La Huacana is federal jurisdiction. At 8AM this Sunday, José Manuel Mireles has yet to present his statement to the agency of the Federal Public Ministry, because he was being treated by medical experts in different disciplines.
The condition of the medical graduate of the Universidad Michoacana, is serious but stable, having suffered a head injury, fractured right jaw, chest trauma, multi-fractures on both sides, pulmonary contusion and blunt abdominal trauma.
At the hospital where José Manuel Mireles is hospitalized, which is guarded by dozens of federal police and soldiers, Efrain Mendoza Banuelos (at left), reported to be the pilot of the downed plane, was also hospitalized. Due to building unrest, Dr. Mireles, along with several of the autodefensa group, were transferred to Mexico City (DF) this morning. Though the face of a patient was covered, his trademark gray hair was peeking out from beneath the sheet drawn up to cover his face. He was transferred onto an heavily guarded ambulance and taken to a Federal Police facility. A large heavily armed federal police convoy escorted the ambulance.
He was then boarded a Federal Police Black Hawk helicopter for the 186 mile flight to Mexico City. Unlike his initial transfer yesterday to Starr Hospital in Morelia, the exact location and name of the hospital in Mexico City was not revealed.
The federal government appears to hold the safety of Mireles as the top priority, evident by his transfer out of Michoacán, where Caballeros Templarios have infiltrated every level of state government authority, leaving Mireles vulnerable to attack.
Meanwhile, in Parácuaro (see above when they took over the city from CT), a clash between the newly formed autodefensas and Caballeros Templarios commenced at 7AM as Templarios attempted to overtake the citizens and retake their previous stronghold.
Unconfirmed reports of several injured citizens, and a dozen dead Templarios resulted from the conflict.

Dr. Mireles and his group, were in route to Parácuaro when the plane he was in was involved in an accident. Their is no evidence at this time of sabotage, and the investigation is in the hands of the federal government PGR..
The Government of Michoacán, on their website, reports that Dr. (José) Manuel Mireles continues to be in stable condition.
In another reports, at a press conference, the Attorney General of the State, Marco Vinicio Aguilera Garibay, announced that the investigation into the plane accident of yesterday, will be turned over to the Federal PGR.
However, yesterday it was already announced that the PGR was taking over the investigation, why it was necessary to make the announcement is the guess of anyone, perhaps it was to issue a complaint regarding the lack of cooperation the state government claim to have confronted against a group of autodefenzas.
Aguilera claims that immediately upon learning of the plane accident, an investigation was initiated which included commanding the ministerial staff to mobilize to the hospital in Huacana, but were prevented by a self-defense.
Supposedly, the staff of the state prosecution, “in the spirit of not wanting a violent situation to evolve”, they withdrew, and were “prevented from undertaking their duties.
