Zeta Cartel Strikes in Sinaloa: Seven Dismembered Bodies Found

June 10th 2012   ·   6 Comments

Mexican police have found seven dismembered bodies in a Pacific Coast state where the country’s most-wanted man is battling its most aggressive drug cartel.
The attorney general’s office says the bodies were found early Tuesday in Sinaloa along with a message accusing authorities of cooperating with drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

Guzman is head of the Sinaloa cartel, and the letter’s wording suggests that it may have been written by the Zetas cartel.

The bodies were found stuffed into 13 black garbage bags and dumped in a residential area, authorities said. The victims were dressed in police uniforms but authorities confirmed none of the people killed were actually officers.

The Zetas have launched tit-for-tat attacks on Sinaloa strongholds since Sinaloa cartel gunmen and their allies moved in on Zetas turf.

Last week, suspected Zetas took the unusual step of using an airplane to drop thousands of leaflets accusing Sinaloa’s governor of taking orders from Guzman.

It is the most gruesome instance of drug cartel violence since the decapitated, mutilated bodies of 49 people were found strewn across a Mexican highway earlier this month.

The victims had their hands, feet and heads cut off. The Zetas cartel is also thought to be responsible for those murders, living up to their title as one of Mexico’s most deadly cartels. Police eventually arrested Daniel Jesus Elizondo Ramirez, also known as “El Loco” or “The Crazy One,” in connection with the killings.

It is becoming seemingly impossible to keep track of the death toll in Mexico’s drug war, which is now around 55,000 since December 2006. Roughly 50,000 additional people have disappeared.

    That’s right, leave the doors open and welcome these animals and the families they birth in our country. Call them American. Then call what they do our own and a ‘homegrown problem.’ http://jerrybrice.wordpress.com/2010/12/04/14-year-old-american-teen-edgar-jimenez-lugo-aka-el-ponchisforced-to-decapitate-4-victims-for-a-mexican-drug-cartel-captured-with-his-sister/

    Jerry Brice, author of the article, made a blanket statement in the article which is patently false! He wrote, and I paraphrasing, the American teenager is instilled with a need for violence and love of money so the cartels recruit American teenager to work for them.
    This is a generalization that is false! Only a few teenagers fit that description and they are not all American teenagers!! Mr. Brice, you owe American teenagers a sincere apology for your careless characterization of the American teen!

Why do you think the drug cartels are more violent in Mexico than the U.S.A.
