Patricia González Rodríguez, state Attorney General, said investigators believe active duty police officers were complicit in the operation which mistakenly killed fifteen high school students last month. This information comes after the arrest of Aldo Fabio Hernández Lozano, alias "el 18," a police officer from 2000-2008. Mr. Hernández received about $150 per week from the street gang known as "La Linea," to act as an assassin, according to the attorney general's office. He was released from active duty in October 2008 when he failed a reliability test administered by the police department. After his arrest he confessed his participation in the massacre, and apparently indicated there were numerous active duty police that night who conspired to make sure police were absent from the vicinity of the neighborhood in which the killings took place. Police are still hunting for eleven suspected accomplices to the murders.
