Lalo Mantecas Caught on Video At El Komander Concert in Michoacán

"HEARST" for Borderland Beat

Video which purportedly depicts Medardo Hernández Vera, alias “Lalo Mantecas” or “El 100” (El Cien) attending a music concert has emerged online in Benito Juárez municipality of Michoacán. 

El Komander's official 2021 tour poster which lists the November 20, 2021 concert in Paricuaro, Michoacán that Lalo was allegedly seen attending. 

In the video Lalo Mantecas was seen singing, dancing and drinking alongside thousands of other concert attendees. Lalo was allegedly guarded by dozens of hitmen at the musical event. The event hosted the famous narcocorrido singer “El Komander” along with “El Cejas y su Banda Fuego” (Cejas and his hot band).

The concert took place on November 20, 2021 in the town of Parícuaro, located in the municipality of Benito Juárez in the state of Michoacán. Alleged video of Lalo did not emerge until nearly three days later, on November 23, 2021.

In the video above, Lalo Mantecas can be seen standing very close to El Komander, on the right side of the footage, wearing a white cowboy hat.

Meanwhile, one of the people who was to the left of El Komander can be seen taking the microphone for a few moments to say: "Thank you, godfather Cien." Cien is the Spanish word for 100, referring to one of the common aliases of Medardo Hernández Vera, “El 100”.

There were later claims made that Lalo Mantecas had his men discover the identity of the videographer who captured his image. Then, Lalo had men who worked under him kidnap, torture and kill the videographer.

However, it is worth noting that this information about the murder of the videographer, as well as the video itself, comes only from a social media user. Note, both La Verdad and Vanguardia do not allege the videographer died, they simply cover the allegations of what occurred.

Cartel Landscape of the Area 

The concert took place in the town of Parícuaro, located in the municipality of Benito Juárez. The municipality of Benito Juárez lies just south of Zitácuaro and is adjacent to the Michoacán/State of Mexico border. 

Despite the name “La Familia Michoacana”, the states in which LFM hold the most power currently actually lie outside of Michoacán. The State of Mexico is one of the states in which LFM holds significant cartel influence. 

Medardo Hernández Vera, “Lalo Mantecas” is a regional boss for the group La Familia Michoacana. He sometimes uses the fake names of Eduardo Hernández Uribe and / or Antonio Sánchez. His group operates in a region that is a part of the border area of Michoacán, the State of Mexico and San Luis Potosi. 

Lalo Mantecas is believed to report to Johnny Hurtado Olascoaga, alias “El Pez”, and his brother, Jose Alfredo Hurtado Olascoaga, alias “La Fresa”, the leaders of one the of the major LFM groups.

Just recently, on November 11, 2021, a narcomanta (narco message sign) threatening local cartel leaders from a LFM leader named “El F1” was left in the municipality of Tanquián in the state of San Luis Potosi.

“El F1” identified himself as belonging to the “mob of Señor 100”, referring to Lalo’s other alias “El 100”; making clear that he reports to Lalo Mantecas’ LFM subgroup. For further details on this San Luis Potosi narcomanta, please see this previous story.

  1. This was like week and a half ago they already killed the dude who recorded the video

    1. As always Mero, your comment is already addressed within my story.

      The "guy who recorded the video" allegedly being killed is covered. One simply has to read the text.

    2. I've noticed that a lot of the people who comment, make statements based on titles, rather than reading the whole article.

    3. I've noticed a lot of people here can't spell, use correct grammar,or write proper sentences. Why would you believe they can read at all? Haa

    4. Suck a pene toppz hows my grAmar

    5. Mero Pedo
      Picking on the staff again, I think you are prone, to being a trouble maker.

    6. @chavalan How's your Grammer? It's illiterate, but I consider the source. Go floss your tooth.

    7. I never disrespect or mess with BB reporters,only people I scold are my mugroso Mijos that are on here attacking my comments and by the way I never said I was paying child support just giving you mijo some guarache money for the holidays…Ps. Your mamas favorite milk 🥛 man

  2. I am no expert on cartel courtesy but I sure as hell would not be filming a known member for any reason on Earth!

    1. Lots of people had their phones out filming so it was blatantly obvious.

      The conclusion must be the criminals did not care and why should they? As long as they pay their bribes and keep the rivals (and the law enforcement branch which they are paying) at bay everything is kosher.

    2. I wish anonymous posts were banned on here. Every stupid ass comment made here is done anonymously

    3. @325 You may well be 100% correct but WHY take the chance? Personally I would not have the nerve to do anything in MX but hide under my bed.

    4. Toppazz you also are known to make stupid comments. Don't read the comments then, furthermore the one you recently stated, that BB website is giving you PTSD, well don't be on it. Seseme street website is better.

    5. Good evening BB, hope everyone is well.

      @739. I don't think that anyone would be a sissy for deciding not to put themselves in a position of danger. To some extent i look at it as possibly being smart ....

      But to each their own.

    6. I AM a sissy but that will never stop me from making stupid comments or ranting about like I know what time it is . But I wonder how cool must it be to order someone dead because they unknowingly filmed the worlds biggest dickhead on the planet .
      Which in my opinion qualifies you for that title if you were todo such a thing . Now back to being a sissy . srsly

  3. This bunch of mass-murdering hill-billies and their groupies just make me cringe :-(

  4. So did el fresa and pez break up up with cjng?

  5. Michoacan mafia is strong
    I actually thought MENCHO was going to take over michoacan this year..
    Boy was i wrong. the familia michoacana, Viagras, Carteles Unidos and ther autodefenzas are still strong unfortunately

    1. A state in my opinion that has roots so deep & rooted to assume another name.
