Mexican authorities have detained Jose Guadalupe Reyes Rivera after conducting a raid in Tamaulipas, Mexico. The reputed Los Zetas operator accused of having planned and taken part in the 2010 San Fernando massacre, where Los Zetas executed 72 undocumented migrants.

The slaughter occurred in the village of El Huizachal, located in the municipality of San Fernando, Tamaulipas, Mexico. All 72 murdered—58 men and 14 women—were immigrants, mostly from Central and South America.

The Zetas shot the immigrants in the back of the head, execution style and left the bodies piled up together. One of only three survivors said the Zetas executed the innocent men and women after refusing to work for the cartel.

Mexican law enforcement officials are claiming Jose Guadalupe Reyes Rivera, aka “El Sasi”, helped plan, and took part in the horrific murders.

Police arrested Reyes Rivera in a mechanic’s garage in the city of Camino al Pueblo Colonia, located in the Tamaulipas capital of Ciudad Victoria.

The Zetas operator was transferred to Matamoros Maximum Security Prison.
