Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

María Guadalupe Jiménez López, Mexican Female Assassin 'La Tosca,' Arrested In Monterrey

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 |



María Guadalupe Jiménez López, an alleged enforcer for the Mexican Los Zetas drug cartel, was arrested last week in Monterrey in connection with a group accused of 20 murders, including those of rival gang members and police officers, according to Mexican newspaper La Crónica de Hoy.
According to Europa Press, Jiménez, aka "La Tosca," confessed to her involvement in 20 homicides after she was arrested along with three other women and three men who worked together.
Milenio reports that police noticed a van without plates fitting the description of a stolen vehicle, which led to the arrests, though none of the people arrested were armed at the time.
Jiménez is accused of leading a criminal cell allegedly responsible for a slew of crimes, including the murder of detective Antonio Montiel Álvarez. Jiménez claimed to have blocked off Álvarez's car with an SUV, and she and a squad opened fire with 9 mm rounds, Proceso reports. Other murders "La Tosca" allegedly headed up include the torture and killing of two youths whose bodies were left in a white Ranger on April 20 and three others killed in February in connection with an attempted car theft.
La Crónica de Hoy notes the 26-year-old widow was responsible for robberies, kidnappings, killing rival gang members and managing 14 drug hotspots in Juárez. For her efforts, "La Tosca" was paid 10,000 pesos every two weeks, or about $1,500 per month.
According to ProcesoMexican authorities are investigating "La Tosca" and her group in association with other murders.

Thats 20,000 pesos a month. When the average mexican makes 2,000 pesos a month. That goes a long way. But fuck this stupid broad. I miss the old Narco days. When it was just one guy in the rancho making almost millions a month and pure exporting. He could care less about peanuts. And was a hero in the community.

I guess feminists have made a full stride with this one! What in the world happened to these girls. I don't want to sound stupid, but I'm assuming that these people are stoned out of their heads when they kill and butcher other people. How can they stay even focused without throwing up. What are they on coke, crack, pills, heroin?

Yeah, a lot of these 'assassins' and 'gang bosses' with the multiple murders, it is much more indicative of a society infested, infected with poverty, these people weren't just born into this. I bet this women was washing windows 8 years ago.

Yeah maybe we grew up on different sides of the tracks, but I still was taught right from wrong and the value of life. There are millions of other Mexican people living in the same conditions but not involved in that crap, and still surviving. Not judging bro, just commenting on how stupid some people are when making desicions that can adversely affect their lives and their families for money #DUMB

death penalty in Mexico Mr. Calderon or when your elected Pena-Nieto.

When has poverty become a good excuse or reasonable argument for turning into a homicidal maniac? I know many Mexicans that make 4$ a day and still manage to live sane, reasonably happy lives. Yes they'd like more but they put their family's safety and well being before money.

Life is different,they didn't have no opportunities whatsoever,unlike some postin on here all shocked and shit.These have got to do it.There is no other way to make money.Do you people also think that poverty and crime are not related?Fuck outta here,of course they related.I bet they would love to have an office job sittin on their ass and gettin payed good wages.But it will never happen,so they think fuck it,fuck you,and fuck the world.Violence,crime and poverty are brothers and sisters.The ones with the jobs,and the ones without.The ones with,want more laws,more protection for their good life.The ones without don't give a shit about anything.Maybe if as a society we tried to create more opportunities for young people,we may have less trouble?I,m alright Jack,most violent places on earth have one thing in common,guess what it is.

@11:29 AM Ah, another highly educated history expert. And what type of work do you go to? Teaching US history perhaps. Or maybe creative writing. Maybe you teach international relations?

Your specialty must be hallucinogenic drugs because you are certainly tripping on something if you think the US is not a better, SAFER place than Mexico.

the u.s. is safer just the u.s.a covers up alot of thier problems i worked in an outreach program in dallas and saw alot of killings and alot of the drug problems the u.s faces.but i also seen alot of the vilolence in mexico due to when all the deportation started. so basically this violence is coming from american influence maybe you should consider going into the nieghborhoods where high crimerate is at and seeing for yourselves.mexico was not like this before. because of racial profiling and hate towards minorities there they have come with american ways of dealing with things.and since in mexico the law enforcement aint about shit .people took advantage of it.sorry the truth bothers you.

All this BS about Mexicans being poor and not having any choice but to kill for a living. That's a load of crap, Mexicans now aren't as poor as 50-100 years ago and people then had better values, now it's all about greed and wanting everything easy without appreciating it, if you're poor it doesn't make you a killer, there's probably lots of Mexicans who are poor but they don't get involved in murder, bottom line be it man or woman you'd have to be one cold, hard mother fker to kill anyone especially the way people in Mexico are getting killed.

You must be from a different planet. The USA does not make excuses for its failures because IT COVERS THEM UP. THE USA HAS MORE VIOLENT DEATHS IN ONE YEAR THAN MEXICO HAS IN THREE OF FOUR YEARS PUT TOGETHER. LOOK AT THE FACTUAL STATISTICS ON THE USA GOV WEBSITES. STOP USING DOPE AND GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS.

For him who points to the United States as having more violent deaths, pls consider the facts. Murders in US per 100k population -4.8 Mexico 18 per 100k.
More... Perhaps, Chances of being murdered, not even close. Crying shame too as Mexico used to be a great place while having wonderful people
