Later, prosecution experts rushed to the General Hospital of Cuernavaca, “José G. Parres”, for the removal of the body of Fernando Tavira Marquina, 40, who was a victim of an assault on the street Tepetates,located in the center part of Cuernavaca, who showed several signs of wounds from a sharp-edged weapon to the abdomen.
In the center part of Cuernavaca and among dozens of pedestrians, The Salvadorean, José Mauricio Bonilla Siciliano, 41, an alleged assassin for hire and member of the “Mara Salvatrucha”gang, fatally stabbed Fernando Tavira, who was walking with his family, in the neck and abdomen approximately 8 times.
Luckily, Cuernavaca municipal police managed to capture the ferocious murderer red handed while he was stabbing Fernando Tavira, before the fear and anger of dozens of witnesses, who later tried to lynch the ruthless guy. Police requested an ambulance who took the injured to the General Hospital, where the victim died hours later from the injuries.
The wife told police that she was unaware of the reason why the man attacked her husband. Moreover, it was learned that one of the two cell phones that the murderer was carrying received key messages which he received minutes before committing the crime, leading to the presumption that the murderer was an assassin.
José Mauricio claimed to be a native from Sonsonate, El Salvador, unemployed and lived in hotels located in the center of Cuernavaca. Among his belongings, besides the two phones, police found a yellow sideboard with the red words “Corrections Corporation of America” Agency #25818359 commissary #799092 issued to his name.
Minutes later in the same hospital César Soto Pérez, 20, died. He was a private security guard who on May 15 after an argument with two men who wanted to enter the compound where he worked at in the town of Ahuatepec, Cuernavaca, was shot twice.
