To do this it has focused its activity in the Golden triangle, one of the largest areas of opium production in America and has partnered with the Beltran Leyva, bitter enemies of the Sinaloa cartel. Each time more daring, in your climb would be trying to seize control of Ciudad Juárez, the great gate of entry to the united States.
Everything is denied by Caro Quintero. “The named appellant alleged insolvency because, she says, have more than sixty years of age, not be a pensioner or retired”.

In a sense similar express now Caro Quintero, and from then deny it, as it always has done, its participation in the murder of DEA agent, Enrique “Kiki” Camarenathe crime that led him to prison in 1985 and since then haunts him night and day.

In an area of the organization, the police american was tortured again and again while a doctor I had with life. When his body was recovered, it was discovered that he had been castrated and buried alive.
The atrocity struck as never before the heart of the DEA. The agency launched a massive operation, within and outside the law to catch the culprits. None was spared.
The first to fall was “The Narco of Narcos”. The justice of Mexico was sentenced to 40 yearsbut in 2013, when he was 12 years to comply, managed by a court of Jalisco would leave him at liberty by a defect of form. When the decision was invalidated was already in hiding.
His output has not escaped the eyes of the government of the united States, including a record of the court of Southern District of New York ensures that the drug traffickeroriginally from Badiraguato, Sinaloa, ands one of the business partners of the dictator of venezuela, Nicolas Madurowho also points to smuggle drugs.
Among other allegations that he faces Rafael Caro Quintero highlights that you referred to that since 1980, maintains the leadership of the Sinaloa Carteleven from prison, which would have generated hundreds of millions of dollars.
