Between Monday, February 7, and Wednesday, February 9, no less than 10 people were murdered in Colima. Their bodies appeared with gunshot wounds and abandoned in the streets. They had all been tortured. It was the signature of Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).
This week, the criminal organization also known as the cartel of the four letters plunged the state into a sinister carnival of tortured corpses and drug messages. Last Monday, the first homicides happened.
In the Lomas de Vista Hermosa neighborhood, in the capital of Colima, armed men fired shots at two vehicles, a Ford Explorer line van and a Toyota Tacoma. Authorities also reported the attack on the facade of a house.

According to information from local media, on a farm located in the Senderos del Carmen neighborhood, several armed individuals shot at a farm presumably owned by the former local PRI deputy, Aureliano Hernandez Alonso.
Later, in the Exhacienda del Carmen neighborhood, the body of a decapitated person wrapped in a bag was found. While in the La España neighborhood, a criminal group murdered a man who was walking near the intersection of José Antonio Díaz and Moctezuma streets.
In the Los Mezcalitos neighborhood, new signs of violence were detected, after men fired several bursts at a house. In the municipality of Coquimatlán, a bag with human remains and a blanket with a threatening message from organized crime were found.
A man was riddled with bullets
Until then, the authorities did not report on the motive for the crimes. The press reported these findings until Wednesday, when a man was riddled with bullets in the Patios de Ferrocarril neighborhood of the municipality of Colima.
Later, a 16-year-old student was killed while driving his vehicle on San Fernando Avenue. The events occurred when men on a motorcycle approached him and fired their weapons at close range.
