Cancun Police Chief Interrogated in Mexico City

Yesterday, federal authorities detained Cancun police chief Francisco Velasco Delgado and brought him to Mexico City. Velasco Delgado was questioned about the torturing and killing of Mauro Enrique Tello, a retired army brigadier general, one other member of the military, and a civilian. It is still unclear whether Velasco Delgado is considered a suspect. Tello retired at the beginning of 2009 and began consulting the mayor in public security matters in Cancun.
