Zacatecas Doctor Shot Dead For Failing to Stop at a Cartel Checkpoint

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Maria Esther Talamantes Banuelos
María Esther Talamantes Bañuelos, a medical radiologist from Zacatecas, was killed by unknown assailants after she refused to stop at cartel checkpoint on the Jerez - Valparaiso highway.

It was first suspected that Maria Esther had lost control of her vehicle during an engine malfunction because her car was found upside down across from the highway.

However, eyewitnesses confirmed to the police that Maria Esther had tried to escape a cartel checkpoint. Moreover, she traveling with someone who survived the attack and confirmed this version to the police. This person's identity was concealed for security reasons. 

News of Maria Esther's death began to circulate on social media over the weekend. Her companion said that they saw armed civilians at a fake checkpoint. Due to the drug-related violence that plagues the Zacatecas, Maria Esther decided it was better to ignore the cartel members and chose to accelerate through the checkpoint. She was then shot and lost control of her vehicle.

Her body was transferred to the forensic medical service. The autopsy results confirmed that the cause of death were gunshot wounds to her legs. Specialists say that she bled to death at the scene.

This murder occurred just nine days after intern doctor Luis Fernando Montes de Oca Armas and ambulance driver Octavio Romero were killed by suspected cartel members while transporting a pregnant women from Jalisco to Fresnillo, Zacatecas.

    5. "bRuUh" Valparaiso has over 50 colonies-districts-neighborhoods, you think CJNG has all of them controlled? Use your judgment, instead of emotions. Plus the truck was coming back from fresnillo a CDS "stronghold", but hey your logic of "paranoid" may be right.

    3. There's a rule you have to follow diligently:

      1. Don't go to Mexico

      That is the only guarantee you have if you don't want to be in a cartel checkpoint.

      Delete
    4. And dead if you stop by police.

    5. I just came back from Mexico. All was good. Those that suggest you not travel don't do much traveling themselves. They live sheltered fearful lives and only experience what they read about in their distorted imaginations. @4:54 when was the last time you went to Mexico? When was the last time you traveled?

    6. People who are fortunate to be able to travel to Mexico should but please don't say how safe it is. Please Understand, I'm not saying this To disrespect you in anyway but To repeat my story I was held at gunpoint in Sinaloa by 2 cops, and they were in the process of handing me over to some nefarious group. I'm pretty good looking but had a good bit of money for bribery, a few connections to mention and a US passport. Essentially I was about 30 min from a gangbanged femicide victim, found dead in a shed somewhere.
      I joke about it but I know how lucky I was, just fortunate to have been able to walk away with both legs and vagina intact. Good times...
      People should travel to Mexico and I know my situation is a rarity but you have to be realistic.
      I lived in some very gnarly areas in the states but a Mexican assault is def in the upper echelons of hell.
      Sadly for the average Mexican they have has to use a semblance of denial to continue with their lives. For the poor family in the hood with a pretty teenage daughter and a couple able bodied 14-20 sons...well, depending on the town or city, this is sadly a different situation.

And Hipólito Mira is hiding tha El Kiro guy in La Ruana - so it’s fake news about “auto defensa” founder being snatched off the street with his entire family.

They're not leaving maybe the G.N will, but not C.U and maguey is heavily outnumbered his group is only about 25 strong vs 100 c.u trucks.

    1. 1. Run through the checkpoint and run over them if you can. Good luck after that.

      2. Stay focused and you'll be able to spot the checkpoint long before you are even close. Then you stop, reverse, and head back to the nearest safe point.

      3. Stop and reverse with your emergency lights. Then take off in a different direction.

      4. Get to the checkpoint, comply, don't look at them in the eyes or try to negotiate or argue with them. Maybe you'll live.

However, if they were to ask me to get off the car, I wouldn’t get out. I’d rather die right there. Having said that, they have everything so controlled that they already know who you are.

    Why in the hell is anyone doing anything about the cartel blockades? What will it take for the government of Obrador to take action, with the military they have?? But when it comes to farmers with guns defending themselves o yes let's have the ministry of security director of Michoacan call Obrador to send the Army to disarm them. That director only opens his mouth in favor of the cartels, which more likely is in cullusion with them.
