The man who was found shot to death inside a compact car a few meters from ejido El Ranchito, located south of the capital, was the nephew of the former leader of the Sinaloa cartel imprisoned in the United States, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, El Chapo.
The victim was identified by relatives as Enrique Homero Guzman Rocha, brother of Juan Guzman Rocha, alias El Juancho, who was assassinated by order of Chapo himself in 2011, along with Jose Miguel Bastidas, alias El Güero Bastidas.
The body of Enrique Homero was found in the driver's seat of a red Toyota Corolla, model 2010, which was in a gap located about 300 meters from El Ranchito.
It was at 5 in the morning when the authorities received a call that the body of a person was at the indicated point. Elements of the Municipal Police arrived and found a lifeless body, with shots from a firearm, lying face down on the driver's seat of a vehicle.
Enrique Homero had multiple bullet wounds to the back, extremities and skull.
In 2011, as Damaso Lopez Nuñez, friend of Chapo, would recap in federal court in New York in January 2019, Guzman Loera ordered the killing of his own nephew, considering that he was betraying him, like El Güero Bastidas. Their bodies were found with traces of torture in a building belonging to the Aguaruto syndicate. The way in which they were killed was reported by El Licenciado before the jury that sentenced El Chapo to life in prison.
