"El Tala" operated in Guerrero and the State of Mexico (Edomex) as one of the main leaders for La Familia Michoacana
During the afternoon Thursday, the capture of Juan José Estrada Villamil, "El Tala", the alleged leader of La Familia Michoacana in the State of Mexico (Edomex) and Guerrero, was reported.

The joint operation for his arrest was carried out in Puebla by the Secretariat of the Armed Navy of Mexico (Semar) and the National Anti-kidnapping Commission (Conase). Estrada Villamil had several arrest warrants against him for qualified homicide against state police officers, and he was linked to the attack against Mario Figueroa Mundo, Morena's candidate for the municipal presidency of Taxco, Guerrero, in December 2020.

Despite the various gunshots and injuries, Figueroa Mundo managed to survive the attack and announced that he will continue in the electoral fight to be held on June 6. "El Tala" is considered one of the main leaders of La Familia Michoacana operating in Taxco, Tetipac, Pilcaya and the southern part of the State of Mexico, where it had protection from state authorities.

During the attack in Guerrero, which is attributed to "El Tala," Efrén Valois Morales, Morena's candidate for mayor of Pilcaya, as well as a founder and leader of the party founded by Andrés Manuel López Obrador in the municipality he aspired to, died. The party's State Committee demanded security for its militants from the state governor, Héctor Astillo Flores, and condemned the attacks against his comrades. Marcial Rodríguez Saldaña, secretary of Morena in Guerrero, demanded an electoral process in peace, after a press conference Tuesday, December 22.

According to local press reports, Valois Morales was assassinated around 6:00 p.m. on December 21, at the exit of Pilcaya, on the road to San Alejo, municipality of Ixtapan de la Sal, State of Mexico.

Mario Figueroa Mundo

Mario Figueroa Mundo, a cattle rancher, was shot at around 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the San Miguel de Taxco neighborhood, south of the city hall. He was allegedly hit in the chest. A video circulating on social networks shows how he was helped by medical services.

One of the last detained leaders was Alejandro Sánchez Santamaría, alias "El Negro" or "Mamado" related to at least 15 investigation files for homicides and extortion, who was captured during an operation led by authorities of the State of Mexico in the municipality of Toluca. The representative of the Michoacan narcos in Edomex, he was based in Toluca.

He is credited with the murder of 19 people, as well as extortion in bars and restaurants. His arrest was completed on Monday, April 12, after an order for the murder of a subject, which occurred on May 21 of last year, in the municipality of Lerma.

  1. This goes to show that when the government wants to arrest the bosses they can, they just always wait for a reason to

  2. Mario figueroa mundo is wearing a partido verde ecologista t-shirt, if he is now with MORENA, he may have got shot for being a pinche chapulin, ecologistas have been anything but ecologistas, the only green they care about is green cold hard cash in their name in some foreign bank account

  3. The MF dont play games

  4. Let me see why go after LFM, when it is the cjng (Baby Killer Cartel), that is running rampant, what about the 12 policemen that were ambushed in Michoacan, by the BKiller Cartel.
    Seems some Cartels have green light to do what ever they want.

  5. Is LFM made up of different cells/factions?
    I don’t see a true leader

    1. Yea it is basically they took over what was left of the templarios that didn’t flip.. they have cells all over sur mexico backing from China and cjng got backing from usa

  6. The corruption in Mexico is so rampant and uncontrollable. Poor citizens who are subject to the enforcement policies of extortionists and faceless figures to enrich.
    Anyone can be caught, killed or apprehended by Mexican authorities if interests are well supportive.

  7. Fucking secret management aka comprehensive rent at 9:08 go suck Menchos 5 foot cock already you bum. You literally post the same shit everywhere lmao

    LFM has been getting hit hard lately. I'm guessing it's because of the ambush they did on the police but even before that they were catching losses left and right I wonder what is happening politically for this to be happening

  8. Good news for CJNG, they are at WAR on those parts
