US deports former Mexican officer considered key suspect in Ayotzinapa case

Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua — The National Institute of Migration (INM) has reported on the arrest of Alejandro “T” who was wanted by Interpol and the FGR for his involvement in the Ayotzinapa case.

According to the Ministry of the Interior of Mexico, Alejandro “T” was deported from the U.S. and returned to Mexico Wednesday after being arrested by US authorities in December.

He was returned to Mexico after being “seized on December 20, 2022 by the CBP when he entered the United States irregularly.” It was later determined that he did not meet the requirements to be granted asylum.

Alejandro “T” is considered a key suspect in the Ayotzinapa case since he was a police supervisor in Iguala, Guerrero, when the 43 students went missing in September of 2014.

The National Institute of Migration (INM) says that at noon on January 18, he was handed over to INM Federal Agents at the San Jerónimo-Santa Teresa international crossing in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua. He is being charged with organized crime and kidnapping related to the Ayotzinapa case. He has had an outstanding arrest warrant since 2015.
