**Asterisk denotes death involving a police officer or a member of the military serving in that capacity. Some items may be from notirex.com, lapoliciaca.com or historiasdelnarco.com. Some incidents of violence may not be included here due to the large number of death reports.
A representative of the law has assured a U.S.-based newspaper that the clashes in the recent past is a result of a power struggle within the gulf Cartel (CDG), leaving at least 3 dozen dead. The factions are loyal to leader Mario Pelón Ramírez against groups of Miguel El Gringo Villarreal. The violence crossed the Texas border, and Villareal is behind a team of kidnappers operating in southern Texas. The Gulf Cartel is linked to several executions in the Rio Grande Valley.
