Colima: Governor confirms murder of "El Americano"

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat


Colima governor confirmed the death of Luis Antonio Torres "El Americano", ex-member of the self-defense groups in Michoacán and designated as a member of organized crime. The murder was conducted during the attack on a popular nightclub in Manzanillo.

The attack occurred on Saturday night, outside the "Bar Nudus" nightclub, located on the Miguel de la Madrid coastal boulevard.

It was there that Luis Antonio Torres "El Americano"  died.

Torres  moved from Michoacán to Colima several months ago, since the beginning of the year. In social networks, inhabitants of the terracaliente region, reported having no news of his whereabouts, they speculated he was dead.

El Americano formed the "H3" group, which supposedly fought the criminal groups that operated in Tierra Caliente.

After the disintegration of the self-defense groups, he  became part of the Rural Forces, created by the then Commissioner for Security and Integral Development of the State of Michoacán, Alfredo Castillo Cervantes. Cervantes appointed Torres as a leader, which outraged many who suspected he was working for Los Viagras.

Luis Antonio Torres was related to both the criminal group Los Viagras and the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación.

Here is one of the videos that I have referred to and posted previously. In this video, a member of Viagras is interrogated, he reveals he is from Pinzandaro and works for Viagras, El Americano, and Mencho leader of CJNG is mentioned.  The video surfaced last September.

When he was stopped, he states he was transporting money for gas and food for Viagras.

He says he works at the drug kitchens in el Valle, and that he Viagra production is for Mencho.  He says besides the drugs he also is involved in the kidnappings.

This offered further proof of  Luis Antonio Torres', aka "Simon El Americano" collusion with Viagras.  Americano was rumored to operate the majority of the drug kitchens in Michaocán.  Yet he was appointed by Commissioner Castillo to be one of the three commanders of the  EPN backed Rurales, and commander of an "elite" team searching for La Tuta"


Readers will recall when myself and Pepe a contributor from Michoacán,  spotted who we thought was El Americano, walking in video footage of La Tuta and the leader of Viagras, having a verbal confrontation.  I took screenshots  and created a post of Torres then a leader of the federal government police group Rurales.  


I posted the photo several times on BB and on social networks.  It did not seem to get much mainstream media attention.  A few months passed, then Reforma saw it, and other media sites like LaVoz  and Quadratin posted my photo, and are saying the photo is making the rounds of social media.  "Pepe" a BB contributor posted the links and asked me "isn't this your photo?".  It sure is.  

You can see where they cropped BB off...no matter, it is mine, and the "of" word in English is a dead give away that it did not come from Mexico.

The screenshots went viral, he was detained and “investigation” by Michoacana was conducted, but they allowed Torres to go free, saying “it wasn’t him”.

But it was.

It was a 50 vehicle convoy and americano after his ass.

      Americano was responsible for the death of Lito's son.

    12. @515PM Borderland Beat does not write the comments that are posted and I doubt that most of the readers who post comments claim to be journalist. We have never asked those readers for a source before they can write a comment. That would kind of defeat the purpose of a open Forum where readers can express what is on their mind.
      As to your statement the "we're"(not "were") supposed to read.... You are not supposed to or required to read any of them. Your decision. But you are free to respond to any comment and ask the person what his source his. How if I may ask does that make BB "Bias Journalism."

  28. Doesnt his alleged presence in Manzanillo fall in line with a lot of the narco-messages being posted in Manzanillo over the past few months. Several of them mentioned that the CDS would be calling on the LFNM (aka Los Viagras) to be sent into Colima. Americano may have been that support sent to fight against the CJNG. Some reports state that he was representing the Colima Cartel which is aligned with the CDS and allowed them to gain access to Colima several years ago.
