Body of this alleged snitch was found in the street of Pareo, Mochoacan, Mexico yesterday – October 30, 2012. He was shot in the face with exit hole in the neck. On top of this fatal wound, the alleged snitch bore signs of torture and had his hands tied. A cardboard with narcomensaje mentioned that this happened to him because he was a “dedo” which translates as “finger” but means “snitch”.
Authorities identified the man as 43 year old Madrigal Anacleto Garcia of Tancitaro, Michoacan. He was missing since Sunday. Narcos clearly don’t like people leaking information to the police. Kind of like Omerta in Italy – mafias sort their grievances with one another among themselves. Involving the police in any way is a big no no and bears the penalty of death with rock put into the dead man’s mouth as a sign that he/she died because he/she talked too much. I guess it’s similar in Mexico, minus the rock in mouth.
