Attack at Villa Onion
On 30 November 2019, an armed commando group violently stormed Villa Onion, sowing fear and terror among the families, who blamed the Northeast Cartel (CDN).
In a convoy of at least half a dozen trucks and vehicles, about 60 “uniformed” armed men carrying CDN initials (formerly the Los Zetas Gang) stormed the small and peaceful town with the intention of burning the mayor, along with the staff and people inside who carried out the measures.
Since then, the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE), in coordination with its federal counterpart, the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR), has conducted an investigation to clarify these facts, in order to arrest and punish those responsible with imprisonment.
As a result of investigations and intelligence work, the leader of the criminal group has been identified and located, who will be subject to trial.
