High-Level Federal Police Officer Murdered in Mexican Gulf State

VERACRUZ, Mexico – A high-level Federal Police officer was found murdered over the weekend in the Mexican Gulf state of Veracruz, officials said.

Andres Izquierdo Velazquez, who served as inspector general in the Federal Police’s legal affairs department in the western state of Jalisco, was apparently tortured and then killed execution-style.

Izquierdo’s body was found Sunday on the side of the La Tinaja-Cosoleacaque federal highway in the southern part of Veracruz, a state on the Gulf of Mexico.

The high-level Federal Police officer’s hands and feet were bound and his killers left a message accusing him of helping the Jalisco Nueva Generacion drug cartel enter Veracruz.

Izquierdo went to Veracruz to visit a relative, investigators said.

In June 2017, Federal Police commander Juan Camilo Castagne and one of the law enforcement agency’s inspector generals were gunned down in Veracruz.

The two officers were shot several times by gunmen while dining at a restaurant in Ciudad Cardel, a district in the city of La Antigua.

Veracruz has been plagued by a wave of drug-related violence over the past decade.
