The alleged hitman of the 35-Z group was tortured, interrogated, executed and hung on a bridge in Tuxpan, Veracruz by four hooded criminals wearing long guns thought to be from Grupo Sombra.


While silently imploring his aggressors to stop torturing him, Facundo Juárez Ortigoza , alias  “El Jarocho” , a hitman of the criminal group “35-Z” , is interrogated by several men belonging to the Grupo Sombra  cell.


The facts were recorded in a video, where the hitmen, who act as “defenders of the people,” threaten to clean up crime in Tuxpan, Veracruz.

Paradise is at risk. In less than two years, drug trafficking has placed Veracruz on the lists of the most dangerous states in Mexico . But, long investigations are not required to conclude who have been the main actors in drug-related crimes and squabble disputes.

Formed in the first half of 2017, the Shadow Group arrived to stay in Veracruz. Established in municipalities such as  Tuxpan, Poza Rica, Coatzintla and Tihuatlán , drug traffickers threatened police and criminals alike:  “nobody can get into our territories, ” they said. The group  was integrated by members of the Gulf Cartel.

On August 8, 19 hanged and dismembered bodies were located in the streets of the municipality of Uruapan , sources from the Michoacán government reported.
