Now again Mexican federal police report discovering a new mass grave containing numerous unidentified human bodies the exact number police are refusing to say. But usually reliable anonymous sources tell the Journal that up-wards of a dozen bodies have already been dig up plus two severed heads and three torsos
World headlines in late January 2004 reported the gruesome discoveries of murdered victims in Ciudad Juarez where federal Mexican police recovered the bodies of 12 tortured and murdered men from a “narco grave”. In a stunning declaration, Santiago Vasconcelos, the head of the federal anti-organized crime unit known as SIEDO announced that members of the Chihuahua State Judicial Police (PJE) had carried out the forced disappearances and executions of the victims at the behest of the Carrillo Fuentes drug cartel.
Now again Mexican federal police report discovering a new mass grave containing numerous unidentified human bodies the exact number police are refusing to say. But usually reliable anonymous sources tell the Journal that up-wards of a dozen bodies have already been dig up plus two severed heads and three torsos. All the vistums remains so far have been found in the clandestine grave in the backyard of a Juarez home in the 1800 block of Cocoyoc Street in the Cuernavaca area of Juarez. .
Mexican federal police say they expect to discover more bodies because so far they have only dug up half of the property.
The Journal learned that Mexican federal police raided the home and seized a large amount of marijuana and arrested two people, Francisco Javier Chavez Nieto, 47, and Sulema Yanir Felix Pinuelas, 37, According to the Mexican federal Attorney General.
Juarez police report that the first body was discovered just last Thursday, and so far other corpses were found one more each day.
The Mexican federal police investigating this mass grave site is the same police agency charged with investigating murders and kidnappings throughout the country of Mexico as well as the massive sex-related serial killings of young women in that city. Back in 1993 was the first year that the mass rape-serial murders of young women in Cd. Juarez became widely publicized.
Families of missing relatives are already trying to determine if any of the bodies are their missing relatives. Juarez authorities claim dozens of anguished people from as far away as Torreon, Coahuila have made inquiries. These people are searching for loved ones who had earlier vanished into the border city’s violent streets.
On the US-Mexico border, where powerful drug cartels and there enforcers murder people on a regular bases our investigation shows that during the last several years, hundreds of people from Tijuana to Matamoros have been forcibly taken by heavily armed men, many believed to be the infamous “Los Zetas.” This much feared group are believed to be the elite "special forces" of the Mexican military, trained in the U.S. at the School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia and sent to "wipe out" powerful Mexican drug cartels. See They're known as "Los Zetas
Investigators say the dangerous bands of ex-military elite forces are operating not only in Mexico but in Texas and other parts of the United States unchecked. These rogue Mexican commandos blamed for hundreds of killings and kidnappings along the U.S.-Mexico border has carried out at least five drug-related slayings as far north as Dallas, a sign that the group is extending its deadly operations into U.S. cities, U.S. law enforcement officials say.
There is a list of over 200 missing persons who disappeared in Cd. Juarez. The FBI has identified 32 of the victims as being U.S. citizens. Juarez newspapers say that the actual number of disappeared or missing persons in Cd. Juarez is much higher but many people are frightened to report cases to the authorities. Estimates of Cd. Juarez’s disappeared surpass 1,000 individuals if both men and women are counted.
Amado Carrillo Fuentes took over the reigns of power in the Cd. Juarez’s drug organization after eliminating its former boss, Rafael Aguilar Guajardo, and setting off the city’s worst ordered killings and other criminal violence the city has ever known. Soon victims were being gunned down in restaurants and bars and disappeared from public streets, private businesses and homes.
U.S and Mexican border violence is damaging communities as crime-syndicate purges and gangland retaliations swirl around a multi-billion dollar per year drug business.
To fully appreciate the scope of the drug related violence in the border region, over a 1,000 drug related murders were reported in Tijuana from 2000-2008. Official Chihuahua state government figures reported in the Cd. Juarez’s El Diario newspaper registered a total of 1,000 or more murders in Cd. Juarez from 1995 to the end of 2007. In Sinaloa state, the birthplace of important border cartels, the press has reported close to 20,000 murders from 1980 to 2008. During the first two months of 2008 alone, murders were registered in the conflictive state, a place where rival bands of gunmen kill for control of the drug-producing Sierra.
This violence is starting the New Year off by making it at least 10 homicides in the first few days of February 2008, Juarez Mayor José Reyes Ferriz said.
Veteran Commander Luis Alfonso Rivera Villa, 35, and Special Agent Investigator Jesus Manuel Garcia Rodriguez, 25, both with the state of Chihuahua's preventive and intelligence gathering police agency known as Cipol. Their bodies, along with 87 bullet casings, believed to be from automatic gunfire were found on Simona Barba and Bosques de Aldama streets.
Murders and kidnappings on both sides of the border have significantly increased in recent years. The violence along the U.S.-Mexican border has increased so dramatically, the United States Ambassador to Mexico, Tony Garza, during his term issued an unprecedented number of diplomatic notes to the Mexican Government and threat advisories to U.S. citizens traveling to Mexico. During August 2005, the Ambassador had to temporally close the U.S. consulate in Nuevo Laredo in order to assess security.

Juarez Mayor José Reyes Ferriz said municipal police are starting random checkpoints hoping to catch motorists carrying weapons.
"It's necessary and urgent to have agents from the federal preventive police to patrol the streets the way that we need to confront this situation," Reyes Ferriz said in a news conference.
When contacted by this reporter Army Gen. Germa Redondo Azuara said the checkpoints were in cooperation with both state and federal police. He says that more federal officers and equipment have been rushed to Jaures the city bordering El Paso Texas.
Mexican drug cartels responsible for recent border violence have also cemented ties to street and prison gangs on the U.S. side. U.S. gangs retail drugs purchased from Mexican traffickers and often work as cartel surrogates or enforcers on U.S. soil. Intelligence suggests Los Zetas have hired members of various gangs at different times including an El Paso gang Barrio Azteca, Mexican Mafia, Texas Syndicate, MS-13, and Hermanos Pistoleros Latinos to further their criminal endeavors here in the states.
