The fall of M1 Manuel Torres Felix "El Ondeado", his history and his death

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat

[ Subject Matter: Manuel Torres Felix, Sinaloa Cartel
Recommendation: See link to article on psychopaths]



This is the testimony of "El Ondeado" that I have pieced together previous BB reports from Havana Pura, and Un Vato, and  from different narco media including all the usual sources after a request was made in the comments section.

It was the Office of Control of Foreigners that put the mark on him, since 1st of June of 2011, the "black list" of foreign narco traffickers, the kingpin law where there are only two ways to leave, either dead or prison, there is no way to escape the USA government, they will get you sooner or later if you are on the list.

From this time forward, it was known that he was in Salto de mata, in the Valle de San Lorenzo zone, where since February of 2012 the Army and Marines had launched several operations.

Manuel Torres Felix, according to the OFAC, was born on 28th of February 1958 in Cosala, possibly in Llano de los Refugio. ( the same area the recent search for El Chapo Guzman went on).

Two years older than his brother Javier Torres Felix "El JT", "El Ondeado" never set foot in prison as  opposed to "El JT". arrested pm 27th of January 2004 at his home in the hills of San Miguel. Javier was arrested two more times: in California in 1992 and in Cancun in 1994.




Javier was extradited to the United States in 2006 and was sentenced to eight years in prison. On the 13th of March 2013 he left prison and was deported back to Mexico, where he was re-apprehended and now is in prison.

Before he died he felt two great losses, two friends like family, and two of his sons were executed in the war the CDS waged against the Beltran Levya Organization.

In Sinaloa, Manuel Torres had ascended to financier of the armed wing of the Sinaloa Cartel "Los Antrax", after the rupture that was caused by the detention of Alfredo Beltran Leyva "El Mochomo", and the violent vendetta with Arturo Beltran "El Barbas".

First was the attack against Joel Torres Jimenez, son of "El JT", in a billiard hall in Guadalupe Victoria, that opened war between them.

On the 18th of August, with the assassination in Montebello of Atanasio Torres Acosta, and the assassination of Joaquin Guzman Loeras son that ended the conflict and soon the streets of Culiacan were once again relatively peaceful.

After that "El Barbas" referred to "Ondeado" in mantas left with beheaded corpses, Manuel Torres was "M-1", he became "El Ondeado", dozens of corpses littered the streets of the capital, with his new nickname, warring against "El Barbas".

On the 20th of September 2008, when the Army released to the media a photograph of him and his nephew Misael Torres Urrea, M2, the image of him became popular in social networks and narco corrido compositions.



The image had been discovered in the ranch of "El Carrizal", where arms and munitions had been confiscated. In spring of 2010, in the middle of the elections, Manuel and Ismael Zambada became in-laws when a son of "El Mayo", married a daughter of "M1".

Yasira Esmeralda Torres Sanchez a daughter of M1


He became one of the most sought after criminals by OFAC and the PGR. In February of 2012, a military operation was carried out in La Higuera de El Salado, where they were allegedly going for him. In March there was speculation about the death of "El Fantasma" ( x2), shot by the Military in Oso Viejo. There in that area, Ondeado met his end, with his last weapon, blue pants with a white leather belt.


There was no band or parting shots, there were excesses, except by the Military presence and by the tons of flowers that accompanied him to Humaya Gardens, where the remains of his son Athanasius rested. It was a sober funeral of Manuel Torres, seeming like the goodbye to a good man.

His funeral was far from being one of those of a big capo, in spite of efforts, there were few at his funeral, few in the San Martin de el Zapata, in the Guadalupe Colonia, where the stationed Military check points were surprised by the low influx of mourners, and sent the reserve force to the outskirts of the surrounding area, where they remained vigilant.

The flower shops of the surrounding areas had a huge amount of business, there were arrangements for "El Ondeado", for "M-1", of 500 roses at a cost of 10,000 pesos and other flowers totalling 30,000
pesos, even though it was for slightly less impressive displays.

The service and displays inside the venue concentrated on the family and cost close to 620,000 pesos including his mausoleum.

His favourites


Atanasio Torres Acosta, "El Tachio",

Manuel Torres Felix lived in the mountains. His rage for the BLO grew and was further fueled by the death of one of his sons, Atanasio, in April 2008. These attacks occurred after the breakdown of the Sinaloa Cartel and the struggles against the Beltran Leyva brothers. The attack on his son occurred outside the Health Ministry in the Montebello residential district. "El Tachio" was with his sister and "Ondeado's" sister in law, when hit men from the BLO pulled up and tried to kidnap him.

Once he made it clear he would resist, they opened fire, killing him instantly and wounding his sister in the right arm and shoulder and their sister in law in the left leg. Police located the vehicle used by the Sicarios, inside was an AK47 and a manta that read "from your compadre and his Z nephews, so you will remember, Manuel Torres".


What happened next has been written about by all and sundry, "El Ondeado" previously showed symptoms of being a psychopath. Given his past behavior this is quite credible concerning Manuel Torres Felix, and the death of his son must of driven him over the edge, or did it? "El Tachio" had been involved in drug trafficking from a young age, and as a male Torres Felix he probably had little other choice than to follow his father and uncle into drug trafficking. "El Tachio" knew the risks, was considered a CDS operative, and so his death at the hands of rivals or the police or armed services was a specified risk. As is evidenced by the last list in this article.

The same goes for the death of Joaquin Guzman's son at the hands of the BLO, he was a CDS operative. However, the sister of "El Tachio", Alondra 4 years of age, was shot in the right forearm the bullet exited her arm and embedded itself into her shoulder, she later had her right forearm amputated. One could argue that this attack on a female child of his family, whose innocence is incontestable, actually pushed him over the edge, and turned his psychopathic condition into one with psychosis.

That could explain the complete and utter butchering rampage that he went on a few days after the attack on his son and her sister. He sent out, word has it, all of the Sicario's at his disposal to round up anyone from the BLO or Zetas, and anyone who was deemed to give them support, kidnap them and take them to his ranch, where "El Ondeado" gave vent to his psychosis and sadistically and cruelly tortured everyone rounded up, before killing them.

One of his victims was the municipal police commander Roberto Carlos Barcelo Villagran, who had his back sliced to ribbons with knives, his legs cut off and then his head cut off while he was still alive, his body was dumped with two others in the trunk of a car.



His Sicarios started dumping bodies all over Culiacan, mostly all dismembered with harrowing signs of torture, mostly the dismemberment's happening while they were still alive.

The following is a list of alleged victims of "El Ondeado" the week after the death of his son and in wounding of his sister, those who couldn't be captured for torture were shot or burnt alive:

Some of the victims were dumped at the site of the attack on El Ondeado' son
.
Rarely, confide sources, did "El Ondeado" go to a city, and rarely went beyond Cosala. He knew the Culichi mountains and their surroundings, especially in the South, because his house was there, From there he operated and controlled, in the service of Ismael Zambada Garcia, one of the leaders of the CDS.



Official reports indicate that the Military killed him in an un-inhabited area close to Oso Viejo in the early hours of Saturday the 13th of October. Other sources say they encircled him then moved in to finish him off.

But there are suspicions, not without reason, that unofficial versions give that when the Army got him in their hands he was already dead, that he had other wounds apart from bullets, a skull fracture, as is evident in photographs that circulated in social media.

According to information from Official post mortem of experts from the PGR, registered 6 bullet wounds, entrance and exit wounds in the thorax, one in the abdomen, one in the left arm, another in the left thigh and left lower leg.

The cause of death, was laceration of both lungs, the position of the deceased was supine, though there is no mention of a cranial fracture in the official notes.

The aftermath

After the debacle of "El Lazcas" body being stolen from a funeral business, no chances were taken with the body of "El Ondeado", it was transported under heavy guard and remained so until the legal processes were complete at the Sinaloa Medical Examiners office.



According to the first versions of the facts, some gathered by reporters who arrived at dawn to the Valle de San Lorenzo and some communicated unofficially by the military itself, Manuel Torres, accompanied by a strong group of bodyguards, met up with federal forces and tried to evade them. But they had him surrounded. For several days, special forces, supported by the 9th Military Zone, had seeded personnel throughout the area. At dawn that day, a contingent of soldiers came in through Tacuichamona headed towards Oso Viejo, and a similar force came down from Quila, forming an impassable pincers, even though Torres knew the terrain like the palm of his hand.

The moment they clashed, Manuel Torres got down off the vehicle he was riding and tried to flee through the hills. But he was hit by gunshots. He fell right there.

They took two .38 Super pistols and seven unfired .22 cartridges from him. The Attorney General, Marco Antonio Higuera Gomez, revealed that (Torres) had on him $9,980 dollars and 23,500 pesos, plus portions of a white powder, apparently cocaine.

Although official reports do not mention detainees, RioDoce sources assure (the journal) that there were many.

The Mantas

Four days after his death, three narco mantas appeared in Culiacan, Sinaloa.



"Mayo you left me alone , you always had a plan to fuck me,  equally with Mario Aguirre and Lamberto Verdugo, so that you would meet a work deadline, so they wont fuck you. but I already await you in hell. ATTE. Manuel Torres.

The Narcomantas were found on footbridges on Emiliano Zapata in the vicinity of Lomas Boulevard more at the foot of of "La Lomita" Catholic Church and another by  the Military College on Calzada Heroico. (PME) made quick work of removing the narco mantas from their locations.

There are a few theories about who put up the narco mantas:
  • The BLO/Zeta alliance put them up to sow discord and mistrust among the Sinaloa Cartel
  • That followers of "El Ondeado" put them up
If the BLO/ZETA alliance put them up, that would be credible given previous events like this, the Gulf Cartel among others realize the usefullness of this type of propaganda, and who were on a war footing at the time with the Sinaloa Cartel.

If it was the followers of "El Ondeado" and the manta is true the obvious question is why did "El Mayo" give up "El Ondeado"? or did he give him up at all and what did he stand to gain by it?

There are many theories I have read concerning this, some of them including "El Ondeado" working for the CIA, an insult delivered by "El Ondeado" to a particular woman, there are as many conspiracy theories as their are authors, even "El Mayo" ordering the death of "El Tachio" to infuriate "El Ondeado", this presupposes that "El Mayo" knew that "El Ondeado" would go on a rampage and solve his BLO/Zeta immediate problem.

Given all things, the simplest answer tends to be the correct one.

If I were to favour one simple theory, it would be that after the attack on his family, as his psychopathic condition slipped into psychosis, he went on his rampage. As the bloodbath continued in Culiacan, "El Mayo's" political protection started to run for cover. Mayo then had two choices, get CDS to stop him or pay the Army to do it. I would go with the second option as this can be arranged clandestinely by Mayo.

The third option is that he simply ran into a patrol, and was in the wrong place at the wrong time, or that he was actively searching for anyone he thought responsible for his sons death, halcones had probably tipped him off about Army movement in the area, took it as a slight that they were there on his turf and decided to confront them, as he had done many previous times killing , Federal Police and Military, that when he saw the numbers of the patrol that he decided to retreat, which was cut off by the second claw of the pincer and was shot in the back trying to escape in the same manner that "El Lazca" met his end.

If he had opened fire on the Army, and they returned fire and shot him, a soldier may well have struck him with a rifle butt on the head, this is a common reaction among soldiers that I have witnessed first hand and is an instinctive reaction. This could explain the fracture to the skull, and if it was done after he was dead, it would be seen as an abuse and probably left out of the report.

Hopefully this article will lead to some good commentary on the pro's and con's of the theories currently out there including any that our readers may have, I would encourage anyone to post up their theories no matter how simple or complicated they may be so we may all weigh them.

Additionally if you are a male close family member of "El Ondeado" the chances are, your life span will be limited. Here is a list of closely related people to "El Ondeado":


  • Javier Torres Felix, brother, extradited to the USA then arrested after arriving in Mexico after serving his sentence, currently in a Mexican prison.
  • Raul meza Ontiveros, El -M6, brother in law of Manuel, killed by gunfire in March 2007, his brother being Faustino Meza Ontiveros who was killed by gunfire during January of 2009
  • Atanacio Torres Acosta, son of Manuel, shot dead in Culiacan.
  • Joel Torres Jimenez, newphew of Manuel, shot in Culiacan with three other people in February 2010, has been attacked on two other occassions but is still alive.
  • Cesar Raul Meza Torres, El Mni 6, nephew of Manuel, shot dead in Jalisco after a shootout with Police.
  • Arturo Salazar Aispuro, El Tury, nephew of Manuel, killed by gunmen during January 2011 in Mexicali.
  • Onorio Felix Gutierrez, son in law of Manuel, killed by gunmen in Culiacan March 2011.
  • Francisco Torres, El 50, killed in gunfight with Mexican Army in Culiacan July 2013.
  • Misael Torres, M2, favourite nephew of Manuel, arrested and imprisoned October 2014.

    5. Where can i read about that? This guy was in all honesty a beast. The kind of guy a lot of narcos say they are, but never will get close to in character... i dont like to glorify any of this, and i dont like any cartel.. but this seems to be a stand up guy.. someone who said something then did it.. but also ive been curious about the number of serial killers there are in mexico and how easily they could ply thier trade and make it look like a narco was the killer. And how many narcos are actually serial killers. Does anyone know anything about the topic? Ive never been able to find anything..

    8. Good article, thanks, yes DAN KASS, I also think that psychopaths and serial killers just get hired by the cartels - or the military (Also in the US, just see collateral murder in youtube), it would be very interesting some investigation on this subject. The general Mexican (american) citizen is a simple peaceful guy.

    11. Manuel Torres Felix was dead for a few days before this incident happened. The man you're thinking of is Macho Prieto. Macho Prieto had been cowardly murdering other municipal CDS leaders, trying to take control of other turfs. Manuel found out about it and was planning to fight Prieto head on. But he was gunned down before he got the chance to. That's the reason why Macho Prieto was so well armed. Ondeado was one bad ass mofo that you needed some serious firepower to fight him. Manuel Torres Felix is a legend. A true warrior.

    12. @ 11:23 . psychopaths are more common than you think, 1 in a 100 people, yet they never act out their violent fantasies and never become killers. Psychosis within the psychopath condition, can lead to people suddenly start acting out their violent fantasies.

      A traumatic experience is well known as a psychosis trigger in these cases. As I believe happened to Ondeado when his son died and his daughter was injured.

      :3:52 not sure I would agree with you, psychopaths can often be, outgoing, charming and gregarious. Ted Bundy is one example. Sociapaths are loners and have a tendency to be misanthropes.

      I would say they were different conditions medically

    13. If anybody needs help ask me, Im a sociopath, psychopath, psychotic, charming, well read and funny.

    14. Psychopathy has nothing to do with violence? A person can be a psychopath and never inflict violence on anyone ? They can inflict violence because of lack of empathy,but the condition doesn't make them violent .

    1. Actually it was one of the beltran brothers who nicknamed him ONDEADO as a synonyme of ¨fag¨ or ¨sissy¨, you know, that he wasn't ¨straight¨. a lot of people think ¨ondeado¨ is because of his instability

      Delete
    2. Ondeado doesn't mean fag or sissy or nothing like that. Ondeado is what u call anyone that's on a sick one like on coke or meth n they r on a good one is that u say Mira anda ondeado meaning his on a good one

    3. @12:43 you are right about Macho Prieto being on everyone's bad side. Before Macho Prieto got killed he murdered el R5 in Hermosillo, Sonora. That was basically the last straw for the entire CDS, since everyone was looking for an excuse to kill him. CDS tipped off the Marina with Macho Prieto's location and they took him out. As far as Manuel Torres, everyone that is from El Salado, Quila, etc. has openly said that Mayo Zambada took him out because he was also out of control and was bringing to much attention to Culiacan, El Salado, Quila, El Dorado, etc. In other words M1 was too powerful and if anything went haywire it would be to hard to control him since he had a lot of people under his command. There was obviously no retaliation from Manuel's family because Chapo and Mayo are just too powerful and would take them all out without breaking a sweat. All this info. comes from people whom personally knew Manuel.

    4. Easy there 8:56, that definition came about after M1 embraced it...Good one 12:05 kind of makes sense...

How about machos people ha yah right. Penas people ha yah right. For all we know the guzmans never liked him. Who else esparragozas quinteros caros? The zambadas were their start and will be their finish unless they stay in line.

      Third and foremost why would you even care if mayo did or did not betray m1. So the hell what. If he did well good riddance to his compa if not well god riddance to his compa. Do you understand were i am getting at Don?

      And at least Barbas died guns blazing. That's what matters. 10-Life in a box eating slop bit being able to see the sky or walk hand in hand with a women or kill as many soldiers as you can before you die. Uh yea option 2.

    6. Los Beltran killed M1 son he was a 20yo hitman. M1 killed many of chalito araujos young friends and relatives aged 15-17. Who is the coward? M1is the real mata ninos.

      Delete
    7. A lot of people don't know that after they killed m1's son that m1 went to the araujo payan ranch and killed one of chalitos brothers and cousin. M1 was a bad mofo but so was chalito araujo there's a reason he went out guns blazing next to botas blancas.

      That's kind of the shitty part about the whole 2008 blo vs cds war is that since everyone was in conjunction prior to the war. Everybody pretty much knew where everybody stayed at and lived

El Mayo betrayed him and set him up .He was out of control , challenging el Macho Prieto and going to war with him another CDS leader and close friend of El Mayo . El Chapos people were going against ondeado also. El mayo gave his location to the Carrillo Fuentes who wanted him bad , there the ones that killed him and tied him up to the back of their truck and drove around , than left him on the street. These are Facts.

    4. Just not true.

      M-1 had been fighting in the mountains around Cosala (same area with current Chapo drama) for about a week. He'd really been giving the soldiers hell but was ultimately outnumbered. Basically the army had zeroed in on him through phone conversations, he'd been pinged just as Escobar, Chapo and many others have been. Once they have your location any time your voice is heard they're on you like white on rice. Manuel managed to skirt the army on foot and made his way down the mountain to the basin area surrounding Tacuichamona. He made the mistake again of turning on his phone and bang they were all over him again. He tried to separate from his pistoleros in much the same way Ramon Arellano did, hoping they'd chase them and leave him in the clear but they saw him. Likely was being observed by drones at this point, probably body heat detecting systems. Soldiers went right to where he was hiding and killed him. He never stood a chance, one person against an army at that point. Despite reports, he wasn't very close to Oso Viejo, except that he was maybe 300 feet from the road that leads to that town. He was actually about an equal amount away from the International highway that connects Culiacan and Mazatlan in the brush of a mountain side. Like I said he was in heavy brush so no way they saw him without some night vision gear.

      When they killed him choppers and military vehicles were everywhere. It sounded like the Fourth of July.

      Conspiracies are cool and stuff but these are the real facts. The Torres family continues to garner favor from Mayo, Manuels kids (he had many) still live in the area. You wouldn't catch them saying a bad word about him.

    10. You guys are the ones listening to corridos. Look at the picture where he is dead on top of the table his skin under his arm and back were burned due to being dragged. Carrillo Fuentes killed him in honor of Arturo Beltran Leyva and el Puma Guacho who were betrayed . ABL was appreciated by many in the mafia , not to mentioned ondeado didn't want to let anyone operate in Culiacan comfortably , Carillos have operated there for years and ondeado would kill people from Carillo Fuentes because they supported Arturo Beltran Leyva . Mayo betrayed Manuel Torres is that simple , who do you think was more important to him El ondeado who would spend his time around Culiacan killing people , who became mentally unstable after his son died or a Macho Prieto a veteran of CDS who was in charge of a very important drug trafficking route in the border of Sonora /US. You guys are the idiots fantasizing thinking Mayo would never betray el Ondeado , he wasnt useful no more and was getting ready to go to war with another CDS veteran I think Mayo made the right decision.

    8. When Chalo commited suicide on orders from Mayo, M1 personally went with his squad to el Rincon looking to finish off los charritos but toparon con hueso they repelled the attack and sent m1 with his tail between his legs. Chalito godson to Don Arturo asked for his backing which he gave. Since then it was shootouts between them vs mayos boys. Including one legendary fight between them and the federal paid off by mayo in culiacan, gonzalito came to the rescue and they survived although culeko did die that day. And yes it was chalito who died with Don Arturo that day.

  21. You know, revenge is the pleasure of the Gods, and the Gods do not care about the price, but apparently El Barbas was even more 'ondeado' than el M1, if mochomo got arrested, and he himself said el chapo was not to be blamed, that would have been the end of it, but no, el barbas had to go as murder el chapo's brother in puente grande el chapo had to get Rodolfo carrillo, get around garcia luna had to get el mochomo because the toluca airport was very important for estado de mexico governor enrique peña nieto, they made millions of dollars off the BLO with the toluca airport and their drug trafficking connections for his "presidential campaign", almost nobody mentions that the guys that reaped the benefits from the narco wars chapo/cds, vs AFO-ATRACOMULCO-tijuana texas tamaulipas monterrey, cd. Juarez, blo, zetas tijuanos, san luis, durango, chihuahua, coahuila, veracruz...etc rtc, were priistas and other political parties collaborators...
    --"Off the muddied river waters, fishermen make fortunes" means:
    "A Rio revuelto, ganancia de pescadores"
    They say el chapo stared all the wars, but looks like the politicians made all of the narcs engage on the little narco-wars, they are worse than all the "narcs" put together, and sure enough, Operations Wide Receiver and Fast and Furious helped, with mossad asset general rafael Macedo de la concha, general galvan galvan, (all the secretarios de la defensa and police commanders, presidents on both sides and ministers and gobernadores...just one of them is worse than all the narcs together...and they are all free and alive...

      Putting aside your ocassional pompous sentences, which are like bursting zits, you always manage to get at least one thing wrong with every post. Fellow BB readers could correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't El Pollo ordered killed not by El Barbas but by El Viceroy in retaliation for Chapo having his brother killed? You almost got it right but the chronology of events is wrong unless you're reffering to another brother of Chapo (you don't mention a nick or name) which I'm unaware of.

  39. I am not one to glorify el M1 but he was what most narcos claim to be. His story is really intriguing, one of what movies are made of. He was one of the old time narcos, dating back to the early 90's. His family is nothing but mafiosos. His brother el JT (jailed), his brother inlaw el M-6 (dead), his nephew el Mini-6 (dead) his son Tachio (dead), el M-2 Misael (jailed) his son in law who was married to Yasira (dead) countless cousins or parientes also dead. He still has sons that I am sure aspire to be what he was and his infamous legacy. His war with el Jefe de Jefes Arturo was brutal, if you have followed the narco war since then you know these dudes hated each other with a passion. M-1 might have not had the money or power Arturo had but he took the war to him and never seemed to frighten. With all the rumors of him hating el MP as well and not listening to orders from el MZ or not respecting some of el Chapos wishes he seemed to march to his own drum. I don't think he was set up, I just think his time and luck ran out. You can only look over your shoulder so much. He had created a lot of enemies, both with the government and contras. Was a great piece to read!
