Members of the Gulf Cartel in Matamoros interrogates an alleged group of kidnappers and extortionist who will kill their victims to leave no evidence. They were at the end killed with a shot in the head.

On a video uploaded to several social network sites specialized on warning people of danger in Tamaulipas, armed men can be seen in military uniforms questioning six alleged kidnappers who are tied and blindfolded.

The video begins with the image of a large narco banner ensuring that the  "Old School CDG" is not involved in any of all the robberies, kidnappings and extortion's that have arisen lately in this plaza.

"We will not tolerate or allow such atrocities in our group," the statement said.

The six alleged kidnappers, who were recorded kneeling with a blindfold and their hands tied behind their backs, responded to the interrogation of suspected members of the CDG.

They confess to have engaged in kidnapping and extortion and they identified the ringleader as "Pancho".



 
During the interrogation they described a kidnapping victim who was held captive for a million pesos in ransom, but they only received 40 thousand pesos.

One of the alleged kidnappers described that they killed their victim by placing a plastic bag over her head to suffocate her and then she was buried.

Each of the alleged kidnappers talk about their role in the group and why they were engaged in extortion. At the end of the video you can see the six bodies with bloodstains and apparently lifeless.

At the end of the video a text signed by "Gulf Cartel from H. Matamoros, Tamaulipas" can be seen.

"The Gulf Cartel Task Force in Matamoros, Tams has taken down a group of kidnappers and extortionists who had been operating in the area. Proving that our priority is first and foremost the welfare and safety of the people of Matamoros. We will not allow such actions, "concludes the text.

The "Old School CDG," which is also similar at Los Zetas group, are now saying that the organized crime groups are returning to their original business: drug trafficking, and to stop kidnapping, robbing and extorting money from the population.   

However, most of the fractions of both groups continue to commit such crimes and they refuse to stop other businesses such as the lucrative fuel theft.

In recent months, Ciudad Victoria and Matamoros averaged a total of 14 kidnappings per month according to figures from complaints filed with the State Office of Justice.
