by Borderland Beat Reporter Buggs

“This one hit hard, don’t ask me why, it just did. Today I am writing this the day they found the body of the Panista Mayor of Santiago, Nuevo Leon, Edelmiro Cavazos Leal, who had been abducted two days ago by an armed commando.

U.S. educated Cavazos Leal, 38, and father of three children was abducted Sunday night from his residence in the Division of Cieneguillas. Alejandro Garza Garza, the Nuevo León state attorney, said Monday that the mayor was abducted by a commando wearing fake uniforms of the federal police of the attorney general (PGR).
Medina said this week that Cavazos, who took office last year, was probably targeted for his efforts to clean up Santiago’s corrupt police force, part of a nationwide effort to curb endemic police graft.
