Los Zetas Mexican drug cartel leaves 5 decapitated heads: Ongoing terror continues as rival drug gangs try to shore up loyalty and fear as the government is left with new public relations debacle.
Mexico has been sent into shock after revelations that a faction of Mexican drug cartel Los Zetas has beheaded five people in one week in a bid to terrorize a rival sect of the gang.
Incredulously the beheadings were all discovered near a local elementary school, in the local Tamatan neighborhood of Ciudad Victoria, underscoring the gangs disregard for the effect such mayhem has on the community.
The beheadings, which took place in the capital city of the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, are a part of an ongoing feud between the two Los Zetas sectors.
The factions are fighting over control of Ciudad Victoria as the government tries to downplay the violence happening in the city.
A report via Breitbart News the ongoing rival behavior of the rival gangs carrying out the executions, despite government efforts to downplay the attacks.
Local media reports that the Grupo Bravo faction of Los Zetas left two coolers with three heads, two female and one male, outside an elementary school with a banner written in Spanish on Tuesday.
The warning threatens the rival faction Cartel Del Noreste or CDN and ‘to stop murdering innocent bystanders’.
It also specifically called out a man called ‘Chucho’, who is one of Cartel Del Noreste leaders in Ciudad Victoria.
One day before the three heads were left outside the elementary school the heads of two Cartel Del Noreste lookouts were found on Ciudad Victoria-Matamoros highway near the Olivo rural community.
A message similar to the one outside the elementary school was also left with those heads on Monday.
Breitbart reports that lookouts line the main roads to tip off the cartel gunmen about rivals or military movements.
The fighting between the two factions has led to violence, the likes of which have never before been seen in Ciudad Victoria.
Breitbart Texas has been working with citizen journalists in order to report on cartel action south of the boarder.
Those reporting face extreme retaliation at the hands of Los Zetas if their identities are revealed.
