Video footage has shown how Judge Vicente Bermudez Zacarias who presided over several high profile drug trafficking cases, especially involving various drug lords, including the infamously notorious ‘El Chapo’, was on Monday gunned down in broad day light in Mexico near his home while jogging.
More detailed reports from New York Daily News reveals that the judge was shot in the back of the head while he was exercising in Metepec road, about 43 miles from Mexico City. He was then rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Judge Vicente Bermudez Zacarias in March famously halted the extradition to the United States of Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman and also oversaw appeals from Trevino, who is accused of working with the brutal Zetas cartel. Both drug-lords El Chapo and Trevino are currently serving time in Feeral Prisons.
