BREITBART — PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — The government in this border state is preparing to arrest various officials tied to the mass extermination of kidnapping victims inside a state prison at the hands of the Los Zetas drug cartel. The move follows a Breitbart Texas exposé on mass extermination massacres carried out by the Los Zetas drug cartel under prior administrations.
Breitbart Texas has spoken with various sources within the Coahuila government and law enforcement officials who confirmed that the authorities have an open investigation against prison officials and other individuals accused of corruption in connection with the massacre. The move comes after the immense political pressure that has been placed on the Coahuila government as more and more details of the rampant corruption that allowed the massacre to take place.
The pressure comes after Breitbart Texas uncovered a period where mass extermination massacres occurred in the northern rural communities of Coahuila. Soon after the story was published earlier this year, the most respected news outlets in Mexico vetted the information and began to also carry out their own investigations into the massacres by Los Zetas. It was during the term of former Governor Humberto Moreira that the ruthless drug cartel was able to operate with complete impunity and various levels of government protection.
