Mexicali: Torturer And Kidnapper Of Kiki Camarena Arrested

El Armadillo For Borderland Beat From NBCSD


A 77-year-old man has been arrested in the 1985 killing of a Drug Enforcement Administration agent - a horrific death that marked the first time a cartel  had attacked and killed a U.S. drug agent.

Ezequiel Godinez Cervantes was taken into custody by Mexican police Thursday in Mexicali, Mexico, after the Federal Bureau of Investigation tipped off authorities when Godinez crossed the border.

Godinez was handed over to U.S. authorities at the border and arraigned Thursday in federal court in El Centro. It was unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Godinez is accused of kidnapping and torturing San Diego DEA agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena Salazar - an act that forever changed how the U.S. fought drug cartels.

The Texas native, Godinez,  was a member of the now-defunct Guadalajara Cartel, Baja California state police indicated

"The killing of an American agent on foreign soil was a huge game changer for the United States," said Gretchen Von Helms, a criminal defense attorney who has not tied to the case.

"They were obviously interested in protecting their agents at the time and at the time the DEA operated in Mexico much like it was in the United States. You did not believe that you could be killed.


"In February 1985, Camarena disappeared while working undercover. A month later, I was found dead on a ranch on the outskirts of Guadalajara, Mexico

Officials said Camarena was tortured and killed by the Guadalajara Cartel, which blamed the agent for the takedown of a marijuana plantation."His name has morphed into a symbol of the drug war between the United States and Mexico," Von Helms said.

The cartel was reportedly run by Miguel Ángel Felix Gallardo and Rafael Caro Quintero, the latter of whom was added to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list in 2018 - with a $ 20 million bounty - for his alleged involvement in Camarena's death.Camarena's legacy can be seen throughout the county with schools, a library, a foundation, and even an annual golf tournament named after him.

Netflix '"Narcos: Mexico" even portrayed Camarena's career and eventual death.

"His name is really a household name. He's very honored and very revered. And the law enforcement comes to protect his memory and to honor his memory, "said Von Helms
In the 1990s, he was charged with the 1985 slayings of two U.S. residents in Guadalajara. The men, one from Texas and the other from Minnesota, unwittingly entered a bar where drug traffickers were partying and were stabbed with ice picks and beaten to death.

Godinez was arrested in Texas in 1996, but the charges against him were dropped the next year.

    1. 6:10 doctor Alvarez Machain got released immediate because he was captured and extradited illegally to the US. Never got prosecuted again, I think he threatened somebody with spilling the beans if they stick the cattle prod up his ass one more time.

    2. There are hundreds of case law instances related, but Dr Humberto Alvarez Machain was released by the US government and never charged again, you can find out why.
      Machain was kidnapped in Mexico and released to law enforcement, on the US, El cheque Godinez Cervantes may have a case if he got extradited by Mexico without a trial or shet.

      in spite of heir many sins, but not many intelligent and well illustrated believe in the US government infiltrated full of chicken shit sprouting war hawks, fabricating wars for profit all over the world, sometimes inventing sources and secret info they freshly dug out off their asses like WMD in Iraq.

      Delete
    5. 1124, I agree with you. You have to intelligently discern and support people, but also recognize the sins of the many and of the government that perpetuates unjustified killing. It's one thing for people to thank us for our service and support us (although I think they go too far with it at times, especially lately), but to know the atrocities that some also support - now that's extremely useful information to know as well.

    7. 12:18 ever since before the US achieved independence, they were already working on stealing Canada, Mexico, LatinAmerica, anything that was not British owned, the american revolutionaries kiss and made out with Britain and went on tto steal their colonies from a the other countries they had courted, since then England has hosted many revolutionaries, including a hungry Karl Marx and even hungrier Vlademir Iliych Ulianov, Lenin whose fall guy Stalin took over the Russian revolution for the next 50 years.
      Revolutions are very good business, the many on the US still claims "America for the Americans", which are not brown or black or Chinese and try to enforce their policies to rob and exploit every other nation on the world. It is not like other countries wish to come and engage the US in some trouble for the hell of it,
      It is that there must be limits to the exploitation of others by some on the US.

  15. Arrested by mexican polesias when he crossed the bridge, from where?
    He was recognized after leaving the US and entering Mexico?
    In the hunt for Camarena, CARTEL DE GUADALAJARA gangsters seem to have killed 6 PEOPLE that looked like gabachos, but nobody even knew what Kiki looked like, so, how did they know his name?
    Kiki and other DEA agents were known to work out of the US embassy in Guadalajara, even in the CDG circles at high levels, but the Mexican federal police had to kidnap him after the DFS pointed the right guy, I mean identifying Kiki Camarena was a job done from above, the CIA and the DFS POINTED CAMARENA TO CDG.
    DFS Fernando Gutierrez Barrios and Manuel Bartlett.
    CIA Felix Ismael Rodriguez Mendigutia (FIRM) and his compadre Juan Ramon Matta Ballesteros Honduran drug trafficker who as found guilty for his part in the case and supposedly imprisoned on the US, they were running contra training camps in Mexico they also used to transport and transfer drugs, money, weapons and contra.
    On one such camp were murdered 22 Policias Federales in cold blood, after they were forced to surrender by contras they were allegedly trying to rob of tons of mariguana believing they were just some campesinos... In the village of Sanchez Taboada, Veracruz, that rancho was owned by CDG and being used as a contras base by Felix Rodriguez.
    CIA Tosh Plumlee a contract pilot, DEA agents Phil Jordan from El Paso and Hector Berrellez (who had been working with Guillermo Gonzalez Calderoni a Policia judicial federal that had helped the FBI kill Pablo Acosta in ojinaga and was murdered later in Texas, for singing to DEA and Berrellez), 3 guys that accused Felix Rodriguez and Co. for his part on FOX News and Proceso, have been demonized by the US government and their former employers on the CIA and the DEA, including by Felix Ismael Rodriguez Mendigutia who threatened lawsuits, but never defended himself in court. Jesus Esquivel a mexican reporter accused them on Aristegui too.
    People have said 10 000 tons of mariguana worth about 5 billion dollars were caught in rancho el Buffalo were destroyed by mexican authorities but what made the CDG mad was the US DEA confiscating 250 million dollars from US banks, idea of Camarena, whose name was fed from the top of the feeding chain to CDG.
    Those that fed Kiki's name to the Mexican Cartel wolves have not been investigated or prosecuted, since they were presidential pardoned, idea of AG Bill Barr "the General of Cover Ups".
    WFAA "el chapo may face new charges..."
    Google names of US citizens killed by mistake by Guadalajara Cartel.
    2 US missionary Jehova's Witnesses and their 2 US wives, and later 2 Guadalajara U students from the US.
    The killers of 22 Federales in Sanchez Taboada ver. Have never been prosecuted, but some innocent local peasants living in the area have spent about 30 years in prison, some for being family of local police officers that tried to help the Federales locate the contra ranch, some of them escaped and left the 22 Federales to their luck in the trap. Some time later Manuel Buendia got his just desserts for cooperating with Camarena.
    --All this happened while
    Minister Carlos Salinas de Gortari was being groomed and breast fed by presidente Miguel de la Madrid before his appointment to the presidency, he had been running the whole thing from behind courtains.

  26. Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story stated Ezequiel Godinez-Cervantes was arrested in connection with the killing of DEA Special Agent Enrique Camareno. Mexican authorities released that information, but the DEA has since issued a release to confirm Godinez-Cervantes was arrested on two warrants for violating the terms of his supervised release.

    A convicted drug trafficker implicated in the 1985 torture and killing of a DEA agent was arrested in Mexico and returned to California to face a charge of probation violation.

  28. This guy scaped from a federal prison in California then emerged decades later in the Rio Grande Valley. I believe he’s from San Juan, TX. I thought he was locked up in Beaumont, TX.

When did he even get out and why would the FBI want him again if he was already in U.S. custody?
