Falcon Lake Murder: A message from the cartels

The other day when I released the post about the Subway's interview, someone mailed me a link to the Narco blog with the message, "It says here who killed David Hartley."  The link was the following:

For those of you who do not understand Spanish, there is a translate button on the  top left corner, but mainly what this link takes you to is a blogger who supposedly received an anonymous email from the Cartel del Golfo (CDG) and United Cartels (UC) on February 16, 2011.  In the email, the CDG and UC give a list of murders and a series of other bloody events.  On that list was no other than the murder of David Hartley.

The text translated by me reads as follow:

Juan Pedro and Jose-Manuel Zaldivar Farías, also known as "El 27" and "El 31", killed the American tourist David Hartley at Falcon Dam and the head of the PME (ministerial state police) group in Miguel Aleman, Tamaulipas, Juan Carlos Ballesteros who was beheaded and his head was sent in a briefcase to the premises of the Mexican army. 

 Naturally, even after reading this, I didn't believe it because it sounded to me like they were just regurgitating everything the American media had said.  Secondly, they provide no proof to link these suspects to the beheading other than fingerpointing, not to mention other points I brought up in a previous blog.  (Read my thoughts on this here and here.)

I still had to wonder if maybe I was being hard headed about this?  After all, El Blog del Narco does have a reputation for being able to communicate with the cartel and provide information that is not available to others, but it just seemed too childish a email to come from some big drug cartels.

However, had it not been for my friend Javiera, I would have never noticed one very big clue that only adds more to this mystery, and that big clue is: 

According to a number of news reports, the media, Sheriff Sigi, and Tiffany, it wasn't Juan Carlos Ballesteros who was beheaded, but Rolando Armando Flores Villegas!

So who's lying?!!! The CDG or everyone else?

Here's the problem:  Personally, I don't believe this is a real letter from the CDG, and if it is, they are just coming up with events to blame on the Zeta's.  They are, after all, feuding, and what a better way than to get people fired up by putting the blame on their enemy?

However, we don't even really know who it was that was beheaded!

The Mexican news is famous for showing us the gruesome details of a beheading like this, and if not them, surely there's a picture floating around the internet to prove this beheading, not that I want to see it for any other reason other than I want proof!

Secondly, what if they are giving the facts?  What if it was Juan Carlos Ballesteros who was beheaded and not Rolando Armando Flores Villegas? Why would no one speak up about it if that were the case? Not to mention that there is more reason to believe that Juan Carlos Ballesteros would be the one to have been decapitated and not Mr. Villegas, because it was Mr. Ballesteros and Sheriff Sigi who released that information to El Universal, and not the other way around!

To be honest, this only furthers my suspicions that Sheriff Sigi works for the CDG.  He was the first one to place the blame on the "Zetitas", and now the CDG is following in his footsteps by insisting that the beheading was a result of people investigating the David Hartley case, and this is only assuming that this email was really sent by someone who knows more about the background on David Hartley's disappearance.

Stay tuned...
