Venustiano Carranza, CDMX: Grieving Mother Ask For Justice Against La Unión de Tepito

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Video translation is as follows:

Male Newscaster: The mother of a young woman kidnapped, tortured, and murdered along with her cousin by one of the criminal groups operating in the Tepito area pleads with the authorities for justice to be done and the culprits arrested. The following story is by Paula Betancourt.

Remedios: My daughter was killed in broad daylight with many people around her. It was a Sunday, it was a day at the local plaza when there were more people out and about. And they were kidnapped between 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Everyone knows that when they close the entrances of the Calle 22 it’s because they are going to execute someone. And all the neighbors there are still afraid.

Paula Betancourt: Andrea Valerio Romero Espinoza, 22, and José Ernesto Gómez Espinoza, 28, were murdered on January 17. After their relatives, merchants in the Tepito market refused to pay the full amount of an extortion fee imposed by subjects who identified themselves as part of the La Union Tepito criminal group.

Remedios: 300 thousand pesos were required from each of my relatives. My nephew gave 100,000, and he doesn’t know how much more he gave because we no longer hold communication with each other. And my sister gave 50 thousand pesos. And they told them that they still have to give the rest that is required. And if not they were not going to kill me and my children.

Paula Betancourt: In December 2020 the threats to Remedios’ family began like this.

Remedios: They told us that they already had everyone located. They had pictures of her, her family, my family, the whole family. Because the same criminals seem to be those who are extorting, those who are extorting all the people there in the neighborhood. They told my sister that they were from the criminal group La Unión de Tepito.

Paula Betancourt: For not having the amount demanded by the criminals, they kidnapped her daughter and her nephew. According to the investigative folder opened in the homicide prosecutor’s office, those who were shot at a property on Jesús Carranza Street. Their bodies were dismembered and found on January 18. In a plastic bag on Gran Canal and Aluminio streets in the Venustiano Carranza neighborhood.

Remedios: With my daughter, who was a woman, they knew that she had a 3-month-old baby. They assaulted her a lot, they shot her 3 times. Both her and my nephew were badly beaten.

Paula Betancourt: After the double homicide, Remedios had to leave her job. And flee from her home with her 5-month-old granddaughter who was left orphaned. She became displaced by the violence caused by organized crime in Mexico City.

Remedios: In the end we live honestly and they don’t. Right now I am the one who is hiding and they continue to walk with impunity. No one has been arrested, no one has been caught, nor has any action been taken. That is why I am asking for a little justice to be done. On behalf of my daughter, and of all the people who have been murdered.
