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.
LOS NOGALES, CHIHUAHUA
Police received a report Monday morning of gunshots in the south of the city. They found the body of a 16 year old boy, executed with multiple shots from 9mm and .40 Cal. to the head. At least 16 shell casings were located.
Sunday, police officers from 3 municipalities were conducting surveillance when they were attacked by gunmen. In repelling the attack, two police officers were shot and killed.
On Monday, the remains of a chopped up male were found inside a blue cooler, after being reported to police at about 8am.
The body of a young man of 22 years was found thrown in the middle of the street near a Red Cross facility.
TAMAULIPAS and NUEVO LEÓN
Gunfights at 2 liquor stores over the weekend left 9 dead, and a minor wounded. Narcomessages were left on blankets in Nuevo Leon, which were removed by the Army.
On Monday, Tamaulipas authorities have reported at least 10 bad guys dead in a series of shootouts Saturday between Zetas and federal authorities. The clashes lasted about 2 hours. Both guns and explosives were used during the clashes.
There are indications the PEMEX blast may be connected to the Zetas, and that C-4 explosive was found in the rubble, which did not detonate. Experts reported finding traces of C-4 and unexploded explosive, which would have caused a higher casualty toll if it had exploded. Another report from the Mexico City police also reports 2 bombs.
TOLUCA, STATE OF MEXICO
Mexican Marines, federal police and other authorities have arrested 18 members of LFM (La Familia Michoacana) for executions which have taken place in recent days in the Valley of Toluca. It was also reported that 3 juveniles were arrested as well. Seized were 25 firearms, including 12 rifles, AR-15 and AK-47, and 13 handguns of various calibers, 55 magazines, three tactical vests, nine thousand handsets and 502 rounds of ammunition.
The bodies of 4 tortured and executed men were found dumped on Sunday morning.
VILLA PURIFICATION, JALISCO
The Mexican Army located a clandestine synthetic drug laboratory on January 24, and it has taken until now to completely dismantle and catalog all of it.
A state police agent, Abraham Macías Tetuán, was shot during a raid on a farm. On knocking on the door, he was met with bullets, striking him in the chest and abdomen. Three people have been detained in connection with the shooting.
