Mexican judge Vicente Antonio Bermúdez Zacarías, who ruled on cases involving some of Mexico’s biggest drug lords, was assassinated by a gunman while out jogging near a gated community in Metepec, Estado de México.
The CCTV video of the assassination shows the 37 year old judge on a jog, when a hitman ambushes him from behind, and shoots him in the head at point blank range. The gunman and his accomplice then run in the opposite direction, where they reportedly get in a car and drive away.
The incident happened at around 8:30 am on Monday, October 17, 2016. The judge was rushed to hospital but was declared dead shortly after.
Vicente Antonio Bermúdez Zacarías was notorious for deciding cases of Mexico’s most famous narcos. Recently, the judge suspended the extradition of head of the Sinaloa cartel Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the Unites States to face drug trafficking charges there. Earlier, he processed the case of Miguel Angel Trevino Morales – ex-leader of Los Zetas.
