According to proceso.com.mx this group of criminals committed at least four other kidnappings in SMA.

The woman was rescued before the ransom was paid, but the victim as mutilated, as the plagiarists cut off one of her fingers to send it to her relatives.

During a press conference, the state’s prosecutor Carlos Zamarripa Aguirre explained: “One of the alleged members was arrested during the operation and the other five were subsequently taken before the state authorities. Later on, another accomplice -also foreign- was identified, as the state’s attorney released a photograph to ask for citizen collaboration”.
