'El Hitler', former bodyguard of Ramón Arellano Félix, commits suicide in Sinaloa prison

MX
This post was updated on .


Rito Quintero Hernández ('El Hitler'), former bodyguard of Tijuana Cartel kingpin Ramón Arellano Félix, was found dead in Centro Penitenciario El Castillo, a prison in southern Mazatlán, Sinaloa. He committed suicide by hanging.

'El Hilter' was born on May 9, 1958 and had his official address in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. He is sometimes referred to as José Romualdo Quintero Carrizosa. He was part of the Tijuana Cartel since the 1990s. He was a member of the security team of Ramón Arellano Félix. Ramón was killed by state police officers on February 2002 in Mazatlán. 'El Hitler' had a brother, Efraín Quintero, who died along with Ramón.

The 62-year-old 'El Hitler' was identified by authorities as being responsible for killing Sinaloa police officers. He had just been arrested on January 6, 2020 for intentional homicide charges. His new homicide charge after his re-arrest included premeditation. 'El Hitler' had already served a previous sentence in a penitentiary in Tecate, Baja California. His homicide charges were for two cases: one involving the murder of two Sinaloa police officers in Cosalá and another for the mass murder of 12 people in the Limoncito de los Ayala, both committed in 2001. In this second incident, 'El Hitler' and other members of the Tijuana Cartel were looking to kill Sinaloa Cartel members Manuel ("El Ondeado") and Javier Torres Félix ("El JT"). After failing to locate them, they killed twelve people. Authorities stated the massacre was carried out due to a drug dispute between both cartels.

According to an official report, the body was found in a bathroom of the carpentry area. Investigators stated that he hanged himself using a red and black rope. At the time of death he wore a white polo shirt, gray pants and white sneakers. He hung himself on the latticework on the bathroom wall.

The inmate who found 'El Hitler' hanging in the bathroom of the carpentry workshop mentioned that at approximately 11:00 a.m. he went to the bathroom but the door was closed. He returned 15 minutes later but the door remained closed. Since there is no ceiling in the bathroom, he looked out from the top and discovered his body. Authorities were called to the scene and analyzed the body before removing it.

A picture of him when he was arrested about two weeks ago. I'm not entirely sure if that's him.

Quite the ugly end, but this is the life of a killer thirty years removed from his prime, and the glory days of Arellano Felix infiltration of Tijuana.  That 2001 incident is well known, that ranch where 6-1's people were looking for JT and killed a whole family.

I had never heard about him or his brother.

Turns out both were involved in the massacre at Limoncito.

Apparently several family members of El Hitler were involved in the Limoncito massacre. Among them were his siblings Efrain (pictured) and Juan Edgardo (pictured), as well as his cousins Feliciano (pictured), Jorge Luis Carrizosa Quintero (pictured), and Feliciano Quintero Ortiz. See source here.

El Hitler is clearly a notable figure and was part of a clan that may have been important in the Tijuana Cartel's expansionist goals in Sinaloa during the early 2000s.









Below is a picture of the day when Ramón Arellano Félix was killed. He is the guy wearing white shorts. Efrain (El Hitler's cousin) is right next to him.

That’s what real shootout victims look like. No bodies lying straight in ground with guns in hand.

It was lino portillo from badiraguato  leading that cell. he was playing both sides getting paid 10 big ones a week from benjamin too hunt down all Sinaloa leaders. the big payload jackpot  was chapo .who knows how much mayo was paying him for tiling them off before they could reach anybody .they had too eliminate evrybody including children too not get recognized then he would not be able to charge his big payola with mayo .but JT was the target he worked with cochiloco Benjamin also paid big bucks too the Cali cartel too eliminate him .

That cell was called los cachanillas they handled all of AFO 's manhunts in Guadalajara ,Sinaloa  and DF I read somewhere that they carried up too 2 million in cash too flip people ? Just imagine mayo had too match that or Chapo did but both cartels where getting played by getting rich quick officials with badges that's why both failed attempts flopped  in airport and disco la Christine people playing both sides.that story about David Baron sounds too Hollywood. that  he pulled out his gun and fired back  that can be very true .that he became jujitsu blackbelt overnight ?I highly doubt that .

All of Benjamin's people had official state police badges so they where able to carry 9mm with 2 cartridges anywhere in Mexico  without question .plus his sucurity team only aimed for the forehead .
