The three murderers of Saul Alonso Rey Soto gave their preparatory statement today before the Second Criminal Court, in which they denied the facts under the pretext that they were beaten by the police for their ministerial statement.

He said that he came to Chetumal to travel, but that while he was here Caro Monje invited him to kill a taquero and that in exchange they were going to pay him 20 thousand pesos, with which he had planned to start a clothing business.

He added that at the time of the events, he had problems with his gun, so his partner Jonathan Jehovani Osorio Uriarte was the one who shot the taquero Saúl Alonso Rey Soto.

After listening to his ministerial statement, the accused was asked if he ratified his statement made before the Public Ministry, but to do so he was explained what the word ratify meant, and then he said that the content of his ministerial statement is correct.

The accused also reserved the right to answer the prosecutor's questions, among which they asked him to say if he knows Alejandro Lua Osuna, the first criminal he declared.

After this, the defense of the accused asked the judge to attest to the blows suffered by his client and he undressed behind the practice grid and showed bruises on various parts of his body, the largest being one on his buttock. straight and measuring around 20 centimeters wide and 30 centimeters long.

He indicated that he took them and showed them the house and that he was going to give each of them 20 thousand pesos for that work.

After the alleged criminal heard his ministerial statement, he recognized as his signature and fingerprint those that appear in the file, but he came out with the statement that was read to him is not correct because the judicial officers beat him and that they put a bag in his head.

  3. hope and pray that at some point Mexicans can let go of that evil. That the government starts working to help the people. To educate. To make the people feel like they have different paths they can take. It said cause I see that in mexico the people come in different complexions. And height and size. And they use this as a means to put each other down. That’s horrible. Why people put someone down because they aren’t the light skin European looking Mexican. I mean they make it seem like they aren’t the same race
