Another Prison Warden murdered

In less than a week, another prison warden was kidnapped and decapitated, this time in Morelos. Luis Navarro Castañeda, the director of the Atlacholoaya Penitentiary in Morelos, was kidnapped Saturday and his decapitated head, bearing a written message from the South Pacific Cartel, was discovered at the local hospital. His body parts were subsequently discovered in various locations of the city. Another body was also discovered in Miacatlán.
A mass grave containing from 20 to 28 bodies has been discovered in the community of San Francisco Cuadra in the municipality of Taxco de Alarcón, Guerrero. The army had received an anonymous tip leading to the discovery. Another body was discovered in the trunk of an abandoned car on the Cocula-Iguala federal highway while 2 other bodies were found in Nogales, Sonora. A group of 4 youths were shot in Mexico City yesterday, in the Iztapalapa neighbourhood. This makes 7 shootings in the last two days in Mexico City (with the 3 men shot in Condesa, 2 of them dead).

This brings the count to 4426 (7064) for 2010.

And, last, the ex-director of Interpol-Mexico, Rodolfo de la Guardia, is now being charged with money laundering for the Beltrán-Leyva brothers.
