Juan pointed out that United Warriors were looking for criminals from a rival cartel who owed it money. "But the rivals got mixed up with the students, who were protesting in Iguala," he said while assuring that 30 people picked randomly were also kidnapped and disappeared that day.
According to former President Enrique Peña Nieto's government (2012-2018), the crime was carried out by a group of Iguala's corrupt police officers.
"With the local police's help, United Warriors murdered and incinerated them in a Cocula landfill. Afterward, the group dumped their remains in a river," the former Mexican administration stated.
However, an investigation carried out by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) proved otherwise.
"State police coordinated with drug traffickers staged evidence at the Cocula dump for federal authorities to give quick results," the IACHR revealed.
