Kiki Camarena's kidnapper "El Güero" dies in Puente Grande

José Luis Gallardo Parra, alias "El Güero" has died inside the Federal Center for Social Readaptation (CEFERESO) number 2 "Occidente", located in the community of Puente Grande, Jalisco.

Unofficially it has been announced that the prisoner died a few hours ago due to a sudden cardiac arrhythmia. However, this has not yet been confirmed by the prison authorities.

Gallardo Parra was fighting a sentence of 86 years in prison in the prison popularly known as Puente Grande for the death of Enrique "Kiki" Camarena Salazar, an agent of the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). As well as that of SARH pilot Alfredo Zavala Avelar.

Kiki Camarena was kidnapped by "El Güero" on February 7, 1985 outside the Consulate of the United States of America in Guadalajara. And was brought before the founders of the Guadalajara Cartel who wished to interrogate him: Ernesto Rafael Fonseca Carrillo "Don Neto" , currently also a prisoner in Puente Grande, and Rafael Caro Quintero, who ordered his death two days later, remained in prison for 28 years, was released in 2013. He is currently accused of leading the Caborca ​​Cartel criminal group.

In 2014, the group of lawyers of "El Güero", identified as the mastermind of the kidnapping of Kiki Camarena, requested the Fifth Unitary Court of the Third Circuit the benefit of early release after being imprisoned for almost 27 years in the Puente Grande prison. However, this protection was denied and a magistrate confirmed the refusal.

Today, the death of José Luis Gallardo Parra was finally made known. He had been imprisoned since March 25, 1987, initially in the Guadalajara Preventive Prison and later in the Puente Grande prison, the place that was his last resting place since 1990 until this April 29, 2022.
