The “Niños Sicarios” Who Behead, Use Drugs and Work for the Narcos



Members of the South Pacific Cartel, most of who are aged 12 to 23

By: Hugo Guzmán Rambaldi

Between 2012 and 2013, only the Mexican Army detained 473 minors, 61 of them girls, for being part of drug gangs and organized crime.  These are the “niño sicarios”, who are capable of killing with a firearm or by cutting them, beheading, transferring drugs and drug money, consuming drugs, and making many women and teens become sex slaves.



According to information from the Network for the Rights of Children in Mexico (Red por los Derechos de la Infancia de Mexico), the average age of the “niños sicarios” is 13 years and the Public Safety Committee of the Chamber of Deputies of the country revealed that there are 30,000 underage children who are engaged in drug trafficking, kidnapping, extortion, smuggling, piracy, and murder.  The kids, according to reports from public and private agencies, can earn between $1-3,000 a month, although some even receive this amount by committing one or more crimes.  There are reports that they can be paid between $150 and $200 a week just by collecting information on the movement of the police and the army, and also by delivering data on gangs or rival groups.


It is one of the realities imposed by the expansion of the drug cartels, organized crime gangs (Which among other activities they practice kidnappings), and groups of smugglers (In Mexico there is a widespread smuggling network of stolen cars, for example).

The thousands of children involved in these criminal networks are from poor provinces (states) of Mexico, from rural areas, they belong to families that make up more than 80% of the poor in this nation of around 110 million inhabitants and many live through the domestic violence occurring, the abandonment, and even becoming orphans.

The drug dealers and gang leaders offer them money that allows minors to help their families out or simply run away from home and start a new life.  A factor that influences this decision is that under Mexican law, a minor cannot be sentenced to jail for more than three years.


A report from Infancia en Movimiento (Children in Motion) indicates that in recent years the arrest of minors for serious crimes increased by 34% and that 70% of arrests were related to killings, abductions, torture, drug trafficking, theft, and severe injury.

It comes to a point where at national and international levels they are already famous, El Ponchis, Gloria, Erick, El Cris, Las Chavelas, for their criminal actions such as beheading, their leadership among boys captured by the narcos and their recruitment capabilities.

Erick, 15 (L) & Giovanni Molina Ortiz (R), 18
On this last week of November 2013, one of the most dramatic cases of the “niños sicarios” rose in the media.  El Ponchis was liberated.  He was arrested in December 2010 when he was 14, accused of beheading and hanging four men, convicted of murder, ties to organized crime and possession of drugs.  On top of that, he is also accused of causing serious injury to people who he attacked with firearms and by cutting them.  A criminal record of this extent would be reserved for an adult man with experience in executing crimes, but El Ponchis was only 14 years old.


According to Mexican law, the boy, Edgar, could only be sentenced to three years in prison.  He has now been released from prison after having fulfilled his time.  A unique part of this tragedy is that El Ponchis was sent to the United States because he was born there and his closest relatives live there.  At this point, this youth should be in the hands of specialized staff of Outcry in the Barrio, an organization that serves children who are in the same situations such as El Ponchis.

Siblings: Elizabeth (L) and Oliva Jimenez Lugo (R), aka 'Las Chavelas', sisters of Edgar Jimenez Lugo
His sisters, incidentally, followed the same path because in the times that El Ponchis committed crimes, he had strong ties with leaders and lieutenants of drug traffickers and organized crime groups.  They had been “sex servants” for criminals and they also performed other criminal activities.  Press reports tell that Isabel, one of the sisters, was the girlfriend of Jesus Radilla “El Negro”, leader of the sicarios of the South Pacific Cartel.

The future of El Ponchis is unpredictable in the United States, even more the future of the thousands of children and teenagers who are still part of cartels and organized crime carrying out cruel criminal activities.

  2. 10:23 What is needed is gallows to hang the people that corrupt these minors,we do not see the adults that can be prosecuted anywhere, except for the brother in law of el ponchis,Jesus radilla, most of these minors with talk and tell who are their handlers,if they have been abused by sending them to commit their adult crimes,the adults behind them need to pay for them.
    The police know it all but they are corrupt,same thing all over the government including the cowardly legislators...

  3. What a great idea for a flick: a Chucky Cheese filled with niños sicarios ... everything needed for the script is there: the characters, the stories, the drama, the horror, the setting ... sure to cause an outrage ... but if made a little bit artsy fartsy will win prizes with producers, directors and actors toasting in champagne over depicting the tradegy of lost childhoods ... great opportunity I tel ya all!

  5. I'm afraid that Mexico is going to have to do what so many other country's have done in the face of youth being so out of control. Either the government or public is going to have to do is basically seek out and euthanize these deviants because as with so many countries in world there is no real money to rehabilitate these youth and those who live in the pretend world think that these kids can be rehabilitated in the present state of affairs need to be silenced by the truth. There have been some example's of groups going out and cleaning up the streets of criminals and in these places there have been declines in crime. It's really coming to a point of no return and tough decisions are going to have to be made and compassion, which these criminals lack, should be somethings that is given to the victims of these criminal deviants and not them. One must put aside that fact of age and act accordingly, which is the freedom for all people's to feel secure when walking the streets.

    1. 3:19 6:54 the Brazilian police tried that, killing the "ratas de la ciudad" worked until they got caught.
      Parenthood really should be forbidden if people are not ready for it,other than that, the corruptors are the ones that should be hunted and exterminated,they rely on the impunity the minors can get,thereby making fools of society and the authorities.
      The crooks need to understand that no mercy will be there for their crimes.
      I have seen Gloria trevi again on TV, surrounded by very young girls and boys, like nothing ever happened,no doubt, televisa and Mexican government executives like their very fine bottles of Champaign.
      As they are called by pederastas "el gober precioso and his egiptian friends,gamboa patron,and other Mexican businessmen and politicians who can't do without young meat

  10. speaking of bitcoin. I suggested to my family they all invest in bitcoin even short term after silk road had it down in the 30s. China put it on their stock exchange and Chinese banks using it for currency.

    this week it topped at 1211 a share.

    BUT china restrict bitcoin use today

  11. out of those seven Ninos in that picture ... six will probably die in the next couple of years. But the seventh one ... ahhh the Seventh Nino ... he will go on to become a full-fledged professional sicario of the future. and THAT will be a MAJOR problem for Mexico - and the whole world. Because he will have already murdered and chopped heads before his 21'st birthday. And that was just the start of his education in life. you see why this is a problem??

  14. Im in full aggrement that these Jr. "Killers" are too far gone to rehabilitate them. having been in combat I know from experiance that Once you've taken out a human being; there's No Going Back to being a touchy feely human being, Your now of the mindset that it's me or him (End of Story) ! So if you think these teenage murderers are now going to be content working at Mc Donalds for a measly "Minimum Wage Job" then you also believe in Santa Claus !

  15. Young criminals,should be held until they reach the age to be tried as adults then go to adult prison,not release the poor guys when they reach adult age,the only way to draw a lighter sentence is to SNITCH,yes SNITCH,and bring down their corruptors.
    I don't know why,I find killing humans,repugnant, doing it with their pedestrian methods,even more so,but some people relish the idea,and go on to a life full of satisfactions killing to their heart's content.
    Assuring retribution to corruptors of minors is the very least that their victims deserve,unless the business is so good for the Mexican legislators and government,of course,who else?

  21. What i love for the years i lived in diff parts of mexico was when a guy was like "that guys a sicario" like all bow downish and just cause the got a name AKA a job that consists of killing kidnapping and security related stuff for their group... I as a outsider was taking the concept like oh these guys are special an everyone should bow down pay respect, well guess what where i come from in a major city in a diff country we all are sicarios except we are our own bosses and we dont have a cute little name that basically says im from a land of no real oppertunity and i cant make money not good money legally anywhere so give me a walkie talkine a stolen car maybe a pistol and let me make way more money than avg person in this country and have clothes that are nice good drugs nice cellphone and blow money cause daily i put my life on the line for people that cant even pay me on time 75% of the time im left waiting 1-4 weeks and im supposed to get paid once every four weeks , but its ok cuz my bosses underlings will slide me a 500 peso bill here an there so im not crying to hard about the money being late, then not to mention i gotta follow rules, jump when they say, but its ok cuz everyone in my town sees me an knows what i do... An they fear me or respect ... Thats up for debate.. But i only did it cause im to lazy to work like most men in town do plus the pays great when it comes and i get a semi rusted never been oiled .38 super pistol with 1or2 clips like 24 bullets and i walk around showing it off hangin out my pants walkie talkie clipped on my chest from my man purse i wear with charges an maybe a few bullets a 300 peso bag of coca cola some green look at me im awesome all for depending on size an power of cartel 10,000 and up pesos monthly...but alone with no guns no walkie talkie to summon help most of them are just avg people young people who cant box their way outta a wet paper bag... But give em an AR-15 the weakest but most popular rifle in mex an they got balls of steal... Why is AR-15 so popular its bullet the part that actually comes outta gun an hits target is only a hair bigger than a .22 caliber .22 is .220 AR-15 is i think .223 and is the cheapest rifle in usa so its popular in mex cuz its light weight the buyers on usa side make a ton off selling em to smugglers cuz they are so cheap they just look cool and since it can rapid fire any uneducated kid is like i want that... HERES A SECRET MEXICO IF YOU WANNA WIN A GUN FIGHT BUY RUSSIAN MADE AK47 OR SOON THE AK74-75 and M-16 & M-4 & M-1 ... Google weapons used by usa military and find civilian form but god stop paying 18,000 pesos for a 399.99 dollar gun thats made in some country ive never heard of .. Most people in usa buy ar15 for rabbits an other animals screwing there land up or farmers. AR15 =armalite15 the brand thats where ar comes from...

  23. I'm glad this kid beheads these scumbags. That must suck to get taken out by a 13 year old. What a fitting end for some piece of shit loser to get their head cut off by a kid and then the video uploaded to YouTube for the whole world to laugh at some dumbfuck. I saw it, loved it, it's one of my favorites. You should all be applauding this hero for taking out the trash Mexican style then walking away scott-free. I hope he runs for president since we "know" for sure he's a real citizen. He's got my vote.
