This is one I find particularly interesting because I just translated an article about El Memin yesterday. Quite frankly he was a ruthless narco from the description I read and his death comes as no surprise.
El Nacional - The jefe of sicarios for Los Zetas in Cancún Bernardo González Castillo, alias "El Memín", died yesterday during a confrontation with police. Six other sicarios of the organization were captured, according to authorities in the Caribbean state of Mexico.
The general prosecutor for the state of Quintana Roo, Francisco Alor, explained that during the gunfire, the leader of sicarios died in a hale of bullets.
Alor confirmed that the operation that lasted over 5 hours. During that time, the army and members of the federal police were called in. The aftermath left the infamous Zeta dead along with one person who was seriously injured. 10 other suspects that were arrested.
"We were on the trail of "El Memin" for several days. We knew he was involved with several executions last week. He was also responsible for an attack on a high ranking police official who was shot in the head. But that is only one of the crimes he was being sought for," said the official.
The spokesman for the state police also confirmed that the Zeta leader was spotted as he was boarding a taxi. When he noticed he was being tailed, EL Memin opened fire on police and the ensuing gunfight cost him his life.
Alor explained that the gang that was led by El Memin "was full of members of the municipal police, among them 3 women who were detained for their participation as Halcones (lookouts) for the criminal organization about the movements of fellow police officers."
That evening, 4 Muni-police were arrested on the suspicion of having ties with El Memin's group.
Excerpt that mentioned El Memin (read the whole article on Borderland Beat)
El Javi confirmed a man named El Chilango was murdered by a member of Los Zetas, El Memín, on the orders of Comandante Pelón and El Mayuyo.
"He was abducted and we transferred him to a house in a neighborhood called Residencial Las Américas. El Memín took a butcher knife and beheaded El Chilango while he was still alive," said El Javi, quien añadió: "I watched him as he did it. Afterwords, he stuck the blade into the the body and kicked it repeatedly."
They had also tortured Chilango before killing him, asking him for the name and location of his supplier.
