Guerrero: Former Commander of Ministerial Police Linked to Ayotzinapa Case Murdered


On June 16th, the former commander of the Ministerial Police of the Guerrero State Attorney General’s Office (FGE), Humberto Velazquez Delgado, ‘El Guacho’, was executed by an armed group that broke into his business, located in front of the III Battalion of Army Special Forces, in the middle of the urban area of ​​the city of Iguala.

He was considered a key element in the case of the forced disappearance of the 43 students of the Ayotzinapa Rural Normal School, which occurred in Iguala in 2014. For the same reason, since 2016, the parents of the disappeared students requested the former head of the Office of Investigation of the Iguala Case, Alfredo Higuera Bernal, an “order of presentation and location” against Velazquez Delgado, whom they indicated as the leader of the criminal group Guerreros Unidos involved in what happened.

In his morning press conference the following day, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador ruled out that there was a campaign to silence key figures in the case. He assured that “nothing is going to prevent” clarification and justice for the victims. He reiterated that his government intends to solve this crime that continues to go unpunished and that it exhibited the levels of collusion of authorities at the three levels and of the Army with the drug traffickers.
