American teen "Juanito Pistolas" was killed but with his head intact

By Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat 

 "I am a criminal and so I am going to die, I am a zeta until death," so says one of the songs dedicated to Jaunito.


Juanito Pistoles

A ghastly image of a dead assassin with his head blown off  made the rounds, as did  subsequent reports that it was “Juanito Pistoles”.  This set off a debate here at Borderland Beat, suicide or gun blast?  At least that part of the debate is settled, the person sitting upright, weapon at attention, missing his head, was not "Juanito".

However, he was killed in the fray that day of August 27th, in the war torn Tamaulipas city of Nuevo Laredo, but with his head intact.

This past Tuesday, in the middle of the day, there was a flurry of radio communication being transmitted between CDN assassins, warning; “Do not advance to Los Aguacates!”

For Juanito and the other assassins, they were surprised by, from elements of state police, waiting for the sicarios at the bridge known as “Los Aguacates”. The version of police [Special Operations Group of the Center for Analysis, Information and Studies of Tamaulipas (CAIET)] is when the sicarios spotted the police they began firing, and the police fired back.

As a teen assassin, his moniker was Juanito Pistoles”.  As an American his given name was Juan Francisco Díaz.


That’s right----Juanito was an American kid.


The 17 year old was recruited for a killing career at the age of 12 and said to have his first kill at 13.

A peculiar aspect of the Juanito story is that his criminal “career” began with CDN, when his father was alledgedly executed by CDN.  Dad is dead, his executioners offered Juanito a position as an assassin.  He was 12.

He eventually became a part of the bloody CDN assassin group, Tropa del Infierno' or ‘Hell Troop’.

At 17 his life was packed with stunning events enough for a couple of volumes of books.  Even his personal life was advanced; we now know he was married. 

On Tuesday, Juanito’s mother traveled to SEMEO and positively identified the body  waiting to be autopsied, as that of her son, Juan Francisco Díaz.

Reports in Mexican press state that Juanito was arrested in 2015, at which time he gained his notoriety.  Supposedly he confessed to killing scores of people, “maybe 100”.  Apparently authorities did not believe him as he was e\released allegedly “because of his age.

That is questionable because although Mexico treats young criminals with kid gloves, in cases of murder the youthful criminals are usually sent to a facility with other minors for social rehabilitation and treatment for mental disorders with psychological help.  They are then released back into society when becoming of age, or 18.  As an example look at the Ponchis case.

He was lovingly raised by his grandmother, when she died
he was 10 and alone on the streets of Mexico
Édgar Jiménez Lugo aka El Ponchis, also an American teen assassin, was sent to the Centre custodial Measures for Implementation of Freedom for Teenagers (CEMPLA)

It was on December 3 of 2010,  when elements of the Mexican Army detained Édgar Jiménez Lugo, aged 14, at the Mariano Matamoros airport in Cuernavaca, when he intended to board a plane bound for Tijuana in the company of his sister Elizabeth. "El Ponchis" was already being tracked due to a series of videos on social media networks, where he appeared torturing enemies of the South Pacific Cartel (the organization that recruited him) and confessed that he had killed at least four people.

Ponchis was released just before his 18th birthday, back to the United States, where he had briefly reunited with his mother in San Diego, after being released to relatives in San Antonio. 

On the morning of November 26, 2013, the day he was released under a strong security operation,. Ponchis made a request before leaving; "That the federal government give him protection so that the South Pacific Cartel would not re-recruit him, or in his case, kill him."

A convoy of the Mexican Army transferred him to the International Airport of Mexico City, where he took a flight to San Antonio, Texas; or rather, towards freedom, where his family expected him.

Since then, publicly, nothing has been heard of about Ponchis.

  1. Great more publicity to a criminal!
    This attention should deviate others from joining. However, expect more recruits to make a name for themselves. As if being a martyr for a gang is PRICELESS.
    Then again many are a product of ones environment.

  2. great reporting, thank you chivas

    this opens up so many avenues of discussion. I had to make a mental left turn thinking he was an impoverished Mexican kid with no options to the realization this as an American kid.

  5. Hard to understand, why would a young American citizen with the opportunity of a bright future would cross into Mexico and join a cartel. The only thing I can think of is the influence of others and misleading music. Alot of Mexicans would've taken advantage and made a productive life in his place. Never take those opportunities as Americans for granted.

    1. There are many Americans whose odds are stacked against them. A political system who can care less about those forgotten American citizens.

    4. I had the opportunity to know people from Logan Heights back in the 90s. Many kids had a gang mentality and the influence of drugs and money push them to go to Tijuana to work for the Arellano Felix. Sometimes is not that you don’t have money or opportunity.

    6. Everyone has a shot at the dream.. No its not always an even playing field but no other place in the world are you presented with such opportunity. Depends on your demeanor and how bad you want it. So dont ever say that, "Not everyone has a shot at the American dream.."

    1. He should’ve taken advantage of a free education and looked into college even if it was a community college, the US grants financial aid to permanent residents so how will a natural born citizen not have opportunities!

      What he didn’t have was parents who guided him. His parents are 100% at fault

    2. Died for the sins of his father .

    3. LOL. Way to make it a race issue, with the evil White Man keeping this kid from getting opportunities. That's just a bunch of non sense. Border towns are filled with minorities just like him. Which would only give him more chances of thriving, getting an education and a job. Us Mexicans need to stop passing the buck and take responsibility for our own actions.

    4. 7:24 AGREE!!!!! LMAOOOOOOO I don't understand what does a White person seeing you has to do with anything, many Blacks dont fuck with Hispanics either especially the Hispanics in LA. Whats wrong with these people???? When has a White person you encountered in the streets taken your citizenship? NONSENSE. No white man forced him to be a sicario.

      The only reality here is the Mama saw that money coming in and decided to turn a blind eye to it. Nobody can tell me you cant control a 12 y/o (since by 17 when he died he had been in the biz for 5 years)!

  9. These young kids never think about the consequences or collateral damage. They only see the power, money, and social position.

    I encourage anyone interested in this lifestyle to first take a good look at your mother and ask yourself if what you do, will reflect badly on her good name and if you want to put your mother in the position of having to go to the morgue to identify whats left of your body and wasted life. Your mother will feel she failed you and failed as a mother... and it will be her who will live with that the rest of her days.

  11. Sicarios should be shot on site, don’t waste time or resources on autopsy, don’t give body to the family. Sicario carcass should be dumped in a landfill, like the trash they have become. No more thought given to them after that.

  21. Per earlier post.... yes, every American kid has an opportunity. Where the problem lies is the bad influence from brothers, uncles, y even sometimes mothers, etc.

  22. Good riddance what a bunch of losers. Being a narco doesn't pay, at least not for long. Sooner or later you end of dead. Hope your fancy 17 years of life was worth it. I wonder what it must be like... all that money, fancy cars and homes but always looking over your shoulder waiting for someone to gun you down. Thanks but no thanks I don't need the CIA and DEA looking for me. We all know how that will always end. See what happened to lazcano and escobar to give you an idea.
