Agents Posed as Los Zetas as US Soldiers Busted in Murder-for-Hire Plot

A former Fort Carson officer allegedly offered to steal weapons from the post and organize a murder-for-hire plot with another soldier as part of a nationwide drug-trafficking ring they tried to run, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Monday.
CORLEY
1st Lt. Kevin Corley, 29, who was discharged from the Army earlier this month, was arrested Saturday in Laredo, Texas, while finalizing details with undercover agents for the contract killing, according to a criminal complaint filed in a U.S. District Court in Texas.
Corley later admitted to federal agents that he organized a four-person kill team to raid a ranch in Texas and steal 20 kilograms of cocaine, the complaint said.
Two of those alleged team members — including a sergeant at Fort Carson — were arrested Saturday in the sting, the complaint said.
The final alleged member — Corley’s cousin, Jerome Corley — was shot to death while federal agents moved in to arrest the men.
Federal prosecutors did not immediately release details of how Jerome Corley died or who shot him.
Kevin Corley, Sgt. Samuel Walker, 28 — both of Colorado Springs — and Shavar Davis, 29, of Denver, are scheduled to appear Thursday in a Texas courtroom for a detention hearing.
WALKER
Walker is assigned the 4th Brigade Combat Team of the 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson, a unit that Kevin Corley served with before his discharge.
Undercover agents first talked to Corley on Sept. 26 after discovering a picture of a grenade that was believed to be smuggled off of a military  post, the complaint said.
Over several months, prosecutors allege that Corley offered tactical training to agents posing as drug cartel members, such as “room clearing, security and convoy security.”
He also boasted of provide weapons, which “could easily be stolen from military posts,” the complaint said.
And he repeatedly offered to conduct “wet work,” which agents took to mean contract killings, according to the complaint.
The whole plot spawned from a plan to ship 500 pounds of marijuana to Columbia, S.C., prosecutors said.
DAVIS
Two men, Marcus Mickle and Calvin Epps, first tried to organize the shipment with federal agents posing as Los Zetas cartel members, the complaint said.
The men brought Kevin Corley into the plan after undercover agents noticed the grenade picture.
In the months that followed, Corley allegedly told the agents he could assemble two teams — one that could train 40 cartel members in two weeks and another to carry out contract killings. Corley's military experience would have paid off on the job -- the brigade on its last Afghanistan mission trained Afghan troops in combat and counter-insurgency operations.
In early December, agents received an Army Tactics Battle Book in the mail from Corley, according to the complaint.
A month later, Corley offered to assemble a team to steal 20 kilograms of cocaine from a rival cartel, the complaint said. The agents posing as cartel members agreed, offering $50,000 and five kilograms of cocaine for the job.
Corley also said he would provide security for the 500-pound shipment of marijuana slated to be trucked from Texas to South Carolina, according to the complaint.
The truck was pulled over and seized by federal agents in mid-January. Kevin Corley, Jerome Corley and Epps were driving in the vehicle ahead of the shipment and were not pulled over.
Despite the seizure, the complaint alleges that Kevin Corley continued trying to arrange for marijuana shipments in February and March to Mario Corley in South Carolina.
Federal agents also alleged that Kevin Corley continued planning the murder-for-hire plot.
On Saturday, Kevin Corley, Jerome Corley, Walker and Davis allegedly met with federal agents to carry out the killing, the complaint said.
After confirming their plans, federal agents moved in. During the arrest, Jerome Corley was fatally shot. The other three men were arrested by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Mickle and Epps and Mario Corley were arrested in South Carolina, prosecutors said.

  3. yes sir..

    .more,.. how can i say this so it will pass the moderators...how about "afro" murkins..gone to prison..13% of the population..commit 90% of the crimes ..these are are a real credit to their community...

    all the controversy about traycon martin..(he was an up an coming thug nigga)..it is ok that is what they call themselves ..killed by a white hispanic???? man in defense of his life..


    it may well be that Mexico will be a much safer country to be in than the USA..especially if obama loses the election...these things are set to riot and kill anglos and latinos, and maybe even jews

    right now the virulently racist black panthers organization have a 10,000 USD blood bounty out on Mr. Zimmerman , who is of mixed hispanic/Peruvian and jewish ancestry..they (the BP's) are calling him Mexican...so Mexicanos aviso

    if you are either jewish, anglo, or hispanic/latino ..and you live in the USA ..take care in the next few days

    how sad my country is becoming

    be glad that , whatever problems Mexico may have ...it dosen't have these things running loose

    i don't expect this to pass moderation..but maybe

  6. Great story. Corruption is alive and well on both sides the only difference is that in Mexico they don't bury them behind other stories like they do in the USA.

  7. Pretty disturbing, you can see and hear the sickness, willingness, and callousness of these guys, they would do whatever it took to be 'with' the cartels for the big money and power, and it was a charade the entire time. Cutting Z's into peoples chests? Stealing shipments? These aren't desperate, or poor people, forced into circumstances beyond their control, or because of their circumstances, they wanted the blood on their hands and knifes, and were begging for it.

  19. These guys do seem pretty scummy, but I have a certain degree for anyone who will put their life on the line every day in Iraq or Afghanistan for $1200 a month. Watching people close to you get blown apart in an instant has a way of dehumanizing people. I'm not trying to make excuses for these guys, but many ex-infantry men seek excitement and adventure after their service, sometimes in very dark and evil ways. You try dodging 15 hours a day for 14 months and see how you feel after a few tours of duty.

  20. Well here is a a perfect example; Mexico is NOT the only place w/ corrupted people, US itself has corruption but they just hide it better..

  22. they should have allowed these wanna be gansters to get involved with the cartels .the CDG would have made BBQ from the body of these fools. Dont think this is some hip hop music videos the cartel will torture you cut your body parts in pieces and decapitate you

  23. There you have it ladies and gentlemen. Thugs on both sides of the border are driven by greed and pure insanity. Gang bangers and ex gang bangers with the thug life mentality are what cartels are after.

  34. First off, it's common knowledge that the US military is filled with gang members. The standards for serving has dropped because of the on-going wars in Iraq and Afganistan. Whether the US wants to admit it or not the military has a gang problem. Just like there have been numerous accounts, where active US soldiers have been in involved in the drug trade. The difference is...the media isn't always privy to the crimes. It's sad but true.

  36. I can not picture any of these slovenly slackers in uniform. An officer that betrays his country is not worthy of comment. A Seargeant that exceeds standards for weight and appearance should have to pay back his earnings because he can not lead troops. Was he going to drive along as zeta recruits run through their drills?

  42. Typical US law enforcement. They can't bust real cartel members here so they play a game and entrap some really stupid fucks and act like they did something. Worse, now we will have to support their families on Welfare for the next 20 years. We can't win the War on Drugs, and we cannot afford it. WTF.......

  43. This is the reason why theres not US troops running all over the mex. and usa border bc a lot more of them would be doing it. These guys were idiots, how long does it take to plan a 20 key hit. 20 keys just doesnt sit around forever, not to mention the payment was way to high for mexican cartels, sounded like a set up. Theses guys shouldve started a private security company like blackwater couldve made good honest money. By the way great security on the 500 lbs that got busted, and you got a second chance, set up!

  52. you Mexicans on this site is so Racist. regardless of the many african american male choices, this should not become such a major assumption that all blacks are alike even in the TRayvon Martin murder case and certainly,whatever actions might have refrained him from living today, that occur that night, it does not classfy the entire race. As i am sure, the many latin gang classes does not summont up the entire latino population especially hard working immigrants. I am not going to take that away from you. I believe that everyone has the right to remain equal that mexicans have the every right to also come to America just like everybody else and work for the 'opportune moment' to earn the american dream. okay, so it kinda does leaves a regard for what people think. yes, it taints and vulgarizes the face of the black commuinty and the many things as from slaves to free men they fought for and with blood, sweat and tears of many dead victors through the high-rising waters of hell has achieved, but whose future sons of bad seeds which sadly is the visualized vocation that is sent out to the world. but is not true.
    Above all, I just think as a race, as one people in this world of human trial and error we may progress to see eachother as God see his crafty work which is each one of us. Like love is the ambiance and the homogenous layers of a rose we may able to come to an agreement that colour is not an athour of human genetic varations, not a formulative companion but a descriptive approach, a distincive insinute that defines the definitite of any individual. it only sharpens the flesh features. And o only how I wish the world could see that. anyway, dont praise either side or waive pom-pom for another these cartel men have killed the invirtious humble spirit of the country of Mexico. As we may all know on both sides of the fences sinister plots in government and gloriarize criminality have shed innocent blood to whatever extent to get either politcal POV or money based greed across. Certainly there is only one truth here and only one truth that is behind all these shameful stories on this site
    MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL
    and O how the innocent has to pay for their hell

    as a black island woman I can stillsay I still love and want to go college in Mexico despite the rampant killing sprees there. I still pray one day that we may all live in peace.
