On Saturday, authorities in Michoacán, Mexico, discovered 12 burned bodies on a stolen pickup truck
The 12 men who were executed by the Familia Michoacana were alleged members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, according to the Michoacán state prosecutor’s office
The heavily tattooed, charred bodies were located outside the entrance to a ranch in the Michoacán city of Huetamo
The Familia Michoacana claimed responsibility for attack by leaving behind a poster board with a Spanish written message for Alejandro ‘Chito Cano,’ who reportedly is head of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel’s operations in Michoacán.
The sign read: ‘Forgive me Chito Cano. I forgot your Mother’s Day gift but I send it to you here. ATTN: La Michoacana Familia.’
The Michoacán Secretariat of Public Security did not provide information on when the killings took place. The abandoned Nissan NP300 pickup truck had been reported stolen in September 2019 in Mexico City.
According to Michoacán Attorney General’s office, all of the bodies displayed signs of torture and said the incident could have been a vengeful act carried out by the Michoacana Familia.
‘In regards to the event’s modus operandi, it is not ruled out that the crime is due to a settling of accounts between members of organized crime due to drug trafficking,’ the state attorney general said in a statement.

Video footage leaked by the Jalisco New Generation Cartel last Thursday showed a purported member of the Familia Michoacana being interrogated by armed men. A second showed the moment the young man, who identified himself as ‘El Vago,’ was beheaded.
Separate video footage distributed across social media in early May captured members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel taunting what appeared to be the bodies of three of the 10 Familia Michoacana members they had allegedly killed.
The bodies were dragged on a dirt road and placed atop each other.
The Familia Michoacana exacted revenge after one of its members, who identified himself as ‘El Vago,’ appeared on two videos last week that showed him being interrogated and then beheaded by members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel
The feud between the Familia Michoacana and Jalisco New Generation Cartel goes back several years and intensified in February when Chito Cano’s henchmen appeared in a video threatening to wipe out the Familia Michoacana from existence in the State of Mexico.
Both groups have been locked in a turf war over the state of Michoacán, located off Mexico’s Pacific coast.
The Jalisco New Generation Cartel is led by Nemesio ‘El Mencho’ Oseguera Cervantes, a former ally of Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán. The Drug Enforcement Agency is offering a $10million reward for information leading to his arrest.
