Mexico Offers $4.7M Or $111K Reward For Each Of 43 Iguala Missing Students

Mexico announced that it is now offering about $111K for each student or $4.7M reward for information leading to the whereabouts of the 43 missing Iguala students.

October 21, 2014

Mexico,  D.F. - On Monday, Mexico's federal Attorney General's Office (PGRF) has announced that it is now offering $111K ($1.5M pesos) for each missing student or $4.7M ($64.5M pesos) for information leading to the whereabouts of the 43 missing students from Ayotizanapa. The students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos school were kidnapped by corrupt Iguala municipal police officers and members of the criminal organization the Guerreros Unidos on September 26.
On Friday, mayors from 16 of 18 municipalities reported a shut down of their government offices in anticipation of the mega-march to avoid unnecessary confrontations with area protesters who have been advocating the release of the 43 missing students by the Guerreros Unidos (GU) criminal organization. The GU have bought off several corrupt mayors from Cocula and Iguala municipalities including some members of their police force to carry out extortions, kidnappings, torture and murders for the criminal group.
On Friday, thousands of students, teachers and activists participated in a mega-march seeking justice for the killing of at least six people including students and the kidnapping of 43 students, which are still missing since September 26.
Sidronio Casarrubias Salgado, one the main leaders of the criminal organization the Guerreros Unidos was taken into custody on Friday in the state of Mexico by federal police and military, according to Jesús Murillo Karam, the Mexican federal Attorney General. Salgado's arrest could provide information about the whereabouts of the 43 students that were reported missing from Iguala since September 26.
So far, more than 50 suspects have been detained including 14 municipal police officers from Cocula, 22 municipal police officers from Iguala, 16 members of the Guerreros Unidos including several of its leaders, Salgado and Salomón Pineda, aka, "El Molón."
Cocula Mayor César Miguel Peñaloza was also arrested in connection with the missing students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos school in Ayotizanapa. 
The federal and state attorney general's office are searching for Iguala Mayor José Luis Abarca Velázquez, his wife, María de los Ángeles Pineda and Felipe Flores Velázquez, Iguala's Public Security Director who have disappeared and went into hiding after the students were kidnapped and some were brutally tortured and killed. Abarca Velázquez, Pineda Villa and Flores Velázquez have been implicated in the students murders. At least nine clandestine graves have been discovered and 28 bodies have been recovered. An additional four mass graves have been uncovered and authorities are investigating, if the remains recovered are some of the missing students.
In an unrelated homicide, Mayor Abarca Velázquez is also accused of personally killing Arturo Hernández Cardona, the leader of the United Popular organization from Guerrero in late May to early June 2013, according to a notarized affidavit from Nicolás Mendoza who witnessed the cold blooded murder by Abarca Velázquez. Abarca Velázquez shot Cardona in the face and chest while saying "I'm going to have the pleasure of killing you" as Flores Velázquez watched, according to Mendoza. Félix Rafael Bandera Román and Ángel Román Ramírez were also killed. Román attemped to escape and was fatally shot and Ramírez tried to run from another location where the remaining five kidnapped victims were taken to be executed. The victims had been tortured and beaten for several days. Mayor Abarca Velázquez and Flores Velázquez were not charged for the murders in 2013 because the Guerrero state Attorney General's Office filed the case and didn't act. Federal prosecutor, Karam confirmed to Aristegui that René Bejarano from the PRD political party had mentioned Mayor Abarca Velázquez 2013 Cardona murder case to him when Bejarano was at the federal Attorney's General Office talking to Karam for a different issue, but Bejarano never gave Karam the file and evidence to prosecute Abarca Velázquez as he promised. Karam has now taken up the Cardona, Román and Ramírez murder case against Mayor Abarca Velázquez. If Abarca Velázquez would have been prosecuted by the Guerrero state Attorney General's Office for the Cardona, Román and Ramírez murders in 2013, the Iguala student massacre could have been avoided, according to Karam.

Two Vehicle Collision On S. 6th Street And W. Historic Mitchell Street, Multiple Injuries

Photojournalist jumps into action and helps injured man from bleeding to death from a head injury.

October 19, 2014

"I arrived at an accident just in time around 2:30 a.m. on early Sunday to help a man with a head injury that was bleeding and could have died on the sidewalk after a two vehicle collision. I applied pressure to his open head wound to stop the bleeding after an accident at S. 6th Street and W. Historic Mitchell Street in Milwaukee,  WI. I noticed that everyone else around were in panic mode or just froze at the time. One guy asked me to help out the injured man and I quickly acted and kept him alive. I believe he will survive, hojala?
His friends were yelling at him "Bebo" as an alias to get up. I'm glad to have helped him live another day!
Fire rescue arrived and they took over after a firefighter told me to leave, pinche guey. Another firefighter in charge chased witnesses away and was very rude to people. Lack of  professionalism by him. I did my deed for the day.
There was another injured person or persons inside a gray vehicle, but the man on the sidewalk needed help first.
Thought I was getting a story on site and got involved, wow! Kept my cool and I hope it really pays off with the injured man surviving," by H. Nelson Goodson, Hispanic News Network U.S.A.  :)

Update: Police say three people injured, two seriously after a red Acura ran a stop light and slammed into a Toyota. A 21-year-old man driving the Acura who fled the scene of the accident along with two passengers later surrendered to police after 11:00 a.m. on Sunday. He is facing several charges, driving with a suspended license and felony hit-and-run.
Also good news, Noel Luciano, aka, "Bebo" survived and is being released from the hospital and going home, according to Facebook postings on Monday.
