Cartel gunmen kidnapped, castrated, and murdered a group of men who are believed to be their rivals.
One of Mexico’s most violent organizations claimed credit for the gory crime scene, saying the victims were rapists and kidnappers–alleging the murders were part of a “cleanup.”
The gruesome crime scene was discovered in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, by authorities with the state attorney general’s office on a ranch called “El Cafetal.” Law enforcement sources revealed to Breitbart News the discovery of four men bound and castrated prior to their murders.
Authorities identified one of the four victims as Rey Jose Poblete Ramos, a man with a lengthy criminal history.
Despite confessing to the charge, Poblete Ramos was free two years later through suspicious court rulings.
