MONTERREY, Nuevo Leon – The search for a kidnapping victim led authorities to the discovery of human ashes in what appears to be a cartel killing field in northern Nuevo Leon. The remains apparently belong to various victims incinerated in an area well-known for such violence.
The discovery took place last week as Nuevo Leon state police officers were searching for a kidnapping victim along a series of rural roads in Vallecillo, when they discovered a pile of ashes surrounded by bullet casings. Forensic investigators were called to the area to document the remains and determine if there is a way to identify the victims.
The location of the field is not far from another rural area where, only weeks ago, a team of 15 cartel gunmen wearing military-style uniforms ambushed a squad of Nuevo Leon Rural Police officers. That attack took place along the rural road known as “La Rana.” The region is commonly used by a faction of Los Zetas known as Northeastern Cartel (CDN).
The CDN was behind numerous kidnappings and executions surrounding Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. The most recent killing field was found less than 40 miles south of Nuevo Laredo. The CDN uses cloned Mexican Marine uniforms to kidnap and murder rivals. In one field along the border between Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, authorities identified six victims taken by fake Marines.
The CDN was able to use local news outlets to dupe the United Nations Human Rights Commission into believing that the Mexican military was responsible for the kidnappings.

The writers would face certain death at the hands of the various cartels that operate in those areas including the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas if a pseudonym were not used.
