Guadalupe, Nuevo León, Mexico - The Mexican Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) in a press conference announced that military police arrested Daniel de Jesús Elizondo Ramirez, aka, "El Loco" in connection with 49 beheaded homicides. Ramirez was taken into custody over the weekend in the municipality of Guadalupe after firing a weapon and throwing grenades at authorities in an attempt to elude the military. He is being charged for using exclusive weapons reserved for the military only, multiple homicides and drug trafficking.
Ramirez confessed to participating in multiple homicides and the dumping of the dismembered bodies of 49 victims near the municipality of Cadereyta on May 13, according to Sedena Brig. Gen. Edgar Ruiz Villegas Meléndez. Ramirez was identified as the Zeta leader in charge of the town of San Juan.
Meléndez said, that José Ricardo Barrajas Lopez, "El Bocinas" was also involved in the murders and had actually video taped the dumping of the bodies. The video was later posted on the internet. On February 18, Lopez escaped from the Apodaca prison, according to Meléndez.
Another suspect, El Camarón is being sought in connection with the homicides.
Ramirez told authorities that he received orders from Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, aka, "El Lazca," Miguel Angel Treviño Morales, aka, "El Z40" and El Morro, the Zeta leader in Nuevo León to kill the victims and then blame the Gulf Cartel for the homicides. The Gulf Cartel has denied the Zetas allegations that they committed the murders. But last weekend, military police detained at least 44 suspected members of the Gulf Cartel in the Monterrey area.
They have been feuding with the Zetas along the U.S.-Mexico border to gain control of the multi-billion drug trafficking routes near the border.
