Baja & Border News Translations: Sewer Explosion; Body Found in Sewer

Sewer Explosion (Tijuana Press, 11/3/12 by Daniel Angel & Leonardo Ortiz)

Tijuana, BC - A problem with the wiring in a Commission Federal de Electricidad (CFE) drainage system required the mobilization of firefighters and civil protection in the Calle Misión de San Diego River area. According to merchants in the area, it was about eleven in the morning when they heard an explosion and minutes later, they were left without electric power.

A well-known restaurant located on the corner of Ninos Heroes Boulevard was evacuated. Juan Carlos Fuentes Rodríguez, a supervisor of firefighters said a report was received of an odor in the sewers and after a secondary review it was determined wiring was on fire.

He added that in the area there are also gas pipelines, so it was necessary to call the company so that maintains them to rule out the risk of an explosion. According to official information from the firefighters, three culverts expelled pressure at the site, albeit for only a short distance without causing any damage.

They pointed-out the cause of the cable fire might be a lack of maintenance, and conditions under the sewers, specifically moisture and vapors. Employees of the Commission Federal de Electricidad (CFE) continued working into the afternoon to recover electrical energy to merchants located close to San Diego Mission Road. http://www.tijuanapress.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=8053:explosion-en-zona-rio&catid=1:locales&Itemid=50

Body Found in Sewer (Tijuana Press, 11/4/12 by Nora Leticia Garcia)

Tijuana, BC - Three individuals are responsible for the murder of Manuel Gómez Esquer, committed on May 9, 2012. According to the Attorney General of Justice of the State PGJE, the motive was revenge. The detainees are identified as Juan Amilcar Velázquez Flores, alias "Juan Pistolas", 41, of Nayarit; Esteban Ibarra Martínez, 43, of Tijuana, and Miguel Angel Hernandez Almontes, alias "Miguelillo", 40, of Michoacan.

According to the State Department, the three subjects stated the reason for the murder was revenge, since he was a problem person and once beat up a friend of theirs. The official version indicated that the accused tricked the now deceased by telling him they had beer and drugs at a ranch located in Col. Alamar. Once taken there in a green Ford Bronco, the man was held then later beaten and kicked until lifeless.

The report by authorities stated Esteban and Miguel dragged the body to a canal at the Alamar River. The corpse was taken by storm water where it appeared several days later in a sewer along the expressway at the top of the Agencia Ford, where it had to be removed with machinery and fire support. The suspected murderers were made available to the appropriate authorities so that they can respond to the offense, which they are charged. http://www.tijuanapress.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=8058:cometieron-homicidio-por-venganza-pgje&catid=1:locales&Itemid=50
