commando attacked the facilities of one of its transport companies, located on
the Las Tears road, in that municipality.
According to the newspaper Reforma, his wife, former
local deputy Alejandra Torres Novoa, a brother and another person were injured
in the attack.

Estefanía Monroy was investigated by the Attorney
General’s Office of Guanajuato for his possible link with the Santa Rosa de
Lima Cartel, headed by the huachicolero leader José Antonio Yépez Ortiz

Three days ago, the former mayor reported that he
was the victim of a robbery by armed men who stripped him of his luxury van
when he went to a hotel in the city of Cortazar.

stormed three public
hospitals in Apaseo el Grande, Juventino Rosas and
Salvatierra. In the latter town, the commando entered the General Hospital from

left him lifeless in an adjoining municipality.
The events were captured by the hospital’s cameras,
and would have occurred on November 21 (according to unofficial sources), when
men with weapons submitted a watchman, and then entered several rooms in search
of the deceased today, whose body was located dismembered and with a cardboard.
A similar situation was experienced in the public
hospitals of Apaseo el Grande and Juventino Rosas, where criminals took by
