Two Arrested in Connection with Murder of Mexican University Student

MEXICO CITY – Federal Police officers arrested two purported members of a Mexican kidnapping gang who are suspected of involvement in the abduction and murder of a university student, officials said.

The two were detained while riding a motorcycle on Mexico City’s south side, thanks to field work stemming from the investigation into a kidnapping in the capital, the National Security Commission said Friday.

Felix Fernando Gonzalez, 33, and Citlalli Guzman, 26, were arrested without a shot fired.

The two are alleged members of a gang that operated in southern Mexico City and are suspected of involvement in the kidnap-murder of a female student at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, or UNAM.

In the operation, the police seized a 9mm handgun, ammunition, a penknife, cellular equipment, a motorcycle, and three plastic bags containing marijuana.

The arrest stems from an investigation launched in December that identified the modus operandi and area of operation of the gang allegedly behind the kidnap-murder of the university student.

The detainees also are suspected of involvement in three other kidnappings in 2007, including the abduction of another university student.
