BREITBART — MATAMOROS, Tamaulipas — Mexican government officials are once again trying to cover up and minimize the scope of the out of control cartel violence that continues to terrorize this border region by covering up a clandestine Gulf Cartel gravesite used by the criminal group to incinerate and bury the remains of their victims.
After almost a week of silence, the Tamaulipas government has finally admitted that they did find evidence of a cartel operations center where they found drums, ashes and bones. However as the political race for Tamaulipas governor continues to heat up, government officials appear to be covering up the true scope of the narco-graveyard with a series of contradictory statements in their prepared comments. Breitbart Texas has previously reported on the close ties that former Tamaulipas governors have had with both the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas. Currently former Tamaulipas governors Tomas Yarrington and Eugenio Hernandez are considered fugitives by the U.S. Department of Justice on money laundering charges; Yarrington is also wanted on drug trafficking charges.
As Breitbart Texas initially reported, last week Mexican authorities discovered a campsite that had been used by the Gulf Cartel to incinerate the remains of their victims. Initially authorities had suspected that the region was a clandestine gravesite, however authorities have since discovered large drums and other evidence. Mexico’s El Manana Newspaper also reported on the finding of multiple drums, ashes and fragments citing Tamaulipas government officials as sources.
