Community Police Remains Found In Tixtla; Armed Group Kidnapped Him the Day Before

Translated by Valor for Borderland Beat

Celso Nava, a member of the Regional Coordinator of Community Authorities (CRAC) in Tixtla, Guerrero, was found dead a few hours after having been kidnapped.  Police reports indicate that on Saturday, an armed group took him.

The body was found on the bypass that connects Tixtla with the state capital, Chilpancingo; however, some members of CRAC “Mi Patria es Primero” (My Fatherland Comes First), which is one of three divisions of the Community Police, that is based in the neighborhood of El Fortín, denied that Nava was part of that organization.

This isn’t the first fall suffered by CRAC, as it is worth noting that last November 27, a few days before the extraordinary elections that would dictate who was mayor of Tixtla, Los Ardillos, a criminal group that operates in the area, assassinated four community police members.

The attack occurred a few blocks from the headquarters of the organization.


  1. Fatherland, Motherland and Homeland are all correct translations. Colloquial differences apart it doesn't matter which one is used.

    1. Patrio=Fatherland
      Thank you borderland beat for all your hard work!

    2. You're right, they are all correct, and really doesn't matter. But Patria is Fatherland (in Latin) Never heard anyone use Patrio. And Madre Patria is (Motherland) Mexico is the Fatherland

  2. Crack got my friend too, he even stopped working and robbed to get more crack😕

  3. CRAC? Wow that name needs to change. The name makes it look like they are community authorities of slanging crack.

  4. Would the other members denounce him for their own safety or could it be he 'recently had a change of heart' but didn't mention to the last cartel he worked for?

  5. They know where the headquarters is at? Ummm. Is there a bounty or what? I'm hungry.

  6. La patria from latin "pater" is the paternal heritage,
    --The motherland is the country that supports and sustains us, no need to get picky

  7. what about the two catholic priest murdered in veracruz mexico

  8. I thought CAF and CTNG were two different groups.
