Slain Drug Cartel Lawyer Was U.S. Informant

Southlake attorney gunned down last week worked with U.S. agents

Juan Guerrero Chapa, 43, was gunned down at about 7 p.m. May 22 at the Southlake Town Square by a masked man who jumped out of the back seat of a white sport utility vehicle, police said. Chapa had worked for the Department of Homeland Security Investigations, secretly providing inside information on cartel operations to American investigators.

The Mexican drug cartel attorney who was slain execution-style in Southlake last week had been a confidential informant for the U.S. government, law enforcement sources told NBC 5.

Juan Guerrero Chapa, 43, had worked for the Department of Homeland Security Investigations, secretly providing inside information on cartel operations to American investigators.

HSI is part of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Guerrero was gunned down at about 7 p.m. May 22 at the Southlake Town Square by a masked man who jumped out of the back seat of a white sport utility vehicle, police said. It was the first homicide in the upscale suburb since 1999.

The attorney had worked for top leaders of the Gulf Cartel, including former top boss Osiel Cardenas, who is now in prison in the United States.



It was unclear if his role as an informant may have leaked to the cartel, providing a motive for his killing. At least two U.S. trials of high-ranking Gulf Cartel members have concluded in recent weeks.

Guerrero, a Mexican citizen, his wife and three teenage children had been living in Southlake for two years, police said.

They had been living in the U.S. legally, according to ICE spokesman Carl Rusnock. High-level informants from Mexico or other countries are sometimes allowed to live in the United States as long as they are cooperating.

Rusnock had no comment when asked about Guerrero’s role as an informant. He referred questions to Southlake police.

Southlake police spokeswoman Kim Leach also declined comment.

Along with the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration, HSI investigates drug crimes.

With 6,700 special agents, HSI is the second-largest federal law enforcement agency. Only the FBI is bigger.

    1. Why would the cartel need the dea to tell them where he's at if it was the cartels lawyer they knew where he was at. what they didn't know was he was an informant.

  8. Was there really no security with this guy?!?! WTF. He was a lawyer for Gulf thugs, AND he is cooperating with US govt. Sounds like a good chance of exactly this happening. *sigh*

  9. Turning rat for the feds, is a good enough reason for Mr. Guerrero to get wacked. He was probably giving up information of cartel operations in both countries. He was getting to close for comfort for key cartel leadership. Not good for business. The HSI should have put chapa as far away as possible from the border and changed his identity. Karma is bitch.though. This cat had caused to much harm to many people. He had it coming to him.

  10. Yes, it sounds like a message sent that those who choose to conspire with authorities will meet their demise. Hopefully, the US can send a message right back that those who choose to murder can expect the death penalty.

  11. Anyone any ideaa who leaked? Maybe he had no more secrets to tell all his old bosses locked up, or maybe he had a lot secrets to tell about USA agencies, and they SOLD him out? Eaither way they gave him up. If CDS had never tried to take N.Laredo . Z would never had to reclute a bunch cholos,coke/crystal heads, that are running it now. They were the true professionales . But CDS, DEA/ CIA, and the elite corrupt politicos dont want to share that enchilada. Cds needsmore putas and trucks,DEA needs money to wage war against its own people, and CIA wants to invade countries using drug money.( Venezuela ) As long as Mexico gives the USA oil contracts favorables to Texan companies ,it would be the same caca. I hear some A ,CIA, and some military advisors have become very proffecient at dancing salsa , More than 2 decades there and coke still gets here by the TONS. By the way when was the last time usa law cops actually caught a ton or at least half a ton? Anyone?

    1. They just had a 150 pound crystal meth bust from mexicans. This was in polk county, florida. That's not tons but they're not gunna find tons. Once the large shipments cross the border they get dispersed into smaller loads to multiple cities and states. A big bust like that would really only happen in border towns in texas, arizona, etc.

  13. "It was unclear if his role as an informant may have leaked to the cartel"

    Unclear? ... it is crystal clear - como no podía ser de otra manera? when you decide to become an informant, you are a throw-away item. neither side cares about su existencia.

  15. May 31, 2013 at 3:00 PM nope, that´s not a message, just solving a problem, a message would have been more brutal, with public display and a video or a written message...not in the US though, bad for business

  17. the cartels are the defacto authority in most vital Mexican cities, so what! the Mexican gov is:

    A: in bed with the narcos, therefore Mexico is fucked.

    B: the Mexican gov is weak and has no power to enforce laws and fight corruption, therefore Mexcio is fucked.

    C: Greed and corruption is so rampant and intertwined within Mexican DNA that all heads of local and State are easily corrupted, therefore Mexci is fucked!

    D: all of the above therefore Mexico is fucked!

  24. thing is, when you deal with these types, there isn't much rule of law, if someone just whispers it in the wrong company, word travels fast, but yes id say as soon as the trials wrapped up, they thought he was probably up to something, they had too much knowledge of dealings, then, sure as shit,they eliminated others to seal up a leak

  26. come on a mexican citizen cant live in usa with out get deported. maybe he was mexican-american. but when the government say he was mexican the american citizen say´s oh was a mexican thats a relief

  27. The formula for 'snitch' is given in this article. Any Mexican citizen in a position where he has access to cartel information and lives in the U.S. 'legally'' should worry that his cover may run thin. All Jr. U.S. Agents should meet their informants for lunch in a public place so that they can feel the vulnerability that the snitch has.

  30. Rats were put on earth for a reason. Population control on other rats. They're all rats. So a rat that rats on another rat is no different that the rat getting ratted on. Good for him and great for those of us that want them all dead! To hell with all rats!!

    1. Exactly. His men took over our little community La Azucar Tamp. There was a mass exodus from the locals. You can't recognize any faces anymore and don't dare going into our little ranch. Nobody has ever mentioned la Azucar. It's south of Camargo Tamps!

  36. Snitch wanting it both ways. Why do parasite's always think their the one that will get away with it. I will bet the snitch has no one crying his loss at homeland. Not that I am for criminals, but I am for loyalty in no matter what you do, and someone who sells others out for money or anything else needs to pay and pay harsh for it. Rat's eat Rat's shit.
