MEXICO CITY- Hipolito Mora, founder of one of the Autodefensas groups, assured that Luis Antonio Torres AKA EL America is behind the murders of the four catechists. Additionally, Hipolito Mora has adviced all families in La Rauna, Michoacan to purchase weapons to defend themselves since there is a lack of security in the region.

He assured that the four murdered catechists (Wilibaldo Hernandez, Jesus Ayala Aguilar, Adan Valencia, and Jesus Lopez), were all young countrymen that helped their parents in the agriculture and livestock sector.

Mora said that the entire town is certain that El Americano is responsible for the killings, but are afraid to speak since even the authorities are afraid of his group.

“This group has the authorities on their knees so much that even about a month ago, this group stole a patrol car from them in the Buenavista municipality… from Buenvista they brought the patrol car during night time hours to La Ruana that’s about 15 minutes away… they were shouting profanities to the police dispatch via the in-car-radio and there was no one that dared to stop them. It was between 15 to 20 young men and they’re the ones causing all the chaos.”

He added that although El Americano is no longer visible among the group due to the authorities looking for him and that other people are running his group.

Hipolito Mora also said that the residents in La Ruana are very content with the governor (Silvano Aureoles), because he’s carrying out projects for the towns; the citizens committee has met with him, but believes that this is useless because although they might receive resources to live better, financially, but that they’ll eventually get killed or kidnapped due to the insecurity.

Because of that, Hipolito Mora said “although it might sound bad, I recommend that all families in Michoacan purchase weapons to defend themselves, because we don’t have anyone to protect us.”
