Female Captive #2: My name is Astrid Esmeralda Córdoba Alcalá. I’m an assassin for La Plaza. I receive orders from Francisco Javier Espinoza Camacho aka Fino and Antonio Castro Valenzuela aka El Castro. Karen Siclealy Ramírez López and Yan Carlos Medina Romero aka El 0-5 are the individuals who give out the orders whenever we have to go kill innocent civilians. This was done in order to draw government attention in the city of Guamas. I was paid 2000 to kill a driver from the transportation services Radio Taxis Los Tigres. My companion Parra and I were specifically told to execute these cab drivers. So, that with this we could make the government look bad. I have participated in various executions of innocent civilians All of the persons that have been injured or killed have been done on the orders of the La Plaza mob.
