Joel Rodriguez Barrero, “The Cuban”, was arrested several days ago in Morelos in the possession of weapons and drugs. He has been identified as responsible for the recent murder and dismemberment of four children.
The dismembered bodies of Brandon, Rembrant, Lenin and Brian, 14, 21, 20 and 17, respectively, were found on 8 March in the colony Pradera, Cuernavaca.
The youth had been kidnapped days earlier at the Alta Vista neighborhood, where they were seen manning small motorcycles.
Authorities say that the Cuban has been involved in other deaths and kidnappings linked to the movement of drugs, in recent months in Cuernavaca.
