Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens: Nuevo Laredo (Mexico), Prison Break in Piedras Negras (September 17)
The U.S. Consulate Nuevo Laredo alerts U.S. citizens of a large-scale prisoner escape from the Piedras Negras Central Prison on Monday, September 17, 2012. These prisoners remain at large. Although Mexican federal and local security forces are on the scene and the prison is reported secure, security sources warn that many of the escapees have known connections to Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCO), and may join TCO activity in the Piedras Negras and Nuevo Laredo areas. The U.S. Consulate urges all U.S. citizens to maintain a low profile and a heightened sense of awareness and to avoid the area in close proximity to the prison, which is located near the intersection of Ave. Lazaro Cardenas (Hwy 57) and Calle Santa Cruz.
There MAY BE VERY graphic photographs that accompany some articles in the body of this report. It is not our intention to sensationalize. We include these photos in order to give to you, the American public, a clearer understanding of the seriousness of the situation in Mexico and Central America.
**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.
MONTERREY AND APODACA, NUEVO LEÓN
Police authorities have reported 7 people killed Sunday afternoon. State investigators say it appears to be rivalry between cartel gangs.
An initial count from a shootout between military and gunmen Saturday is 4 bad guys dead. Vehicles and weapons were seized.
Mexican Marine snipers, trained in Colombia, are now deployed in Coahuila. They are trained to shoot from an aerial platform and are pilots.
A video posted by MundoNarco gives figures of 90,000 people dead and 300,000 missing. Note it is in Spanish. (Editor comment: These figures are based on a known count, but likely omits those where an entire family disappears and is killed, and there is no one to report it. Or when survivors choose not to report it out of fear.) http://youtu.be/ilJKJ6EA0_c
The Deputy Chief of the Municipal police was assassinated at about 8:30 pm on his way home from work Tuesday night. This now makes three officers killed in recent weeks, with the other two being 2 female officers whose bodies were dumped on the road between Torreon and Saltillo.
Two more gasoline stations were burned Monday night and Tuesday morning. Municipal police stayed in the area to protect the fire fighters.
Two men were killed and one gravely wounded during a shooting at a shopping mall here on Tuesday evening. The men were outside a restaurant when gunmen drove up and opened fire.
VALLE DE CHALCO, STATE OF MEXICO*
Three bodies were found inside a patrol vehicle for this municipality. The officer and a woman were decapitated and dismembered, and the other body was the officer’s brother. All had been shot several times. A second report says the attorney general’s office is investigating if these are connected to other officer deaths, and officers missing. A nearby town has reported finding dismembered and beheaded bodies there.
GOMEZ PALACIO, DURANGO**
On Monday evening, federal police came under attack, resulting in two federal agents killed, and 4 injured. A civilian female bystander was also killed in the first attack, which occurred in front of a hotel. The woman and one agent died there. Agents requested assistance from colleagues from neighboring Torreon. As they responded, the reinforcements came under attack by alleged accomplices of the initial attackers. This resulted in a vehicle crash, which injured two officers and killed another.

(Editor’s Note: Melanie Kortlang, near San Diego, lost her daughter to a drunk illegal, and wrote this yesterday, posted with her permission. It shows that the pain caused is lifelong for the survivors: “Well, today my beautiful daughter Amy would be celebrating her 28th birthday. But we don’t get to celebrate it with her because a drunk driving illegal murdered her. I miss her so badly it hurts. We will have her annual bday dinner in her Honor at her favorite place.
