As of October 2007 no one had been brought to trial. However, it was learned that members of Tijuana cartel (Francisco Javier Arellano Félix and Arturo Villarreal Heredia), confessed in the United States to having been involved in a number of murders.

On August 15, 2004 the Mexican Attorney General’s Office brought the case to federal jurisdiction.

The drug traffickers belonging to the Arellanos’ cartel were said to have been upset by a published report by Ortiz in which he identified 71 members of that criminal organization.
