Conducting thread of the investigation on the youth of Lagos de Moreno
As a result of the friends’ investigations in Lagos de Moreno, human remains were seized in different points of the Altos Norte area of Jalisco, and none of the genetic profiles correspond to the five young peoplenor to the four women from Encarnación de Díaz, said Attorney General Luis Joaquín Méndez Ruiz.
“What has us busy right now with a greater number of personnel there is the issue of the four missing girls and obviously the five young Of all the evidence that has been located in Las Trojes, in the brickyard and some evidence that has been found where we believe they were deprived, until now we do not have positive opinions that coincide with the profile or genetic traits of the victims, nor of the four girls, nor of the five missing people.”
The analyzes of the localized human segments have led the authority to confirm a hypothesis that has been established for at least two years, or more, and that is that many of the disappearance victims are cremated in brick kilns of the demarcation, and according to the investigations it is a recurring practice of the Sinaloa Cartel in Teocaltiche, and it extended to the closest municipalities, now replicated by its rivals: the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).
