Rosarito Beach: El Veneno executed
As summer bears down on Tijuana and Rosarito Beach, killings continue to escalate. Days after a Tijuana based Achilles cell was arrested in Rosarito Beach, a local leader of retail sales was killed.
Eduardo Garcia Perez, 'El Veneno' was executed Friday June 5, in Playas De Rosarito, shot 4 times in the head.
Unofficial reports link 'El Veneno' to Achilles, and it's reasonable to think this was retaliation by Arellano Felix cells, united under Cartel Nueva De Tijuana.
This took place on the Streets of Leonard and Roca Mar in the 'Delfin' area of Rosarito Beach, a popular tourist attraction. Since 2008, Rosarito has seen a drastic decrease in tourism, as the scenic, iconic beaches became a bloody contested plaza, as groups allied with El Teo and El Inge vied for power. Years later, it seems little as changed.
