Latest Released Teenage Assassin and Mom Killed in Zacatecas

Borderland Beat 
A 13-year-old boy who had confessed to being an assassin for a Mexican drug cartel was among six people found murdered execution-style, authorities in the central Mexican state of Zacatecas have confirmed.
The boy, identified as Jose Armando Moreno Leos by officials, was arrested only three weeks ago by the Mexican Federal Police, according to Arturo Nahle Garcia, state’s attorney in Zacatecas.

Among the bodies of the women is reportedly the young assassin's mother.

“After being detained, he confessed to authorities that he had participated in at least 10 homicides and that he was somebody who was good at shooting with a high-caliber weapon,” Nahle Garcia said.
After his February arrest, the Federal Police released the boy into the custody of the Mexican Attorney General’s Office, which later set him free in compliance with the law. The Mexican constitution prohibits the incarceration of anybody under the age of 14. The constitutional ban also applies to correctional facilities.

According to Nahle Garcia, Moreno Leos missed a court appearance on February 20. “Only his mother appeared before the judge to say that she had lost control of her son after he left the house at about age 11,” the prosecutor, said.

The court appearance was to determine custody and measures to help the teenager leave behind a life of crime.

The boy’s body was found Thursday alongside a highway in the municipality of Morelos.

 


The bodies of five other people, four females and one male, were also found at the same location. Officials say they had all been shot execution-style with high-caliber weapons.

“They all appeared to be young people, but we’re still in the process of positively identifying the bodies,” Nahle Garcia said.
This is not the first time a teenager has admitted being a hit man for organized crime in Mexico. In 2011, authorities arrested a 14-year-old boy, identified only as “El Ponchis” — “El Ponchis” — who admitted on camera that he had brutally killed people. In a video obtained by CNN, he told a military interrogator that he had beheaded four people.
El Ponchis
El Ponchis was found guilty and sentenced to three years in a correctional facility, the maximum allowed under Mexican law.

Arturo Nahle Garcia
Nahle Garcia said he’s not surprised. “It’s really unfortunate, but we’re seeing more and more young men who drop out of school and end up selling drugs on the streets,” he said. “They all end up the same. They either end up in jail or the cemetery.”

  4. Great re-hab,and his lovley mother also! The public deserves security ABOVE the lofty idea of SAVING a young person who was "Misguided". Mexico has more than its share of crude savage people who operate without restraint, these outlaws must be met with strong, stable, swift ,certain control (LAW). The present and past lack of LAW in Mexico has directly resulted in the CHAOS that is Mexico. Its just like raising a child,human nature, STRUCTURE,DICIPLINE,you get performance and respect. The coddling of juvenile criminals is counter productive BUT typical of romantic Mexican culture B.S.

    1. You are not saying anything. I appreciate the fact that some people take extra time to use and learn new words but you also have to work on your grammar. You are going around in circles and hardly saying anything at all. There's plenty of other ways of sayin that negligence and vulgar lifestyle lead to corrupt narco-lives, without sounded like a jackass posing as a pseudo intellectual. This is real fucked up shit that happens in the world so, take it seriously.

    2. Coddling? Lol You can say the American welfare system is "coddling" but these mexican laws aren't, they're just ineffective. Whoever wrote them could not expect narcos to find these loop holes and prey on young sicarios. You don't know how to use have the words you're saying man

  6. The utilization of child soldiers by armed groups, whether regular or irregular, is. as old as time itself. These cartels have shown that when it comes to the drug wars, there are no rules. Not only have they resorted to employing juveniles at their service, but have demonstrated they are willing to kill them and women if they feel the need to. May God help Mexico.

  7. 8:39am. Don't we have a similar problem in the US,where at 21 year old, a child serial killer usually walks? And, then they are usually alot more savvy about crime? It makes my head spin to hear about drug traffickers, using children to become paid assassins. There should be another level of HELL for the scum that turn innocent children into killers,drug dealers,kidnappers and prostitutes. I agree with much of what you are saying though. It's just one other issue that points out the true chaos that is pervasive in both countries. God bless all the innocents made to pay the price for the needs of criminals,deviates and drug addicts. Thanks once again, Texas Grandma. Peace to all.

    Jeez!I meant to change that non-Ponchis photo out last thing last night. I remembered it was lame. Usually catch the spaceouts. Damn- There are many pieces to these posts-sometimes a detail gets forgotten, a typo, etc... So thank you!

    As for the young sicario, it was just a matter of time.. It isn't as if he was going to walk the straight and narrow after getting caught. He was bad to the bone. Sorry but I'm not sad about the loss in the least. It's Mexico's gain in my book. Again thanks and Bye for now

  11. Well I'm happy to know he is dead, one less criminal roaming the streets.

  12. Nice Havana...

    I would disagree with one big point, this is not a Ponchis like assassin. That is like saying Z40 and Chapo are alike. Their background/history could not be more different. Ponchis was on his own, neglected street kid born addicted to drugs, had no one protecting or loving him. Whereas Jose had a loving home and choices. He IMO is the scarier of the 2 as he presents himself to be a sociopath.

    I agree with Texcoco Society is better off with his death.

  15. I can't help think how many other junior sicarios are out there that never get caught eorking eith excess of energy and half as much developed brain power. Still they know killing someone is final and against every law in the world! So execute cold blooded killers. They can mot be fixed. Killing for a living ruins you-don't do it!

  16. im not so sure that law about juviniles in the us getting released at 21, used to yes but,. i think it has to do with the nature of the crime one commits nowadays, some states will try them as adults if there was a despicable nature of the killing/'s...

  17. i'm confused how many ponchis were there?? there is the one in all those videos, but he was light complected and scrawny with an afro, the one in the pic looks a lighter shade of black, and was that a guy called ponchis too?, wasnt he busted trying to board a plane to the us: san diego' as he was supposedly " a citizen"
