The 35Z Cartel arrives in Xalapa; Narcomantas appear
This news report is obviously flawed because it talks of a "35Z Cartel", when this is likely the work of a cell under 35Z/Z-35's command and not an independent cartel. Still, I thought I would stay faithful to the wording of the article.
Anyone know who Z-35 is? (I recall a Z-35 in Veracruz some years back, who was arrested. Maybe he's been released?) Also, which Zetas faction is he a part of? "Cartel del Zetas"?
They were placed in Xalapa Avenue and in Lázaro Cárdenas
Xalapa, Ver.- The morning of this Friday caused an expectation the appearance of blankets hung on bridges of this city.
On the pedestrian bridge located on Xalapa Avenue, above the Normal School of Veracruz, there was placed a narcomanta with the following text:
"There are your fucking traitors, fucking filthy slaves killed their own family, now they have an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, just as their family of these traitorous dogs died. Do not go to kill each other before I kill you, you follow your Giler or Chochiloko or Cesario Carrillo Zavaleta and also your starving tyrant or hidden shadow because we are here in Xalapa. Atte the 35 Z "
The blanket was removed by staff of the State Police.
It is also known that a second blanket with the same text was located on the pedestrian bridge of the Avenida Lázaro Cárdenas, at the height of Veracruz Street. The same happened in the vehicular bridge of the Boulevard Xalapa-Banderilla in front of the gas station Macuiltepetl.
It should be remembered that a few days ago there was diffusion about the execution of two people through social networks, and that today appear in a blanket.
Re: The 35Z Cartel arrives in Xalapa; Narcomantas appear
Thanks for the clarification, Chivis. I was unaware that 35Z was an independent group. I did some searches but didn't find much from before 2016 (they hung up some mantas in June/July). What's the background of the group? Are they a splinter from a larger group?
Re: The 35Z Cartel arrives in Xalapa; Narcomantas appear
El 'Negro Gallero' y Erick Manuel Lee Becerra, 'El Güero Lee'.
After the capture in Hidalgo of Ciro González, alias El Puchini, arrested in October last year, two factions arose: 'Los Puchini' and Los 35 Z, who finally stayed with the Squares of a command of Los Zetas identified as' El 500 'or the' 512 '.
see comment below...I know 35z has been around much longer than a couple of years. and they were never allied with zetas of any faction. but things can change. I will say that the group and I call them a kidnapping auto theft gang, had good protection from municipal police in Ver, so the only reason they would need zetas is to help with CDG, who had been killing their members and challenging territory in the northern most part of Ver.
The way I see it.... the more people that don't like me, the less people I have to please

How was the 35-Z formed?

These last ones, took control of all the north of the state of Veracruz when taking down in a confrontation to the "commander 500", that had been at the head of "Los Puchini".
