There are other messages between “Iroman”, “Thor” and “Superman”, the latter spoke on October 19, 2016 between four in the afternoon, where they refer that they speak to ministerial police at their base, with which they suspect that something is going. At another point, “Thor” indicates that they have passed a report on the next dispatch of 300 Federal Police agents to Mazatlán to “hunt down” a priority target.
On page 470 of the PDF, Superman and Thor discuss the signs that that person has within the Army. Thor claims to Superman that his man is retired, is güero (white) and that he is a friend of the Secretary of Defense. Superman doubts and asks if when Thor has traveled to Mexico he has met “The Godfather” that appears on television, because he is told that he is another.
So Thor insists that he can’t be retired because Hundred fires he is Secretary of Defense and he is the one with whom they have contact. But Superman insists that who he saw is a man who turns red when he is furious. In fact, Superman promises that he will murder people, because apparently they confuse someone they know as “El Tío” and that causes him a headache and even swears by his children, who are what he loves the most, that he was not found with The Godfather, that is, Cienfuegos.
To this, Thor replies that Superman could have met another person, but he is sure that his man is Cienfuegos.
Cienfuegos is free of any charge in Mexico .

Given the controversy generated by the general’s exoneration, this morning President Andrés Manuel López Obrador supported the FGR’s decision.
“It is a matter that basically corresponded to the prosecution to resolve, but in one way or another it has to do with the government that I represent, it is a decision that the prosecution makes but that the government that I represent second, that is, endorses, supports, because we argue that impunity must end, of course corruption, but also that there can be no reprisals, revenge, and that crimes cannot be invented … that no one should act in that way, whoever it is. The most important thing is truth and justice, ”said the president at the morning conference.
