The entire police department is accused of murder
The entire police department in Ocampo, a Mexican city, has been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the murder of a mayoral candidate in next month's election, the Washington Post reported. A 64-year-old candidate named Fernando ngeles Juarez was shot dead by an unidentified captive outside his house a few days ago. Following this incident, the federal police here arrested 27 police officers of the city and the entire department, including the local secretary of public security.
So that's why there was doubt on the department
The city's security secretary, Oscar González García, was first suspected in this case, but when federal police officers arrived to arrest him, local police stopped him from doing so. After this the police department of the city was also considered as the accused and the entire team of the federal police reached the city and arrested everyone. All the policemen were properly handcuffed and brought to the capital of the country and now they are being interrogated.
Murders continue before elections
Elections for the post of president, parliamentarian and mayor in Mexico are due on July 1 next month. Meanwhile, the process of killings continues here and so far more than 100 leaders have been murdered. While Angels is the third leader to be assassinated in the state of Michoacan in the past week. He was a successful businessman of this area who was now taking interest in politics as well. That is why Angels, who was ready to contest as an independent candidate, was later made its candidate by Democrat Revolution, a major political party in Mexico.
