Usually among experienced buyers, samples, and all that is not needed, referring to white, not anything else. Say it's a 10 kilo deal, just for example, the potential buyer would just break open a kilo at random, to inspect quality, rather then assume a previous sample was of preferred quality.
I find it somewhat improbable she was running, or influencing a cell in Acapulco, although I have seen mantas referencing Hector Beltran in recent years.
None of them ever worked under him it has always been an alliance of drug bosses. Azul and mayo never go for the spotlight or "head of the cartel" seeing as how being portrayed as such means you will eventually go down. Its like back when chapo was out he was considered by the media as the head of cds which we all knew wasnt true he was simply the head of his faction/family just like amado carrillo. Another guy thats moved massive weight back in the 80's and up until he died is baltazar diaz vega aka el balta who mentored the boss of bosses el padrino don miguel angel felix gallardo. Yet you dont hear about him because the guy was smart to stay away from the spotlight.
The asac for the feds in Culiacan started this story when Balto took over the Padrino's operations, but it was more complicated. Even though Balto was from a powerful family, he wasn't the Padrino's mentor, they were compadres, and it was a business matter when someone had to step in.
Later, Balto and family were screwed in a similar way, but el Padrino wasn't killed, sort of.
