A human head was left at the Humaya Gardens Cemetery tomb of cartel kingpin, Arturo ‘The Boss of Bosses‘ Beltran Leyva in Culiacan, Sinaloa. The same victim’s tortured body was laid in the tomb of another drug trafficker Gonzalo “El Chalo” Araujo within the same cemetery.
According to federal officials, the discovery prompted a large police mobilization, while experts and researchers inquire whether the body belongs to a public servant or member of Sinaloa armed forces since the Navy Department participated in the operation of the December 16 Cuernavaca, Morelos, where Arturo Beltran Leyva died.
Local authorities have stated in initial reports that the victim is a man between the ages of 30 and 35, with a dark complexion and short military style hair. A red flower was tucked behind the victim’s ear.
Arturo ‘Boss of the Bosses’ Beltran Leyva was buried in this cemetery on the 20th of December, four days after he died in a clash with the Navy Special Forces in the Altitude condominiums in Cuernevaca, Morelos.
Seven members of his criminal organization were also killed in the raid.
Two days after he was buried, a cartel commando executed the family of Melquisedet Angulo Cordova, a Mexican Naval soldier who was killed during the December 16 confrontation with the “Boss of Bosses”.
Among those who were executed were the Mother of Naval officer, Angulo Cordova, Irma Cordova Perez, his aunt Josefa Flores Angle, his sister Yolidabeit, and his brother, Benito Cordova. Another sister of the sailor was reported in critical condition and is now protected by the armed forces.
These events led personnel of the Navy, Army, PGR and Tabasco Prosecuting Attorney to install filters on the main highways in attempts to find the whereabouts of the narco-commando, who form a part of Los Zetas, the Gulf Cartel’s paramilitary enforcers allied with Beltran Leyva in this region of the country.
