A faction of the Los Zetas cartel used the remains of their victims to send a message to police and their rivals in a suburb of Monterrey, in the state of Nuevo Leon. Cartel members covered the bodies in black trash bags and left them in the bed of a pickup drug with Texas license plates.

The case started when Mexican police responded to a call of an abandoned SUV on a highway in the suburb of Escobedo.

When authorities arrived, they found four bodies covered in plastic bags and a poster board with a message signed by the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of the Los Zetas cartel.

Cartel operatives wrapped the bodies in black trash bags and left them in the bed of a pickup with Texas license places.

Rival groups of the Los Zetas cartel have been fighting over profitable drug distribution and trafficking routes.

The fighting has resulted in an increase in violence where abductions, shootouts, and bloody murders have become common.

The battle between the CDN and their rivals, the Vieja Escuela (Old School Zetas), has occurred in multiple cities across Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Veracruz, and Nuevo Leon.

According to Breitbart Texas, preliminary information indicates that the CDN used a white Nissan Titan with Texas license plates to transport the bodies.

An expletive-filled cartel message claims that the four victims were members of the Los Zetas Old School and warned the CDN would continue targeting rivals

The SUV has not been reported stolen in Mexico. In the bed of the vehicle, the gunmen left the four bodies and used an ice pick to stab the poster into one of the victims’ bodies.

The expletive-filled message stated that the four victims are part of the Old School Zetas and that the CDN will continue to hunt their rivals.

Cartel violence remains in Nuevo Leon despite the efforts by state authorities claiming that the area is safe and cartel violence has declined.
