Who actually killed El Gallo de Oro, Valentin Elizalde and why?

Written by Otis B Fly-Wheel


Reporter: Otis B Fly-Wheel
Born on the 1st of February in 1979 in Hitonhueca, Sonora. His mother was Camila Valencia, he had two brothers and a sister. He lived there for five years before moving with his father Everado “Lalo” El Gallo Elizalde and his brothers to Guadalajara, Jalisco. Then moved again to Guasave, Sinaloa. His childhood seems to have been unremarkable. None of the towns he lived in were particularly poverty stricken, so his upbringing was unlike a lot of his predecessors in the corrido business, who came from poverty in the small mountain rancheros of the Sinaloa mountains.

His father was a musician who died in a road traffic accident on the “curve of death” in Sonora. His father left him an inheritance, so while building his skills as a musician he studied for a Law degree at the University of Sonora, but left University to pursue his musical career.
Valentin created his own group in the banda style, with a large brass section called Banda Guasavena. Before forming his own group he sang with other bands among them Banda Triguera from Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Banda Cosala, and Banda Hermanos Morales.

His sights were firmly set on a recording and in 1998 he managed to record his first album entitled Mas alla del mar or Beyond the sea. This was recorded by Discos y Cintas Acuario, owned by Pedro Rivera, who had given Chalino Sanchez his first major record deal.

He recorded albums with Pedro until 2001. In 2002 he was discovered and groomed by Universal Music Group with whom he signed exclusive contracts. This was the right move for Valentin and he was nominated for many music awards with them.

El Gallo de Oro was killed in Reynosa in 2006 after giving a concert at  the Reynosa Palenque. He was gunned down with his chauffeur and manager in his vehicle while leaving the concert. There are three competing theories as to why he was killed and we will look at each in turn.



Some weeks before the concert there was a video posted on you-tube by the user Matazetas or Zetakiller. It was set to El Gallo de Oro’s song “A mis enemigos” or “To my enemies”. It contained pictures over which the song played. The pictures were of Cartel del Golfo members and Los Zetas who had been killed. The song itself is allegedly a threat from El Chapo Guzman to the Cartel del Golfo, although I do not read that myself in the lyrics.

Los Zetas were the armed wing and personal bodyguard of Osiel Cardenas Guillen, the then boss of the Cartel del Golfo. All were military deserters from the Mexican army and Air force special operations unit GAFE, Grupo Aeromobile Fuerzas Especiales, probably the best soldiers in the Mexican armed forces.

The video posting on you-tube started off a war of words in the comments section which turned particularly nasty with cheerleaders of both the Sinaloa Cartel and Los Zetas trading insults and death threats. You-tube took down the video but copies of it sprung up straight away. The video was seen purely as a taunt against Los Zetas, who would later go to war with the Sinaloa Cartel, who moved into Los Zetas territory to try and take the Nuevo Laredo plaza.

In my humble opinion, the video was certainly not the work of El Gallo de Oro, but as his song had been used a background, he was tagged with it. In Mexico, to insult CdG/Los Zetas then go into their turf is not a particularly wise thing to do.

There was certainly threats made against El Gallo de Oro before he arrived in Reynosa for his concert. Whether he knew of these or not, or just decided to ignore them, is a matter of speculation. On leaving with his manager and chauffeur from the concert venue, his vehicle was followed and then chased, El Gallo de Oro’s vehicle was then fired on and all three occupants were killed as a result. Forensic specialists recovered 70 spent shell casings from the scene. 


Just a few hours after the killing, insults to Elizalde were put up on social media, laughing at the fact he had been killed and saying “ he cried like a bitch”. There were two main people suspected from Los Zetas as being responsible for his killing. El Hummer, Jaime Gonzalez Duran, a deserter of GAFE. He was one of the founding members of Los Zetas. The second person suspected of the killing was Flanders 1, Raul Hernandez Barron, an ex-member of the Mexican Army, who joined the Cartel del Golfo after leaving the Army in 1999, and was then made up into Los Zetas.

Flanders 1 Raul Hernandez Barron


GAFE are not the type of forces who are spray and pray, they use surgical precision in their shooting. Preferring single aimed shots rather than volume of un-aimed fire by a weapon like an AK47. Given the shot patterns on the vehicle, which are not what I would expect from an experienced special- forces operator, I would rule out El Hummer as the shooter as well.

The Cartel de Golfo had many, many, sicarios at the time. Los Zetas were used only for particular work, there was only originally 31 of them, and they could not cover a whole city the size of Reynosa. I suspect that given the ballistics, the shooters were CdG sicarios and not Los Zetas that carried out this assassination.

If Los Zetas wanted to kill Valentin, I suspect it would have been an operation that was planned meticulously. His vehicle would have been boxed in and stopped, and he would have been kidnapped then killed, or shot inside his vehicle. Or more likely he would have been kidnapped from his changing room at the venue. 

This hit was messy, with bullets being sprayed all along the vehicle. The killing was much more of the type carried out by coked up sicarios with little or no training, with their weapon of choice the AK47 because they are cheap, and the average sicario knows no better.

Take for example the vehicle of Jaime Zapata, ICE agent killed by Los Zetas in Mexico, outside of San Luis Potosi. The vehicle shows very few bullet strikes, those that are obvious are clustered where the fire was restricted to trying to drill through any armour plating on the vehicle. In comparison, El Gallo de Oro's vehicle looks like a piece of Swiss cheese.

The second theory concerns a note received by Valentin during the concert itself. In a video of the concert, a man can clearly be seen walking up to the stage during a song, and handing Valentin a slip of paper, which he reads as he is singing.


In the above picture, the man who brought the note and the note can be seen in the right hand of Valentin. Allegedly this note contained a request for Valentin to attend and sing for a narco after the concert had finished. When he had finished singing and retired to his dressing room, “persons” attended his dressing room and again asked for him to attend the narco to sing for his private party. Valentin said that he was tired and had to go to a pre-arranged meeting in another town, so would not be able to attend the party.

The “persons” left, for a short while, and then returned to again request his attendance. He said he would not be able to attend and left the venue in his vehicle with his manager and driver and cousin. He was then attacked by the narco’s men and killed.

I find this a much more likely reason than the former for the killing of Valentin. Given the evidence. I have no doubt Los Zetas knew that Valentin had nothing to do with the video that had appeared on youtube. The sloppiness of the attack, even if it was successful, I think rules out Los Zetas.

The third theory is that Valentin had become romantically involved with a wife of a narco and this was a crime of passion. This also could be a valid reason, as the constant stream of women who step up to dance with Valentin at all his concerts leaves us in no doubt as to his popularity with the ladies.
Of the three theories, I find the second most likely.

 CBS news in an article about the death of Fabian Ortega Pinon, quoted Edgar Valdez Villareal, La Barbie, notorious hit man for the Beltran Leyva Cartel as saying “ cartels kill grupero musicians because they go around with different groups or cartels, and because they didn’t go and sing for a certain narco, or for other silly reasons”. Cartels often sponsor corrido singers when they start their careers, and expect services in return. These relationships can turn sour when requests are not fulfilled.

    12. Mexican army Lieutenant Arturo Guzman Decena must have some photos in the archives of the mation, they take a lot of phots of the cadets and graduates of the military college, he retired to become an officer of the Policia Judicial Federal serving in tamaulipas to tempt Osiel Cardenas Guillen with his nalgotas, it worked. But the government keeps his photos "classified" to protect themselves from something.

Zeta precision shots left aess in San Fernandez do and a bigger one in Allende, and ome more in the prison and wherever they went murdering and making their pozoles and carniasadas, dismemering their victims and eating their nalgas do not require a lot of precision either, I hope El Hummer does not base his appeals on this tripe planted for his freedom tree, by the way, wasn't El Hummer an American soldier trained by US military?

  13. Theories? Let’s go with facts: Everyone and their mother knows that he was sprayed by El Hummers people. Otis, you put that if it was El Hummer it would be a tactical shot instead of a spray of bullet, so you’re ruling out Hummer. Remember that Hummer was the plaza boss in Reynosa at that time so he had shit loads of sicarios. He didn’t have to do it himself. Elizalde was warned not to sing that song and Hummer and the while CDG took it as a disrespect especially since they knew Elizalde was friends with the CDS. Once he song it, Hummer orders his ass to get wiped out and they used AK47 to spray the motherfucker and send a message to all of the CDS groupies. So to answer your question, it was El Fucken Hummer that did it...

    9. Osiel Cardenas financed the political career of Francisco javier garcia cabeza de cagadas de vacas since he ran for federal congressmam in 2000, at the end he ran for mayor of Reynosa while coincidentally osiel got cogido, at the end of that term Osiel got extradited in 2007 while la pancha cabezas saw his lucky star got fatter and fatter in politics ending a federal senator before getting elected governor of the state and after all the murdering he reigns like a Reynosa and has his own criminal army of "Fuerzas Especiales De La Pancha"...
      A career almost like alvaro uribe velez's who started as a pelagatos of Pablo Escobar and ended president de Colombia with plenty of murdering of rival cartels, friends and foes, alliances with criminals on both sides, milicos, paracos and "false positivos", one hell of an inferno on earth nobody knew where it came from...
      La Pancha cagadas made off with millions, like Uribe did with billions, but La Pancha is just begining...

  28. nice article.

    reynosa is such an interesting plaza. the physicial location has also been of huge interest (located between `Moros and Laredo, north of Vicky and San Fernando). The rivalry between R1 and Lazca even back when they were "friends." The tension between both CDG and Letra that led up to the split in 2010, and the eventual fallout between moros CDG and reyno CDG.

    reyno CDG had one of the highest turnover rates ever, probably more than your average McDonalds. i'm enjoying Lechefs "dead CDG plaza boss" thread on the message board. really takes you back to when M3 supporters created a united front, and how it all unraveled and they started turning on each other, and the fall of the R's. Have the R's even recovered?

  29. His hit was a mistaken identety. He was not the target, but he was traveling in a suburban that looked like that of a narco that was given the green light. Do research on what happened in the next two days and who was killed. You will find the answer there.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Supposedly before he sang that song in the concert before he got killed someone warned him not sing it or they would take it as an insult due to all the controversy. Some foo from reynosa told me a few days after it happened

  31. The zetas told him not to perform that song. It was the first one on his list. He also sang that song at the end of the concert. The orders came from the top to kill him for disrespecting. They told him "we like your song but don't play that one! They also took his guns he had in his suburban.

  37. With all due respect I have to disagree with the song being the reason why he died. He got wacked for dipping his dick in a CDGs leader side piece. Fact. Who killed him? Its up and left for debate but its between Kari's and Hummer to who ordered the hit.

    The song had nothing to do with it. If you don't believe ask Menytimes or ValorTamaulipas. They know the sabia callen

  40. Hey yo Otis, damn good article man, I like your style. Plus it’s good someone put effort into the subject that is narco corridos, or singers... people on this site tend to dismiss them, but those are people who have no clue how closely tied some of these people are in the business, the drug war itself, and the influence they have on the culture, all of which are important to anyone who is a student of the drug situation in Mexico.

  44. What a well written article, and these new scenarios are absolutely plausible.

    I used to be a believer of the hype that the Z’s were behind this but I am now thinking it was a local CDG “commandante”, specifically the work of sloppy shooters.
