“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat

A video of two men being decapitated by members of the Grupo Escorpión, the armed wing of the Gulf Cartel in Matamoros, was broadcast on social networks.

In this recording of about seven minutes you can see that they are handcuffed face down on the ground. One of them begins to cry for mercy when they are cutting off both legs.

On one side is another man who begins to cut off one of his legs with a machete.

Minutes go by and the moment arrives when they cut off the head with a machete and a sharp axe. The other body is inert due to the lack of blood from having both legs cut off. 

These two men, whose identities are unknown at this time, were kidnapped in Ciudad Mante Tamaulipas and could belong to the Cartel del Noreste (CDN) from Nuevo Laredo.
