A grisly video appeared on the Mundo Narco website, of a savage Los Zetas execution of four persons.
As typical with execution videos, each captive is interviewed
individually. The doomed group consisted of 3 women and 1 man. As they
kneel with their hands bound behind their back, several sicarios are
standing in the rear, and one who appears to be in charge is in front to
the right. The sicarios are uniformed which bear a "ZETAZ" emblem.
What is far from typical in the video is the captives declare they are
relatives of “El Comandante del Diablo ,” his mother, sister in law,
sister, and brother. They state their name, "Banderas Padilla",
Diablo's full name is said to be Hugo ALberto Banderas Padilla. After
the brief period of interviewing, the heads of each, in turn, are sealed
with duct tape.
A couple of the captives seem hesitant of the answers they give, it
impossible to know why. Perhaps they were given a “script” before the
execution, or perhaps they were naturally frightened out of their minds
anticipating of what is about to happen.
"Look Comandante Diablo, here is your **** family” says the savage in
command as the head taping is being conducted. The audio is permeated
by the taping sounds making it difficult to define what is being said.
The video quality also leaves much to be desired. However, the video is
peppered with the usual threats such as, “Hey ****ing Diablo, this is
what happens to your people, *******”.
After their heads are sealed, the victims are subjected to skillful
blows to the back of the skull. The powerful blows are delivered through
the use of a 2x4 board.
Each one falls instantly after one blow from the board, and are rendered
unconscious. Unconscious is exactly the best scenario when one is about
to be decapitated alive.
At the videos ending a message was displayed:
“****ing vulgar cartel, they only kill people to heat things up, they
don't have balls to confront those who are in this matter.
The one who gave them the power”
If in fact the executed are the family of El Diablo, Tamaulipas will
truly become hell with the devil on a mission of vengeance.
