I had barely turned the corner on the Republic of Chile, after leaving Cuba 86, and I was about to reach Belisario Domínguez. Wore the dismembered bodies in black bags that in turn were in plastic boxes, accommodated in a “little devil”.
But wanting to get around the edge of a broken sidewalk, he pushed the wheelbarrow hard and threw the load, spreading the content in the pedestrian way a few meters from a policeman, as seen in videos broadcast of the moment. This operator of La Unión returned to Cuba 86 and communicated to Edgar Zúñiga to go pick up “the garbage”.
The Zúñiga He arrived and began to lift the bags, then the officers approached to try to help him, but they noticed that a very strong smell was emitted, difficult to breathe. Then they noticed that among the load they protruded extremities.

After investigating his data at the Prosecutor’s Office, it was learned that he was from the Tepito Union.
By November 4, family members identified the remains that belonged to the missing adolescents. Went up On November 5, the capital authorities arrested Baltazar “N”, after having tracked him down through video surveillance cameras in the area. I was in the Republic of Cuba 86, where they were found remains of blood and clothing belonging to Alan and Hector.

Press versions reported that the parents of the minors would have refused to pay the “floor fee”, charged by criminals to those who carry out informal commerce in the first square of the capital. Finally it took three months for new search warrants to be issued in the neighborhood de Cuba 86, apparently, because it continued to be used as a local narco office.
