Bienvenidos al taller mecánico (Welcome to the Mechanic's Workshop), 2015 sgraffito drawing on panel 11 x 14 inches
Four military officers were charged with the November 14, 2008 disappearance of brothers José Luis and Carlos Guzmán Zúñiga. Court documents reveal that General Felipe de Jesús Espitia, Commander of the Joint Operation Chihuahua confirmed that an elite group of soldiers called "The Mechanics" performed dirty work inside the barracks and then threw corpses in the streets. These same documents reveal that the torture chambers on the Juarez army base were called El Taller.
