Sinaloa Cartel: Jose Torres Marrufo aka “Jaguar” appears to made a deal with the U.S.

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat  TY GUS Pacer and US Atty Office Texas


Government documents filed last week indicate that Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo (aka “Jaguar”) sicario for the Sinaloa Cartel has reached a plea agreement with the United States.

The government website to access records is down, however Alan Feuer posted the dockets list, see below, indicating a “plea addendum”.  Most of the dockets (documents) in the case are sealed.  

Torres was extradited to the US in May of 2019.  See below for the press release at that time.



High Ranking Sinaloa Cartel Member Extradited to the United States
Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo (aka “Jaguar”) charged in April 2012 RICO indictment alleging conspiracy to commit murder, impingar, money laundering and drug distribution
Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo (aka “Jaguar”) has been extradited from Mexico to face federal racketeering charges in the Western District of Texas, stated U.S. Attorney John F. Bash; Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in Charge Kyle W. Williamson, El Paso Division; FBI Special Agent in Charge Emmerson Buie, Jr., El Paso Division; and, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey C. Boshek, II, Dallas Division.

Torres Marrufo remains in federal custody awaiting his initial appearance in federal court tomorrow morning in El Paso.


“Through close and sustained cooperation with our partners in Mexico, we are bringing cartel leaders to justice,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge Williamson.  “This extradition sends a message to those leaders that we will relentlessly pursue them, no matter where they are or how long it takes.”



“The FBI El Paso Division is pleased with Mexico's efforts to bring to justice a leader from one of the most violent criminal enterprises that has terrorized the El Paso and Juarez area,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Buie. “The cooperation between our two countries' law enforcement agencies is a powerful force in disrupting the Sinaloa Cartel Organization's criminal activities that instill fear and threaten the safety of our citizens.”

“No one person, community or country should endure the brutality described in these charges,” stated ATF Special Agent in Charge Boshek. “The cooperation between U.S. and Mexican officials sends a clear message of our collaborative commitment to investigate and prosecute members of these criminal organizations.”

In April 2012, Torres Marrufo was charged in the same federal grand jury indictment as Joaquin Guzman Loera, aka “El Chapo,” Ismael Zambada Garcia aka “Mayo,” and 21 other individuals responsible for the operations and management of the Sinaloa Cartel (Cartel) charging them with violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

The fourteen-count grand jury indictment, returned on April 11, 2012, charges conspiracy to violate the RICO statute; conspiracy to possess more than five kilograms of cocaine and over 1000 kilograms of marijuana; conspiracy to import more than five kilograms of cocaine and 1000 kilograms of marijuana; conspiracy to commit money laundering; conspiracy to possess firearms in furtherance of drug trafficking crimes; murder in furtherance of a continuing criminal enterprise (CCE) or drug trafficking; engaging in a CCE in furtherance of drug trafficking; conspiracy to kill in a foreign country; kidnapping; and violent crimes in aid of racketeering.

According to the indictment, the purpose of the Sinaloa Cartel is to smuggle large quantities of marijuana and cocaine, as well as other drugs, into the United States for distribution. Laundered proceeds of drug trafficking activities are returned to Cartel members and are used in part to purchase properties related to the daily functioning of the Cartel, including real estate, firearms, ammunition, bullet proof vests, radios, telephones, uniforms and vehicles. In an effort to maintain control of all aspects of their operations, the Cartel and it’s associates, including members of the Gente Nueva (“New People”) and the Artistas Asesinos (“Murder artists”), kidnap, torture and murder those who lose or steal assets belonging to, are disloyal to, or are enemies of the Cartel. This includes the Juarez Cartel, a competing drug organization who at the time was led by Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, as well as it’s enforcement arm known as La Linea and the Barrio Aztecas. Oftentimes, murders committed by the Cartel involve brutal acts of violence as well the public display of the victim along with banners bearing written warnings to those who would cross the Cartel.

The indictment references two acts of violence allegedly committed by members of the Cartel. First, the indictment alleges that in September 2009, Torres Marrufo, Gabino Salas-Valenciano, Fernando Arellano-Romero and Mario Iglesias-Villegas, under the leadership of Joaquin Guzman and Ismael Zambada, conspired to kidnap and murder a Horizon City, Texas, resident. Specifically, Torres Marrufo ordered the kidnapping of the victim to answer for the loss of a 670-pound load of marijuana seized by Border Patrol at the Sierra Blanca checkpoint on August 5, 2009. After the kidnapping, the victim was taken to Juarez where Torres Marrufo interrogated him and ordered that he be killed. On September 8, 2009, the victim’s mutilated body was discovered in Juarez.

Second, the indictment alleges that on May 7, 2010, Torres Marrufo, Fernando Arellano-Romero and Mario Iglesias-Villegas, under the leadership of Joaquin Guzman and Ismael Zambada, conspired to kidnap and murder an American citizen and two members of his family. Specifically, Torres Marrufo caused an individual in El Paso to travel to a wedding ceremony in Juarez to confirm the identity of a target. The target was the groom, a U.S. citizen and a resident of Columbus, NM. Under Torres Marrufo’s orders, the groom, his brother and his uncle were all kidnapped during the wedding ceremony and subsequently tortured and murdered. Their bodies were discovered by Juarez police a few days later in the bed of an abandoned pickup truck. Additionally, a fourth person was killed during the kidnapping at the wedding ceremony.

This investigation resulted in the seizure of hundreds of kilograms of cocaine, and thousands of pounds of marijuana in cities throughout the U.S. Law enforcement also took possession of millions of dollars in drug proceeds which were destined to be returned to the Cartel in Mexico. Agents and officers likewise seized hundreds of weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition intended to be smuggled into Mexico to assist the Cartel’s battle to take control of one of the key drug trafficking corridors used to bring drugs into the U.S.

This investigation was conducted by the DEA, FBI and ATF together with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Marshals Service, El Paso Police Department, El Paso Sheriff’s Office and Texas Department of Public Safety.  The Department of Justice’s Office of International Affairs provided significant support in securing and coordinating Torres Marrufo’s arrest and extradition.  U.S. Attorney Bash also expresses his appreciation to the U.S Attorney’s Office in New Mexico; Attorney General of Mexico Alejandro Gertz Manero and his attorneys; and, to law enforcement authorities in Mexico for their assistance.

Upon conviction, Marrufo faces up to life in federal prison.

    1. You have it twisted my friend, he was never offered an opportunity to rat---not even discussions about the possibility of a deal. He was "IT" the big one, the example, the evidence, that our nation is not wasting, time, money and lives in a failed drug war that was DOA.

      Delete
    2. Pretty lousy evidence with all due respect, everyone knows that it didn't stop any drugs or killings. It's going to be an ongoing cycle. Drugs are easier to find and cheaper than they were ten years ago bigger variety too. Chapo deserves to be killed for being a pedo. Liek the Mexican Micheal Jackson, everyone looks up to him but looks past the fact that he's a pedo.

    3. El Mochomo was the only one who didn’t snitch, and his brother Arturo who went out shooting like a real mafioso suppose to do since they claim to be so tough in corridos.

    5. Chapo snitched on ARELLANOS and beltranes.. It's a fact given by an DEA agent

    6. Both of these lames are dumb! Chapo never punked Mencho it was an still is the other way around. And as far as the US not wasting time and money that’s a joke right. Pretty naive because the drug war is a farce. Unless you’ve worked for the government and know how corrupt things are don’t write nothing.

    8. Fake,that shit never happened! People stop reading shit that never happened,once again mencho DID NOT kidnapp chapitos! It was lic and someone from inside chapitos crew

    9. Chapos call to Mencho as you said, never happened. Maybe he did have access to phone calls to his closest people, maybe through his lawyers but your statement is inaccurate.

      Believe what you see and not what you hear, this well known statement applies here perfectly.

      Los Menores release was carefully negotiated by Mayo. He was the main guy here and as a matter of fact, since he follows the classic code they had, if a problem can be solved with agreements, he has always been known to rather negotiate than fight.

      Now whatever agreement they had is obviously not all known, but part of the deal apparently is the agreement of territorial shifts. On CDS controlled areas We can all see the reduction that immediately followed and at the same time the rapid expansion of CJNG on these areas which obviously caused fighting between cells of both cartels.

      Now i wonder if part of the agreement was preventing a war because again the fighting is between cells in areas outside of both states and not both cartels directly, cds doesnt go and fight in jalisco and jalisco doesnt fight in Sinaloa not even threats between the bosses like cjng does to marro, did to tuta and lazca el abuelo el 40 etc
      And how CDS would do to beltranes and zetas.

      But i can be wrong. Its just what makes more sense than the chapo to mencho call

    10. Chapo was never offered the chance to make a deal because everybody else had made a deal, the government wanted Chapo because he was the posterboy, the one with the attention, the legendary one. The way to show progress on a failed drug war is by grabbing the "main one". The government doesnt care about the others like Damaso, Chino, Serafin. Doesnt care if theyre locked up or not because theyre not the main ones, so it offered them deals. For the charges they all face, they can easily do life so a deal of only a few years for info is a sweet deal. Now many say they only say old info or things already known. Well the government already knows everything they need to know. If they know where to get all these guys when they want, they know everything but the point is that they need these guys to say it out of their own words for the judge nothing else. It is all with the intention to have the judge impose the maximum sentence on chapo, make an example out of him. There is no point of making a deal with chapo if they want him locked up forever. Why make deals with everybody to incriminate chapo just to end up making a deal with him too? it would be useless, having him is enough. His info is probably about high level government officials and like I said the government already knows everything, they dont need him to talk about his political associates and corruption, thats dealt with differently and quietly between governments, example under the threat of terrorist designation, Luna suddenly falls.

      And Thats why Mencho is next, he is now the spotlight, even if he wasnt violent and you had small groups that chopped up bodies daily and even if cjng didnt that still wouldnt matter and mencho would still be next even if he isnt a threat to the USA you wont see cjng convoys shooting it up in the USA, even if cds sells more drugs in the usa than cjng and mencho prefers bussiness overseas than the USA, he is still next, again in a failed drug war, its the most admired criminal who they make an example of on their quest to show progress.

      others made him the fall guy, but he was only their drug trafficking mule, el chapo got made only after being a driver for miguel angel felix gallardo who used to be a federal police commander and DFS puppet after being governor Sanchez Solis' bodyguard.
      el chapo just knew where to drive to.

    1. El JT sang like a bird, El ondeado didn't. So why would u.s. keep on giving deals if Chapo is locked up and never getting out. Mayo and Los chapitos they want the king snake and the jrs. If I were them I'd be on point they better not get careless cause amlo will take their bribes and when they get caught extradite without hesitation.

    4. 9:10 el pinche Barbas got assassinated with his hands up trying to surrender after he could not watch his defeat anymore, I even doubt he shot a slingshot in the last firefight he was involved, he was too busy trying to get it up for his female guests without success, the instructions were to shot to kill and kill him, because Mexican Secretary of Public Security Genarco Gwrcia Luna had run out of room trying to cover up his crimes and treasons with one finger up his ass...genarco had even got his own federal police commanders assassinated including Edgar Millan at his own parents home for letting ABL escape the last ambush days before the marinas got the job done...
      ABL was a big threat, but his commanders knew more about garcia luna's crimes, just ask Luis Cardenas Palomino.
      By the way, international gangster cowboy Rudi Giulianni once worked in Mexico city for about one year for 10 million dollars...wonder what he did for his Money, specially after his specious Drug Dealings in Ukrainia

From the KingRat™ to Chapo and all the way down the criminal structure, puro mariconcito que a la hora de pagar se raja cómo lo corriente que son. Asi son todos los de CDS pero no todos los de Sinaloa porque también tienen a hombres de palabra y acción. 9:07,9:10,9:13,9:14 is the same fool that always writes about the "bravery" of the Lions of CDS and Mencho, CJNG, Michoacán, Jalisco are some cowards, newjacks, copycats, mata inocentes y amarrados y blah, blah, blah.

    2. It points more to the and more that they were helping Sinaloa, not only Luna but the politicians in the US. It's all one big conspiracy. The US definitely had other intentions...
      I don't know why you go off about an AR-15... People can be killed with any weapon. The cartels killing people proves that it's people with bad intentions that kill. Not your regular Joe who wants to collect and shoot guns. You gonna ban machetes too cause of the decapitation and shopping up bodies?
