The successor of "El Chapo": Dámaso López Núñez

Mica - Interesting read translated through Google.

The hot afternoon of February 4, 2017 runs in complete calm in Imala, a town near Culiacán, Sinaloa. The state is famous for being the cradle of some of the most fearsome and powerful drug traffickers in Mexico: Rafael Caro Quintero, Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo, Amado Carrillo Fuentes, Arturo Beltrán Leyva, Ismael Zambada García, and, of course, the best known of all : Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, aka El Chapo, leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, a criminal enterprise considered by the United States authorities as the "largest and most prolific drug trafficking organization in the world."

They are precisely their children Iván Archivaldo Guzmán Salazar, 36, and Jesus Alfredo, 30, better known in Sinaloa as Los Chapitos, Who travel in the armored van escorted by the convoy that bursts into the quiet of the small town popular for its hot springs and colonial architecture.

On January 19, Chapo was extradited to the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York, where he will be tried for the last 25 years of his criminal career. And now that its end is final, Ivan Archivaldo and Jesus Alfredo come to an encounter with Dámaso Lopez Núñez, alias the Licenciado, the right arm and man of greater confidence of his father.

 
The objective is to make the distribution of responsibilities, territory and property of the criminal empire of Guzman Loera, which is no small thing. In the court of New York they accuse to him to have personally accumulated at least 14 trillion dollars. A whopping even the most honorable families would dispute to death.

During the last 16 years, based on audacity, ingenuity, betrayal, violence and millionaire bribes, Joaquin the Chapo Guzmán managed to become the monarch of a kingdom that generates annually profits calculated by the department of American justice in trillions of dollars annual, similar To those of Google.

The children of Chapo do not go alone to meet. In the bullet-proof vehicle he travels with them Ismael Zambada García, aka May, The other head of the Sinaloa Cartel and compadre and accomplice of the Chapo for decades, who accompanies them to serve as an honor witness to the agreements reached by the children of his friend and Lopez Núñez as a gesture of loyalty and because he wants to avoid A confrontation between Chapitos and Licenciado. At age 68 and after decades of being almost untouchable, the Mayo learned to exercise the art of neutrality with the same grace with which a swan moves in the water: it does not want an internal war or want to be part of she.

The meeting place is not far from one of Zambada García's ranches, which is guarded by a large group of well-armed escorts, ready to defend him to death. In the city of Culiacán is vox populi that has an army of more than four hundred men.

When the convoy arrives at the agreed place, Dámaso López Núñez is not in the place. The Chapo's children do not understand what's happening. Suddenly, even in daylight, explosions begin everywhere. They are not fireworks, it is an ambush. The truck is under a lead storm. Thanks to the armor and the assassins to pay the May that repel the attack, this and the children of the Chapo manage to escape. In the place are the bodies of eight of the men of Zambada Garcia.

During the attack intelligence agencies of the United States government, which has intervened some communications in the area, could listen to the radio frequency of the state police in which an officer with nervous voice reported the confrontation between "chapitos" and "damasos" without No authority intervened, Even though the point was less than 20 minutes from Culiacan.

"No one suspected Dámaso because he was Chapad's compadre," said a family member of Guzmán Loera, who gave the details of the attack on condition that his name remain anonymous. He said that the offspring of the capo are regrouping in the mountains of Sinaloa to prepare a counterattack against the former man of trust of Guzman Loera for his betrayal and to dispute the throne of his father's criminal kingdom.


* * *
18 years ago, the power of the Licentiate within the Sinaloa Cartel and his betrayal were unthinkable.

In June of 1993 the Chapo was arrested by the government of Guatemala and surrendered to the one of Mexico, Who accused him of having participated in the assassination of Cardinal Juan Jesus Posadas Ocampo in May of that year at the international airport of Guadalajara, where Guzman Loera was supposed to have confronted the brothers Arellano Felix, then leaders of the Cartel de Tijuana, Staunch enemies of his after having murdered Armando Lopez, who was like a brother to him.

For almost three years Guzmán Loera was held in a maximum security prison in Almoloya de Juárez, State of Mexico. Thanks to his lawyers, in 1995, he managed to be transferred to Puente Grande jail, located a few minutes from Guadalajara, where his wife Alejandrina Salazar and his four children were living: César, Giselle, Ivan Archivaldo and Jesús Alfredo.

Desperate for the confinement, In 1998 El Chapo sent an emissary to the United States Embassy in Mexico to make contact with the DEA. In October of that year, Larry Villalobos, then Head of Intelligence of the DEA office in Mexico, and Joe Bond, supervisor of Operations of that agency, held a secret meeting with him in the medical care area of ​​the Puente Grande prison .

"I will not return here, I will kill myself or kill me before I surrender to the government," Guzman Loera told DEA agents with deep bitterness as he looked out the window longing for his freedom. He proposed to Villalobos and Bond to help the DEA to catch the Arellano Felix in exchange for not being extradited, or if so, to give him only five years in prison and then his freedom. El Chapo hated prison more than anything else, more than death. But he could not reach an agreement.

Inside the jail, the future for Guzman Loera was bleak, until in February of 1999 his luck turned a hundred and eighty degrees. A young former commander of the Judicial Police of Sinaloa arrived as the new deputy director of the prison: Dámaso López Núñez, whom they all called the Licenciado, who was then 33 years old.

López Nunez, born on February 22, 1966 in the Eldorado community in Culiacan, was a man who worked for the Sinaloa Cartel long ago. The police charge had been obtained thanks to recommendations from the Mayo, but until then it had not proved its worth. His father, Dámaso López García, was a member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), a political party that made him an Eldorado trustee in 2007.

After arriving in Puente Grande, accompanied by a team of collaborators who called themselves Sinaloas - composed by commanders and custodians - in a short time managed to make Chapo's stay in prison more bearable. With the complicity of the directors of the prison, Mario Marín, first, and Leonardo Beltrán Santana, later, as well as authorities of the Ministry of the Interior, Lopez Núñez became the genius of the wonderful lamp that fulfilled all the wishes of Chapo. His caprices were varied: he asked for cell phones, food from the best restaurants in Guadalajara, alcohol, drug, viagra and the entrance of musical groups.

Guzman Loera also asked for prostitutes to visit at all hours of the day, who spent long hours with him in his cell, which he did not know about locks. For that, Lopez Nunez ordered the detainees to be removed from the continuous cells and relocated to another location while the female visits lasted. The Licentiate acted as a dog that responded to the slightest signal of his master and thus was gaining the blind trust of Guzmán Loera. When the sex workers did not satisfy Chapo's appetite, López Nunez got him cooks, nurses and caretakers working in prison, who in exchange for money agreed to have relations with the prisoner.

Most of the time the deputy director complied with his master's wishes with the money sent by the cousin of Chapo, the drug trafficker Arturo Beltrán Leyva, who distributed among the prison staff and some inmates with the same naturality as who distributes candy in a children's party. But when money was not persuasive enough to enforce his master's wishes, Lopez Nunez resorted to terror. Manuel Garcia Sandoval, who at that time worked as an internal security officer in the area where the cell of Joaquín Guzmán Loera was located, witnessed.

The afternoon of October 8, 2000, a command arrived at his house located in El Salto, a town near the prison. He parked his vehicle in the garage, and two men approached the gate to ask if the vacant lot next to it was for sale. When he was responding, one of the men drew a gun.

"Do not move, you bastard!" He said as the other jumped the grate and hit him hard on the head, holding him by the collar and applying the Chinese key while the other also jumped.

The two forced him to his house. Garcia Sandoval shouted to his wife, who was in the kitchen. When she came to her husband's aid, one of the men grabbed her and tossed her to the floor, leaving her immobilized as two other men entered the house.

They struck the security officer on the ground with fists, feet, and objects. Mainly in the head and neck. It was three against one.

"You know what you did, you bastard!" A blow. "You know why!", Another one.

They repeated the routine several times. One of the attackers tried to break his right arm and leg. When he thought he had succeeded, he ordered the group to withdraw.

Terrified, his wife dragged him into the kitchen, fearing the attackers would return. He remained there until the Red Cross arrived, interned in the emergency room and then transferred to an ISSSTE hospital where they attend public service workers. Interned in the clinic with a dislocated neck, arms and legs ground to blows and the head on the point of bursting, García Sandoval remembered what he had done to receive the rage.

Four days before the beating he had to do surveillance in the module where the Chapo was. He was one of the few who had so far refused to enter the "union," as they pompously called the network of corrupt civil servants. As they passed by, two prisoners held out his hand to greet him.

"We are forbidden to greet the inmates by hand," he replied.

"What's wrong? Everything has changed, " One of the inmates complained.

"Not for me," Garcia Sandoval replied dryly.

For the Lord of the Three, as Guzman Loera also referred to in prison, Garcia Sandoval defied his authority. When Garcia was on duty, he was not allowed to bathe whenever he wanted, nor to meet with the inmates.

That same day it was up to García Sandoval to move the Chapo to another point in the prison. As they went through the corridors they ran into Miguel Ramírez González, from the same bedroom.

"How are you, sir? How do you see the officer here?" Ramirez Gonzalez al Chapo greeted.

"Good," answered Guzman Loera.

"Yes, it is the incorruptible," said Ramirez Gonzalez mockingly giving the guard a pat on the back.

The authors of the beating were the Sinaloas, under the orders of Dámaso Lopez Núñez. At the end of that month, the Licenciado resigned the position of deputy director, but continued visiting Guzmán Loera in the penitentiary. The last visit was made ten days before the escape.4

It was after his escape in January 2001 that Guzman Loera began to rewrite his story, and from a drug dealer in disgrace he became the most powerful boss of all time.
Dámaso López Núñez was pillar in the construction of his criminal empire.

* * *

"I first met Dámaso in 2003, but I had heard of him from a long time ago," he told the United States government, Vicente Zambada Niebla, alias Vicentillo, favorite son of Mayo, Who was arrested in Mexico in 2009 and extradited in 2010 to the North District Court in Chicago, Illinois. After years of participating in meetings of his father related to the drug business, Vicentillo gave details on the importance of Lopez Núñez in the growth of criminal organization.

When Guzmán Loera escaped from prison he was welcomed by the Mayo. Thus, the Sinaloa Cartel became a two-headed hydra: Guzmán Loera and Zambada García. The two masters of the vast realm of drugs.

Lopez Núñez began to coordinate operations for both, although its direct head was the Chapo. He negotiated with Colombian cocaine suppliers on behalf of the Sinaloa cartel for the supply to the United States. "Dámaso was responsible for coordinating with the Colombians to establish shipments through boats and submarines that brought from Colombia the drug and the boats that traveled from Mexico to take back the payments of the cocaine received," Vicentillo said.

The Licentiate was diligent and effective. In 2008, Zambada García and Guzmán Loera needed a cargo of 20 tons of pure cocaine for the American market. Lopez Nunez managed to get two large ships with hidden compartments and moved the drug through the Panama Canal to take it to Mexico.

When the shipment arrived near the coast of Sinaloa, it managed to send to the high seas vessels that distilled and discreetly discharged the white powder and transported it to a secluded location on the beaches of Sinaloa. The Mayo, El Chapo and a person known as Keta kept a portion of the cocaine in security houses in and around Culiacan, and the lawyer hid the rest in security houses in Eldorado. The operation was successful.

At other times, López Nunez managed to transport cocaine from Colombia to Mexico through fumigation planes that were able to transport up to half a ton of cocaine. To achieve these operations, the Licenciado established infrastructure in Guatemala, Belize and Honduras.

In addition to the support given to the Sinaloa Cartel in drug trafficking, Vicentillo said that Lopez Núñez was responsible for recruiting and organizing armies of assassins who fought to death with the enemies of the Sinaloa Cartel.

After the confessions of Vicentillo, In 2011 the Federal District Court of Eastern District of Virginia opened the first criminal case against the Licensee, and in 2013 the United States government publicly denounced Lopez Núñez as a "keystone" of the Sinaloa Cartel.6 Its power grew more and more With the consent and support of Guzmán Loera.

* * *

From being a simple planter of marijuana and poppy, one more in the Sinaloa sierra, Joaquin Guzman Loera managed to build his empire of drug trafficking thanks to his audacity, smell, a dose of luck and several of violence and corruption.

At the end of the seventies, when the Chapo was an operator of the Guadalajara cartel - which would later become the Sinaloa cartel - the masters and drug lords in the world were the Colombian cartels, In particular the Cartel de Medellín headed by Pablo Escobar. Mexico was just a springboard for thousands of tons of cocaine to fall into the bottomless pool of the United States, filled with greedy consumers.

Mexican drug traffickers, who until then only traded marijuana and heroin, facilitated their routes to transport the white powder.7 Guzmán Loera was able to gain the sympathy of Colombians for their efficiency in the transfer of coca and the delivery of profits in record time , Which earned him the nickname of Rapido. His promising criminal career was truncated after his arrest in 1993, but after his escape - the first - he re-started dizzyingly to become a legend.

When he left the prison, El Chapo improved the method of operation of the Sinaloa Cartel and strengthened it by building a criminal coalition with other drug traffickers called The Federation. There they were integrated the Cartel de los Valencia, Michoacán; The Cartel de Juarez, Chihuahua; Juan Jose Esparragoza Moreno, alias the Blue, and the Beltran Leyva, cousins ​​of Guzmán Loera.

During the seven years that the Chapo was in prison, the Colombian cartels were weakening. Upon leaving, he and Zambada García took advantage of the vacuum and were replacing them throughout the chain of business. The Sinaloa Cartel made direct contact with cocaine producers in South America and began taking over the sale of the drug on the streets of major American cities. Thus they multiplied their profits and, with these, their power.

The world became a World Tourist Board that Guzman Loera appropriated. It gained control of the main Mexican ports, both in the Atlantic and Pacific, and in the border cities with the United States and Guatemala. The confines of his kingdom extended to Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Panama, turning them into zones of passage and storage of drugs.

El Chapo was able to understand and adapt to the metamorphosis of the drug market in the United States and Europe, and made the Sinaloa Cartel the main producer of methamphetamine in the world. Its businesses reached Africa and Asia, where it established sources of supply of the chemical elements necessary for the production of the synthetic drugs.

8 The New York court is accused of bribing officials at all levels of government: federal, state and municipal, both inside and outside Mexico, who would have paid millions of dollars to secure the free transfer of tons of drugs From the south of the continent to the United States.

According to US government officials, the large bribes distributed by the Sinaloa Cartel in the Mexican government ensured that South American drug shipments arrived in the national territory smoothly and that tons of drugs were directly escorted by the Forces of order to the border with the United States.

In the criminal charge against the Chapo, The United States government recognizes for the first time that during the last 10 years of the alleged "war on drugs" undertaken by the Mexican government, the Sinaloa Cartel and Guzman Loera were protected by various institutions and helped them seize the territories Of rival posters.

Thus, with the dice loaded in his favor, Guzmán Loera faced a long and bloody war against the Cartel de Tijuana, the Gulf Poster and the Zetas. Then there was a rupture with his allies the Cartel de los Beltrán Leyva and the Cartel de Juárez after the Chapo betrayed his cousin Alfredo Beltran Leyva and turned it over to Mexican authorities in early 2008. As he betrayed, he was betrayed.


* * *

Ivan Archivaldo Guzmán Salazar, alias Chapito, and Jesus Alfredo, Better known within the Sinaloa Cartel as Alfredillo, are two of Chapo's eighteen children with diverse women, but they are best known by the media, in social networks and by American justice.

Chapito was 13 years old and Alfredillo was only 7 when his father was first arrested in 1993. According to Guzmán Loera's relatives, the two are his closest children, preferred. Of all the offspring of the capo they were invited to the meeting between his father and the actress Kate del Castillo and the actor Sean Penn carried out in October of 2015.

The first time that the name of Iván Archivaldo gained relevance was to its 25 years , When in 2005 he was arrested in Zapopan, Jalisco, accused of money laundering. Like his father, Was imprisoned in the maximum security prison of Almoloya de Juárez, but for him there was no escape operation. He left the prison three years later, after a judge dismissed the charges against him.

While in Mexico he was exonerated, the United States government followed the steps to the Chapito and discovered his participation in the Sinaloa Cartel from at least 2005 until 2014. In 2013 he was formally charged in the Federal District Court of Southern California to traffic Cocaine and marijuana to the United States, raise the proceeds from the sale of that drug and launder money by buying cars and luxury aircraft. A warrant has been issued for his arrest in the United States since June 2014.

At the age of 19, his brother Alfredillo also succumbed to the tentacles of the family business, Coming to have even a more relevant role than his older brother. In the Eastern District Court of Illinois, he is accused of participating in drug trafficking operations in at least nine Latin American countries, including Mexico, since 2005 - the same year that his brother was first introduced. He is also charged with assisting in the trafficking and sale of drugs in California, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, New York, Washington, Wisconsin and Massachusetts, as well as arms trafficking and payment of bribes to public officials.

When Guzmán Loera was detained by the Mexican government in February 2014 in a DEA coordinated operation in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, despite the work Chapito and Alfredillo carried out within the cartel, Chapo preferred to entrust the reins of the business to Licensed and not to his offspring.

The capo felt that his two sons were not yet ready to take over. He was worried about his displays on Facebook and Twitter showing off with guns, money, women, super cars, lions and tigers. In contrast, his compadre Dámaso López Núñez had a much more discreet profile and was well known by suppliers and large distributors of the drug, which guaranteed confidence and stability in the business.

The Chapo's decision was respected by his two sons and his partner, Mayo Zambada. The Licenciado diligently guarded the Chapo's interests within the cartel, while accumulating more power. When in mid-2015, Guzman Loera managed to escape again from a maximum security prison, without further problems he regained the reins of his criminal business without any tangible resistance from López Núñez.

Things changed radically in January 2016 after Guzmán Loera's re-election in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, and the immediate request for extradition from the United States government.

After the first months of prison, the sons of the capo realized that the power of his father was weakening. In February 2016 Emma Coronel Aispuro, a former beauty queen with whom she joined in 2007, broke the traditional silence kept by the sentimental companions of the capos to defend Guzman Loera. He accused the Mexican government of wanting to assassinate him through torture in prison, such as a ban on sleep, which had already provoked several reports of an infarct.9 The Chapo had been left alone suddenly, like a king without subjects. The end of his era had begun.

Faced with the weakness of his father, And even the fear of his death, Chapito and Alfredillo began to pressure the Licentiate to share his father's business with them. They would have claimed money, property and space to participate in the drug trafficking business. The Licentiate gave them long, without confronting directly with them. Before the evident decline, he was acquiring greater power and loyalties within the faction of the Chapo.

Suddenly, armed attacks on Guzmán Loera's family, once unthinkable.

* * *

The rancheria of La Tuna, located in Badiraguato, Sinaloa, is the terroir that saw Chapo born. There lived his mother, Consuelo Loera, more than 80 years old, a fervent Christian who used to spend most of his time in the church praying for the salvation of his son's soul.

According to Emma Colonel, for the capo his family is most dear and important, and his mother above all and all.

No one had been able to defy the capo's power in his own land. No one until the morning of August 11, 2016 when an armed command of over 50 men dressed in black and hooded suddenly burst into the rancheria.

The mother of Guzmán Loera was in his house under the care of a woman who helped her in the cleaning tasks. The armed group entered the house of Mrs. Consuelo, aimed with a gun at the person who took care of her and took his cell phone, while the mother of Chapo demanded the keys to the house. They robbed her a couple of cars and cut the internet to make her incommunicado.

The assault on the hacienda lasted a few minutes and then the armed men went out to burn and burn the houses nearby where people lived working for the Guzman Loera family. The walls of the dwellings and the vehicles were like coladera. Nor was the welcome sign to La Tuna unharmed.

Witnesses told the story that one of the houses removed a woman of advanced age and set fire to the hut so that her son, who was hidden inside, left. When he managed to escape the flames, they riddled him in front of his mother.

While the armed group attacked the other inhabitants of the ranchería, Consuelo Loera and the woman who took care of her managed to flee aboard a small plane that took off from one of the clandestine tracks in the place, piloted by a man of confidence. The Chapo's mother was terrified and took refuge in Culiacan with one of her daughters.

That day in La Tuna three men were killed and in the neighboring rancheria known as Arrollo Seco two others. There the armed command burned the body of a man from the waist down.

El Chapo was shocked when he was informed of what had happened. The prison authorities allowed him to make a call to his mother.

During the seven days after the attack, the command continued to terrorize the population in La Tuna, La Palma and Arrollo Seco, causing the exodus of its inhabitants. Witnesses of the facts affirm that the armed men shouted that they went of part of Beltrán Leyva and Alfredo Betrán Guzmán, alias the Mochomito.

The Mochomito, 24 years old, Is son of the marriage between Alfredo Beltrán Leyva -treated by the Chapo in 2008- and Patricia Guzmán Núñez, niece of the capo. Despite the war between the two families, the young man was considered as one of the Guzman Loera clan and attended family gatherings. Mrs. Consuelo loved him like a grandson.

The Guzman Loera clan was sure that the intellectual and material author was the boy allied with the Beltran Leyva Cartel and the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG). But the bad streak did not end there.


* * *

The night of August 14, 2016 Chapito and Alfredillo went to the fashionable restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, called La Leche, frequented by politicians and artists. The children of Guzmán Loera gathered in the place to celebrate the bachelorette party of their cousin Esmeralda. There were about a dozen guests, most of whom were family members.

At dawn, when only they and staff remained, about five men with long guns entered the restaurant. Instinctively the men and women crouched down and tried to hide under the table thinking they were going to blast them. They managed to escape the group of plagiarists, but took six of the attendees, including the two offspring of the capo, his cousin Jose Manuel Diaz Burgos and other relatives.

It was a stroke with surgeon precision. No one could explain how the attack could have been so accurate. Ivan and Alfredo used to travel with security guards and even snipers, and few knew their movements and whereabouts. The family was convinced that it was a new attack by Mochomito and his allies.

Within hours the government of Jalisco affirmed that the "levantón" had been orchestrated by the CJNG. Four days later the six raised were released thanks to the intervention of Mayo Zambada. A member of the Guzmán Loera clan said that in addition to having paid money, there was a forced negotiation of territories with the enemy cartel.

On December 10, the Mochomito was arrested in Zapopan, Jalisco. But this did not end the problems for the Chapo. The boy had served only as a distractor, a curtain of smoke to hide the face of the true traitor.

Along with the attacks on his family, Chapo's health deteriorated seriously. After the attack on his mother's house and the abduction of his children, on August 24, 2016, in an Istanbul Protocol sent to do for the defense of Guzman Loera, a study that is applied in cases of alleged torture Physician found that the once all-powerful and invincible capo had "generalized anxiety disorder and mild neurocognitive disorder." A month later, in a court hearing in Chihuahua, in the federal prison that was his last home before the extradition, Chapo admitted to the judge that his brain hurt a lot and he was in bad memory.

After the attacks and the precarious state of health of Joaquin Guzmán Loera inside the prison, its solid empire once of steel, was made of glass. The extradition was the last blow that collapsed him. He has been imprisoned for two months in Manhattan. His defense complains that the mental condition of the bonnet has deteriorated and now even hallucinations.

It was late when the Guzman Loera clan understood who was behind the attacks on La Tuna and the kidnapping of Chapo's children. According to relatives of the capo, after the ambush in Imala, Chapito and Alfredillo managed to capture an operator of Lopez Núñez, who allegedly confessed that it had been the betrayal of the Licenciado what had caused the last arrest of Guzmán Loera and the attacks on the family.

Thus they learned that the once trusted man of the Chapo had allied with the New Generation Jalisco Cartel, Alfredo Beltrán Guzmán,

Along with a war of fire, as a strategy to weaken the two sons of Chapo within the cartel, Lopez Núñez carried out for months a cyber war against them. He ordered to create Facebook blogs and accounts where they were accused of collaborating with the DEA, exposing members of the Sinaloa Cartel in exchange for protection for his father.

Who was the man of trust of the Chapo devised to transform the nickname of the Chapitos in the Sapitos (informers) to provoke inside the cartel distrust against them. He himself supervised the content of the dirty campaign and monitored its effectiveness.

" The boys have no people, they have no way to fight against Damasus, " explained a Chapo family member, "they could only wage war if they had the help of the Mayo." But inside the cartel is known that Zambada Garcia does not want to fight with the Licensee and at all costs wants to avoid a bloodbath that would affect the business.

* * *

DEA officials confirmed that who left as successor of Joaquín Guzmán Loera in his faction within the Sinaloa Cartel is Dámaso López Núñez, who in a short time will be included in the list of most wanted by the United States government.

The last image they have of him authorities dates back more than 15 years. In it it bears a beard of padlock that helps to hide the visibility of its factions. Today it would be hard to recognize him on the street.

At 50 years of age and more than one meter seventy in height, of the appearance of that photo the only thing that the Licenciado conserves is the thin complexion and in good form. He now wears a short, military-like cap; The shaved face highlights his split chin and bulging cheeks as if masking bullets. Her small, dark eyes, framed by eyebrows like scouts, are like warheads.

Those who know it indicate that it is handled with low profile. It is not ostentatious in jewelry or clothing. He is described as a cunning, reckless, explosive and bloodthirsty man who does not tempt his heart to make decisions that have to do with the drug business.

@Deelucky1 I agree a lot of this has been stated in other articles, but she usually has newsworthy stuff so I thought to share.  The strangest thing to me from this was the "cyber war" led by Damaso. I think this is the first that I have heard the phrase "cyber war" in relation to drug cartels.  

The old guard of shutting your mouth and doing your time has evolved into hiring people to "name call" on Facebook.  LOL

Another thing keep in mind chapitos grew up in jalisco only ovidio and sis  grew up culiacan  now does it make more sense who would even be considered steering the ship and who knows the ins and outs of the biz these dingle berrys didnt show  up to culiacan till they where in there 20's pretty much why antrax disliked the new guys in town including mini lic  theyre considered soft but they had daddy to to hide under his skirt.ovidio was schholed by el jt and ondeado torres clan  while these idiots where still popping zits.dosnt take a genuis to know where ovidio ended up if you can beleive what i said ..when chikillo mafias laughed like chucky from childs play in ivans face it was panu who laid him out ivan didnt do nothing just analyzing what was said and the type of reflexes he has  i cant confirm !where i get confused is he goes to jail for suppsdly killing a  defensless girl and guy that he said laughed at him ?only him and his boys can confirm the story thats what makes him the terror of culiacan plus he claims he did 2 1/2 years in the joint
