Jose Rodolfo Villarreal-Hernandez "El Gato' Added to Ten Most Wanted Fugitives List

 Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat FBI Gov Press Release

El Gato” Allegedly Had Victim Tracked and Murdered in Texas; $1 Million Reward Available



The ‘Most Wanted’ man sent sicarios to texas to kill Texas attorney Juan Jesus Guerrero Chapa the personal lawyer for the leader of the Gulf cartel.  Villarreal-Hernandez, who wanted Chapa killed as revenge for his father’s murder.

Jose Rodolfo Villarreal-Hernandez, wanted for allegedly directing his associates to track and murder a man in Southlake, Texas, has been added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. The Department of State’s Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program is offering a reward of up to $1 million for information leading directly to his arrest.

Villarreal-Hernandez, also known as “El Gato,” is believed to hold an active leadership position in the Beltran Leyva Drug Trafficking Organization within the region of San Pedro Garza Garcia, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He is also believed to be responsible for numerous murders in Mexico.

The victim of the Texas murder, 43, was shot while sitting in the passenger seat of his vehicle outside an upscale shopping center in a Dallas-Fort Worth suburb on May 22, 2013. His wife was standing near the driver’s side door when her husband was killed. And the brazen ambush occurred in the early evening hours, while the center was full of shoppers.

According to evidence and testimony gathered in the trials of those accused of tracking and killing the man, Villarreal-Hernandez ordered and financed a multi-year effort to find and watch the victim and then kill him. 

Investigators believe Villarreal-Hernandez had a long-standing personal grudge against the victim.

Several of the individuals involved in tracking and killing the victim have already pleaded guilty, have been tried and convicted, or are awaiting trial in federal court.

“The fact that Villarreal-Hernandez was willing to send people to the United States to track someone within the United States and then execute that person in a neighborhood in Texas—we need to set the example that this will not be tolerated,” said Special Agent Gary Koenig.

Koenig has been investigating Villarreal-Hernandez with the FBI’s Dallas Field Office since the shooting occurred in 2013. El Gato’s apparent role in trafficking drugs into the United States and the evidence linking him to more than 10 murders in Mexico have made this case a top priority for both U.S. and Mexican authorities. 

“He’s a ruthless guy,” Koenig said.

The FBI and Mexican authorities feel the publicity of the Top Ten list and such a large reward will help generate the tips they need to bring El Gato to justice.

“He’s a ruthless guy.”

Villarreal-Hernandez is 42 years old. He has black hair and brown eyes and stands 5 feet 4 inches tall. He is believed to weigh about 165 pounds and is likely hiding in Mexico. Villarreal-Hernandez should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Anyone with information on Villarreal-Hernandez’s whereabouts should call 1-800-CALL-FBI, or contact your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate. You can also submit a tip online to tips.fbi.gov.

    2. Lol. It took the dea almost 8 years to initiate this for killing a US citizen on US soil...wtf¿? The US system is as slow as Mexico’s! El Gato is probably dead by now!

  2. Said he likely spent over $1m just to hunt down and track this guy and have him killed. It took them multiple trips and tries until they found the lawyer, searched all over US until they found him. Shows you the reach and ruthlessness, but it’s hard to believe they’re not associated anyway other than his enemy lawyer...

  3. Texas a hardcore death penalty state. They fast track death row inmates there. Hopefully soon he is apprehended and extradited.

    1. More eagerness from the evidence mounted on this individual to apprehend.
      Nothing more.

    2. Mexico will never agree to the extradition unless death penalty is off the table. That is part of the extradition treaty between the U.S. and Mexico.

    3. @7:06 I agree 100% about the Texas Department of Corrections and their conveyor belt to the death chamber. That said there is usually a big fiasco surrounding the execution of a Mexican National. I know of one sicario who is on death row currently. He is a bit different. He was born and raised in Texas. After he accidentally shot his "boss" with cross fire he had a hit out out on him. He was so scared he actually called LE in Texas-he knew the agent he called-and worked out a plan to surrender. It will be interesting to see what happens once his date with the death chamber nears.

  5. But the murder described can't happen in the USA because gun owners, who are also power lifters, stop that.

  7. Sending people over from Mexico won't be tolerated. Give me a break...it's going on all the time. One high profile murder of an attorney, and it's send in the calvary. How about consistency in enforcing the law and securing the border?!? This wishy-washy, flip-flopping in policy for policing and border protection is wrong.

  8. This is how Americans deal with scum.

    The politicians in Mexico would simply hug El Puzzy Cat and take bribes from him.

  9. Well, the lawyer appears to have had a debt and was not making any effort to pay, what's a man to do when nobody is trying to help him collect? Granados may have had something to do with murdering el Gato's father.
    On the other hand, i want the boss of the Red Mafiya Semion Mogilevich back on the FBI ten most wanted poster, until he is captured or dies as it is supposed to be done.

  14. El Gato is a dead man walking, he might as well start hiding in the caves like Mencho does. Living in a cave sounds prehistoric.
