This most recent violence has become a major international incident. 

The letter claims to be written by the Scorpion faction of the powerful Gulf Cartel that controls Tamaulipas. 

The city of Matamoros is rife with cartel violence. And the Gulf Cartel is by far the largest. It has infiltrated nearly all aspects of life in the area.
