During the interrogation of captured Los Zetas Boss, Omar Trevino Morales, aka “Z-42”, the day after his March 4th arrest. Mexican officials say the powerful capo provided valuable information regarding a number of unsolved murders.

Coahuila State officials have disclosed that Trevino revealed the information during his questioning, which they say could help Mexican authorities “clear up” a number of narco-related homicides. Including the murder of Eduardo “Lalo” Moreira, son of former Governor Coahuila Humberto Moreira.

The Secretary of the State of Coahuila, Victor Zamora, made the announcement yesterday. The Coahuila State government have been seeking information from Treviño regarding numerous murders that have occurred throughout the region.

Zamora said in a statement, “the day after the capture of Z-42 by the Mexican Marines. (Trevino) provided helpful information to the Attorney General of the State that could assist several ongoing murder investigations.”

The government official added that the information derived from Trevino’s statements will evidently strengthen the State’s prosecution for the crimes, committed by the Zetas. Zamora could only provide minor details, not to impede the investigations. However, He did say the information given by Z-42 will cetainly help the investigation of the Moreira murder and additional killings as well.

Zamora revealed that interrogators touched on a number of deaths during the inquiry, including the 2011 massacre of 300 people in the city of Allende. However, the official didn’t say whether Treviño was forthcoming about the Allende mass murder, who they suspect planned the slaughter along with his brother, Z-40.

Z-42 took over leadership of Los Zetas after the 2013 arrest of his brother, Miguel Angel Trevino. Who assumed power just nine months after the Mexican Military killed the Zetas supreme commander Heriberto Lazcano, “The Lazca” in Sabinas, Coahuila during a gunbattle.

Law enforcement officials are currently investigating Omar Trevino for 661 murders.

In addition, the Zetas leader is wanted by the United States Government, who have issued a warrant for his extradition on drug trafficking charges.
