An interrogation video of a suspected kidnapped member of a Mexican drug cartel in the state of Tamaulipas has surfaced on social media.

Members of the Zetas cartel faction known as the Old School Zetas posted the video on the victim’s Facebook page earlier this week.

The footage depicts masked cartel members accusing a woman, identified as Fabiola Serna, of being a member of the rival group Cartel Del Noreste

Gunmen recently kidnapped Serna in the city of Ciudad Victoria, the capital of Tamaulipas, according to Breitbart Texas.

During the video, one of the masked cartel members warned that they would spread the woman’s remains around the city.

Hours after the video surfaced, authorities discovered the body of Serna in the Almendros neighborhood. A message left on a poster warned against anyone working for the CDN.

The two groups have remained enthralled in a brutal turf war over the last year for control of drug trafficking routes to the U.S., which has resulted in an escalation of violence in Ciudad Victoria and also in the border city of Nuevo Laredo.

Although authorities have inflicted a series of major blows against both criminal organizations, violence has continued to intensify.

As JammedUp News reported, a shootout early in the week resulted in the death of a top figure within the Old School Zetas in the state of Nuevo Leon.

Javier “El Shaggy” Morales Valencia, a former Coahuila state police officer and one of the top leaders of the Old School Zetas, was killed in a fierce gunbattle with Mexican Marines early Monday morning in the municipality of Allende, just outside of Monterrey.

In recent weeks, authorities have successfully captured several top leaders of the CDN, including the group’s top boss, Juan Francisco “Kiko” Treviño, or “Comandante Kiko,” who was arrested by U.S. federal agents at a home just outside Houston, Texas.

Mexican authorities followed the arrest of Trevino with the capture of Gerardo Elias Matamoros Garza, identified as the boss of the CDN in Nuevo Leon, along with other top commanders operating in the state.
