“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat
In the early hours of this afternoon, the San Luis Potosi District Attorney’s Office became aware of and opened an investigation into the death of two people near the prison in the municipality of Tamazunchale, SLP.
According to preliminary reports, the two men were attacked shortly after they left the state prison.
It all began around 3:00 p.m., when the victims had barely taken their first steps towards freedom, they were surprised by armed men who were already waiting for them near the prison; after firing several shots at them, the perpetrators fled.
Both had just been released from prison, as they had been incarcerated for drug dealing; the cause of the attack is not known at this time.
The attack provoked an intense mobilization of police, ministerial, State Civil Guard, as well as municipal police. The experts from Servicios Periciales were present at the site of the attack and collected evidence to integrate the corresponding investigation file.
The Forensic Medical Service (SEMELE), which is part of the Scientific Deputy Prosecutor’s Office, went to the site of the incident and implemented the protocol for the removal of the bodies, in order to transfer them for the corresponding autopsies.
Likewise, agents of the Investigation Police (PDI) began with interviews and intelligence work to determine the way in which the events occurred and to find the alleged perpetrators.
The deceased, who were being held in the aforementioned social reinsertion center, have already been fully identified. Based on this information, some lines of investigation are already underway to clarify the facts and bring the alleged perpetrators to justice.
