February 24, 2019 by Editorial

A brother of drug trafficker Dámaso López Núñez, El Lic , named Alfredo, was murdered on Sunday in front of the sidewalk located in the Quilá union.

The crime occurred at 5:40 p.m., but until now, more information about the crime is unknown.

Alfredo López Núñez, 52, lived in the area where the events occurred in the Los Girasoles neighborhood, where an armed group arrived aboard three units and shot him with heavy weapons.

According to testimonies, the brother of El Lic tried to flee towards the back of the house, but died in the backyard.

Dámaso López Núñez was sentenced to life imprisonment recently in the United States for drug trafficking and testified in a federal court in New York against his compadre Joaquín el Chapo Guzmán.

The lawyer met Guzmán Loera in 1999, when he worked as deputy director of security and custody in the Puente Grande penitentiary, Jalisco, where El Chapo fled in 2001, was later accused of corruption and resigned from office and later joined the Sinaloa Cartel.

He started working for El Chapo, getting houses and ranches to rent for two or three years. Later he dedicated himself to obtain information from public servants about operations against the Sinaloa Cartel and later to coordinate the communications between Guzmán Loera and the Colombians.

He became the financial operator of Guzmán Loera, who baptized his son Dámaso López Serrano, the Minilic .

López Núñez was detained on May 2, 2017 in an apartment in Colonia Anzures, Mexico City and later extradited to the United States, and his son, Minilic, was handed over to the DEA on July 25, 2017.

In the United States, another brother of the lawyer named Álvaro is also incarcerated , who was arrested on August 17 of the same year when he tried to enter Arizona, after the Federal District Attorney's Office in San Diego, California, accused him from the August 19, 2016, of conspiring to distribute drugs.
