When Tony Montana's Elite Group Ordered The Assassination Of "El Pirata De Culiacan"

 "Ivan" for Borderland Beat 

Youtuber was murdered 5 years ago in Zapopan

At 5:20 a.m. today, members of the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) arrested Antonio Oseguera Cervantes, brother of Nemesio Osegura Cervantes, known as "El Mencho," leader of the Jalisco Cartel - New Generation (CJNG).

According to preliminary information, Antonio Oseguera, identified by authorities as "Tony Montana," is in custody after his arrest and is being transferred.

"Tony Montana" is at the top of the Jalisco Cartel - New Generation, from which he formed the Elite Group, which is the cartel's armed group. According to government reports, Antonio Oseguera initially put his security chief, Emilio Alexandro Pinedo, "El Sobrino," in charge.

In 2018, "El Sobrino" was arrested for the attack in May of that year against former prosecutor Luis Carlos Nájera.

What "El Pirata de Culiacán" said about "El Mencho". 

That day, the former Jalisco prosecutor was leaving a restaurant located on Chapultepec Avenue in the capital of the state of Jalisco. An armed group was waiting for him at the doors of the establishment and fired dozens of bullets to kill Nájera, who managed to escape.

When "El Sobrino" was arrested, it was known that there were some conversations with "Tony Montana", now arrested. Among the conversations, he talked about the attack on the former Jalisco prosecutor, but he also had photos of "bodies destroyed by gunshots and beatings. One of them was that of youtuber Juan Luis Laguna Rosales, El Pirata de Culiacán", according to an investigation by EL UNIVERSAL columnist Héctor de Mauleón.

On December 18, 2017, a commando of the CJNG Elite Group went to a bar in Zapopan, Jalisco, where "El Pirata de Culiacán" was drinking, whom they killed with 18 bullets. The images of the youtuber's corpse were found on "El Sobrino's" cell phone.

"El Pirata de Culiacán" was a youtuber who used to show himself drinking and with guns. On one occasion, he uploaded a video in which he was drunk and said: "Mencho can suck it".



  1. Juan Carlos González El 03 created Grupo Elite and Grupo Delta.

  2. I think Pirata was in a bar in Tlajomulco, not Zappopan

  3. Every single CJNG boy will have those photos on their phone. Tenuous link.

  4. No hubo narcobloquoeos ni nada de respuesta violenta de las 4 letras tal igual como cuando el 85 lo capturaron.. a de ver sido entrega planeada

  5. I really dont get what this kid was thinking. You can say CJNG killed him but when you get down to it CDS is more or less responsible. Heres a six pack, a 8 ball and a slice of some garbage ass pizza now say what we told you to say about mencho.... Stay in school kids stay in school

  6. That kid was to young to know any better .... He wasn't thinking he ain't gotta worry about it

  7. I agree, though im not sure a lack of car burning and blockades is necessarily a sign of waning power- it might be that they told their men not to, because they have other plans they don't want to jeopardise- a judge in their pocket who is afraid of unrest, for example. Sometimes that unrest smacks of desperation.
