These photos are from April 12, 2010 – just after the war between Los Zetas and CDG (Cartel Del Golfo) broke out. R1 is a leader of the R faction of CDG (the CDG is divided into R faction and M faction, though both still claim Cartel Del Golfo). In this case, the victims are Zetas.
It started with shooting in Comarco, Tamaulipas in which sicarios from Cartel Del Golfo and Los Zetas confronted each other. Various business were burned, and so were the house of the mayor of Comarco, the Notary Public, and several other houses and cars.
The media reported the finding of a woman and a man decapitated in the main plaza of Comarco town, with a message painted on their bodies. Narcomensaje was left under the severed head of a woman which read (in Mexican Spanish):
“Esto va para todos los que apoyen a los mugrosos y mata inocentes Zetas. R1-CDG”
English translation of the message:
“This is going to happen to all those who support the filthy and innocent-killers Zetas. R1-CDG”
Prior to beheadings, both the woman and the man were clearly subjected to torture and underwent severe beatings. Los Zetas are extremely brutal with captured members of CDG so R1 returned the favor. But then again, this could have been said the other way around as well. Maybe it’s Los Zetas who return the favor for their members being treated like this. Mexico is caught in a vicious circle of torture and executions.
Many thanks to drccoco for the pics and Frankenchrist for translation:
