Welcome from the borderland of far West Texas

Recent developments in México may soon lead to historical changes in that country and could have dire consequences for us as well.
New drug cartel aliances and more ruthless behavior have led to beheadings, executions, torture and extortion at an unprecedented level. Few of these events are being reported in English in the US. We provide English translations of Spanish articles appearing in Mexican newspapers and on Mexican news sites along with a few pertinent videos produced here in the US. Comments and suggestions are encouraged - and feel free to remain anonymous on the map at the bottom!

Three Men Riddled in Ojinaga

Three Men Riddled in Ojinaga

They lose their lives to hit men after intense chase.

This article appeared in El Ágora de Chihuahua on May 20, 2008. This translation is rendered as closely as possible to the original wording. The gory picture is a stock photo of two men in a car, not a truck and not the men in this incident. (See the orginal article here).

Ojinaga – May 20, 2008 - Authorities informed us that three men were assasinated by gunshot after an encounter with those chasing them on the city streets.

The acts occurred at 12 noon, when Aarón Alonso Flores Hernández, 16 years of age, Fernando Flores Solís, 25 years of age, and Alonso Flores Solís, 38 years of age were killed by gunfire.

The last two are brothers and the first, a minor, was Alonso's son (Comment by Frontera News: incorrect – Alonso was Aaron's uncle).

It seems the three men arrived on the streets of Ojinaga from Porvenir, a town located near Juárez City.

The victims fled in the direction of El Mulato, and although chased by the city police, succeded in fleeing without being detained.

The acts occurred on Tercera Street and Hombres Ilustres, in the Magisterial Zone, where the gunfight between the two groups was seen.

The bodies were picked up immediately by Red Cross paramedics. Two died at the hospital and one died in the ambulance during transport.

The deceased lived on 36th Street and Justo Sierra, in the Porfirio Ornelas Zone, and according to neighbors, had been only arrived in Ojinaga a short while ago.

At the scene of the acts were found a pistol and a dark colored pick up truck with Texas plates and bullet impacts in its body.

Sergio Urías, valet and driver for the Isste Clinic was injured in the scuffle, presenting with a bullet wound in the neck.

He was transferred immediately to Chihuahua City aboard an Isste Ambulance to be attended in the State Capitol.

La Frontera News Note: The Flores (Flores-Solis) family has lived for years in Van Horn, Texas with Alonzo fleeing to México to escape US justice (being wanted by the law in Texas) a few years back. Their parents and many relatives are still living there. Alonzo had been living in Lomas De Arena (see the Geographical Information post earlier) and had fled elsewhere for a while, reportedly to Ciudad Chihuahua, in order to avoid persecution by the cartel. He had apparently recently returned to Ojinaga thinking things had cooled off for him and his family.

Alonso Flores Solis was not deported to Mexico. He was a fugitive from U.S. Justice.He was wanted in Texas!

Thank you Anonymous; after some research we saw you were correct and made the changes. Their brother Juan Jr. (Juanito), who died a few years ago, was the one deported according to federal sources.

Wait...16 months after Alonzo,Fernando,and Aaron were put to rest...remain anonymous and vent in such ill manner.I reckon YOU got 'em balls as they did... It appears to me that you are in the same business...Live,Respect, and educate yourself...God Bless

I new Alonso more than I was willing to admit. We share something in common...But I don't defend what he did or didn't do in his life. But it's a high price to pay for the life style he live. None of us should be so judgemental of who he was in this life. Because remember we are not God to judge. Let him rest in peace alreadiy. After all he was human too. He will always be a part of me no matter what. And I will continue to defend who he was as a loving person. RIP Alonso you left something so precious in this life...

Yo creo que todos podemos cometer errores y para juzgar se necesita mas que suposiciones. Estos chavos escogieron vivir una vida de peligro, el jovencito decidio ir con ellos, y el destino se encargo del resto, cada quien escoge el camino a seguir, a ellos les toco morir tragicamente. Ese es un ejemplo para tomar medidas de prevencion con los jovenes. Anonimo, parece que quien no los deja descansar en paz eres tu, con tanta lamentacion. Que dios los tenga en su santa Gloria....

I know that they were part of my husbands family and knew they had helped his family cross the border years ago when his older brother was just 17 years old back in the 1970's its sad to know what happened to them I dont dare tell his family I believe my father in law would be heart broken he is very old and lost contact years ago with this family.
