    I posted this set and story back in 2011 (on another site) and thought I'd revisit it and post it up on DA. The link to the source of the text will be added in the last post of the sets.

    The massacre started late Saturday when approximately 30-50 men (sometimes reported as 200) travelling in twelve trucks attacked the small town of Caserio La Bomba about 275 miles north of the capital in the department of Petén. [The killing ended at approximately 3:30am early Sunday].

    There were twenty-seven [ommitted] victims at the massacre site, Los Cocos. Two of the victims were women and two were children. Another report says three teenagers were among the victims.

    The victims were bound and then beheaded.

    Los Cocos Ranch, La Libertad, , Petén, Guatemala, May 14-15, 2011.

    Set 1.

    "A 23-year old, Luis Armando Garcia, survived the attack by pretending that he was dead after he was stabbed. A pregnant woman was apparently released when her children began to cry. It's not clear what happened to her children. Another story said that one of the workers was spared and told to look after the children. None of the victims appear to have had ties to the cartels.

    The killers did not identify themselves, but they did say that they were looking for the owner of the ranch, Otto Salguero. When the workers said that they did not know where he was, the assailants began to kill them one by one.

    The group's leader was called "Kaibil" [common title for a Zeta leader] which leads one to believe that he might have been a member of Guatemala's elite/criminal/murderous special forces."

    "The killers left a note for Salguero written in blood using one of the victim's [severed] legs. Guatemalan authorities are now looking for Salguero. He owns four ranches and hundreds of cattle. While authorities believe that Salguero is connected to drug trafficking, the people around Los Cocos say that he is just a rancher. The killers also said that they would be back.

    Police believe the massacre was committed by the "Z-200," a group of Zetas. They think that the killing might be related to a land dispute or an act of revenge against Salguero. Threats against Salguero apparently began in early May because of "bad business.""

    "Police investigators say that the kidnapping of Luis Carlos Bardales Chacón was carried out by the Zetas May 10 in San Benito, Petén. The kidnappers were demanded Q450 thousand from the relatives of the victim.

    When his wife (Eunice Franco Keiry Salguero) and father (Luis Bardales Tobar) went to pay the ransom, they were abducted as well.

    Their mutilated bodies appeared last Friday night [May 13] between La Libertad and Sayaxché, Petén."

    "At the site of the bodies was found a note that read: "Otto Salguero I am coming for your head, Z 200." [This message was left at the site of the wife and father who after showing up to pay the ransom for Chacón were killed - May 13]

    Then on Saturday [May 14], members of the Z-200 searched Otto Salguero's property. At the time, Otto Salguero was apparently in Zacapa to attend his niece's funeral, Eunice Franco Keiry Salguero. When they did not find him, they began killing workers.

    This time the group left another message painted in blood: "Written in the blood from a victim's severed leg, in Spanish: "What's up, Otto Salguero, you bastard? We are going to find you and behead you, too. — Sincerely, Z200."

    The fate of Luis Carlos Bardales Chacón remains unknown."

    Do you really need to mark the bodies with evidence flags? Lol

    Impressive post! Great find! The closest thing I have seen to that is the Jim Jones Massacre!

    If I was Otto Salguero I'd sell everything I own and move to . . .Ecuador. No, someplace further away lol. Two of his ranches have been targets. They couldn't pay me enough to work at the other two.

    He could ambush them by hiring the local police or merc's or whoever was cheapest and lie in wait at one of the two ranches not yet rousted
