Texas trucker found murdered near Mexican border city

(BREITBART) — PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — A commercial truck driver from the border city of Eagle Pass was murdered in this border city setting off an investigation that continues to puzzle local authorities. The truck driver has been reported missing in Texas days prior to the discovery of his body in Mexico.

Recently authorities in this border state responded to a ranch called San Vicente not far from Piedras Negras in regards to the discovery of a body showing an advanced state of decomposition. Crime scene investigators documented the scene where the body was found and transferred the body to a local morgue.

The victims’ truck, a black Ford Expedition, was discovered at a nearby ranch called El Saucito, leading investigators to believe that the victim was murdered and dumped.

The body was described as being a male in his mid 30’s to early 40’s wearing work boots, jeans, and a white t-shirt. At the morgue authorities confirmed that the victim was Oscar Ramon Lopez Alfaro, an trucker from Eagle Pass who had been reported missing to Texas authorities by his relatives earlier this month.

Preliminary information points to Alfaro having been kidnapped by unknown gunmen shortly after crossing into Coahuila, being taken to the location where he was found, and being murdered. Investigators had not released the cause of death, which they reported was not easily noticeable due to the advances state of decomposition.

Gunmen execute young couple, set vehicle on fire near Texas border

(BREITBART) — PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — Authorities continue to investigate why a group of gunmen executed a young couple on the banks of the Rio Grande River and set their vehicle on fire.

Coahuila state investigators recently responded to the banks of the Rio Grande River near the Santa Maria neighborhood where they found a late model Jeep Commander fully engulfed in flames. Neighbors had called authorities after spotting the vehicle on fire.

As authorities got closer, they discovered a woman and a man laying in a pool of blood near the vehicle. The victims had been shot in the head but the woman was still alive.

Emergency medical personnel rushed the woman to a local hospital where she later died from her injuries. Soon after the murder, authorities were able to identify the victims as 28-year-old Valentin Guerrero and 24-year-old Montserrat Reyes Galaviz.

Authorities have not made a motive for the murder public. However, the border city of Piedras Negras has a long history of being a drug trafficking corridor for the Los Zetas drug cartel. Unlike other cartels, Los Zetas have sought to distinguish themselves through their ruthlessness and gory methods of executions.

Shootouts in Mexico Border City Kill 11, Including Bystander

(THE BLAZE) — CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico — Two highway shootouts between soldiers and suspected drug gang members in a northern border city resulted in 11 dead Saturday, including a bystander caught in the crossfire, Mexican authorities reported.

The violence in Nuevo Laredo, across from Laredo, Texas, prompted the temporary closure of the highway, which is a major artery for travel and commerce between the United States and Mexico.

The Tamaulipas state government said in a statement that the armed confrontations began early Saturday when troops killed eight suspected criminals on the highway. Soldiers seized a truck and high-caliber weapons, it said.

An hour later another shootout broke out nearby in which two suspects were killed, along with a woman who was traveling in her car, authorities said.

Nuevo Laredo Mayor Carlos Canturosas said Saturday night via Facebook that the highway, which handles nearly half of the export-import cargo between Mexico and the United States, had reopened.

Nuevo Laredo has experienced high violence rates as rival factions of the Zetas drug cartel fight for control of the area.

Mexican border state cop murdered for refusing to rob, rape woman

(BREITBART) — MONTERREY, Nuevo Leon — A state police officer reportedly gunned down a fellow cop for refusing to rob and rape a woman in this border state. The murder suspect lashed out in anger at the refusal by his partner to carry out the crime in the suburb of Apodaca.

Authorities continue their search for 33-year-old Sergio de la Rosa Pulido, an officer with the Fuerza Civil force, who is currently being sought on murder and rape charges. His fellow officers have been searching at his home and businesses he used to visit.

Cuauthemoc Antúnez, the Public Safety Secretary for Nuevo Leon, publicly confirmed the investigation and search of one of his officers with Fuerza Civil. The elite combat group is made up of state police officers that, according to authorities, are trained to handle high impact criminal activity such as the kidnappings and cartel gun battles which have spread through this border state.

Sources close to the investigation explained to Breitbart Texas that De la Rosa had been buying beers when he asked 26-year-old Marco Fragoso Caro to help him rob a woman in order to be able to buy more beer and then rape her. When Fragoso refused to take part in the crime, De la Rosa allegedly fired at the victim’s chest with an illegally owned handgun. Unlike in the U.S., weapons are heavily restricted in Mexico making it almost impossible for an average citizen to own and carry a firearm for self-defense purposes.

While authorities have not confirmed the details of the illegal weapons, sources with direct knowledge of the case confirmed to Breitbart Texas that the weapon was a .357 Magnum handgun. The murder weapon is not the duty weapon used by Fuerza Civil officers.

After murdering his partner, De la Rosa held the woman at gunpoint as he ordered her into her vehicle. The woman was able to drive away but not before the lawman sexually assaulted her, officials stated. The female victim reported the crime setting off a massive deployment of police forces that found the murder victim, began the rape investigation, and started a manhunt for De la Rosa. The wanted officer was able to run away from the crime scene and remains at large.

Trump declares war: Mexican cartel assets to pay for border wall

(BREITBART) — The resources of Mexican transnational criminal organizations, also known as cartels, will be seized and used to fund Donald Trump’s border wall if he wins the 2016 presidential election. The wall, which several previously high-trafficked areas of the U.S.-Mexico border already have–whether an actual wall or a several tiered fencing and integrated technological system–has been a controversial issue to pundits and politicians who lack information on the subject.

Trump’s idea to force the cartels to pay will likely manifest in the form of seizing their assets. It is likely that the U.S. State Department’s diplomatic shackles placed upon the FBI will be removed, as it is common knowledge that the State Department pressures the FBI to balance their law enforcement priorities with diplomatic concerns–a restriction that makes it difficult to properly address Mexican cartels when many of the elected leaders in Mexico are actually surrogates for those very cartels, as Breitbart Texas has reported ad nauseam.

Trump’s plan, as stated as early as March 2016, never included a wall on all 1,954 miles of land border. Trump committed to give the actual Border Patrol agents who patrol each of the nine sectors on the southwest border a seat at the policy table and to listen to where a wall is needed and where one is unneeded–a fact most pundits and journalists seemingly missed as they mistakenly discuss his allegedly changing positions on the matter.

The news first broke on Lifezette; however, the focus on cartels was downplayed in their coverage as an idea that is being “mulled over.” Trump’s campaign is now led by Stephen Bannon, the former head of Breitbart News who stepped down temporarily to run the campaign. Breitbart Texas’ Cartel Chronicles project began under Bannon’s leadership and the issue is dear to his heart. The project allows clandestine citizen journalists in several Mexican states that are under direct control from Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel to have a platform to expose the evils of the transnational criminal groups and has a stated goal of warring with the criminals and exposing them for the purpose of ending them.

Mexican drug traffickers and ISIS terrorists are cut from the same cloth

(NOSCOMUNICAMOS-SHOEBAT) — Iraq and Syria are in a very bad situation, but there is one country that is much more severe when it comes to Christian persecution: Mexico. ISIS has killed hundreds of Christians, but the pagan drug cartels in Mexico have killed tens of thousands of Christians. They behead people, they kidnap children, tear out their hearts and cannibalize them in pagan rituals; they kidnap women and make them sex slaves; they melt people alive in giant vats of acid. These victims are not in the hundreds, but the tens of thousands. The cartels worship the devil and the abysmal spirits.

The Mexican cartels are just as evil as Muslim terrorists, and they have butchered tens of thousands of Christians in Mexico. A major militia leader in Mexico, Jorge Vasquez Valencia, joined us at Shoebat.com to explain the nature of the fight against the cartels, how the cartels have butchered tens of thousands of Christians, and why Donald Trump is right about the border.

Ret. Lt. Gen. Flynn: Terror-linked nations ‘cutting deals’ with Mexican cartels to enter U.S.

(BREITBART) — Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), tells Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM that countries that are known to support radical Islamic terrorism are “cutting deals” with Mexican cartels for access to human smuggling routes into the United States.

Citing photos from the U.S. Border Patrol component of the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency on Friday, Gen. Flynn also told Washington Political Editor Matthew Boyle, host of Breitbart News Daily, that there are signs in Arabic posted along human smuggling routes at the section of the border that lies in Texas providing directions for how to sneak into the United States.

Moreover, the former DIA chief said that the Shiite Lebanese narco-terrorist group Hezbollah, an Iranian proxy, is illegally trafficking humans, drugs, and other contraband into the United States.

His comments echo recent warnings from the U.S. military, suggesting that criminal groups in Latin America may be collaborating with Islamic extremist organizations.

Gen. Flynn’s remarks came while he was discussing his new book The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies during Friday’s edition of Breitbart News Daily.

He told the host:

I talk about this in the book — about the threat in Central and South America from countries like Iran who have organizations like Hezbollah who run a large transnational organized criminal organization which move narcotics and other commodities as well as humans into our country…

I know from my friends in the Border Patrol in CBP that there are… radical Islamist countries, state-sponsored, that are cutting deals with Mexican drug cartels for some of what they call the lanes of entry into our country. And I have personally seen the photos of the signage along those paths that are in Arabic… they’re like way points along that path as you come in. Primarily in this case the one that I saw was in Texas and it’s literally… signs in Arabic… [that say] ‘this way, move to this point’…

This rise of Muslims and radicalized Muslims coming into our country illegally is something that we should pay very, very close attention to.

Gen. Flynn’s remarks came in response to Boyle asking for his reaction to Breitbart News’ recent analysis of CBP data showing that the U.S. border authorities apprehended 916 illegals from terrorism-linked countries, officially known as Special Interest Aliens (SIAs), in 2015 (454) and 2015 (462).

Drug cartel burns rivals alive near Texas border

(BREITBART) Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipias — Exclusive images obtained by Breitbart revealed that cartel gunmen have begun to set fire to their rivals while they are still alive, as part of the ongoing war between opposite factions of the Los Zetas cartel that are fighting for control of this border state.

The images speak for themselves as they show the bodies of at least two individuals who are believed to have been captured cartel gunmen.

The images revealed in detail how the victims contorted their bodies as the flames continues to consume them. The victims have not been identified, thus turning them into just one more notch to the list of the anonymous victims in Tamaulipas.

GOP draft platform will include Trump’s proposed border wall

(FOX NEWS) — The Republican platform committee included language calling for a border wall along the U.S. and Mexican border in the draft party platform, getting behind one of presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump’s keystone proposals.

The group wrapped up drafting the plan Tuesday in Cleveland in advance of the convention there next week, when the platform will officially be voted on by the full convention’s 2,472 delegates.

The proposed platform will express support for a “border wall” that must cover “the entirety of the Southern Border and must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.”

The measure was proposed by Trump supporter Kris Kobach, the secretary of state from Kansas.

“This is why we support building a wall along our southern border and protecting all ports of entry,” the measure says. “The border wall must cover the entirety of the southern border and must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.”

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, appearing on “On The Record with Greta Van Susteren,” said that including the border wall in the party’s proposed platform was a “hat tip” to Trump.
2016 Election Headquarters

“Whether it’s a fence or a wall, I mean, for years and years the platform has included the border fence, which congress passed in 2006 but never actually funded,” he said. “The idea of a border fence has been in our platform for many, many years and just changing the word from fence to wall is what they did and maybe it was a little hat tip to Donald Trump on that issue and that’s fine.”

“It’s something that the party had in the platform for a long time,” he added. “We are just saying what our position is but as far as who pays for it, you know, Congress already agreed that it would be paid for 10 years ago and now it will be up to President Trump to figure that one out.”

Mexican hitwoman claims she has sex with corpses after beheading them and drinks the blood of the dead

(UK DAILY MAIL) — A hitwoman for one of Mexico’s most notorious cartels has made a stunning confession from her California jail cell: she claims to have had intercourse with beheaded corpses and drank their blood.

Mexican media reports that 28-year-old Juana – also known as ‘La Peque’ (the little one) – of the ruthless Zetas cartel made the admission from a Baja, California prison.

Juana said: ‘Ever since I was a little girl I was a rebel, and then became a drug addict and an alcoholic.’

Juana was born in Hidalgo, near Mexico City. She became pregnant at 15 by a man 20 years her senior.

To support herself and her child, she worked as a prostitute – until delving into the dangerous cartel world.

Juana said she got her start as a ‘halconeo’ – a lookout for police and army patrols, according to Central European news.

Her job entailed standing at a lookout point for eight hours at a time. If she failed, Juana said she was tied up and fed a single taco per day.

During her time working for the cartel she bore witness to a host of gruesome moments, including a man’s head being smashed open with a mace.

‘I remember feeling sad and thinking I did not want to end up like that,’ said Juana.

Her aversion to blood did not last long, however.
