A known sex offender was killed by a gang to warn pedophilia rings
A gang of vigilantes has captured a notorious child abuser and “crucified” him on a road sign to send a warning out to pedophile rings.
The rapist was snatched from police custody before being killed, maimed and then strapped to a wooden post and hung from a huge road sign at a busy intersection.
His castrated, naked body was found with a sign around his neck that read:
“This happened to me for being a child rapist and it is going to happen to all the pedophiles, scandalmongers, traitors… Be aware that this is not a game.”
29-year-old Eduardo Cruz had been taken into police custody after being caught raping an 11-year-old boy.
Police were directed to a road junction in Contepec in southwestern Mexico the following day by an anonymous phone call.
They arrived to find the victim hanging naked from a traffic sign with his arms tied to a wooden pole and his penis cut off and stuffed in his mouth.
A cardboard sign with the chilling warning to other child abusers was reportedly fixed to his chest with two ice picks.
The gruesome warning signals a new development in a move to vigilantism from the drugs wars that have rocked Mexico for decades.
