When el Coss was presented to the media a reporter yelled at him asking a question "es el fin del cartel?" or "is this the end of the cartel?" Coss stood there without responding to anything, just that serious stern look, knowing that at least for him, the game was over.
The structure change in the leadership of the Gulf Cartel (CDG):
2003: Osiel Cardenas Guillen (El Duque) is arrested
2010: Ezequiel Cardenas Guillen (Tony Tormenta) is killed.
2011: Samuel Flores Borrego (Metro Tres) is killed.
September 4, 2012: Mario Cardenas Guillen (El Gordo) is arrested.
September 12, 2012: Juan Gabriel Montes (Sierra) is arrested.
September 12, 2012: Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sanchez (El Coss) is arrested.
What is next, will this be the end for CDG?
A top leader is gone but the cells of Los Metro and Los Rojos remains intact, will they die or remerged with new leadership?
Is Mario Armando Ramírez Treviño "El Pelon" be able to position himself with anough clout to maintain crontrol of the internal conflict within the CDG and emerge as a top capo? Or will he be the next casualty or will he just fade out of the spotlight?
Only time will tell, but we will be watching!
