Severed Head Found – Rolando Armando Flores Villegas Decapitated

Posted on October 12th, 2010 in Mexico by lalate

FALCON LAKE, TX (LALATE) – A severed head was delivered in the David Hartley matter today; Rolando Armando Flores Villegas has been decapitated.

Rolando Armando Flores Villegas (aka Armando Flores Rolando Villegas or Commander Rolando Flores) was a Mexican officer, head of the region’s investigators in the border city of Ciudad Miguel Aleman. On October 8, LALATE reported that Armando Flores Rolando Villegas claimed he had heard no gunfire during the alleged attack against Hartley. Flores was the commander of the Tamaulipas state effort to find David’s body.

Zapata County’s sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez had told U.S. news at the time that he wanted Mexican pirates to turn over Hartley’s body. Instead, they are suspects in a delivered severed head today. “What I’ve told [the pirates] is, ‘I need a body. Give me a body, guys, and everything will go away. Give a body guys and the news media will go away’” Gonalez said.

Ruben Rios, spokesman for the Tamaulipas state prosecutor’s office in Mexico, is discounting the decapitation, calling it unrelated to Hartley’s case. In fact, Rios at first wouldn’t admit it happened. “We have nothing official. We have not heard any report about one of our investigators being killed. We have over 1,000 investigators working for the state.”

Rep. Aaron Peña confirmed the news today on Twitter but would not state the suspect. The head was delivered in a suitcase to the Mexican military today.

The Mexican drug cartels are as barbaric as the Taliban. What is the answer here?

Mexican drug cartels are like a malignant cancer that keeps on spreading. Mexico has spent billions of dollars on its drug war to combat the power and influence of the cartels, but when you look at the statistics it seems as if little progress has been made. Considering the dramatic impact cartels have on the United Sates, America should consider if securing our border is as important to our national security as is the war we are fighting in Afghanistan.

Mexico’s war on drugs has been ongoing since 2006, but the problem keeps getting bigger each year. So does the body count! Since Mexican President Felipe Calderon launched his campaign to crackdown on the drug cartels, nearly 28,000 people have been killed. Here is the breakdown according to Wikipedia sources:

- 62 killed in 2006

- 2837 killed in 2007

- 6844 killed in 2008

- 9635 killed in 2009

- 8152 killed in 2010

- Total killed: 27,530 (December 2006–September 2010)

That is a staggering number, yet it has received very little mainstream media attention. Compare that to the war in Afghanistan which has cost a little over 1100 American lives (and 4400 lives in the Iraq war). To make matters more concerning, Mexico’s Intelligence agency director, Guillermo Valdes, claims that some 84,000 weapons and $411 million U.S. dollars have been confiscated in the same time frame.

Most gangs in Texas call Houston region home
Intelligence report puts members in the area at more than 10,000

By DANE SCHILLER
HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Oct. 10, 2010, 4:24PM

Violent gangs and drug traffickers in the Houston area are growing stronger and more international, spreading into the suburbs as they bulk up on newfound connections with Mexico's lucrative and brazen organized crime syndicates.

The region is home to far more gang members than anywhere in Texas, according to the National Gang Threat Assessment.

As of this year, there were 225 documented gangs roaming the area, according to intelligence reports, the biggest being the "Houstones," with at least 2,233 members that have been confirmed by police.

Their soldiers alone equate to about 43 percent of the number of Houston police officers.

"Due to their sheer numbers, they (gangs) have a propensity to create a large number and wide variety of criminal acts," according to a report reviewed by the Houston Chronicle and compiled by the Houston High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, a coalition of law-enforcement agencies that stretches from here to the coastal counties, an area that includes 6 million people.
