I believe that "El Travieso" has some relation to the Caro Quintero clan, through Jose Gil Caro Quintero.

He was said to have been seeing a top sicarios girlfriend my cousin worked with his managers brother, everyone is scared to speak tho. They think the girl said he said the one coming on to her, we'll see how this plays out. Or if she ends up hung off a bridge or encobijada. That dude had his whole life ahead of him, he's died for fucking with the wrong hoe,

Singers and musicians in Mexico have been killed for reasons as simple as refusing to write or perform a song for the cartel. Who knows?

In Mexico, people are murdered for little or no reason at all. Perhaps the singer did not want to sing a song or songs that glorify the drug cartel who was responsible for his murder. Perhaps he was murdered because he didn't want to give his money to beggars (cuota). Some will kill you if you don't hand them your new sneakers, little things like that.

If he was involved in drug dealings of some sort, selling drugs for one clan of criminal,s another clan that found out about it killed him. But in civilized countries THE COMPETITION IS NOT MURDERED as is done in Mexico. In Mexico, a child like mentality exists in those who carry guns and work for criminal organization, they are like high chair tyrants (llorones) who demand things from mommy and if mommy doesn't deliver then the cry baby tries to make the mother pay by driving her nuts and testing her nerves. If the child is old enough he may try plan B and fire a shot of mashed potatoes in mother's face by springing tension on his spoon loaded with a scoop of potatoes and then release the loaded spoon towards mommy's face ... ja ja ja.

He wasn't in a cartel, so you can't rate his age to cartel years.

Like i said before when this is all over what are we gonna do with these criminals cteated by the cartels. They abuse their power given to them by their bosses.. I had a cousin that was killed because the chick he was with used to be with a pussy from the same neighborhood. He was an absolute coward we all knew him. He managed to click up with la gente and killed my cousin.. over nothing really they were just friends with benefits. en mexico te mueres por un chisme. You dont have to be associated with any cartel. Thanx for letting me post

Cartel years are shorter than dog years. Look at the age of those dying, 15-30 years old is what you hear most. I would say a cartel year is equivalent to around 5 or 6 calendar years.

The musician SINGER they killed was singing songs 'relating to' this and that cartel and one of those cartels killed him:


'Quintero Salas', the singer / musician:

" ... 'Quintero Salas' sacó discos con nombres como ¿Por qué te vas?, Nomás contigo y Malo malo, que contienen temas con títulos como "El Z9", "El Chapo del barrial", "La venganza del M1", "El Sr. Mayo Zambada", "Chino Antrax" o "Coralillo venenoso". ... "
.

We were BORN as Human Beings and as human beings we have needs such as:

- We all NEED TO BELIEVE THAT 'our lives', OUR LIVES!!! H.a.v.e. M.e.a.n.i.n.g.

- we want to be APPRECIATED, we want & need to Be Loved

- we want HUMAN CONNECTIONS
- WE NEED T.R.U.E FRIENDS
...


And Singer Jesus "El Travieso" Quintero WAS LIKE US, HE o.n.l.y. WANTED A MEANINGFUL LIFE, he NEEDED & wanted FRIENDS, HIS ARMS WERE WIDE OPEN TO THE WORLD HE WAS BORN INTO.

To and 'To WANT TO BE a Star' means to want to CONNECT WITH ALL OF HUMANITY, that's what Singer Jesus "El Travieso" Quintero was reaching for. What a CRIME eh!!

Another sad sad ending for only Being HUMAN for simply trying to FUNCTION & SURVIVE In Mexico!!

It's a joke you fool.Ever hear of gallows humor?

He was not in any cartel, he was born and raised in Sinaloa. Because he was born and raise in Sinaloa does that make him from a cartel?

If you are born and raised in Compton does that make you a Gangsta?

Whatever the case maybe! my deepest condolenses to the family.

I new Jesus when he was only Ten and would sing for me and my husband in my backyard, those are the memories I would like to have and none of this BS especulation from strangers that don't even know who he was.

RIP Jesus

so had he died at 10 i would say he was closer to innocent than guilty.
at 27 he was closer to guilty than innocent.
