PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila – A team of cartel gunmen left a threatening message next to the body of a murder victim in this city near the Texas border.
The murder took place this week in the border city of Piedras Negras, immediately south of Eagle Pass, Texas.
Investigators documented the crime scene and revealed that the victim, Alfredo Vergara Aguirre, had been shot in the back of the head in a manner known as “execution style.” Next to the body, authorities found a poster board with a message threatening informants and others who cooperate with state police and state investigators.
The content of the message is identical to one recently left in Ciudad Acuna, just south of Del Rio, Texas, where gunmen left a severed head next to a poster board.
The execution comes almost at the same time as authorities clashed with gunmen near the rural community of Hidalgo, just south from the border with Texas and just West of the state line with Nuevo Leon, Breitbart News reported.
