According to the prosecutor, the two people arrested are the only ones who participated in the execution and then fled in a vehicle that they kept in a property near where the murder took place. The second detainee was identified as Ernesto Amaro.

P., 30 years old, originally from the State of Mexico and with a criminal record in other states.
