Manuel Bartlett Díaz, the Director of Mexico's Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), is the newest suspect in the murder of US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who was killed by members of the Guadalajara Cartel in Mexico in 1985.

This new information surfaced after several protected witnesses said that Bartlett met with organized crime figures to plan Camarena's murder. 

Officials of the US Department of Justice, who spoke anonymously to Mexican news magazine Proceso, said that Bartlett would be arrested should he enter the US.

The unnamed US officials said that some of the protected witnesses framing Bartlett do not know each other, which is a strong indication that he may have been involved or knows more about the case that he is willing to admit.

"His name appears on numerous occasions in multiple investigation files of the Camarena case. If he enters the US, he would be detained for questioning," the US official confirmed to Proceso.

DEA agent Camarena was kidnapped on February 7, 1985 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, and murdered two days later by former state judicial police officers under the orders of the Guadalajara Cartel, a criminal group headed by Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo, and Rafael Caro Quintero.

Camarena was brutally tortured for two days and purposely kept alive. His body was later found in the neighboring state of Michoacan.

    2. Refusing to cooperate with private foreign power generation companies used to exploit and steal from México, is Bartlett's sin these days, but as minister of governance when Camarena got tortured and murdered by CIA employed narcos cartel de guadalajara members with DFS charolas the US said nothing, stopped investigations and gave presidential pardons to more than 100 of their drug trafficking "rogue Agents", including felix ismael rodriguez mendigutia...

  2. It would be really nice for the entire truth be told about this after all these years. No info redacted by DOJ all parties involved named along with there rolls regardless of who they were.

    1. That's one of the shitty things of real crime vs crime on TV: there is seldom closure and fairness for the victims.

    2. Speaking of crime on TV, Manuel Bartlett Diaz is the politico who has his name bleeped in the Ruben Zuno Arce interrogation scenes in Narcos: Mexico. Also, Charles Bowden was publishing reports on Bartlett Diaz’s involvement in the Kiki murder 20 years ago. Pretty much all the same things DOJ officials are telling Proceso now.

    1. This is why he never ran for president. Someone would inevitably dig this up to use against him in a campaign. I honestly don’t know if he would have been any worse than Salinas Gotari.

    1. Competition on the US trying hard to screw and squeeze PEMEX in tejas, after robbing PEMEX OIL, HUACHICOL AND DINEROS. Mext step is the US steals the refinery from México as they did with Venezuela's CITGO and global gold supplies. Lucky Dos Bocas will be there just in case, solat goes down like a mist matched wrestler.

      Judiciales estatales y federales were just the luggage handlers. Winshield washers of today.
