Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Debate
The state's health contingency, as a consequence of the COVID-19 outbreak, could have been a factor in reducing the criminal acts. However, murders against women increased, since in March there were zero cases; but this time around , in April, they added four. 

There were just over half a dozen municipalities where intentional homicides left no victims, including Guasave, Sinaloa.

Another event that also caused a commotion was on April 4, also in the port, because at approximately 02:00 that day a group of people on board a truck threw the body of a man who was identified as Franco N ., 25, who was left dead on the side of the road, outside the entrance of a coffee distribution company.

The body was face up and with blood in the body. According to the report, he was beaten and shot to death.
In the middle of a corn plot that some peasant women were tracking, the body of an individual in a complete state of decomposition was found, which could not be identified because he did not carry an identification document that referred to his person. 

Shortly before 1:00 p.m. yesterday, people from the countryside were carrying out tracking work on the site, and when they reached their midpoint they were unpleasantly surprised to see what appeared to be a person's body.

By getting off the tractor and getting closer, they were able to confirm that they were indeed the decomposing remains of a man . The body lay facedown and naked.
Then they went to the town to notify the authorities, who minutes later arrived at the site to verify what was said. 

Police Preventives, who were the first respondents, notified the State Attorney General's Office to send their staff and take over the case.

The finding was recorded west of the vicinity of the town of El Limón de los Ramos, belonging to the Adolfo López Mateos syndicate, El Tamarindo.

More than 50 % of crimes month after month are committed in the state capital, being the municipality with the most population, according to what was mentioned by security sources. 

In the first fortnight, the violent day began with a murder for alleged quarrel in the Los Angeles sector , and continued with a double intentional homicide in the Costa Rican syndicate. 

On days 9 to 11, executions were recorded, despite being the Holy Week of Easter, although it should be noted that these dates were not like previous ones, where the agglomeration of people was seen in various recreational areas for the holidays.

One of these violent acts was in the Potrero de los Sánchez Zapotillo town , in the municipality of Mocorito. Hualterio, Jacobo and Ricardo died in the middle of Holy Saturday.

By 18, in Culiacán, a young employee of a seafood restaurant was shot to death when an individual reportedly arrived and began shooting at her. He died in a private hospital, and in this way added the first female person who died at the hands of criminals. 
Two days later, in an invaded area of ​​the Renato Vega Amador neighborhood, two men were killed inside a humble house.

On the night of April 1, in the municipality of Choix, several civilians were shot , and the result was two deaths.

Without results:
During the month of April, the State Attorney General's Office (FGE) did not announce any results of possible perpetrators of committing at least one of the crimes that were perpetrated in April.

The tally of criminal homicides in May is expected to exceed that of April.

Los Rastreadores Keep on Working, tirelessly:
The volunteer contingent of Searchers and Rakers from various groups keep on working despite Covid 19 restrictions and may actually have more time for the hideous task of searching, looking for the remains of loved ones or possible clues in their disappearances; ie closure for so many families, especially mothers; who make up most of the members of Community associations who dedicate themselves to the horrendous task.

Los Mochis, Sinaloa: Members of the Rastreadores de Fe y Esperanza  ( THE RAKERS) group located this Tuesday a human skeleton buried in a clandestine grave in the vicinity of La Robalera beach.

The discovery was made after an anonymous call received by the search collective led by Mario Higuera Cota. Due to the conditions in which the victim was located, it is assumed that he has been deceased for about 2 years.
Just yesterday, May 19:
Three bodies were found on dirt road in Tepuche, Culiacán.
The bodies were found on a dirt road in the Tepuche syndicate, it is presumed that they could be people taken / kidnapped during the past Sunday.

At the moment they are reporting the discovery of three bodies on a dirt road that leads from Tecolote to Caminaguato, in the Tepuche syndicate area.

It is presumed that the remains of these three people could be "Macario", and another subject nicknamed  "Doll'', as well as a third party whose identity is unknown.

They were allegedly deprived of their liberty on Sunday morning, when several uprisings of people were carried out in the Tepuche syndicate, including an active investigative police officer, his brother-in-law and one more, who were released hours later , one of them with a bullet injury.

Authorities are currently moving to the place where the finding is reported to investigate the scene of the findings.


  1. So much death and for what????

    1. For $$$$$$$ what else

      The guy who shot his wife with a 22, kills him self wounds daughter then flees wow amazing dodnt think that could be done ! lol
      "Peyote" hunters in 4th picture
      sure they come across DEAD BODYS all the time.

    2. You guys do know Culiacan is know for being the city of muertitos. Go around the city and you will be In shock of all the murals from all the murder victims . I thought they were celebrating day of dead . They were not .

  2. This are high level skill mercenarys doing all The killings cleary ex military police and other ex goverment guys You know putting a goverment on its kness like sinaloa did , are serious business

    1. The cubs, traitors, pirates, special ed forces, desertors?

  3. There are many more in mass graves in areas like Cosalá, San Ignacio, Concordia etc

  4. Speaking of violence there was a massacre yesterday in GTO that might was overlooked here at BB , 8 people dead at a gas station RIP



    1. 7:31 Why are so many people fighting for Guanajuato?? What makes it important??

    2. It’s just cjng and marro, it’s a good plaza to steal oil

  5. I never understood how CDS could be so insanely powerful, yet have only partial control of the state.

    Definitely a lot more than settling of scores, is it just groups of people who don’t want to fly the CDS flag?

    Can’t possibly be any remnants of AFO, CFO, or BLO causing this much mayhem?

    1. 7:54 cds has culiacan on lock,it's just cds cell vs cds other cartel operates in that city

    2. LOL @ AFO being in Sinaloa and CDS having just partial control of the state. If 95 % means partial, then you're right, you know what you're talking about. Beside Chapo Isidro's organization which btw has a pact with CDS and operates out of Guasave, no other cartel function in Sinaloa. And ya, these are settling of scores.

    3. There is NO MORE CDS. Sonaloa is not run by one crew anymore but different groups. And the proof is in the violence in sinaloa and sonora.

    4. As others have said It's CDS cell vs CDS cell. These are gangsters they fight over everything.. even if it is the same cartel, eventually they'll find a reason to kill each other they always do.

    5. Funny how when theres so many killings in sinaloa its scores been settle but when theres the same killings or less in other states the cartel in change has not control of the state, lets admit it cds is falling apart and loosing control of sinaloa and sonora, if thats not loosing control than i dont know what is

    6. Sinaloa ONLY controls the south part of Sonora, Los mazatlecoz/BELTRANES the north...
      CDS does NOT have CULIACAN on 🔐.. CAF, JUAREZ CARTEL and CJNG operate there.. Yes, just like CDS operates in GUADALAJARA CJNG operates and does their BUSINESS in CULIACAN TOO
      Too many corridos for THESE CDS GROUPIES 😆
      Don't they know it's only intertainment and NOT based on FACTS
      It's just singers writing lirics, exaggerating it and kissing A$$ to a CAPO so they can get more money for their 🎶 ayayai..

    7. @ 8:19 AM. Again this dude who writes with caps lock on and uses a ton of emoticons. Proven CJNG nuthugger. The same guy who said that CJNG went to Culiacan and killed a few high ranking CDS. Bro, no offense, but you're full of shit. You forgot to say that Zetas and Golfos also operate in Culiacan. And you probably know better than Buggs who said that the entire northern border of Sonora are Zambadas and Chapitos. Lmao @ CJNG and CAF in Culiacan. CAF is almost extinct from Tijuana, mate.

      @ 10:03 PM I don't know if you heard about the conflict between El Ruso (Zambadas faction) and El Nini (Chapitos faction).

    8. 10:44 and thats not loosing control from your own cells? The big bosses are suppost to be chapitos and mayo why not stop the killings cause innocents are also dying in the cross fire, how can nini and ruso do whatever they want? If mayo and chapitos really had cds under control they would have a mitting with them 2 and tell them stop all the nonesence and whoever starts again will get taken out like chino, easy as that but its ovbious they have no control over them, i thought cds didnt heat their own plazas cause thats bad for business

    9. 10:44 who ever said CDS controls ALL of SINALOA is CLUELESS.. The NORTH is BELTRANES/mazatlecoz..
      If not where are mazatlecoz and beltranes at?
      No offense but your an idiot 😆
      Your going to say cjng DIDN'T kill high ranking CDS in CULIACAN but there's an article here and it it? PENDEJO lol

    10. @ 12:54 PM. LOL. What a loser. I don't understand how Chivis keeps posting your BS comments. For real now, you're retarded mate. You behave just like a kid. You can read my comment from above. I said that Chapo Isidro controls Guasave and a few surrounding areas. You keep inventing things since you started to comment on this blog. BTW, aren't you that guy who said that Julian Grimaldi Paredes was assassinated in Culiacan by CJNG and someone contradicted you? Guess what, he's not dead. As I told you before, you're a pathological liar. It's pretty sad that in the world there are sick idiots like you. Keep it going if it really makes you feel better. I wait for the name of that high ranking CDS killed by CJNG in Culiacan.

      @10:44 From what I understand, they had a meeting. El Ruso did not want to reach an agreement and now Chapitos are going after him with the support of Mayos. Here's the link of the article posted on BB.

    11. 3:48 so your saying chapo isidro ONLY controls guasave he and a FEW sorounding areas? You know he's clicked up with mazatlecoz "people from mazatlan" hence the name..
      IT'S a fact that they control half of SINALOA..

      Now back to your
      I read the article months BACK and remembered tHE name and the STORY about both guys escaping PRISON. And remember the article ABOUT two cds guys getting KILLED by cjng in CULIACAN. Wasn't the guy who escaped but other 2 CDS guys close to julian grimaldi..
      WE already discussed THIS on onother article where you called me OUT 😆
      You trying to discredit the fact that CDS guys got KILLED in CULIACAN by CJNG SICARIOS? Ok...
      The article is here in BB
      I'm sure you KNOW about UK capos but PLEASE don't try to act like your an EXPERT on MEXICAN CARTELS MATE 😆

    12. 3:48 Google MEXICAN cartel MAP it will be a FEW of THEM..
      click on one that shows each state representing A DIFFERENT COLOR for each CARTEL.. It CLEARLY has MAZATLECOS/BELTRANES on NORTH of SINALOA
      Thank me LATER mate 😆
      CDS on south sinaloa with exemption of MAZATLAN where chapo got BUSTED..wonder why..

  6. Where is Chapo when you need a stick? Chapo would have crime rate at 0% in Culiacan if he was free.

  7. Only 60 CRIMINAL murders in Sinaloa for the month April. That seems pretty low to me tbh. Good job Sinaloa bros.

    1. Thats what they say but in reallity is about 5 times that, and im not kidding

  8. When you not only have the President release Chapito, but the you go take pictures at Chapo moms house, What message will that give to criminals?

    1. u r so Right, how much money did Amlo for that Pic. So funny, Cartel violence is bad, but u got to laugh 😆 at Amlo, he got the Mexican people fooled lol

  9. Will break 2019 record, but more hugs should stop it. Lol
