Texas: CDN Sicario sentenced to death in the shooting and decapitation of roommate

A Tarrant County jury sentenced convicted killer Hector Acosta to the death penalty for the September 2017 murders of Erick Zelaya and 17-year-old Iris Chirinos in Arlington.

Acosta, a self-proclaimed sicario (“hitman”) for the Cartel Del Noreste shot his then-roommate Zelaya and his girlfriend Chirinos in their sleep, before mutilating their bodies with a machete and two-by-four. He decapitated Zelaya, and after dumping the bodies in a shallow grave in his backyard, he rode a bicycle through the neighborhood to a walking trail a few blocks away where he left Zelaya’s head along with a sign threatening future violence. Acosta claimed to have killed the couple in retaliation for a past drive-by incident in which he believed Zelaya had been a participant.

During the punishment phase of the trial, the prosecution introduced evidence of another capital murder Acosta was believed to have committed in a Fort Worth house. In July 2017, Acosta and accomplices bound and viciously beat Triston Algiene while robbing him. After Algiene gave them the wrong PIN number for his bank account, he was shot to death. Acosta then cut his body in half, buried him under the house and covered his body with cement. Arlington Police Detective Grant Gildon received information about this murder and informed Fort Worth Police, who discovered the body after digging up the concrete slab. The hard work of Gildon, fellow Arlington PD Detective Michael Barakat and Fort Worth Police Detectives Jerry Cedillo and Ernie Pate was instrumental in bringing Acosta to justice.

“Have you ever knowingly in your life sat in the room with a more dangerous person?” lead prosecutor Kevin Rousseau asked the jury in closing arguments for the punishment phase. “He can’t follow the rules of a cartel, but you are expected to believe he’ll follow the rules of a prison warden? He is extraordinarily violent. He deals in terror. It’s his job.”

A native of Monterrey, Mexico, Acosta allegedly showed an interest in gang life from as early as age 7. He participated in multiple gangs in both Mexico and Houston before joining the Cartel Del Noreste for which he claimed to have performed kidnappings, tortures and other murders. Evidence was presented that while being held in the jail awaiting trial, Acosta attempted to start a drug trafficking operation.

“Acosta is not a product of a bad environment,” said prosecutor Tim Rodgers. “He is the bad element in his environment. That’s what he is and what he wants to be.”

Jurors deliberated for just over four hours before sentencing Acosta to the death penalty.

“Some people can get better. Some are just bad,” said Rodgers.

  1. Glad this MF got caught, bringing crime from Mexico, that's the last thing we need in America. To bad his 1st victim did not have a gun to kill the criminal before he got killed. This was a true bad hombres, Texas honors death penalty.

    2. So what’s the difference if an American does a similar crime that is similar to what Mexican crime is?? A crime is a crime, doesn’t matter what country your from!

    5. Texas does not execute right away, It takes at least a decade. When you are sentenced to death your case automatically goes into appeals. Average time on death row in Texas is 10 years. I've studied the Texas Death Row long enough to know they don't execute right away. I have a friend who is on death row and awaiting his death, His name is John Allen Rubio and He has been on DR since 2004 for killing his children in March 2003

    1. And what makes you think the US don't have these people already?
      Criminal organizations operate with henchmen. Look at our US prison population (exceeding all other countries).
      Along with those who are legitimate for doing so.

  10. that's not the work of a sicario. that's the work of an emotional psychopath, not a trained killer who does it as a profession. real sicarios would piss on this guy

  11. Mexican sicarios in the US basically kill people they know. The victims might not be saints. By contrast, male members of the majority demographic in the US (rhymes with blight), will kill innocent children, old people, teens. This guy should be put down, but keep things in perspective.

    5. JamesBrown, after reading your statements, I realize that I don't agree with most of them. Therefore I'm going to address each point that you've made.

      "Mexican sicarios in the US basically kill people they know."

      You're acting like this is a general rule of thumb. There is no widespread evidence to that points to a personal connection between various incidents regarding sicarios and their victims on U.S. soil. An example of this is Juan Guerrero Chapa, a former Southlake, Texas resident with past ties to elements of the Gulf Cartel, and the sicarios who shot him.

      "By contrast, male members of the majority demographic in the US (rhymes with blight), will kill innocent children, old people, teens."

      This is, by far, your most inaccurate (and ignorant) statement. While there are many cases of mass shooters being white, you're failing to acknowledge the existence of mass shooters who weren't white. Again, I'll list some examples.

      The perpetrator of the Virginia Tech shooting was a Korean immigrant named Seung-Hui Cho.

      The Appalachian School of Law shooting was initiated by a former student and Nigerian immigrant Peter Odighizuwa.

      The Los Angeles International Airport shooting was committed by an Egyptian national named Hesham Mohamed Hadayet.

      The D.C. Sniper Attacks were carried out by two African-Americans named Lee Boyd Malvo and John Allen Muhammad.

      The Red Lake Indian Reservation shooting was done by a 16 year-old Native American student named Jeffrey James Weiss.

      A latino named Dominick Sergio Maldonado was responsible for the Tacoma Mall shooting.

      The Washington Naval Yard shooter? African-American.

      The 2009 Fort Hood shooter? Palestinian descent.

      The 2014 Fort Hood shooter? Puerto Rican immigrant.

      The San Bernadino shooters? Syed Rizwan Farook was of Pakistani descent. His wife was Pakistani from Saudi Arabia.

      The Orlando Nightclub shooter? Afghani descent.

      I could go on, but you probably get the idea by now. My point is that assholes come in all colors.

      "This guy should be put down..."

      This is the only part of what you stated that I actually agree with. Torture this pinche animal until he points to his friends, then send him screaming into Hell.

      "...but keep things in perspective."

      At this point in time your perspective seems to be skewed.

      Mr. Brown, what you need to do is stop listening to putos like Don Lemon and Jorge Ramos when they starting crying "racism". After that, you need to start doing some of your own research into the topics that you're planning to comment on.

  16. This guy is a cartel sicario "wanna-be" claiming to be part of mexico's poorest cartel.. I'm willing to bet that he is not cartel related at all.. at best he's some street gangster punk kid that committed horrendous crimes in order to prove himself cold hearted.. are cartels members operating in the US? you bet your ass they are.. but cartels in the states keep a low profile while still maintaining there ruthlesness, they will not have loud-mouth attention seeking POS like this guy running cartel operations in the US because they would be squashed immediately by law enforcement, the main goal of a cartel is to run a business, if this guy were cartel connected he'd be taken across the border and used as cannon fodder at best..only michoacanos run sloppy like that

    1. Yeah the cdn are shit but the fact that they have nuevo laredo is a gold mine if you can work it. Thats why beltran wanted it and chapo wanted it. That's the main reason they have endured. Cdn cant be the brokest disorganized group in mexico. All cartels or groups that are in the border got a advantage on the rest.

    2. Juarez and Tijuana are the REAL goldmines, when it comes to drug trafficking due to tunnels.. tamaulipas does have upperhand when it comes to human smuggling, too bad you can't build a tunnel under the Rio Grande
