Latin America World

Motorists passing through the area reported to authorities that on a pedestrian bridge located in the vicinity of the Sánchez Taboada neighborhood, there was a blue backpack and a white cloth with an intimidating message.

It was around 10:30 a.m. on Friday, February 12 when the report reached the emergency center. Elements of the Municipal Police arrived at Sánchez Taboada Boulevard and Cruz del Sur Avenue, and confirmed the report.

A backpack at the crime scene contained the severed head of a person. And was accompanied by a narco message addressed to rival gangs operating in the area.

At the moment the content of the message is unknown.

Just on the night of Wednesday, February 10, a white blanket with a text in black ink was hung on the same bridge that read: 

The new enforcers have arrived. From now on we are the new owners of the Sanchez Neighborhoods. An adjustment has been made. Things will be as before. Whoever was messing with my men in the past. Will now be executed by 10 of my men for every 1 of yours. We will only assassinate those individuals who are messing with innocent civilians. We hold no fear whatsoever. Sincerely, C#01 y C#07
