‘El Loco,’ Drug Cartel Leader, Arrested for Beheading of 49 People in Mexico
‘El Loco’ allegedly got orders from Zetas leaders Miguel-Angel Trevino Morales and Heriberto Lazcano to dump the 49 bodies bodies in the town square of Cadereyta, in the border state of Nuevo Leon in Mexico. Later, they had banners hung around the country denying responsibility in an effort to have their enemies blamed for the massacre.
The allegation came during a news conference to present the alleged Zetas local leader detained in the killings, Daniel Jesus “El Loco” Elizondo Ramirez.
Despite his nickname of “El Loco,” apparently got nervous about dumping the hacked-up bodies in the town and instead dumped them on a highway outside Cadereyta. The bodies with their heads, hands and feet hacked off were found May 13.
