My name is Poncho of the 12th. This happened to me because I believed that the organization The Hand with Eyes was disbanded and I wanted to work on my own. We assure you, the plaza continues to be guarded. Attention Attorney General- we want back the $400,000 dollars that you were given and the 8 cocaine bricks that you stole. Sincerely, The Hand With Eyes

Elements of the Municipal Police decided to hang a tarp to prevent more people from witnessing the macabre scene.  Meanwhile, police closed the road to facilitate the work of the investigating officers and to remove the corpse.

After several hours of investigating, the authorities released that the executed had been identified as Antonio Sanchez, alias El Tono, who was known to sell drugs.

For its part, the Attorney General of the State of Mexico quickly gave a statement regarding the gruesome discovery, indicating that Oscar Osvaldo Garcia Montoya, aka The Compayito, leader of The Hand with Eyes, who has been recently arrested, had confessed that he had ordered the execution of man.
