Last September in Mexico City, 43 students disappeared and killed. The man who is suspected to have committed these murders is a member of drug cartel and goes by the name of Felipe Rodriguez. He has several previous charges and is known to the police.
Felipe Rodriguez aka “The Brush” who is the Guerreros Unidos gang member was deprived of liberty and it is believed that he is responsible for disappearance of 43 students. In a brief statement given by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office was not spoken about the investigation nor was revealed more details.
Police said that of the 43 students who were killed, 26 were from the City of Iguala. They were killed and their bodies were burned to aggravated identification, after that they were thrown into the river. This cruel method of killing greatly complicates the identification of victims. For now, with the help of DNA methods, successfully was identified only one victim. While under heavy national circumstances, investigators are hoping that the case will not be closed and that they will be able to identify the other 42 victims of this brutal murder. The pressure can be felt by the public and the family members of missing, who wish to see ending of this investigation soon. The police is currently doing everything in their power to end this investigation.
DNA testing in most cases will help in determining identification of victims. However in this case it is a very difficult job lean victims’ remains were burned. And then so charred thrown into the river. All this represents a major puzzle for researchers because they do not have with which to compare the DNA of the victims.
Guerreros Unidos gang cartel is one of the largest in Mexico City. Authorities believe that in their network is implicated more police officers and political officials of this country.
In November last year, mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca, was arrested due to the drought that he had ordered the kidnapping of these students. It is not known the reason why did the mayor Jose Luis Abarca, ordered the kidnapping of these college students, for now. But what is known is that in the same period his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda, was arrested and charged with organized crime and money laundering. The couple is now in custody, but a trial for crimes for which they were the accused has not started yet.
Officials believe that in this whole crime of disappearance and murder of 43 students is involved more than 90 people and they all are suspected of complicity in the crime. Most of the suspects are police officers. This store yet a waits for its ending but in meantime everyone should keep an eye on their kids. Parents can help and educate their kids on safety and security. It has been a great issue in all of the world and cases like this are on a rise. To prevent this from happening all of us need to contribute and help out.
