Searching for Fernando Valenzuela

 I received a video that I am trying to determine the legitimacy.  It has some detail information and it's different in that the person in the video reveals his face at the end.

The Taliban are from the community of Buenos Aires  in Nogales, they belong to El Tunco group affiliated with the Gigio but they tell me that there is no known internal fight, El Timo and Atilano are people of El 20's, El Timo is in a Lomas de Anda neighborhood and El Atilano in charge of light aircraft in Imuris. The funny thing is that they wear jackets and vests, it may have been recorded in winter so it may not be recent. I'm still looking for more information.

The word is that the people of El 20 went in search for Fernando Valenzuela, a drug sicario in the Pueblo Nuevo neighborhood, he accuses the sicario of killing the child and the authorities are also covering the sicario and incriminating Fernando. It is unknown why the sicario were looking for him.

This is how Things are in Sonora

 By Buggs for Borderland Beat

The murders in Sonora increased by 60% in 2020, after the bloody war that this northern state is experiencing. 

Just this last month of July in Ciudad Obregon reached up to 21 executions in just 5 days after the end of the month, it was a quiet month relatively speaking but it adds to the hundreds of executions in the city. Obregon joins Caborca, Hermosillo, Empalme, Guaymas, Etchojoa, Huatabampo and Navojoa in the wave of homicides related to criminal cartel activities.

In Obregon this weekend the businessman and owner of the restaurant "La Palapa del Bucanero" was executed. Sergio Meraz Reyes was shot to death inside his vehicle. He was known in the business and social circles in the local community.

The Caro Quintero Factor in Sonora

By Buggs for Borderland Beat

Rafael Caro Quintero

The deep seeded roots of influence of the Caro Quintero in Sonora demonstrate how powerful the surnames can be in a territory marked by drug trafficking. Today we will not write about Rafael Caro Quintero and his extensive history within drug trafficking in the Sonoran region, but we will talk about some characters that drive a new movement that maintains confrontations in the state of Sonora.

We are talking about relatives of Rafael, characters who grew up in the mafia environment and today maintain the hierarchical inheritance of the illegal operations that once made this family grow. We are talking about the powerful promoters and operators that maintain the war for Sonora against the Sinaloa cartel, especially with the children of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera "Los Chapitos" and his army of La Gente Nueva.
