The rest of the murders occurred in different events registered in municipalities such as Salamanca, Celaya, Irapuato and León.
In Salamanca, at 7:30 a.m., the body of a person was found in Colonia Las Roas, on the side of the road to Valle de Santiago.
In that same municipality, but in the downtown area and around 3:30 p.m., two men were executed in a paint shop.
In Celaya, the remains of a dismembered person were left inside black bags in the parking lot of the El Dorado market.
Another man, who was sitting on a bench, was killed by subjects on a motorcycle, in the same district.
While in Irapuato four corpses were thrown on farmland of communities Las Adjuntas and La Clavada.
In the city of León, in the El Retiro neighborhood, in the same municipality, three people were murdered in a beer business.
In the afternoon, a man was killed inside a mechanical workshop, in the same municipality.
And it was not only the murders, but narcomantas were also hung in various parts of the state, from organized crime groups
One of them next to the dismembered bodies of two people.
This figure of 32 killed in a single day, represents one of the most violent days in Guanajuato, stronghold of the Santa Rosa de Lima cartel, once led by José Antonio Yépez Ortiz “El Marro”.
This is only the third time in the year in which there have been more than three dozen homicides, two of them after the arrest on August 2 of “El Marro”, a huachicolero leader (fuel theft).
On July 1 there were 33 murders, then on September 27 there were 31 homicides and this October 5 32 cases were reported.
Despite the fact that “El Marro” is in custody, his successor “The blue”, it continues with a fierce fight with the Jalisco Nueva Generación cartel (CJNG), led by Nemesio Oseguera “El Mencho”, for control of the territory.
These confrontations between the CSRL and the CJNG have made Guanajuato the most violent state in Mexico.
