Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, better known as El Chapo, looked at the three men in the room with him. For a few minutes he had been babbling incoherently until they entered, and little by little he changed his tone of voice to a normal one. He told them he would be honest with them - he was afraid of his rivals, the Arellano Felix brothers. He offered a deal to the three men: I will give you Arellano Felix and you eliminate the accusations against me and against my brother Arturo.

The two agents of the DEA, the Drug Control Administration of the United States, were accompanied by an agent of the Attorney General of the Republic of Mexico, PGR. None gave way. There is no deal, they said.

'Don Zefe', the mysterious founder of Los Zetas

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Early life and career: 1990s

It was the 1990s, and Gilberto García Mena ("El June") ruled over drug trafficking operations in La Frontera Chica, a border stretch in Tamaulipas that includes the municipalities of Gustavo Díaz Ordaz, Camargo, Miguel Alemán, Mier, and Guerrero. One of his top enforcers was Zeferino Peña Cuéllar ("Don Zefe"), a man who would later become one of the founders of Los Zetas. Don Zefe was friends with Raúl Antonio Rodríguez Barrera ("El Chupón"), a federal police officer who would later become the mayor of Miguel Alemán (1999–2001). But the story of Don Zefe is worth the tale. He was born in Tamaulipas and grew up in a seemingly ordinary family of multiple siblings. He graduated from college with a degree in civil engineering, and then went on to join the Miguel Alemán Municipal Police force just like his father did. However, once in the police, Don Zefe decided to pursue a different career: organized crime.
