The Strategic Security Coordination confirmed that among the bodies found inside an abandoned vehicle at the entrance to Mazamitla last Thursday, were the two Santa María del Oro police officers deprived of their liberty on Friday, July 1.
Despite the fact that the State Prosecutor’s Office had already advanced that it could be them before the indications, such as “police” tactical uniforms located in the Nissan Versa model 2012, the coordination confirmed that the family had already made the official recognition of both victims.
The coordination also confirmed that there were two and not three bodies that were found inside the trunk of the car, as previously reported. Both police officers have already been handed over to their relatives so that they can say goodbye to them and bury them.
These are the brothers Alejandro and Ricardo Álvarez Govea, who were abducted on July 1 along with another officer on the Quitupán-Santa María del Oro highway, after a unit blocked their way and set fire to the patrol car in which they were traveling. .
The officer was confirmed as located the next day. Her captors released her without major damage, but it was not until the following Thursday that the bodies were found.
With them, there are at least 17 murdered policemen and agents in charge of security in Jalisco so far this year, without also counting the murder of an agent of the Public Ministry that occurred on March 9.
The last case was that of another police officer from Santa María del Oro who was on his day off when he was murdered on June 22. His body was found among the two victims found dead at kilometer 2,350 of the highway that goes from Santa María del Oro to La Aurora.
