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.

Re: Mexico Cartel/Group Leaders List Updated 7/2020 (WIP)

MX
Nice list, jmulligan13.

For Los Chachos, make sure to add Dionisio Román García Sánchez AKA El Chacho, who headed the group since the 1980s until he was killed in 2002.

Edgar Valdez Villarreal AKA La Barbie was an early member of Los Chachos too. Other prominent members include Juvenal Sanchez Torres AKA El Juve, Marcelo Villarreal Treviño AKA El Marce, Jorge Flores Galvan AKA El Piloto, Fernando Moreno AKA El Matón, Hugo Moreno AKA El Hugo, Juan Manuel Ortiz AKA El Pinto, Gerardo de Jesus Martinez Morado, Jesús Sarmiento Reyes, Víctor Manuel González Martínez, Raúl Emmanuel Cárdenas Castillo (also known by his first name Alejandro), José Angel Fernández Manríquez, among others. Last time I checked all of them were arrested and/or killed. I've found these in print archives in Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey. I'm still searching for a live pic of El Chacho but I know it's there.

As far as founders of Los Zetas, if you're adding Zeferino Pena Cuellar AKA Don Zefe, you would technically have to add Gilberto Garcia Mena AKA El June as well. Both of them had Z-1 and Z-3 as bodyguards in Miguel Aleman, and it was actually El June's attorney who came up with the idea of hiring ex-military. El June could easily go in the Gulf Cartel as well.

Right before Osiel Cardenas Guillen's ascension there were other drug traffickers who were active, including Hugo Baldomero Medina Garza AKA El Senor de los Trailers, Adan Medrano Rodriguez AKA El Licenciado, among others. Some went to work under him, like El Licenciado, but others didn't like Medina Garza.

For Los Ciclones, you'll find plenty of claves (code names) of their members/leaders if you look in our forum's search bar.

Re: Mexico Cartel/Group Leaders List Updated 7/2020 (WIP)

You may also want to update the notes on the Nueva Plaza cartel in GDL.

Erick Valencia ('El 85') is not a member, he was only invited after his release, but chose to stick with his family.

May also worth mentioning...

- Cesar Morfin Morfin ('El Primito') is the "El 300" from Los Metros, who is currently leading from his home-base of Camargo.

- Juan “El Huevo” Gerardo Trevino-Chavez is not imprisoned and is the current supreme leader of CDN and his hit-squad ('35-Z')

- Luis “Z-12” Reyes-Enriquez ('El Rex') was not technically a member of Zetas Viejo, he was the #2 guy for "Grupo Bravo", which is now essentially defunct/eliminated.

- Martín Rodriguez Barbosa ('El Cadete') is a current high level commandante for CDN and helps "El Tory" take care of Nuevo Laredo, along with Ciudad Victoria.

- Juan Daniel Velazquez Caballero ('El 52' or 'El Talibancillo') is more than likely the current leader of Los Talibanes. He was arrested in 2015 but for all we know, may have been quietly released. He is the younger brother of Iván ('El Taliban') Velazquez-Caballero.

- Oscar Osvaldo Garcia Montoya ('El Compayito') was the creator and leader of Los Manos con Ojos, until his arrest in 2011. I am not sure if he/they are even worth mentioning, as they do not appear to be active currently in CDMX. I will say however, they did have one manta mentioning their presence in Puebla during 2019.

- Juan "El Abuelo” José Farías Álvarez  is absolutely not a member of Los Valencia. He broke off long ago and is fighting them (CJNG/Cuinis) on multiple fronts in Michoacan. If anything, he has own organization but more than likely tied with La Nueva Familia Michoacana.

- Speaking of which, Johnny "El Pescado" Hurtado-Olascoaga and his brother José Alfredo Hurtado Olascoaga are the current leaders of La Nueva Familia Michoacana.

*whew*

Always glad to help and I suggest you keep it going, my friend!

With El Huevo of CDN, I take it this wasnt correct that he was arrested last year? Or was he released?

Anytime!

It was only assumed it was him, due to the massive unrest, but it was confirmed not to be. He is till one of the top targets in MX.



I will say however, it is possible he actually was arrested and then "quietly let go", after they realized who it was (and possible pay-off)...

M-70 is absolutely alive and I wouldn't be shocked if he was secretly released from prison as he is related to the governer of Tamps. The confusion is because He faked his death when he was beefing with Pelochas but was then captured. While in hiding He was said to be in Nuevo Leon under the protection of Cabeza de Vaca.
