Mexico City mansion owned by 'El Señor de los Cielos' will be auctioned next week

"MX" for Borderland Beat

A Mexico City mansion where Juárez Cartel leader and millionaire drug lord Amado Carrillo Fuentes ('El Señor de los Cielos', The Lord of the Skies) once lived will be put for auction on May 3 by the newly-created Institute to Return Stolen Goods to the People (INDEP). The auction's starting price will be MXN$53 million (US$2.1 million). The mansion is in Lomas del Pedregal, an upscale residential neighborhood in Álvaro Obregón borough.

For many years, Carrillo Fuentes avoided capture from Mexican and U.S. authorities because he was successful at maintaining a low-profile. Several high-ranking members of the Mexican Army were also convicted for providing him protection. During his tenure, he amassed a multi-million dollar fortune by successfully using planes to smuggle drugs into the U.S. from Mexico. Carrillo Fuentes died on 4 July 1997 in Santa Monica Hospital in Mexico City following a plastic surgery.

Background and event
The first auction of 2020 was held in March. Multiple assets were sold off, including a house owned by the top money launderer of Los Zetas founder Omar Lórmendez Pitalúa ("El Pita"), as reported by Borderland Beat.

This is the second auction held by the INDEP in 2020. It will be held in Complejo Cultural Los Pinos, what used to be the official residence and office of the President of Mexico. In this event, they will auction 107 pieces of jewelry, 77 vehicles (six which are not drive-able), 5 airplanes, 5 real estate properties and 7 batches of miscellaneous merchandise.

The assets that will be auctioned are from State of Mexico, Baja California, Chihuahua, Colima, Durango, Jalisco, Michoacan, Nuevo Leon, Queretaro, Quintana Roo, Sonora, Veracruz and Mexico City. All of them total up to MXN$130.1 million (US5.2 million).

Unlike other auctions done in the past, the INDEP will only allow 15 participants to enter Complejo Cultural Los Pinos. This measure is done to maintain social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Other participants may join the auction online via Zoom or by calling in.

Media will not be allowed at the auction, but the event will be posted on YouTube after it is over. Officials stated that the proceeds generated from the event will be used to build shelter homes.

    4. So far so good. Other than go by what you assume, have you actually followed up on what the president does with the funds? On other occasions he's converted confiscated properties into schools colleges and trade schools.

    3. Yet Americans would buy a U.S. serial killers house in a hearbeat.
      This is how racism is expressed unwillingly but perhaps knowingly in America.

    5. please for the love of God if I hear the word "racism" one more time in an inappropriate context I'm gonna scream. It's just a word used to attack white people, when we all know everyone can be "racist" against someone else... no one cares anymore bc YOU have worn out the words meaning

    7. 3:08 ok asshole. You don't like to hear the word racism yet you love to belittle anything Mwxican or related. What should we call it then?
      No. Not everyone is a little racist either.

      Delete
    8. @243, I've never "belittled anything Mexican or related".. I'm just sick of people pointing and Calling shit racist that isn't. You call white people "racist" all the time only as a way to attack, and it's one of MANY reasons why the left is losing the ideological battle in the US..avg people see through that nonsense and it undermines your argument and credibility when it comes to cultural issues

  6. If the walls in that mansion can speak. If they can speak they would say that Amado was either closing multimillion dollar deals with the colombians talking to high ranking politicos and badmouthing the Arellano Felix

  9. Looks familiar from movie traffic where general gets arrested( If Los pinos. is not the official residence then where does Lopez stay? Not motel 6 after he leaves office will it turn back to official residence? This guy doesn't even have secret service protection or official vehicle bulletproof either this guy is stupid and ignorant or someone told him he's safe ?? Really no wonder he never goes after the bad guys : he's no Calderon.

    1. 11:52 AMLO lives in the National Palace, needs no weekend residence to traffick influence like other high flying naco-presidentes.
      Fack FECAL and EPN.
      ACF was murdered for betraying and stealing from his colombian parnas represented by don Castor "El Gordo" Ochoa in Cd Juarez, 20 tons of cocaine was too much temptation for el Señor de los Cielos and his Air America owned AIRLINES...
      But they sent black roses to AFC's funeral reading:

  10. So who u think killed Amado MX? Arellano Felix or MexGov. Or was it really an unfortunate accident?

    ReplyDelete
  11. He “ he amassed a multi-million dollar fortune”. How about a multi billion dollar fortune. Amado offered to payoff Mexico’s government debt to remain free and he was moving cocaina 24/7 in 727 size planes. Pablo and his engineer en Ojinaga couldn’t keep up with making new runways or storage bunkers to store the packages.
