Gildardo López Astudillo aka El Gil presumed dead among the massacred

Video translation is as follows:

Ciro Gómez Leyva:...where the events of the Ayotzinapa Normalistas occurred 5 years ago. This afternoon there was a confrontation between military and armed civilians in the community of Tepochica, a step away from Iguala, Guerrero. 14 civilians were killed, alleged criminals. And a military man also died. There is also a wounded soldier.

There are versions between journalists and local authorities. There are versions that one of the alleged criminals killed is Gildardo López Astudillo aka El Gil [“lieutenant” of Guerreros Unidos Cartel an off shoot of BLO]. One of the bosses of hitmen who killed Los Normalistas of Ayotzinapa. And that a few days ago he was released from prison for alleged deficiencies in the legal process.

The version seems solid until this moment and maybe we can shape it in a brief time period. According to Guerrero authorities they received a call to 911 to alert the claim of armed men. The support of the army was requested but when the soldiers arrived they came across the alleged criminals who began shooting at them. The confrontation occurred. The alleged criminals moved in 3 vehicles with a report of theft and in 3 compact cars. Some of them managed to escape towards the hills. Trucks and high caliber weapons were secured.

This so far the report of what happened in the area of ​​Iguala. It is the first time amid the government that a confrontation has resulted in a death toll. A soldier and 14 alleged criminals. At one point there were many times many times the balances in the fights of the feds against the criminal groups in other times. The government of President López Obrador would not want an episode of that to occur but the criminal whirlwind in which Mexico drowns reached the armed forces today. It would be unfair to call this a massacre in Guerrero today as perhaps it has been unfair to call similar massacres that occurred between 2006 and 2018.

  1. Holy smokes that only took a minute. When he was on the run after the Iguala massacre he posted mantas declaring the charges were false and named perps. One being Joan Sebastian’s bro who he says is the GU leader
    Gil said he moved from house to house because he had a target on his back, and he was dead man walking.
