6 arrested in killing of filmmaker's father, brother

09 November 2015, 18:55

Ciudad Victoria — Police have detained six people in northern Mexico in connection with the killing of the father and brother of movie director Alejandro Monteverde.

Federal police chief Francisco Galindo said Sunday the arrests were made the previous day during an operation in the south of Tamaulipas state.

He said the suspects were holding six Central American migrants hostage at the time of their arrest and their gang has been linked to 20 cases of kidnapping or homicide. The gang operated in southern Tamaulipas and Veracruz state, an area controlled by the Gulf Cartel.

The bodies of Juan Manuel Gomez Fernandez and Juan Manuel Gomez Monteverde — the father and brother of the Mexican movie director — were found Sepember 19 in Pueblo Viejo in northern Veracruz. The men had been reported missing September 4.

Monteverde is married to actress and former Miss USA Ali Landry.
