‘La Tuta’ Calls for Rebellion in Michoacán
(Mexico City) Servando Gómez, alias “La Tuta”, and fugitive leader of La Familia Michoacána, communicated with his followers in cartel and has urged a social rebellion of people from the villages to the mountains to stop the soldiers and police from dismantling the cartel in the region. The 44 year old drug dealer provided a recording with two speeches which included quotes from the guerilla leader Ernesto “Che” Guevara. He continued that ‘we invite you’ to be our family, and join us in planned marches. (Note: recent deadly attacks in Apatzingan were followed by villagers marching for removal of police and military.) Mexican authorities countered with the number of police killed by the cartel, the number of beheading’s (18) by the cartel, and said the family pulls juveniles into the drug market and then uses addiction to operate. In the audio, “La Tuta” said “We are in a just cause, a social cause”. Until 2008, the Family was partnered with the Zetas in the Gulf region, until it seceded from them. The two cartels began fighting over territory to hide synthetic (meth) drug laboratories, cocaine routes and marijuana fields.

Two Sacks with Dismembered Human Remains Left in Street
(Guadalajara) Human remains, contained in two sacks, were abandoned in the streets of a Guadalajara neighborhood. A message indicated it was in revenge for another killing. There is a dispute between two area drug trafficking groups for control of drug sales in Jalisco. The message left with the bodies also threatened there would be three killed for each one of theirs. Shortly after the discovery of the dumped bodies, another body was found dumped on the road to Morelia, which showed signs of torture. It has not been established if there is a connection between the two cases.

Mexico: Government releases Gerardo Larios Garcia, chief of assassins in Colima

La Familia Intelligence Documents Reveal Operations
Federal troops last week clashed last week with the La Familia cartel, with the main leader for that area, Nazario Moreno Gonzalez, being killed. He was also known as ‘El Mas Loco’ (the craziest), and was considered the most important boss of the cartel and its spiritual guide and leader. Intelligence documents reveal there are 12 senior executives called apostles over the cartel, which in addition to cocaine also handles legal investments and has its own legal staff. Businesses include sales of tractors, courier companies, transportation, furniture and air conditioners. Authorities said analysis indicates that “The Family” controls sources of supply and production of cocaine from Peru and Colombia to Mexico, mainly along the coasts of Michoacán and Chiapas.
