I am witness to the fact that on September 30, 1994, two days after Ruiz Massieu’s assasination, Raulito had slaughtered Manuel Muñoz in a house located in Paseo de la Reforma in Las Lomas. Moreover, Aguilar Lucero was drawing a map for me to be able to guess, to be able to arrive to the place where, after the assasination, Raúl and his accomplices had took the body to bury it. I just went and told them there were negative vibes. There are supernatural things, the grass does not smell to herb and everything is very misterious.
