Miguel Trevino Morales "40," detained leader of Los Zetas, designated as one of the most bloodthirsty men in the history of drug trafficking, told a judge in August that he is only a farmer who earns 40 thousand pesos a month and feared for himself in prison.
"I don't belong to any criminal organization, I am dedicated to agriculture," Z-40 told Roberto Hoyos Aponte, sixth district judge at the Federal prison in Toluca, taken from a report filed on the August 19 proceeding, in the criminal case 110/2013. "I am farmer, I am not interested in illegal things, I am dedicated to agriculture,'' reiterated judge. This subject was born June 28,1973 in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, and he cut short his high school studies.
The alleged drug trafficker, is known inside as "El Mike," his alias and doesn't belong to any indigenous group, told judicial authorities. He has no vices: he doesn't gamble, drink alcoholic drinks, smoke cigarettes or do drugs.
"The day he was arrested he was in a normal state," said a telegram sent by a court clerk of the prevention and Social rehabilitation penal facility. He is the son of Rodolfo Treviño Arroyo, deceased, and Maria Arcelia Morales Martínez, "El Z-40" says he has income of 40 thousand pesos a month from his work in the agricultural sector and has 5 financial dependents, his wife from a common-law union and 4 children.
Noting his physical details, Treviño has two tattoos, one on the right forearm with the figure of a cobra, and the other on the back of the neck, in the form of a painting, with the logo 'Hecho enMexico.
For the criminal who the Federal government, attributes hundreds of deaths in the last decade, it is remarkable that alleged leader of Los Zetas doesn't have a single scar, as referenced in the documents.
What he does seem to have is fear that something will happen to him during his confinement occurs in the Federal Criminal Jail of Altiplano and he worries about Salvador Martinez Escobedo "La Ardilla," his former lieutenant, with whom he had a dispute over a woman. "In this center they have us separated, because here it has been heard that he is mad and will do something," he said.
