Fourteen years ago Ramon Arellano Felix was killed

The most violent of the Arrellano Felix brother was killed unexpectedly, as he was looking for one of his enemies.

It was about 10:30 am on Sunday, February 10, 2002 when elements of the Ministerial Police chased five occupants of a white VW Beetle Sinaloa license plate number VFY 6068, mainly because they were circulating on the opposite direction at Rafael Buelna Avenue near the Zona Dorada.

The white VW Beetle was driven into the parking lot of a hotel where it was abandoned.

Then the occupants dispersed among the Bugambilias Street businesses.

Two of the occupants hid in a pharmacy where they tried to look as buying customers flipping through magazines while trying to go unnoticed.

Marcos Assemat Hernández and Sergio Reyes reached all the way to Tony's restaurant, where they were arrested moments later.


The shooting. Ángel Antonio Árias Torres, former commander of the state police, ran into someone who identified himself with a badge from the Attorney General's Office just meters before reaching the pharmacy. It was Jorge Perez Lopez; in reality was Ramon Arellano Felix.


Trying to take advantage of the moment when the police commander put his guard down, Ramon Arellano shoot him twice in the chest. The bullets did their part. When Ángel Antonio Arias Torres was falling mortally wounded, he reacted and fire back at the fake AFI agent, hitting him with a bullet straight in the head. The police commander maybe did not really know who he "swept away". Both bodies fell dead on the sidewalk outside a pharmacy.


The other subject that had accompanied Jorge Pérez López, Bernardo Rochín (Efrain Quintero Carrizona), tried to flee, but ran into a group of ministerial police who shot him as soon as he was in front of them; and although he was helped by Red Cross paramedics, he died minutes later aboard the ambulance. He was murdered they said.


The fourth man, Manuel López López, was arrested in the Plaza Gaviotas.

The memory. The smelled of gunpowder was fresh. They reported a shootout in the Golden Zone.


It was Carnival Sunday. The reporter arrived first and took pictures of the two dead lying on a sidewalk. I did not know what it was. "When I arrived, the police prevented me from doing my job. It gave me a bad feeling and I thought it was something real bad.


I thought they had killed an important person, "said an interviewee who lived the moment on its eyes when getting off the Volkswagen he was driving down to cover the police news section for Nota Roja for Mazatlan El DEBATE newspaper. He said as time went by he wrote down what happened. When I discover who the dead men was, I was amazed to know it was an important person, said the interviewee.

"In all the police events we take a picture of the face of the person and then we work on the photo composition".


The location has changed. Today its called Bugambilias street and Gaviotas corner, but before it was Rodolofo T. Loaiza in the Golden Zone, there is a hotel there now.

At that time there was a pharmacy in the corner and some other businesses. It was a calm and quiet place. And over the years these institutions were demolished to expand the hotel.

Years later, after the death of Ramon Arellano, the corner of Bugambilias and Gulls has served as narcotours for Pulmonias Taxi drivers, Safaris and Charioteers. There was not a person who will visit the harbor and did not want to know where Ramón die never to rise again.

In fact, even the sidewalk was remodeled in its entirety. The same crime scene changed sharply.


The rest is history. After the death of one most famous drug kingpins renowned worldwide, a notorious leader of the Arellano Felix cartel, has in fact ceased to be the most frequently mentioned.

Gradually time has passed, and what happened in the Mazatlan port in 2002 was apparently forgotten, like all the deceased and detainees. Sometimes to raise the issue between those who lived through those times, there are dozens of unanswered questions. Some police officers who were involved in the arrest of the gunmen, and the subsequent confiscation of strong arms cache, have said that they never imagined being in front of the dead body of Ramon Arellano Felix, who among the drug trafficking world perhaps he won the respect of some and the enmity of many.

The man who according to those narcocorridos was the safety and fear of the cartel, will impose fear no more. Ramon Arellano Felix became another statistic. Everyone shouted for days on the news: Ramon Arellano Felix, was dead.

  10. Nice article. At the end it expresses a point i have made in comments on many of your post. Many speak of Chapo this and Chapo that. Once it is all said and done he too will be forgotten. Remembered for escaping but forgotten. Even the escapes will be scrutinized due to the apparent corruption involved. Once thoroughly explained to future generations, it won't be so impressive. Pay money, get out of jail. Not so impressive. When both times could have been prevented by someone simply coming forward.

    1. You got that right. Once Chapo is dead no one will remember him.

    2. I disagree, I believe Chapo's legacy will outlast that of De Gortari, Zedillo, Fox and Penanietos combined... The only President who I say will stand the test of time is Calderon.

    1. You do know he was a dirty cop under Mayo's orders right??

    2. Ramons brain died first by the looks of his wound but that cop took 2 shots to the chest of what looks like a 45.. He probably chocked on his blood for a little while before dying. Hell of a shot from the police officer! He died a hero and didn't even know it. I wonder if the gave the 5 mill to the cops family? They should off.

    3. There are versions that say he was looking for Zambada to execute him but Zambada was given the heads up and got his police to cruise round looking for Ramon and his team?Sure people here have heard this story?

      Delete
    4. @11:05pm that's the old rumor that has been going around for years. Mazatlan was tierra del Mayo/Azul and El Mon was ambushed by the police. I've never bought the whole story of the cop shooting RAF as he fell from 2 shots to the chest, sounds too much like something straight out of a movie. Too many coincidences piled on top of each other (randomly spotted bc of a traffic violation, Ramon being the only one to die next to the car when the rest of his crew was able to get much further away, the cop's magical shot to El Mon's head while falling dead from a gunshot) for me to think that this was anything other than a targeted attack.

  23. Those bodies looked staged? Anyone? Would the bodies and the gun just fall to the ground like that?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The sunglasses are def staged/placed! However, typically when they stage guns they are placed right next to the body lined up nicely. In this case it seems as if the guns have not been placed.
      Staging of guns is common after 'encounters'/'gun battles' with the armed forces where there are no witnesses (due to death).

    3. RA died with his glasses on. First responder checked pupils and left glasses on perps chest. Happens all the time. IMHO this was definitely a targeted hit for $5M payday with unintended consequences.

    1. nonsense you can see the bullet entree point at the top of his head.

      Delete
    2. I study forensics and base on the position of the bodies and projectile impacts. I cant really imagen the officer squeezing off a lucky shot into RAF head. especially when the entry wound to the head is on the opposite side from the fallen officer. looks more like a suicide from RAF part then a lucky shot or execution, based on the point of entry to the head,near the ear right temple (which is another exception from the mouth) position of the body and pistol. those are facts based on what I see. unless body positions where tampered with. btw I highly doubt that Ramon fella will give himself up tgat easy. thats just my humble opinion.

      Delete
    3. El mon Did not give himself up easy, with his charola de la PGR distracted the officer enough to shot him but the shot on the head needs some recreation, see where the bullet entered and the path, see if it checks with the officer shooting from the ground...

  32. Lol @ the comments saying "CAF is coming back"! No they're not. You've been saying that for the past decade. They're done. And everyone should stop nut hugging this bastard. He was all balls no brains. Started the feud with Chapo by killing his compadre el rayo. And what a dumbass way to die as well, he actually thought it was a good plan to go into Sinaloa and kill el MZ himself. He got what was coming to him and el chapito finished this family off. Good riddance, this nut head would kill for fun
