Los Mochis, Sinaloa- The former Deputy Director of the Municipal police of Ahome, Nicolás Galaviz Vázquez was gunned down this Wednesday afternoon, 200 metres from the Palace of municipal government.
At least 26 pistol bullets were fired against Galaviz.
The deadly attack against the former police chief was carried out by at least two people. Witnesses noticed when Galaviz arrived aboard a Toyota RAV 4 SUV Sinaloa plate VML-1544, and parked on the sidewalk West of calle Guillermo Prieto, Cuauhtémoc and Boulevard Rosendo G. Castro, facing the Colegio de Bachilleres 02 high school and on one side of the Mexican Red Cross delegation.
The attack was recorded about 1:17 PM this Wednesday, just when the area was filled with pedestrians.
The former operating Chief of the municipal police was driving the white SUV and was killed in the driver's seat.
Galaviz Vázquez was one of the leaders of the police force who months ago were released from a maximum security prison in Veracruz, where there were imprisoned fro just less than a year, accused of encouraging the retail drug trade.
When he was arrested, he already enjoyed a disability pension.
After his release he devoted himself to private work.

The North of Sinaloa has seen a resurgence of kidnappings and murders, and the common thread is the involvement of local police......................
Crimes at close range. The case of the ex-police Nicolas Galaviz
Posted on April 21, 2013 by Luis Fernando Najera
It [the murder of ex-police Nicolas Galaviz] reinforces the hypothesis of the coziness between police and criminals
The cold-blooded murder occurred a short distance from fortified Municipal Palace of Government-The former operational Deputy Director of the Municipal police in Ahome, Nicolas Galaviz Vazquez, the release of a young man with visible traces of torture after 13 days of captivity underground, and the serial deprivation of freedom of several people, mainly young people, they reinforced the hypothesis that police departments could collude with criminals and let them operate openly here.
This is how armed groups operated freely, openly and with impunity. After reporting the facts, the Municipal police pretended to search for the offenders and prosecute those responsible, while the State Ministerial police did not move a single officer to the investigate the facts, except taking note of the case. By such passivity, no fact has been investigated, let alone punished.
The Attorney General of Justice of the State (PGJE) is completely despistada, or so appears it to be, of the origin of the violent wave that ended in one of its stages, with the murder of the former head of the police, although no official investigations found a responsible group: Los Morralitos, which could be a branch of the embattled and weakened, but not destroyed, group Los Mazatlecos, loyal to the triad group of Beltran-Leyvas-Carrillos-Zetas.
Galaviz Vazquez, who enjoyed a disability pension derived from years of service as a preventive agent, was killed at 1:15 p.m. Wednesday, April 17th in cold blood in a temporary parking spot located on calle Guillermo Prieto, between Tenochtitlan and Cuauhtemoc. The place was crowded with pedestrians and motorists, because it was the hour of departure for workers and students at the school of bachelors 02.
The former Commander of preventive had parked in a white 2007 Toyota SUV, owned by a construction company, who hired him as a messenger. He didn't notice when two men descended behind him in a white compact car, surrounded him, and from not less than five meters away opened fire with two 9mm pistols. The shots were directed to the head and chest. 26 projectiles were fired, 24 were misses. A single bullet pierced his body. As collateral damage from the attack, a young student was wounded and another fell prey to hysteria [from fear].
Juan Francisco Lopez Leal, Assistant regional Attorney of Justice, stated that there was no trace of the two killers, the origin of the attack or who had ordered it. They were clueless.
It was not the only case where police were bewildered, because they do not know how the young Luis Antonio Valencia Camacho, 22 years of age, and who lives in el ejido in Louisiana, had escaped, after being held captive and tortured for 13 days.
The boy was released Thursday, April 18th at the Juarez drain, to the West of the city, extremely weakened by the beatings and was handcuffed with his arms behind his back. A police patrol discovered him walking with a wobble, picked him up and transferred him to a hospital. He had been deprived of freedom on April 5th when he was on a motorcycle on the street Hermenegildo Galeana in the Colonia Alamos Country, by gunmen with rifles, "empecherados" and hooded.
Another case that the PGJE is also adrift is the murder of the fisherman Luis Isaías Ochoa Gaxiola, the Loco Bombas, 30 years of age, and whose body was restrained with plastic straps and was found with gunshot wounds floating in the canal Sicae, Friday April 12, one day after having been deprived of liberty in the cranes left bank. Luis Isaiah had the same destination and tragic end as his brother-in-law, who died two years ago, under similar circumstances.
It is not all because also the PGJE is stunned with the case of Juan Quezada, El Maniaco, a 23-year-old, who a group of armed men took from the colonia on October 12th, as well as in the case of a seller of cars that was kidnapped from the Mochis-Topolobampo road.
For all these cases of illegal deprivation of liberty, the State Human Rights Commission has not received a single complaint. "Except by means of communication, we do not have complaints, complaint or report of disappearances", said Maria Aracely Sepulveda Sauceda, visiting the North of Sinaloa.
Martín Lopez Felix, President Roberto Perez Jacobo Association of Attorneys, considered that the logistics, strategy and tactics of the perpetrators of murders and kidnappings would not have been successful if police had acted, "but there is an apparent collusion between the two."
