Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano "El Lazca"

Rumors that Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano “El Lazca”, head of Los Zetas and Ivan Velazquez Caballero "El 50" or “El Taliban”, believed to be the chief of operations of Los Zetas in Zacatecas, would be attending the funeral in Fresnillo of Heriberto Centeno Madrid was the reason that Mexican Marine units mounted the operation that killed 22 suspected Zetas this past Friday, July 1.

Centeno Madrid, known as “Comandante Ardilla” or “Comandante Centeno”, was the Zeta comandante killed Tuesday June 14th in La Lobera, Jalisco when a large group of gunmen was intercepted by the military and Jalisco state police.

Naval intelligence had knowledge that the funeral mass and burial of Centeno Madrid was scheduled for Friday. His body had been delivered to Fresnillo on Thursday.

Unofficial intelligence sources mentioned that the delivery of the body was delayed in order to allow time for the attendance of senior Zeta leaders.

Centeno Madrid was reportedly the head of the Fresnillo plaza and was a close and trusted lieutenant of Heriberto Lazcano.

After the fighting between the Marines and Zeta gunmen ended Friday afternoon the funeral services for Centeno Madrid took place undisturbed, with no senior Zetas in attendance.

Ivan Velazquez Caballero

Ivan Velazquez Caballero, "El Taliban or El 50", reportedly the head of Zeta operations in Zacatecas. Velazquez Caballero is rummored to be seriously ill with cancer.

Los Zetas consolidated their hold on Zacatecas during the governorship of Amalia Garcia of the PRD party from 2004 to 2010.

It is rumored that the family of Miguel Angel Treviño Morales "Z-40", the operations chief and second in command of Los Zetas lives in the municipality of Calera, Zacatecas.

Heriberto Lazcano is said to own several businesses in the state.

The body of Heriberto Centeno Madrid "Comandante Ardilla, Comandante Centeno", killed in a clash with federal and state forces in La Lobera, Jalisco. Tuesday June 14th.



  1. Too bad they weren't there at the funeral and the Mexican marines could have wasted them ( Lazcano and Z-40)

  2. Just wondering did the browsville Herald ever admit or retract their story about el Lazca being killed in Matamoros? Just wondering...

  3. Its nice to see unofficial intelligence sources weighing in. I hope they synchronized their Captain Crunch super spy sun dial watches.

  4. Ivan Velazquez Caballero is seriously ill with cancer. Awwwww so sad.

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOO!!! now your feeling what you made others feel! DIE ASSHOLE!!!

  5. LOL is it just me or does Comandante Ardilla look like hes posing dead? like i know hes dead but i find it funny how hes laying down on the ground looking like he was drunk and fell over.

  6. lol @ Anon 8:25....

    God works in mysterious ways! =D

  7. @ Anon 11:32 - The reporter Tweeted the other day that he is sticking by the story. Seems to be on pretty shaky ground though IMO.

  8. 3 leaders of the Fresnillo "plaza" have been killed since 2009.
    1.El Chiquilin
    2.Israel Nava Cortez "El Ostion" (many say he is still alive)
    3.Comandante Centeno
    I wonder who is next ?

  9. I hope that all the zetas get killed or get captured, y aribba LOS CABALLEROS TEMPLARIOS y ariba EL COMPA TUTA

  10. Have you noticed all the zeta captures in July and August? The U.S. has captured Lazcano and it hasn't been announced because he made a deal with the U.S. and Lazca has given up information that's lead to these important Zeta captures.

    Watch for more arrests and captures, especially in the state of Coahuila. Watch for big-time money launderers in relatively little known city of Monclova including one who is a BIG executive and shareholder of steelmaker AHMSA with last name Villarreal and the son of a big time bus/transportation company in the same city with last name Estrella who have also transported drugs and stashed drugs and arms.

    Heard of big busts in Sabinas and San Buenaventura? These are small cities close to Monclova which are near ranches owned by Villarreal and Estrella.

    Keep watching and see.

  11. what? don't think so..Lazcano was never captured by anyone and is very much alive! First of all, the United States is not "actively" looking for Lazcano and they have absolutely no authority or jurisdiction in Mexico! Second, if Lazcano was indeed captured or killed..he would be paraded in front of the media or pictures of his body would be splashed all over the news because it would be a major victory for the Calderon administration..they would not keep such a huge "political boost" a secret. Third, the Zetas second in command Z-40 Trevino would take over the top spot and such a major occurrence would be heard "on the street." Fourth, the Zetas organization has sufferred such heavy blows in arrests and deaths because of their reckless behavior and their inability to be descreet. Lastly, maybe the Zetas that have been captured alive are the ones doimg the talking and betraying other Zetas...

  12. I hope all zetas die because they kill and steal from the working class.i hope los matazetas kills them all.

  13. los zetas rule all mexicos there here in california to does templaris guys are wack indians from michoacan seriously

  14. soon asshole ...soon you will do the duckwalk you fuckn z basradr
