EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) — A Mexican judge has convicted an alleged drug cartel lieutenant for the 2017 murder of a journalist from the Mexico City newspaper La Jornada, El Diario de Juarez reported.

Juan Carlos Moreno Ochoa, a.k.a. “El Larry,” faces up to 70 years in prison after being found guilty of being one of the murderers of Miroslava Breach in Chihuahua, Mexico. 
Moreno led the crew that shot the journalist allegedly on behalf of Salazar drug cartel leader Jose Crispin Salazar Zamorano, who was upset that she wrote news stories about his alleged ties to candidates for political office in Chihuahua state, El Diario reported.

Moreno will be sentenced on April 20. Salazar remains at large. The trial included testimony from 50 witnesses, including Moreno’s personal drivers, the newspaper said.


  1. maybe we will see justice for this murder, done by a Mexican but more likely from the jaliscas if they kill los salazares.

  2. They better get Salazar too, killing people for reporting the truth. I am glad this one was transparent.

    1. Good comment. Transparency of Salazar's doings shall not be overlooked. Foot soldier's are a dime a dozen to continue intimidation and killing again.

  3. If the sentence is hard will the judge and his family suffer?

  4. How Dámaso? US should send him back. Not like they charges against him. *snitch jaj

  5. And they tried to frame el 80 for this with cds tactics
