Enedina Arellano Felix, The Female Narco Who Doesn’t Appear In Books

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

The figure of Enedina returned this year through the third season of the series Narcos, by Netflix.

At the end of this year, journalist Anabel Hernandez published the book "Emma and the other ladies of the narco" in which she makes a profile of women who are a couple or consorts of some drug traffickers.

Except for Lucero Sánchez, known as "the chapodiputada", all of them didn’t operate or trafficked inside the cartels of their husbands.

But there are some yes. As Enedina Arellano Felix, who has been the financial brain of the Tijuana cartel and that to date, she has never been captured.

The figure of Enedina returned this year through the third season of the series "Narcos", from Netflix. In the series it is implemented that the head of the Cartel of the Arellano Felix trafficked drugs in a society of friends with a female character, who alluded to Sandra Ávila Beltrán.

In reality, the so-called "Queen of the Pacific" never trafficked drugs with Enedina, but she was the one who inspired the series of "The Queen of the South".

Enedina was always next to her brothers, Benjamin and Ramón.

In another series, that of "the Lord of the Skies", the character of Fernanda Castillo, "Monica Robles", is inspired by Enedina Arellano Felix, but she is abysmally different from the real head of drug trafficking.

In the series, Monica Robles "maintains a romance with" Aurelio Casillas ", which supposedly represents Amado Carrillo, which didn’t happen either.

Enedina Arellano Felix always maintained a low profile, unlike her brothers, known for their violence and eccentricities.

She studied accounting at a private university of Guadalajara and with that knowledge, she became the financial brain of the cartel, although she has never appeared in the "Search" engines of the United States. 

In "Narcos 3" it is said that Enedina married a lawyer from Tijuana, the truth is that her son, Fernando Sánchez Arellano, "El Engineer", continued with the violent legacy of his uncles, Ramón and Benjamin .

"El Ingeniero" in a cartel "is sought"

"El Ingeniero" was arrested in Tijuana in 2015 and was considered as the last of Arellano Felix, but Enedina is still free.

  1. I heard Enida is protected by a "highly trained " group of "Tier 1 Operators " from Lince Elite "Special Forces" .
    They were trained by a retired "colonel " from "Delta Force CAG"

    1. Sounds like something 006 would say ...You have zero originality.

    2. You are a real genuis! Albert Einstein has nothing on you!
      See this symbol (") its called a quotation mark .I am quoting El Señor Sicario 006

    3. All these guys are idiots. As if they knew the whereabouts of these important narcos

    4. Shut up and eat your government cheese racist loser

  2. So does she lead the cartel? I keep reading that she does.

    1. Its said that she doesn't but more often than not its seuggested that she has pretty much been the brains the enitire time even equal or above Benjamin but always ruled from the shadows or had one of the brothers as a front man. I dont doubt it, according to some AFO ppl shes very much in charge only she rules indirectly always placing someone else as the face amd that's why shes alwayscmanaged to keep heat off of her

  3. “El ingeniero” le queda grande
    Es un albañil
