Through Twitter Ivonne Dámazo, widow of Alfredo Velasco Lares, director of Finance Audit of the State Government, who was shot and killed on Tuesday night in the vicinity of Bosques de Santa Anita, in Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, asked for justice to be done.

The Secretary of Administration, Ricardo Rodríguez Jiménez, wrote his condolences on said social network.

"I deeply regret the death of my colleague Alfredo Velasco Lares. This news hurts and we hope that the facts will be clarified. To his family and loved ones my sincere condolences. R.I.P."

Ivonne Dámazo responded and emphasized that the official was murdered. She also asked the authorities to watch over the future of her daughters.

"Things as they are Ricardo, he did not die, he was murdered! For keeping his integrity! And in the end that's what counts... I only hope that more than condolences you watch over the physical and financial security of his daughters.... That's what he put so much effort into the job for!"

On Monday night Alfredo Velasco was traveling in an official car when he was shot at on Bosques de Santa Anita Avenue and Camino a Las Moras, by the occupants of a cab.

At least 124 public servants from different levels and agencies have lost their lives violently in the state so far in the current administration. While from January 2014 to March 2018 (year and three months) there were 307 autopsies of public servants due to violent deaths.

Data from the Jalisco Institute of Forensic Sciences indicate that from December 6, 2018 to March 13 of this year, 108 autopsies of public servants by firearm were accounted for.

The municipalities with the most deaths by firearm are Guadalajara with 31 Zapopan with 16, Tonalá and el Salto with 12 each.



  1. Can someone explain to me the importance of a State Bean-Counter to the cartel? I'm not trolling, it's just I don't know how this man's services would benefit a DTO. Please don't crucify me in the comments; I sincerely want to learn more.

    1. It stopped raining and now me can wash the car, it got mud driving in the open. I love to whistle.

    2. It’s like internal affairs so he must have found something on someone in the government he did not like because there mostly all curupt and was about to blow the whistle

    3. 6:37:
      The cartels frequently corrupt state and local officials with plato o plomo. There goal is usually to milk the state treasury. It's unlikely that this guy could withdraw funds from the treasury but the cartel probably thought he could. It could also have been to intimidate someone else working in the treasury.

    4. @Detroit it's Plata o Oro.

  2. That’s a lot of public servant deaths.

  3. When you kill the auditor, it's to cover theft and corruption. But don't worry, Amlo has a plan to make Mexico into a new paradise where people are safe and government is honest and government works to help the people

    1. Hopefully AMLO can share his plan with the U.S. and half the other countries in the world.

  4. 12:19@ AMLO says up with hope down with dope, and for a limited time everyone gets free hugs 🤗
