The Juarez Cartel Sinks into Oblivion Since the Death of Rodolfo Carrillo Fuentes

Posted on Borderland Beat  by Siskiyou_kid

Chapo Guzman ordered the killing of Rodolfo Carrillo, the brother of Amado Carrillo, marking the split absolute between the Sinaloa and Juarez Cartels. Chapo's brother was killed in prison in retaliation.   Nine years after the death of Rodolfo Carrillo Fuentes, the groups sinks into oblivion....
"Let's pray - said the father of the St. Francis of Assisi church, of Navolato, for the eternal repose of Rodolfo Carrillo Fuentes". He mentioned five more people, whose families or friends should pay, the same as the Carrillos, the 50 pesos charged for being mentioned in the sermon.
No one in the family was there, not at least in the evening mass.
Not even the interred remind us that this Wednesday marks nine years since the murder of the "golden child"...

Not even those who ate from his hand. In the main square, opposite the Church, a hellish Jukebox spits "cocks" everywhere in the voice of Chenchito, which seems strange while children and women hurriedly pass the kiosk.
The narrow streets begin to darken and patrols of the State police increase, all agents with their faces covered. By their apparent ferocity, anyone would say that they could put an end to the underworld in a week, but they end their days getting drunks and extorting drivers without a license, nothing greater.
"They are dogs - says a man who stumbles upon the reporters - they stopped me days ago, as I came from my work and had no identification." "They pick up people and they carry them to the river, there they beat them. They take you if you're an ordinary person, but never detain a "heavy", never a pure malandrincillo [bad guy], and if they do, they soon release."
In three or four decades not much has changed in the city and those who want to form new municipalities should look at this in this mirror. Navolato has not ceased to be a town with five or six blocks of paved streets, ragged in their services, with a police force that had to be rescued by the state government, because they had no uniforms.
There is less violence that two or three years ago, when the dead were thing of every day and every night and where the murder of policemen reached frightening levels.
But it is an off town.
"There, in that living room, he began the war that went on to extend to all of Mexico". The man points his index finger towards the Alameda Palace Ballroom, located almost opposite the social security office.
It was the day of the students, in May 2003, and in the salon a Conference of youth of the Colegio de Bachilleres (Cobaes) celebrated,  led by Julio César Carrillo Leyva, son of Amado Carrillo Fuentes.
Sergio Castañeda Medina was there, a trigger-happy man then working for Jesús Ríos Félix, el Licenciado- detained in August 2005 by the army, a confidant of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, el Chapo.
He stopped his car opposite the Alameda Palace and boys started throwing cans of beer. A famous killer, el Guacho or el Doce, as he is known in the underworld, threatened to return.
And he did it with reinforcements, but the son of the Lord of the skies had already requested support.
A shootout took place which did not yield any dead, but left various. Starting from there, Julio César Carrillo began to operate with a lower profile and months later disappeared.
But the Valley had begun to ignite with that spark. Navolato was a space where years the supporters of Joaquín Guzmán and the Carrillo Fuentes had lived side by side, with the Carrillo Fuentes predominant. The Municipal police was manipulated by Rodolfo Carrillo, it was he who was in the Town Hall, whether the PAN or the PRI. He personally carried out meetings with agents and commanders where he gave them instructions. He had equal power in the Ministerial police, absolutely controlled by the Carrillo Fuentes clan.
A month after this confrontation, elements of the Ministerial police wanted to detain in Navolato Rogelio García Martínez, el Kelín, a gunman of Chapo Guzmán, but he faced of with them and he died. Months later his brother Guadalupe died in similar circumstances.
These facts and others of similar magnitude were related to the animosity between the gunmen of Guzmán and the Carrillos after the party at Alameda Palace, the same rivalry that to this day has not been settled. The killing continued on both sides and both sicarios and police fell.
On 15 June 2004 the Commander of the Ministerial police, assigned to Navolato, Sidarta Alfredo Walkinshaw Salazar, was killed, as he was in a meeting on the premises of the police headquarters.
But the climactic event was the assassination of Rodolfo Carrillo that occurred on September 11, 2004 at Cinepolis Plaza.
The afternoon of dogs
In September 2004, more than 15 sicarios armed with AK-47s and FAL rifles killed three people in the parking lot of the Cinepolis. One of those gunned down was Rodolfo Carrillo Fuentes. Another was Giovana Quevedo Gastélum, his wife. The third death was a worker from the parking lot where the shootout occurred.
In the firefight one of the bodyguards of the drug dealer was wounded, who turned out to be none other than the Commander of the Ministerial Police of State (PME), Pedro Pérez López, who the then Governor Juan S. Millán Lizárraga had authorized leave with pay, and a "good element" had publicly called him an "effective Commander", and a successful man who managed to fight organized crime.
Minutes after the confrontation an intense pursuit of the assassins was generated in the nearby towns of Bacurimi, Bellavista, Culiacancito, El Tamarindo, El Pinole and El Rosal Enfermo, where in clashes, five gunmen were killed and two more were wounded and transferred to a hospital as detainees.
The next day, three corpses of the alleged killers were found stacked in the bed of an armored truck in the town of Navolato. One of those executed was the former Commander of the State Ministerial police, Jesús Antonio Sánchez Verdugo. Victims, carrying magazine pouches and a fragmentation grenade, were tied hand and foot, with traces of torture and the coup de grace.
The investigation of the shooting was drawn by the then Attorney for specialized investigation into organized crime (SIEDO) of the PGR. To take charge of the investigation, a group of ten agents, between members of the Federal Public Ministry (MFP) and of the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI) arrived from Mexico City.
The response of the political and social sectors of Sinaloa was immediate. The leaders of the Confederation of agricultural associations in the State of Sinaloa (Caades), Association of farmers of the Culiacán River (AARC), Cámara Nacional de Comercio (Canaco), camera national of the industry of transformation (Canacintra), the Mexican Chamber of the industry of the construction (CMIC), political parties and even the Church, through the Bishop of Culiacán, demanded the then Governor Millán stop the violence in the State.
Farmers and businessmen called for dismantling, cleaning up and forming new police intelligence groups and said that if local authorities could not cope with this problem they should ask for the participation of the army.
The State Board of public safety (CESP) complained publicly that their recommendations and approaches to combat insecurity had not been taken into account by the institutions responsible and criticised that the "federal Government neither sees nor listening to Sinaloa in security".
In the midst of the scandal they resigned their positions of director and Deputy Director of the PME Jesus Antonio Aguilar Iñiguez and Martiniano Vizcarra Burgos, respectively. According to their statements, "not impede" investigations carried out by the PGR on the case.
But the federal prosecutor's Office already was investigating alleged links between these men with drug trafficking.
Shine marks the spot where Rodolfo was killed
Interviewed on the fact, the then Governor Millán Lizárraga said that "throughout the country is happening a rearrangement and clashes between drug traffickers, are hardened so it is without a doubt the crime of Carrillo sources will have its aftermath".
And he was right. The next week they killed 16 people. It was then that thousand 200 elements of the Mexican army and Navy arrived in the city with the Mission of strengthening the measures of crime prevention.
After the death of the golden child, revenge and violence was unleashed, such as the murder of Miguel Angel Beltran Lugo, Ceja Güera, originally from La Mojonera, in the municipality of Sinaloa, during a clash between inmates at the maximum security prison of La Palma; of the five suspected gunmen of the Sinaloa cartel, executed with AK-47 rifles in a residence of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas and the murder of Arturo Guzmán Loera, El Pollo, brother of El Chapo Guzmán, also inside the prison of La Palma.
Moreover, federal security elements were investigating links with drug trafficking from the former heads of the Sinaloa police. After raiding 18 residences of Jesus Antonio Aguilar Iñiguez, in Mazatlán and Escuinapa, Culiacán, and Navolato, the PGR confirmed in a newsletter the relationship of the police chief with the criminal organization dedicated to drug trafficking led the Carrillo Fuentes brothers.
Arrest warrants against Jesus Antonio Aguilar Iñiguez and Martiniano Vizcarra Burgos were issued, but they were already gone. Imitating the attitude of their leaders, 60 elements of the PME resigned and fled before the water reached their neck.
With the passing of nine years, the strength of the Carrillo Fuentes brothers involved in the drug trade seems decimated. The Sinaloa Cartel, with the support of the army and the Federal Police, took the Juárez plaza under the rule of Felipe Calderón.
Its leader, Vicente Carrillo, seems to have lost control of the operations of the cartel and among the names which the PGR has released as successors of the Viceroy, is Julio César Carrillo Leyva, son of the Lord of the skies.

  1. Chapo is a traidor hes losing friwnds very quickly, mayo and azul are distancing from his stupidness lil by lil...

  2. Mochomera and jc are stomping on chapo people bad, he should of never snitched or betrayed anyone

  3. Hhhmmmmm i thought chapo was losing the war? Wheres the bb chapo haters that just before this story posted that the Juarez cartel was as strong as the C.d.s ?

    Hahahahahaha haters el chapo is going strong and there not going to stop till the zeta-carrillo-menchos-beltran are all gone!!!!!

    1. Have even been to juarez cdj aint going nowhere

  4. How times have changed in drug trafficking world in Mexico. At the height of the Juarez Cartel's dominance, they owned the Army and the old Federal Directory of Security(DFS); Mayo Zambada and el Azul were associates of El Señor de los Cielos; Chapo was in prison in Puente Grande. The escape of Chapo and death Amado changed everything for the Juarez Cartel. The old associates changed alliances and now Chapo owns the Federal Police and Army if what is assumed by the public is true. Chapo Guzman now is head of the most powerful cartel in Mexico along with his associates Mayo and the Blue. That role once belonged to the Carrillo Fuentes brothers of the Juarez Cartel.

  5. chapo had to get gready and fuck everything u for a lot of people and all the major borders..

  6. Another cheerleading article dedicated to that puta sapo making his enemies seem weak

  7. Hahahah chapo rules

  8. capos come and capos go,but what happened to the money/fortunes they amassed,like Amao Carrillo Fuentes,said to have airplanes and a fortune of billions of "dallers".how come his family still has to put it on the line as narcs?I guess that is the naco part of being a narc,you can never shed the ranchito that shed you...

  9. Whoever wrote this article obviously hasnt stepped foot in juarez

  10. Todos valen madre. Entre gente corriente como va ver respeto y honor??

    1. entre el azul,el mayo y el chapo,hay respeto y honor,y lealtad.../amongst el mayo,el azul y el chapo,there is respect,honor, and loyalty,that's why they still there unlike the zetas,or the golfas that fell in the hands of the greediest bastards but don't last long,even z42 is suspected of setting up his brother to get to be the big bad boss...

  11. @Chivis

    Which is it one week, BB reports CDS has been defeated in Juarez, the next, CJ is sinking into oblivion...

    1. you are right this journalist who wrote the story obviously does not live in the El Paso juarez area. I would really like to know where he gets his false facts from. Juarez is still run by the vcfo.

  12. CDJ still going strong Don't worry be Happy Woooooooooooo

  13. Amado killed his boss,osiel killed his boss,and friends,there should be a lesson there for somebody,in the us maffia,somebody wacks the boss without authorization,will find his ass in trouble very soon,as history shows,in messico the same is happening,no loyalty begets no loyalty pinchis nacos!

  14. Why are people hating on Chapo for snitching? Didnt Amado gain his position by killing his boss? Betrayal is betrayal, and it must be done in this business to consolidate power. In many ways snitching can be a powerful tool to gain favor with the govt. El Chapo seems like a smart business man. He will fall one today, but not today. Today he reigns supreme over drug sales in mexico; and perhaps the world.

    1. Yes amado had pablo acosta killed he also seen the trouble that el chapo was starting so he turn in el chapo in Guatemala its a dog eat dog world pablo acosta was working with dea to get the colombians out of ojinaga one of those colombians was carlos lehder there all in it for the money they don't care who tell on who amado had that calderoni Gonzalez guy on the pay role and that's how he took over that guy calderoni killed pablo acosta arrested Miguel angel felix Gallardo and got exiled from Mexico with an astonishing 7mill in the bank till someone killed him in texas

  15. Chapo is a big panurch. Like all the other "big balls" sending people to die. Yet when its their turn to "morrir en la raya" they cower.

  16. I don't know who wrote this but sinaloa and juarez Cartel broke up because Chapo didn't want to pay taxes to the juarez cartel and also chapo did nt like jl running the show and bossing sinaloa around. Chapo has no control of cd juarez. Sinaloa runs the valley of juarez and he crosses his drugs through fabens. Juarez and el paso r still run by the vcfo. and that my friend is the truth!!!!

  17. Why was el ceja guera killed????? I don't see any relations with this story?

    1. Revenge over niño de oro being ordered murdered by Chapo,ceja huera was a relative of Chapo

    2. Orale. Also heard that somewhere.

  18. Written by the editorial staff of one of the most respected newspapers in Mexico and top rated in Sinaloa....RIODOCE

    I have the source at the post bottom

    If you want to learn more about the publication read my post titled "RioDoce the lone Mexican Source of Uncut Narco News"

    1. I do remember reading about el ceja guera getting killed over this. But heard it was osiel that did it

  19. Cartel de Juarez dosent run nada el chapo has control of that city and state since like forever hahahaha where have you guys been this is old news the Juarez Cartel is a joke compared to el cartel de sinaloa they just caught one of the Carrillos in Nayarit like 2 weeks ago cause it was too hot for him in Chihuahua just saying for the haters ahahahahahahah

  20. The US an other governments are the real cartels, they go to war for oil and kill thousands with drone strikes, then they try to act like respectable people with values, cartels should only focus on drugs and leave the kidnapping and extortion alone

  21. Stop critizing for the killings that are happening in mexico.Most of them are killed because they are in the mix already. The US is worse, like the 9/11 bombing all of that was an inside job. They just cover it up with lies. Illuminati is everywher.
