The ongoing cartel war between factions of the Los Zetas continues to bring terror, murders, and kidnappings to this city. The fear brought by this wave of crime has been worsened by the silence on the part of Mexican authorities.
As Breitbart Texas has been reporting, for more than 11 months, rival factions of the Los Zetas drug cartel have been fighting for control of this city and Nuevo Laredo. One faction, calling themselves Grupo Bravo and Vieja Escuela Z, have been trying to wrest control of the region from the faction known as Cartel Del Noreste (CDN). The raging violence has resulted in almost daily kidnappings, murders, beheadings and other gory executions.
The cartel executions continue to be used as a method for delivering messages where one faction leaves the body of their rival with a message on a poster board, banner or a social media message.
One of those cases took place in the suburb of Padilla where members of the CDN dumped the body of a recently killed victim and left a message threatening various leaders of Grupo Bravo and one of their casinos in Ciudad Victoria.
