A commando armed with high power AK-47 rifles kidnapped a woman and two children in Alameda, Hermosillo, Sonora. Unofficial reports identify the victims as the wife and daughters of cartel kingpin Hector Beltran Leyva.
The kidnapping of the 45 year old woman occurred around 12:15 p.m. Thursday, in front of the house marked #11 on Sol street, located 300 meters from the State Police headquarters.
Witnesses state at least 8 kidnappers descended from two vehicles, a white sedan and a gold Malibu; both vehicles carry the same characteristics of vehicles used in the recent execution of an ex-police turned lawyer Antonio Contreras Dominguez.
Preliminary invistigations have established the victim, identified only as Rebeca, arrived at the home in a 2009 black Toyota Tundra. Traveling with the woman were her two minor children, an Engineer and contractor who were remodeling the above mentioned residence.
Hector Beltran Leyva is the brother of the fallen BLO kingpin, Arturo “Boss of Bosses” Beltran Leyva. Since the shootout death of his brother in December 2009, Hector has been involved in a bloody standoff with Edgar “The Barbie” Valdez Villarreal for the leadership rights of his brother’s cartel.
