Apatzingán, Michoacán, Mexico - The Mexican Federal Police announced the arrest of Jesús Sánchez Huerta, 47, aka, "Chucho el descuartizador or the Butcher" in the neighborhood of La Palmira. Huerta was wanted in connection with at least six beheadings, which the bodies of six headless male victims were tied with duct tape and left sitting down in white plastic chairs near the statue of General Lázaro Cárdenas del Río in Apatzingán.
Huerta worked for Los Caballeros Templarios Cartel as their main butcher and is credited for discarding multiple bodies without a trace, according to Federal Police. Authorities believe, Huerta murdered countless other victims from rival cartels.
