unknown assailants shot him from a moving vehicle. Chepetla Jiménez was pronounced dead at the scene.

Local media outlets say that the road where Chepetla Jimenez was killed is a popular location for criminals to carry out hits or leave bodies for public display. 

Elements of the Oaxaca State Police and National Guard arrived at the scene moments later to cordoned off the site, but they confirmed that no one was arrested.

Chepetla Jimenez had a degree in Business Administration and served as a member of the Federal Police for 29 years. In September 2019, he joined the Oaxaca State Police as Deputy Director and later as Director of Investigations, a position he held until his death.

According to Mexican federal authorities, there are at least six major criminal groups in Oaxaca: Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), Sinaloa Cartel, Guerreros Unidos, a faction of the Gulf Cartel, and remnants of the Beltran Leyva Organization and Independent Cartel of Acapulco.

  1. No safety for even police authorities. How will a common man will have ? We have something called people I'd, does Mexico have anything as such document as proof of Mexican citizen (not birth certificate) and has a unique number ?

    1. Unique Population Registry Code (CURP).

    2. By linking CURP with tax, bank and properties one can easily prosecute if a person is money launderer. Banks operating in my country will call up account holders whose transactions seems suspicious if it crosses a threshold limit of say $2000 at anytime. They will need to submit proofs for source of money. We will need to submit it even for getting a sim card. Same I'd should not be used for 2nd property until submitting source of income. This maybe useful but I understand govt won't do it there. I don't know if such law already exists in Mexico.

    3. Mexico's tax tribunal (SAT) is actually very strict and goes into a lot of detail with companies that are registered in the financial system. Laundering money in Mexico requires a good understanding of accounting, reporting, etc.

      I own a company in Mexico and need to hire SAT specialists to deal with our ERP/Accounting system to avoid having issues with the SAT. They are very strict. Things like digital receipts (Comprobante Fiscal Digital por Internet, CFDI), monthly transaction with vendors (Declaración Informativa de Operaciones con Terceros, DIOT), following official codes/catalogos, working with SAT-approved invoice providers (Proveedor Autorizado de Certificación, PAC), etc.

      Companies don't use CURP since that is a unique identifer for individuals. Businesses use Registro Federal de Contribuyentes (RFC). Since a lot of business (even in the formal sector) is paid in cash, cartels can easily launder money. But this amount is minimal compared to the "formal" way.

      Please read the article below (search the section "Mixing Extortion with Accounting"). Redlogarythm and I wrote this piece last year after interviewing several business owners in Mexico.

  3. Oaxaca an important plaza for what reasons? i assume just to extort businesses, laundering, and for being a transit corridor?

  4. @9:21 Not important that’s why it’s not a violent state compared to most but the bigger carteIs have used Oaxaca to land their planes coming from the south

  5. Does anyone know what the going rate for a contract killing in Mexico is? They say life is cheap- I'd like to know exactly how cheap it is there. Or, do they just have hitmen on salary killing like a 9-5 job?

    1. Do tell me your the 12 year old asking for a friend? It's $300 a hit, sometimes, when the lead man is not carrying money, you get rewarded with Crystal meth.

    2. It depends on how important person is and the amount of 'trailing and recon' needed to get to target as well.
      Lousy pay. One day your the hit man, next day your hit. I have heard you need to constantly be on the move as No matter what, you piss somebody off and people are looking for you/cartel and associates hit belonged to.

  6. Perfect. Now we can get a playstation and some games.
