La Barbie’s In-Law Pleads Guilty and Shares Secrets

Chivis Martínez for Borderland Beat
 
The attention to the apprehension of Miguel Treviño Morales, a.k.a Z40, brings to mind another high profile capture that has faded from the headlines.   Since his 2010 capture the  American born narco boss, Edgar “La Barbie” Valdez, has been sitting in Mexico’s supermax prison; Altiplano No1 in Almoloya de Juarez, in the state of Mexico. 

Altiplano No.1 is the same prison that Treviño now occupies.  It is the only prison in Mexico globally recognized as a true supermax prison, there has never been a successful prison break from No.1. 
It has been three years when the Texas born capo was captured in August 2010, in a rural area outside Mexico City.  AT the time of his capture, Valdez, 39, was with his teenaged wife, daughter of Carlos Montemayor González, 39, a.k.a., El Charro (photo at left).  Valdez' was another capture of a high profile narco, sans gunfire.

The dual citizenship holder, Mexican-American Valdez was born and raised in Laredo, Texas, who became involved with the enforcer group “Los Negros”, the group worked for the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel (BLO)  under the leadership of Arturo Beltrán Leyva.  Valdez rose to the top of Los Negros and its leadership by the time Arturo Beltrán Leyva, leader of BLO was killed in 2009. 
After the death of Arturo Beltrán, Valdez fought a bloody, prolonged war for control of the cartel that resulted in over 150 deaths.  Valdez is accredited with employing methods of terror such as video-taping torture and decapitations.  He is accredited with being the first to video tape decapitations and release the footage to the public.  The videos found their way to narco blogs and other social media outlets.
After the arrest of Valdez, his group collapsed by 2011.
The peculiar behavior of Valdez, subsequent to his arrest, caused for speculation that he turned himself in and had cut a deal with Mexico, the US or both.  The narco-polo wearing capo was exhibiting  an “'I've got a secret” grin,  that at times, even in his perp presentation, would cause him to bow his head from a fit of the  giggles. 

The extradition request from the United States appears to be in limbo, and it is uncertain how the new administration of Enrique Peña Nieto will handle the request.  Since charges are pending in both nations, he could be tried sequentially. Thereby, if convicted in one country, after serving his sentence, being extradited to the other, another trial and another possible prison sentence. 

It was thought his extradition was imminent in fall of 2012, at which time Valdez wrote a rambling letter declaring his detention was the result of "political persecution" by then president Calderon.  Further he claimed that Calderon had called for a meeting with various cartels.
Valdez is being represented by the prominent Houston attorney, Kent Schaffer who has expressed concern for the security of his client,  especially while he is held in Mexico.   He has been held in a one man cell. 

Some information about the interworking’s of the Valdez operation was revealed last week when Juan Montemayor, 47,  pled guilty to U.S. federal charges of cocaine trafficking.  Juan is the brother of Valdez’ father-in-law Carlos.  Juan served as the primary contact person for one of the more significant U.S. customers, Manuel Coronado Espindola, of Atlanta Georgia.

Juan’s plea document traces wiretaps, the operation of Valdez and his transition from a local dealer in Laredo to his move into Mexico where he became a major player in the Mexican drug war.

  9. Wtf Does somebody have it out for the Villareals. They seem to get caught or killed in recent years-as far as the major Capps is concerned : Edgar "la Barbie" Valdez- Villarreal, Sergio "el King Kong or Grande" Villarreal Barragan, Ignacio "Nacho" Coronel Villarreal, and Miguel 'el Gringo" Villarreal. That's not even counting the arrest of the father, and seizure of millions, of Reynosa mayor Everardo Villarreal by the FBI in Texas.

    As far as narcos utilizing the social networks to promote cartel propaganda-let's remember who invented the internet : the U.S. Military(Army). The NSA is an agency of the Pentagon. That makes sense. Who would know better how to spy on citizens computer equipment/devices info. than the people who invented what carries the info.

    1. So It's just a coincidence that these people have similiar last names and even more of a coincidence that they happen to be drug traffickers. I don't think its a coincidence. I think these people have common bloodlines and somewhere along the way are related to each other. Just like most of the major drug cartel heads families are from or have roots in Sinaloa : Guzman, Zambada, Carrillo Fuentes.Arellano Felix, Beltran Leyva, Gitano Villarreal. I read an article from another narco blog where it explained how a lot of people in Mexico come from the same city, Altala Comulco-adjacent to DF, and for the most part are related to each other through bloodlines. But then again so are the powerful people of the U.S., Obama and Bush's are related to each other and the queen of England through bloodlines, and the rest of the world. The world power structure is set folks. DON''T BELIEVE THE HYPE!!! What's so dumbass about the U.S. Army inventing the INTERNET. If the U.S.A. can have the most lethal armored division in the world, and the most lethal nuclear arsenal - it can invent the INTERNET.

  15. i doubt la barbie has millions stashed away. with the amount of money they have to pay in bribes, they have to keep dealing drugs in order to keep the politicians and corrupt cops off their asses. great job as always chivis

  18. If you're a dope dealer in Houston, Schaffer and Deguerin are your go to guys. They run circles around prosecutors and have no shame telling you what it takes to make "problems" go away...
