Mexican Narcos are keeping up with modern trends and incorporate them into the terror tactics spread among the population. In this case, the captured woman was stripped naked and had her throat slit with a knife while she was being held down on the floor with hands tied behind her back. Her real life name was used to create a Facebook profile with gallery of images of her execution and narcomensaje warning as profile description. But maybe it was all not as it seems.
The Facebook profile the alleged sicarios created bore the name Lucy Herrera Aleman Valdes aka La Sedosa (Google Translate tells me it means The Silky). The profile’s location was set to Ciudad Juarez in Mexico.
The main profile photo was a mugshot image of the woman with duct tape over her mouth. The profile contained all of her personal information and the description explained the reason why she was executed:
Soy la cochina de El Granjero pero m llamaron LA SEDOSA. Fui degollado en junio de 2012. Esto le va a pasar a los cochinos curiosos en el territorio de MM. Atte. LA SEDOSA MUERTA
Google Translate says it means:
I’m the whore of El Granjero (The Farmer) called La Sedosa (The Silky). I was beheaded in June of 2012. This will happen to the pigs who stick their noses into the territory of MM. Attention: THE DEAD SILKY
The profile was removed from Facebook shortly after it was created. It was first speculated that the woman was a corrupt police officer who worked for Los Zetas in Chihuahua but the claim that she was with the police was later debunked. The speculation that she was with Los Zetas has not been debunked yet so even though it was not made clear in the narcomensaje, I’m gonna assume she was one of them. I have no info on who the sicarios were, but clearly it would have been one of their adversaries – the Sinaloa Cartel, the Gulf Cartel or The Jalisco New Generation Cartel (formerly known as Los Mata Zetas). Los Zetas have been under a lot of pressure lately, especially with El Chapo Guzman himself wowing to eliminate them and with Mata Zetas growing rapidly in power and influence (the fastest growing new drug cartel in Mexico). While none of the cartels are the saints, it was Los Zetas who started involving the public in narco violence. El Chapo made claims that the cartels are drug traffickers and should do just that, not mess with lives of innocent people.
Another Best Gore member maintains that these are not genuine photos but rather leaked screenshots from a Brazilian amateur horror film. Mexican newspapers reported on the photos being posted on the Facebook page but it doesn’t necessarily mean the photos are from Mexico and are genuine. What do you guys think – real or fake?
