Gómez Palacio, Durango: Jesús Rafael Torres Bautista “El Colitas” Commits Suicide

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

Last night they found an inmate hanged, with wounds on his arms, who unfortunately lost his life.

It was at the Federal Center for Social Reintegration (Cefereso) number 14 where the inmate was found hanged. 

Located in Gómez Palacio, Durango, surveillance personnel were mobilized in the federal prison, as a result of the alert they received.

This was after Jesús Rafael Torres Bautista, 29 years old, originally from Monterrey, Nuevo León, was found hanging in his cell with blood on his arms.

Although fellow inmates and guards tried to revive him, they were unsuccessful. The medical area personnel intervened.

Upon verifying that he was dead, they notified the Deputy Prosecutor's Office of La Laguna, he arrived right away.

The public ministry agent inspected the area and found the lenses of his glasses full of blood, it is believed that he used them to cut his wrists.

It is suspected that after failing to take his own life, he took a piece of the sheet from his bed and hung himself, and later died. 

However, this is what is believed, the body will be autopsied by law to find out the cause of death.

Torres Bautista was nicknamed "El Colitas", and he was arrested in 2011 for the attack on the Casino Royale, where 52 people died.

If the suicide is confirmed, he would be victim number five so far in July and casualty 100 for 2022.

  1. His soul said he could stand living after killing many innocent's.

  2. It was way more than 52 people losing their lives that day. Btw people seem to think the casino and San Fernando massacres were planned by Las Trevis. That's not true. It was Wero 74 or Patas de Queso and Lazca's people NB.

    1. Is Pata de queso the same dude that died a year or two ago? He had been in the game since the 90s.

    2. Yes. Supposedly Jorge Lopez Pérez aka El Chuta was his alterego but I'm not 100% sure.

    3. Jorge Lopez Perez was an alias of Proceso Arturo “Chuta” Muro González. One of the last original GAFES-trained Zetas still free. He apparently left the drug trade a while ago. Was last reported to be running martial arts centers in Tamaulipas.
      Unknown is right that the infamous Zetas massacres from 2008 through 2012 were mostly Lazca’s doing. Pata de Queso also played a part in the San Fernando massacres as he was plaza boss there from the mid 2000s until his arrest in 2017 (when he was plaza boss for ZVE).

    4. 8:40 lol I think he used to run a Tae Kwan do center in MTY back in the late 90s (Vonacher family) I was one of his students lol.

  3. Based on expert opinion, suicide by wrist-slitting is somewhat difficult. Something about the veins or arteries at the wrists being too narrow. You need a geyser of blood. I'm told the forearms are better. And dig deep.
    Bautista's wrist wounds are commonly called "hesitation cuts" whereby he started the job, thought "this shit is hard and painful" then took up hanging.
    You take a big risk by hanging. If someone cuts you down midway you're likely vegetable for the rest of your life.

  4. Is cartel poniente still standing in torreon?

  5. Or did he kill himself?? Perhaps we will never know
