San Diego: Tijuana trafficker texted images of torture & murder

San Diego: Tijuana trafficker texted pictures of torture and murder

Juan Castro Navarro, 43, of Culiacan Sinaloa was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for methamphetamine & heroin trafficking, through Tijuana to California, Utah and Washington.  Castro Navarro pled guilty to distributing over 40 pounds of methamphetamine, in January of 2015. 

Prosecutors describe Castro-Navarro as a broker, who connected wholesale drug contacts in Tijuana and Sinaloa with customers in the United States, who often arranged transportation and importation of the product through the Tijuana border.  Castro-Navarro recieved a sentence enhancement of 5 years, after the US Attorney successfully displayed  evidence Castro-Navarro's violence, including torture and several killings.  The killings took place in Tijuana to Mexican citizens, therefore the US Attorney's office in San Diego didn't charge Castro Navarro with these offenses. 

However, through court docs, a Tijuana newspaper, and intercepted text messages and images they recreated the kidnapping and eventual murders of men who stole from the drug trafficking group. According to prosectors, from an Ontario, California stash house members of the trafficking group transported 10 pounds of meth to Los Angeles, where the load was ripped off by the customer, a gang member named David.  

The traffickers then kidnapped associated of David in Tijuana, in order to recover the load, and punish the offenders.  It was during these days when 'J' (Castro Navarro, likely his PIN name) sent images of the torture.  J sent an image of a man in jeans and a blue sweatshirt tied to a chair, to his associates, and his girlfriend, whom he told he was 'working', and 'not to worry', along with instructions to delete the images.  She replied 'What is this? Are you ok? Thank god. I love you with all my heart". 

J sent further images detailing beating and suffocation, with a green plastic bag, and a baseball bat. As well as images of bruises all over the victims body.  J allegedly told an associate he hadn't killed him yet, because he is going to bring 20 units, (pounds of meth).  "Did you beat him or choke him"?  Another associate asked Navarro, 'the second' he replied.  The associate texting a winking emoji to end the conversation.  

The body of the man was found on January 23rd in Tijuana, wearing the same clothes as the text message images.  Prosectors used the messages and a news story from Tijuana to convince the judge, who called Castro-Navarro a 'monster'.  HSI started investigating the Castro-Navarro group in spring of 2013, eventually applying for title III wiretap intercepts in the late months of 2013.  

"I love you guys, and I'm only going to kill one more, I have never killed anyone who didn't deserve it", was another intercepted message.

  3. Y would u steal 10 pounds of meth from dto's knowing full well that they're gonna kill ur friends n family members. So I'm guessing the gang member David got away with it even though his friends took the punishments

  4. In case of need, kill, it gets you 5 year enhancement;)
    --Drug trafficking without authorization, without paying piso or plaza to other cartels or stealing gets you torture and murder...
    --and when you steal from the real or the designated owners like pablo escobar and co or manuel noriega or el negro durazo, your partners will kill you or put you in prison after hunting you like a dog...

    2. I'm not a teacher by any means but even I can see how it will take radical changes in the way we think and feel in order to bring the average person close to this level of awareness. I used to be incredulous that our governments would ever intentionally wish to damage and hurt people and then be able to do so and get away with it - especially after our allied governments were victorious in WW2 and bearing in mind the scars the "Nazi era" produced in our social psyche. I used to wonder what they would have to gain; I thought "surely no legitimate rulers could be that short-sighted, condemning entire generations just to perpetuate their own power and take more wealth for themselves?". I realised if that is what our Godless "education" leads to, then I wanted no part in spreading it whatsoever. I had to "de-educate" myself in order to work out how little our governments and rulers care about us. I had to think the unthinkable. For someone like me to inspire others to try working out any solutions to this mess would be almost impossible. We need to become aware of the differences between the way we regard "society" (ie. government, work, education etc.) and "other people" (ie. those around us), we need to look at the part we play in other peoples' lives and take responsibility as a whole for things that hurt and damage others. As soon as a government, or we ourselves, alienate and differentiate negatively those around us from "society" then evil and corruption is empowered. When rulers or society teach one group to hate another - and when searching for truth becomes separated from legitimate "education" - genocide becomes possible, if not inevitable. We need to educate the educators. And we need a Miracle.

    4. Weell, since there is nothing free anywhere, bill and Melinda gates foundation a nonprofit, has to make profit, (not that they "need" it) and since it is hard to keep monopolizing computers and info-tech, privatizing education seems like THE OPTION...
      --they have to stick it to the government, after all they OWN IT...
      --The new education will formalize capitalist jesus and legitimize vulture capitalism, at last, they are seeing their promised land, full of private property rights for themselves and authoritarian austerity socialized for the poor and the downthrodden who have to take responsibility for themselves and their sorry arses, saving them from "communism" was/is all they gonna get from their masters, should be a good start...
