"Kiko" Trevino, Last Leader of Los Zetas, Goes on Trial Today in Texas

Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Proceso


         Texas "Kiko" Treviño, US Citizen, last leader of the Zetas, is being tried in Waco, Texas

By: Juan Alberto Cedillo  July 16, 2018
Nuevo Laredo, Tampaulipas

Juan Francisco Treviño Chávez Jr., "Kiko" , the last king of the Zetas who renamed the Northeast Cartel (CDN), will be tried in Texas this Monday on seven counts, "including five that go from 10 years in prison to life imprisonment, " the Texas newspaper San Antonio Express News reported.

An alleged former leader of Mexico’s bloodthirsty  Los Zetas cartel is going on trial , which starts Monday in a federal court in Waco, Texas accused of conspiracy to traffic multi-kilogram quantities of marijuana and cocaine inland through South Texas and laundering millions of dollars in proceeds.
Juan Francisco Treviño Chavez Jr., the 38-year-old nephew of former Zetas boss Miguel Angel “Z-40” Treviño Morales and himself a leader of the now-splintered cartel, is being tried on seven counts.  Juan Treviño, a U.S. citizen known as “Kiko” or “Comandante Kiko,” is the second of the Treviño family to be tried in the U.S. 


Another of his uncles, Jose Treviño, was convicted in a trial in an Austin  federal Court  after a more than 3 year investigation involving multiple US Law Enforcement Agencies for laundering the Zetas’ drug money through quarterhorse racing. He was ultimately convicted and is serving 20 years w/o any priors. Not only did he launder money through a complex scheme but the Trevino brothers  threw races to up the bidding price of the sale of their horses. Several business associates were also found guilty and are serving long sentances.
 Read Bloodlines by Melissa Del Bosque: I did, a fascinating story , especially the Austin Trial 

"Kiko" Treviño was arrested in Baytown, outside Houston, in September 2016 after slipping into the United States illegally some time after he was released by a judge in Mexico, where he had been arrested in 2012.

Kiko Treviño, 38, is the nephew of former Zetas leader Miguel Ángel Treviño Morales, Z40 , and was captured in Houston by the DEA in September 2016. He was also arrested in Monterrey in 2012 and spent a short time in Mexico, but a judge freed him from the charges of carrying weapons for the exclusive use of the Army.


Kiko Treviño was sent by his uncle Z40 to be the head of the plaza for Monterrey after all the Zetas commanders were captured after the attack on Casino Royale.



After the capture of Miguel Ángel Treviño Morales, Z40 in July 2013, his brother Omar Treviño, Z42 , took control of the group, but a year later he left the Zetas to enjoy his immense fortune in Monterrey and gave  the leader position to  his nephew.

The cartel used Interstate 35 as a corridor to the northern points bound for Dallas, sometimes leaving drug shipments in San Antonio or other cities along the way, the note added.

FBI retired agent Arturo Fontes, who investigated the Treviño family, told the newspaper that Kiko Treviño developed an addiction to cocaine and other drugs that fueled his volatility, to the point that even his uncle Miguel Ángel Treviño had him locked up in a house as punishment.


"It is expected that some of the Zetas' original members testify about how Kiko Treviño helped the Zetas control large swaths of the northern states of Tamaulipas, Nuevo León and Coahuila, which border Texas, from their Nuevo Laredo base," He specified in the note of the San Antonio Express News.




"He has a very bad temper, has a psychopathic personality, is narcissistic and depends on drugs. He fluctuates from being normal to being very violent. 

We had information about him directing the cartel for a short time, and being involved in several murders on both sides of the border of people who were innocent, " the Texas newspaper reported.

One of the innocent people Kiko Treviño murdered was a dancer from a "Table Dance" in Nuevo Laredo who refused to end the night in the capo's bed.

Stay tuned for updates on the trial proceedings.

    3. The Treviñas acquired some Tejas education when they went there to work as masonry or landscaping laborers, the English language skills they learned in Tejas made them favorites with CDG and they carried their influence to the zetas, Spanish speaking paracos with a real military background, but no education, not even mexican army GAFE lieutenant Arturo Guzman Decena had any real education, he was just a murderer for sale or lease.

    8. @6:53AM Waco became famous undeservedly for the Koresh tragedy. Koresh's compound was actually in or near the tiny town of Axtel, Tx. about 13 miles from Waco. But who the hell ever heard of Axtel so the press just called it Waco. Pretty sure Waco was not happy about the misnomer.

    17. I agree with you all about racism in Texas. I'm biracial and grew up in the Oakland CA. Area. Being a white/Mex I WAS the minority. But never in my life did I witness racism like I did in San Antonio, and Witchita Falls, Tx. Once at a truck stop between WF and Dallas I was with my USAF buddies, 2 we're African, 1 Mexican. In uniform the waitress refused to serve us. This was in 1988.

      It's even worse in Knob Creek Kentucky.
      Family members of military personnel and police , son and I attended the machine gun fest. Where fully automatic weapons are fired and purchased.
      Actually the only state in the country that holds such a festival.
      The racial discrimination is very evident there.
      Ignorance and hatred by those white supremacists and clan members.
      Avoidance is highly recommended if not white.

    1. INDEED they Look demonic ! Thats because they are demons!!! A normal human cant kill people in mass by torture and dismembering.Kill for what? I tough we are selling drugs not go around and kill random people.FUNNY how a LARGE portion of money they make goes to security/killing random people in massive numbers. I bet 50% of the money they make goes to buying weapons logistics hiring assasins. I mean killing all these people requires a huge efort ; all kinds of shit involved..like Why wtf should i invest time and huge efort and huge money resources risk my life just so i can kill random people that just whant to make money?!? Are we in the business of killing people or selling dope!!? Its crazy!! That is Why i Say they are demons because they dont Look for Cash anymore they Look for terror and MASS murders and blood. A normal human will only sell dope ,this is a wise man..but killing all that people; your fellow Poor mexican ?!! Man..BIG MISTAKE !! You are out of your mind..you are not human anymore.that is why carteles must be aproached with a diffrent mindset because they are demons!

      You hit the nail on the head with your wondering about what is there to be won from wholesale murdering, let's remember that SouthAmerican immigrant refugeés and asylum seekers riding the train of death to Tamaulipas were giving a black eye to the government, about the time FRONTIER SERVICES GROUP was incorporated looking for US Government "security contracts" after Blackwater burned their welcome, if they gave a subcontract to their drug trafficking partners Los Zetas to stop the flow of illegals, murdering and raping a few worked like magic, for a while...at least, Now they are back because somebody IS taking them hostage and kidnapping their children to extort a WALL from the US, must have been another special request to the "specialists" who seem to have Guatemalan and Honduran looong lists of candidates.

    3. The feds didn't deal with the (428)horses the family stayed on the ranch for a year after he was arrested until Jose trevino was sentenced then some of the FBI agents keep some of the good ones and auctioned the rest even though the horses didn't belong to him most belonged to wealthy businessmen and women I know for a fact that the san Antonio spurs owner had some breeding horses there but the gov. won't tell you that
