Re: Cartel/Group Leaders List (WIP)

Nice try and welcome to BB!

I will only point out for now that Mario Cardenas Guillen was M1, and not Metro 1. He ran Grupo M/Los Marinos, which was a group in Matamoros.

Wow !  Congrats... lots of work here.  No wonder my mind spins in confusion...All the major and minor "known" players running Mexico into the ground and down, down deep into Hell.

Can anyone give some educated guesses about how many (1) originally came from the USA, (2) resided in the USA , (3) are fugitive in the USA, or (4) are not fugitives but embedded in the USA doing crimes.
I know it's a tall order, but any guesses are welcomed.
