Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico - This week, the Cartel de Sinaloa joined Interpol, both the Mexican military and Federal Police in their search for fugitive Sergio Rafael Barraza Bocanegra, 22. Bocanegra is accused of taking part in the planned killing of Marisela Escobedo Ortiz, 52, on December 16 and the September 2008 murder of Rubi Marisol Frayre Escobedo, 16. He had confessed to the killing of Rubi Marisol and led police to a hog farm where her dismembered body was found. Bocanegra is believed to have participated in the cold blooded murder of Ortiz who was chased by a gunman and shot at three times, including a fatal shot to the back of her head while a surveillance camera captured the killing. (Building video of chase and murder:
Mexican authorities are offering $500,000 pesos ($41,000 U.S.) for information leading to the arrest of Bocanegra and his accomplices. They issued an international warrant because Bocanegra could have left the country and Interpol joined the search.
Bocanegra is an alleged member of Los Zetas and now, the Cartel de Sinaloa has also joined in the manhunt for Bocanegra, according to several hand written poster size signs discovered around Ciudad Juarez and the Chihuahua Capitol city. The Narco message from the Cartel de Sinaloa (CDS) said, they have join in solidarity with the Marisela Escobedo Ortiz family and the people of Chihuahua in finding those responsible who committed the cold blooded murder in the death of Ortiz. Whether they are Los Zetas or La Linea pigs and beasts who have been protected by the state government, turn them in, the CDS massage read.
Ortiz had struggled for two years to bring Bocanegra to justice for the murder of her daughter Rubi Marisol in 2008.
The day Ortiz was killed, she was outside the Chihuahua state government building in the city of Chihuahua demanding justice from Governor César Duarte and the Chihuahua Attorney General's Office.
Last April, Bocanegra had been freed by Municipal Judges Catalina Ochoa Cervantes, Netzahualcóyotl Zúniga Vasquez and Rafael Boudib Jurado when they decided to absolved him of all charges stemming from the Rubi Marisol homicide for lack of evidence. Bocanegra claimed he was tortured by police and forced to confessed.
Bocanegra had been convicted in absentia for Rubi Marisol's murder and had been sentenced to 50 years in prison, ten years less than the maximum sentence.
The three judges have been suspended and may be facing charges for letting a criminal go free who was deemed dangerous to the public. Federal officials are looking into any possible connection the judges had with Los Zetas or organized criminal entities.
