José Angel Casarrubias Salgado in jail, out of jail, in jail

José Angel Casarrubias Salgado, the leader of the Guerreros Unidos gang that abducted and killed 43 college students on Sept 26, 2014, was arrested last week after six years on the run. 'El Mochomo' was released from the Altiplano federal prison in Almoloya de Juárez, México state, due to a lack of evidence. There are claims of recorded calls related to bribes. President López Obrador also asserted that corruption was a factor in his release.

Casarrubias was rearrested immediately after his release from prison.
It has long been claimed the students were kidnapped by corrupt municipal police, turned over to the Guerreros Unidos, killed and burned.
