"Junior Cortez" Rumored Killed in Internal War Within the Gulf Cartel


As reported by Chivis, the city of Reynosa, Tamaulipas is experiencing a number of shootouts and blockades.  While the full situation is still developing, it appears that recent tensions within Los Metros faction of the Gulf Cartel has reached a breaking point and a state of all out warfare has started anew.

Reports are emerging that Sergio "Junior Cortez" Ortegón and three bodyguards were killed by the forces of "El Gafe", specifically, those under the command of Alberto "Guero Cleofas" Martinez Gutierrez.  This is said to have happened around the colonias of Vista Hermosa and Portillo, near Pavón park behind the Soriana Morelos, where "Junior Cortez" was struck twice in the chest by an AR-15.

Update on 8-22-14: It has been more recently reported that another notable person, "El Chiricuas", was killed.  Also known as "El Metro 85", "El Chiricuas" was a close ally of "Junior Cortez" and has been previously reported as the sector commander of the Centro zone of Reynosa.  There are also rumors that although "Junior Cortez" was shot, he managed to escape alive.
                                   
Background Information
"Junior Cortez", also known as "C2", is often confused in reports with his father who also uses the alias "Cortez".  The senior "Cortez", Sergio Ortegón Silva, is also known as "C1" and "El Loco" and is leader of the group "Los Ceros".  He is a long time member of the Gulf Cartel, going back to possibly twenty years.  Past rumors indicated that senior "Cortez" had a falling out with Héctor "El Metro 4" Delgado Santiago, which led to "El Metro 4" being killed on January 15, 2013.

"Junior Cortez" was said to have been an ally of Miguel "El Gringo" Villarreal and Jesús "El Puma" García Román, who were both killed on March 10, 2013 in a purge ordered by Mario Armando "X20" Ramírez Treviño and said to have been carried out by the senior "Cortez".  It was further said the senior "Cortez" was able to convince "X20" to spare the life of his son, as "Junior Cortez" did not provide aid to "El Gringo" once the fighting started.

In April of this year, Juan Manuel "Juan Perro" Rodríguez García led a purge of forces loyal to Juan Fransisco "El Paquito" Martinez, who was plaza head of Reynosa.  It was rumored that "El Paquito" then went into hiding in southern Texas to escape death, though his lieutenant, "El Gafe", stayed, and took control of the Reynosa plaza.  "El Gafe" is a mysterious individual, with little said about him besides the rumor that he was once a bodyguard for "El Metro 4".

Following the purge of "El Paquito", "Junior Cortez" was mentioned as plaza head of Diaz Ordaz and the senior "Cortez" as a possible sector commander in Reynosa, though other information placed "Junior Cortez" as in charge of the Pharr bridge area in Reynosa. 

Things seemed calm for a while, though it was unclear if it was due to a truce between "Juan Perro" and "El Gafe", or if both forces were merely regrouping.

Regardless, on June 26, Federal Police were ambushed in Ejido Periquitos.  It was said that the area was under the control of "Junior Cortez" and that his people were behind the attack, along with kidnappings and killings of innocent people.  The forces of "El Gafe" warned that such action would not be tolerated and suspected that "Junior Cortez" and his father were attempting to seize power by destabilizing "El Gafe".

In the following days, it became clear that an alliance of father and son "Cortez", Guadalupe "El Tachas" Leal Flores, and Jesús Alejandro "El Simple" Leal Flores, had been formed to overthrow "El Gafe".  It was further reported that "Junior Cortez" controlled the colonias of Delicias, Unidad Obrera, Laguna, Lazaro Cardenas, and Loma Blanca. 

At the time it was also said that "El Guero Cleofas" was part of this alliance, as he had been arrested and thought "El Gafe" had betrayed him, but in light of recent news it is uncertain if this report was a mistake or if he later changed sides, possibly convinced that "El Gafe" was not behind his arrest. 

On June 29, "El Gafe" was said to have been shot in a failed assignation attempt.  It is unclear what happened to "El Gafe" thereafter, though recent information implies that the power of "El Gafe" over Reynosa would become somewhat diminished.  It is possible that "El Gafe" retreated from Reynosa and/or had to recover from his injuries.

On the morning of August 8 there was a number of blockades in Reynosa as federal forces made an unsuccessful attempt at arrest the senior "Cortez". 

A letter appeared online on August 17 denouncing recent actions by "Junior Cortez" to increase his power in Reynosa and asking for the return of "El Paquito" and "El Gafe".  In light of the killing of "Junior Cortez", it seems that this was all a pretext. 

Conclusion
It is very likely that the senior "Cortez" will seek vengeance for the death of his son and his allies will counterattack the forces of "El Gafe", who, quite possibly, is welcoming the return of "El Paquito".  The entire area under the control of Los Metros is currently under high alert as cartel vehicles are being mobilized for attacks and counterattacks.

  20. Seems since Osiel went down CDG has been in turmoil.
    There has never been a leader that truly unified CDG after osiel. As Plaza heads are arrested or killed there is no clear second in command to take the leadership and infighting ensues.
    Not very intelligent! However, that is to be expected with Narcos!

  25. This is the result of a lack of strong leadership. And whoever killed el metro who was a respected and loved leader of reynosa is at fault here. When you betray a good leader bad shit always follows. Matamoros the cdg premier plaza and seat of power has its troubles but nothing like this.

  26. puro paletero/tamalero vs carwasher/taquero combos fighting like hungry bitches for the gramero market "plaza", all the spilled blood will keep them fighting forever, how is that about reaping what you sow?
    the big money is in traffickng to the US, but that side has OWNERS, so all these motherfuckers have is the mexican little town tianguis to operate and extort, with diversified piratized goods from china, two peso whoring, one peso teiboleras, kidnap for cinco pesos, they learned it from the zetas!!!

  27. It is not just cdg with many cells , every cartel in a different county usually are called by a cell name not by cartel name . And all those fools saying zetas will come and try to take turf now that cdg is fighting , sucks to break it to u all , cdg had been fighting with itself since 09 10 and zetas couldn't wipe them out . If zetas would think about invading cdg turf now or anytime soon would be suicide because with all the Feds and military right now it would go real bad for zetas and no matter how much infighting , they all hate zetas equally

      That right there sets the tone.
      Always been treachery in the ranks. Reynosa has always seen and lived in Warfare.. CDG are shady backstabbing bunch..
      They created the ZETAS go figure!!

    3. The CDG haven't been wiped out but they have been forced to operate in their home state only. CDG USE to have the entire East coast of Mexico before the split. The only reason the Zetas didn't wipe them out was b/c they were fighting CDS and LFM also.

  28. If CDG continues killing each other the Zetas will move in and nobody wants that!

  31. Currently the areas were Los Metros have influence which is Reynosa, Ribereña, and Frontera Chica, are in a state of tension. Comandante Gafe or El 77 (used to be bodyguard of Metro 4) reportedly killed Junior Cortez and this lead to short gun battles. From what I have read Gafe is being supported by Los Metros because when the war started against Los Zetas Gafe was in the frontline fighting. Some of the CDG commanders that are involved in the conflict are Panochitas (Metro 103) and Paquito.
    After the death of Metro 3, Metro 4, and the capture of El Simple (Metro 24) Los Metros have been killing each other ever since.
    However, Los Zetas have also experienced tensions between the Zetas from Nuevo Laredo and Ciudad Victoria. All the orders that the Zetas get come from Nuevo Laredo, but the Zetas from Ciudad Victoria who are loyal to Comandante Lazcano do not like to get orders from anybody outside of Victoria.

    2. It's easy to talk tough when you are a cyber sicario. Los Zetas are the only cartel that I know who has fought four rivals at the same time. Los Zetas kept CDG relevant when Chapo made his move to the east. Just because you love to hate them 3:13 doesn't mean they are a joke. CDG don't have the federation to back them anymore so we'll see how long they last.

  45. The photo of the chrysler 300 apears to show an infrared headlight affixed to the front of the car. It has a very dark voilet lens that appears like black glass. The light that shines out in not easily detectable by the naked eye but illuminates well for someone driving and wearing night vision goggles. Verry interestiing! Driving slow with NVG's is not too bad but driving fast with them would be scary for the occupants as well as any one else near the road. Unfortunatly stealthy driving does not make one bulletproof.

  46. It's a stock headlamp. Google a pic. These guys on the street with a machine aren't that smart. The smart guys are the guys in suits dealing the tons of cocaine making the real money in the cartel while these street thugs kill each other to protect a grammero

    1. @1:13 A.M., I speculate that the single dark lens seen in rhe lower grill of the car is an I.R. lamp. I did not Google anything. My specularion is based on my long military career and experience. I i have maintaned and operated many vehicles equiped with such lights and have experience driving with their use. I stand by my speculation of the picture but am willing ro view a specific link that might explain the single light with the very dark colored lens seen in the lower grill.

    The only reason the Gulf Cartel was able to kill a "supposed" comandante in Zacatecas is because of Talibans people. Heck the only reason the CDG was able to even step foot in Zacatecas was because of Talibans people who were originally Zetas but just shipped when Taliban went to war against the Z.
    Look man I know the CDG is probably your favorite cartel from what I can tell because of your post, but anyways they are just a former shade of themselves. They ain't what they were pre-rupture 2010. They are a joke now-a-days and the biggest hypocrites along with the Caballero Templarios. In the end of the day FUCK ALL CARTELS y me la pelan.

  49. the only reason el taliban left, is he was sick of getting short-changed by z40, even before lazcano got killed he was working on his move to split, el lazca really got lazy when he put z40 in charge of judazing his zeta brothers on top of robbing all the company money...
