The Life and Death of Cheyo Antrax, Mayo's Nephew & The Ban on Sharing Images of His Murder

"HEARST" and "Enojon" for Borderland Beat

Sinaloa Cartel figure Eliseo Imperial Castro, alias “Cheyo Antrax”, was killed in Culiacan - in a city which the cartel group entirely controls, which means someone from the Sinaloa Cartel had Cheyo Antrax killed. 


So was it a Sinaloa Cartel faction which works under rivals like Guano or Chapitos? Or was Cheyo’s own Mayo faction involved in his murder? 


And why is the Sinaloa Cartel trying to prevent pictures of Cheyo’s murder from being shared online?


Warning: Some graphic images below this point.



Overview of Cheyo’s Criminal History


Before we jump into the details of Cheyo Antrax's murder, let's review who he is, what he's done and what role he's played in the Sinaloa Cartel.


In the year 1984, Eliseo Imperial Lopez, a Sinaloa Cartel narco who went by the criminal aliases “Cheyo Imperial”, had a son with his wife. Their son was born on January 17, 1984 and they named him Eliseo Jr.  


That same year Eliseo Imperial Lopez’s sister, Margarita had an affair with the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, Ismael Zambada Garcia “El Mayo”. Their affair produced a son, who they named Ismael Jr., who was born that same year. 


Because Eliseo and Margarita Imperial Lopez were both living in Culiacan and they had sons so close in age, the two boys grew up together - often attending each other’s birthday parties and other family events.


One of El Cheyo’s narcocorridos, titled Soldado Imperial, describes how he grew up with Mayito Gordo with the lyrics “We lived, we grew up, together, one and two.”



Their two boys would grow up to be Sinaloa Cartel narcos in their own right. 



Eliseo’s son Eliseo Imperial Castro became known by the criminal alias “Cheyo Antrax”. Margarita’s son Ismael Zambada Imperial become known by the alias “Mayito Gordo”. 



In 2008, following the separation of CDS and the Beltrán Leyva Organization, a new CDS armed wing was founded by Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, alias "El Chino Ántrax” and René Velázquez, alias “Sargento Phoenix” that would go on to be called “Los Antrax” (although some debate to this day that El 20 and El Fello were more of the creators of the group). 



El Cheyo was allegedly a part of the initial group of members. There are many photos of El Cheyo posing with other Antrax members.


It's worth noting that Cheyo Antrax is known to have a sister named Eli Imperial Castro, who he is frequently photographed with. She seemed to have frequented the same party scene as los Antrax. 




Eli and Mayito Gordo are cousins (in a way, except it seems Mayo never married Margarita) and they appear to be quite close.



Cheyo's sister Eli would go on to marry los Antrax member Francisco Arce Rubio, alias “Pancho Arce”. This means Pancho Arce was, at one point, Cheyo’s brother-in-law.



Eli and Pancho reportedly had three children together, two sons and a daughter. But Pancho Arce would be killed in November 2011, leaving Eli a widow.



Cheyo Antrax had his own set of relationships. He reportedly had a son in an early relationship, possibly with someone known as “Meche Felix”.



He then met and married Mili (sometimes spelled Milli) Felix and he reportedly has three children with her. 



Mili has a daughter named Ashley from a previous relationship.

Ashley (who uses the alias “Ashley Mili” on social media) frequently posts on Tiktok videos showing off expensive items like Jimmy Choo shoes and her trip to Taylor Swift’s Eras tour - all presumably bought with her step-father’s drug money.



In 2013, Chino Antrax was arrested in Amsterdam after flying to the European city to vacation - not realizing that Interpol was not going to be fooled by his fake passport. Chino’s arrest marked the beginning of the decline of los Antrax, who dissolved over the following years. 


During this period, it seems that Cheyo Antrax shifted from working primarily as a member of los Antrax to instead working as Mayito Gordo’s head of security. This role is referenced in narcocorrido Soldado Imperial, with the lyrics “Mayito - the support, Cheyo - the protection.” 



In July 2014, Cheyo Ántrax was officially identified as a wanted fugitive for drug trafficking offenses by the US government in 14-CR-2127-DMS.



The Sinaloa-based newspaper Ríodoce wrote that Cheyo Ántrax was the right-hand man of Ismael Zambada Imperial, “El Mayito Gordo”. They go on to state that, according to their sources, when Mayito Gordo was arrested, El Cheyo was with him and acting as his bodyguard at the time. 


The arrest took place on November 12, 2014, when a group of marines descended onto one of Gordo’s properties, a house in La Estancia de los Burgos, Sinaloa, where he was staying at the time. Ríodoce says that El Cheyo “managed to escape at the last minute,” much like El Changuito Ántrax, who was also present at the house that day.



Mayito Gordo remained in prison for years after the arrest and Gordo was eventually extradited to the US, which means Cheyo Antrax was suddenly out of a job. It’s worth noting that some people call Cheyo Antrax as “El Lobo Guardián” or “The Wolf Guardian” out of reverence for Cheyo’s role as Mayito’s head of security. 


But one of the chief jobs of security is to prevent your charge from being arrested and, well, Mayito was arrested on Cheyo’s watch, while they were together on a remote ranch, so Cheyo being some wolf-like guardian doesn’t really track.



Cheyo had to again shift his role in the Sinaloa Cartel and it seems like he began trying to manage a drug trafficking route which crossed shipments through the border city of Tijuana in to the US city of San Diego.


Just two years later, in September 2016, the US designated Cheyo under the Kingpin Act which economically sanctioned him and his associates, forbidden US citizens from doing business with him or his known associates.



The US press release alleges that El Atlante and El Hannibal transported drug shipments (specifically citing methamphetamine) through Tijuana on behalf of Cheyo.


El Atlante and his brother would go on to switch sides and begin working with a CAF/CJNG group in Tijuana, abandoning his work with Cheyo Antrax and the Sinaloa Cartel. 


Ever since the US sanctions in 2016, Cheyo kinda fell off the map. His influence and power seemed to wane, or at the very least, he seemed to switch to a very behind the scenes role in the cartel. 



Compared to the stir that other supposedly “low key” Mayo associates like Chavo Felix and Lupe Tapia still regularly make, Cheyo Antrax effectively disappeared. 


From 2016 to 2024, there was almost to news about Cheyo at all. The most notable incident during the last whole time came in January 2021 when Cheyo was allegedly spotted in a video of a narco party, listening to a live music act



The latest news is that Cheyo Antrax’s father, Eliseo Imperial López, reportedly died in September 2023 in Sinaloa. How he died is unclear but so far there hasn’t been any claims that he was murdered.



Plenty of big wreaths from important cartel figures were spotted at his funeral ceremony, including one from Ismael Zambada (Junior or Senior is unclear), which signals that Eliseo Imperial López was still considered to be in good standing with the Sinaloa Cartel at the time of his death.








The Details of Cheyo’s Murder


On Thursday, May 30, 2024, a lifted white Chevrolet Colorado 4x4 pickup truck was found on the side of Mexican Federal Highway 15 at a location just south of the city of Culiacan, in the state of Sinaloa. The pickup truck reportedly had Sinaloa license plates, according to Milenio.



The spot on the highway where the vehicle was located is near a junk yard which is filled with old vehicles, near Colonia Antorchista and the El Ranchito. 


The front windshield of the pickup truck had more than a dozen bullet holes in it. The vehicle had obviously been shot at.




Most news sources (like Proceso and Notiver) are currently reporting that the attack on the vehicle occurred at approximately noon and a driver on the highway called the emergency line at about 2:20 pm - more than two hours after it happened.



However, there are some sources (like Dallas News) which claim the attack itself occurred at 2:20pm.


Dallas News reported, without citing the source of their information, that Cheyo Antrax “was ambushed by at least four individuals who were aboard a truck and a motorcycle and who shot him at least 15 times.”



SDP Noticias expands on this and writes that “the nephew of Mayo Zambada was traveling in a Chevrolet Colorado truck, when he was ambushed by hitmen who were traveling in 2 vehicles. Early reports indicate that the attackers forced Imperial Eliseo to pull over to the side of the freeway and stop driving. After that, the hitmen got out of their vehicles and began to shoot at the truck.”

The level of detail in the SDP and Dallas News articles, with the number of attackers identified and Cheyo being forced to pull over, may suggest there was either an eye witness to the incident or law enforcement got their hands on some high resolution surveillance video.


Video Source: MegaNoticias Culiacan


Inside the white pickup truck they found the dead body of a man tentatively identified as Cheyo Antrax. That identity has yet to be confirmed by the DEA. He was in the driver’s seat, crumpled onto himself, with his left leg splayed to the right. 



Parts of his face were covered with blood. There were multiple puncture marks on his face which are presumably bullet holes from being shot. 


He was wearing a black t-shirt, hoodie, and blue jeans. Based on Cheyo’s birth date according to US federal intelligence, Cheyo was 40 years old at the time of his death.


There is visible blood splatter on the passenger’s side seat but very little splatter is visible on the driver’s side seat. 



40 shell casings were reportedly found near the pickup truck, according to SDP Noticias.

Meganoticias reports that firearms and ammo was found inside Cheyo’s truck. Where inside his vehicle is not reported. 


Cheyo Antrax was undoubtedly murdered by somebody. 


Usually after an important cartel member or the family of a cartel member is killed, hitmen will take to the streets and commandeer vehicles from civilians on the road to burn them as roadblocks. Or hitmen may perform drive-by shootings at bars known to sell drugs supplied by their rivals.



Threats against their rivals will usually go out across radio channels and somebody with a phone will inevitably record some of what is said. Threatening banners may even be erected in the days after a murder of someone like this. 


Strangely, none of that has happened in Culiacan since Cheyo’s death. There is no visible sign of impending retribution. Something about Cheyo’s murder is being handled by Mayo-leadership differently than you'd expect. 





Misinformation in News Coverage of Cheyo's Death

Misinformation is running rampant in the news coverage of Cheyo’s death. 


For example, El Financiero refers to Cheyo Antrax as “the founder” of los Antrax. There are four major cartel figures who people credit with founding los Antrax: 


Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, alias "El Chino Ántrax” 

 

René Velázquez Valenzuela, alias “Sargento Phoenix”  

 

Jesús Peña González, alias “El 20”  

 

Alfredo Vizcarra Vega, alias “El Fello”



People will often debate which of these four men deserve the title of founder. But you’ll notice that  Cheyo Antrax is not in that list. 


Another example, the outlet Olegario Quintero Informa claimed that Cheyo “was the last survivor” of los Antrax. 


This is patently false. There are a handful of Antrax members still alive and one (a man named Rafael Guadalupe Felix Nuñez, who goes by the alias “Changuito Antrax”) was sanctioned by the US government in a high-profile announcement less than a year ago


And finally, some news outlets, like SDP Noticias, claim there was a $5 million dollar reward offered by the US for Cheyo. This is incorrect. This error likely derives from the 2016 sanctions on Cheyo which mention the $5 million dollar reward for Cheyo’s boss Gordo. 





Sinaloa Cartel Tries to Ban Images of Cheyo’s Murder

The Sinaloa Cartel has tried to put an embargo on sharing the images of Cheyo’s dead body. Multiple Sinaloa Cartel-sympathetic social media accounts have put out warnings, saying that sharing those images is strictly forbidden. 



Even US-based news outlets like Dallas News took note and reported on the Sinaloa Cartel’s attempt to ban the images from being shared.


An audio clip (embedded below) in which a cartel figure says that anyone online sharing the images will be found and punished was published online.



The audio says as follows, as translated by Enojon: 


“People, people whoever has pictures of the [body] delete them there’s [trouble], [trouble]…or you’ll get beat. 


Delete the photos, delete the photos. 


They’ll have to kill them all [since] there’s a lot [of them]. 


…Don’t upload it man, don’t upload it to your profile, don’t let people know of one’s profile because I’m hearing on another line that…they’ll get hit [with a paddle] at least 15 times…I know it’s a-lot, it’s a-lot but don’t post it on Facebook or anything…”


Thankfully, there are a decent-number of cartel news accounts like @Crux1469, El Blog de los Guachos, and @Libertador_Mx who don’t cower in the face of such threats and they posted the images online.


And we at Borderland Beat want to do our small part in trying to amplify and highlight these images for all to see - because they should be seen.


(And if the Sinaloa Cartel really tries to push this image embargo, they’ll quickly find out just what the Streisand effect really means... The internet does not take kindly to powerful entities trying to bury dirt on themselves.)



What’s even more strange is that an image embargo has seemingly never been imposed after the death of other cartel members - even the members who were arguably more important and more powerful than Cheyo.



Think, for example, about the murder of El 22, the leader of a Sinaloa Cartel group known as los Numeros, which happened in a Culiacan hospital last year. (Read the full story here.)



Images of El 22’s bullet ridden body lying in a blood of his own blood were widely circulated online and yet no Sinaloa Cartel account tried to prevent those images from being shared.


And it's worth noting that El 22 was supposedly killed entirely due to a mistake, so his death was not some punishment that was meant to be shared. It was an accident but the Sinaloa Cartel felt no need to ban the sharing of those images. 



One could argue that the embargo on the images is more due to Cheyo Antrax being (in a way) Mayo’s nephew and that there is some special reverence given to close family of high-level cartel leaders. 


However, think about Ovidio and Joaquin Guzman’s cousin Luis Alberto Beltran Lopez. He was a full blooded cousin of two of the four Chapito brothers. 



When he died in a freak accident while he was motorbiking through the wilderness last August, there were photos of his swollen corpse posted all over the internet. (Read the full story here.)



Despite Luis Alberto not being found until he was "in an advanced state of decomposition”, there was no embargo on sharing images of his dead body. 


So what is it about these photos of Cheyo Antrax that is different? Why don’t they want them shared? 





Oddities in the Crime Scene

There is one suspicious looking wound visible on Cheyo Antrax in the “banned” photos. On his left forehead, in the space between his eyebrow and his ear, there is a visible puncture wound, presumably a bullet hole, but there doesn’t appear to be blood coming from the wound. 


This is odd. 


Now, it's possible for gunshot wounds to cause internal bleeding with little external bleeding, but that is very rarely seen with facial injuries because of the dense vascularity of the head.



In some cases, if a major blood vessel in the head is not hit by the bullet, there may be less external bleeding. However seeing no external bleeding at all, like what we see with Cheyo's wound, is odd. 


One explanation (but not the only explanation) for the lack of external bleeding is that the wound was inflicted after Cheyo's heart had already stopped beating.



Just how long after being shot did Cheyo's heart stop? That depends on a variety of factors. You'd have to determine where the other bullets struck and the damage they did to organs like his brain to get an answer for that.


Another oddity is the location and direction of the blood spatter. Very little seems to be on the driver's side seat behind Cheyo. Most of it seems to be on the passenger's side seat, coming from the direction of the driver's side.



Keep in mind that there are no visible bullet holes in the driver’s side window. So, according to the news outlet's version of events, we're supposed to believe all the gunshots came from the front of the vehicle, directly at Cheyo, who was sitting in the driver's seat. It's strange. 



The blood splatter better aligns with a scenario where the shooters approached the pickup truck and opened the driver's side door and then they shot at Cheyo, who was inside the vehicle.

Look, it's ultimately impossible to determine the reason why that wound shows no sign of external bleeding or why the blood spatter is where it is based on photos.


The only way to reliably determine that is through a medical autopsy and forensic blood spatter analysis, something that the Sinaloa state government is likely already “doing”. 


But let's not kid ourselves, the forensic experts in Sinaloa will report that Cheyo’s injuries match whatever the Sinaloa Cartel says happened. 


The autopsy and forensic “findings” will corroborate the cartel’s desired narrative. 


This is just how things in Sinaloa work. This is how things in Jalisco would work if something like this were to happen to a CJNG figure. 


In the uncontested stronghold states of a cartel group, there is top-down influence which can be wielded by cartel groups and the Sinaloa Cartel seems to think the handling of this murder warrants the use of that influence.


So we’re stuck. The only trustworthy evidence we’ll ever get is these two photos. Their importance is only further bolstered by the knowledge that some people really don’t want these images being out there. 


Take a moment to look at the photos further and share them online anonymously in any way you can.

  1. Lots of theories over this hit… some say Chapitos, others say Mayito Flaco ordered it over a drug lab that was busted last week, other saying Minesteriales did it, Luis Chaparro saying he asked around and people told him Guanito….

    Who knows.

    4. Hearst is 100% correct with his analysis of the murder. This guy was murdered from his side of the driver's side door. Since the driver's door and window doesn't have bullet holes that means that he willingly opened the door. Which means that he trusted the person on the other side. If he trusted this person it means that this other person worked on his side of the cartel. He wouldn't do this for a Chapitos person. The bullet hole in his head without external bleeding was the "tiro de gracia". Last shot at close range to make sure he is dead. The reason his left leg is bent that way is because he tried to jump over seats but couldn't. All this evidence now implies an inside job ordered by Mayo himself. The reason for image sanctions is that Mayo wants the family members to think it was somebody else. After the murder and after this guy was dead the shooters went to the front of the viechle and shot more rounds to make it seem like a drive by shooting. Nuff Said!!!

    9. If the shots came from the driver side door, where are the holes in the passenger door? If you take a look at the windshield, the front driver side, quarter panel and the hood and the grill they all have multiple impact points from small and heavy weapons fire. These bullets would have gone completely through his body and I suspect, the holes are in the seat underneath his body. If you look at the top right drivers seat, it has what appears to be a bullet impact point yes, I think the scene was most definitely saved, and this scene appears to be pushing the Sinaloa cartels narrative. Does anyone else think the driver side door shows damage from what appears to be trying to pry and shove it open?

      Delete
    10. @10:20
      You bring up a good point about there needing to be bullet impacts on the passenger side door for theory about being shot through an open driver's side door to be correct.

      I haven't been able to find an image showing the passenger's side of the vehicle. Just the little bit we can see in the interior photos.

      I hope you guys feel free to discuss any theories you have about where Cheyo was and how he was shot. There's a lot you guys pick up on that I miss.

      Delete
    11. @ 10.20. It's pointless trying to work out how he was shot based on these photos. It's Culiacan, where the killers often make the police and ambulance crews wait until they've done what they need to do before they can even approach. Just because the body is curled up where it is in this photo doesn't mean that was where he was when he died. The killers could have moved him for so many reasons, even if it was just to search him. Same with police and ambulance crews.

      Delete
    12. 10:20am You are wrong here my friend and Hearst is still 100% correct. Let me tell you why. The reason that there might not be bullet holes on the passenger side door is because the shooter used small arms fire. He used a hand gun. When shot in the head with a hand gun most of the time the bullet won't go through your head. The bullet stays logged in your skull. Your head skeleton is very thick. Therefore you will not have bullet holes on passenger side door. You mention a bullet hole on his seat. You are correct. It is there but do you notice that the seat where the hole is located does not have blood? When was this bullet hole made? It was made after victim was already dead. The blood spatter evidence does not lie. If shot from the front the blood spatter would be behind him and not on passenger side seat. Also notice the trajectory of the blood. Somebody was standing higher than him shooting downward. The bullet holes in his face are also hand gun wounds. If those shots would've been high caliber shots then his whole head would've been blown off. When cartel members go shoot up a truck will they use hand guns to shoot or high caliber weapons? Your telling me that hand guns where used here from long distance shot towards front of truck and they where very lucky to strike this guy directly in the face and then on the side of the head? No way. What happened here is that somebody from the cartel followed this guy with a cop in a police viechle alongside. The cop working for cartel. The cop pulled over the victim and ordered him to step out of truck. The driver's side door was opened and cop fired in his face. Last shot was on side of head. Cop drove off in his car then cartel members shot the front of victims truck to make it look different. Me and Hearst should do private invastigation work. We are good. It's that simple. Nuff Said!!!

    13. I’m sorry and with all due respect enough, I disagree. Most small caliber handguns will go through the head with the exception of a 22 Cal and a 25 Cal. And are you telling me these guys hit their mark every time? There are multiple bullet impacts on his head, his ear below his nose, etc. it almost looks like somebody wiped blood office space to some degree.
      Perhaps there’s no blood in the hole on the seat because they missed. And you’re right, the blood splatter evidence does not lie, but if he was ducking down to get behind the dash as would be instinct, even though it’s not gonna stop the bullets that could impact the blood splatter evidence, and when your body is hit by that many 50 Cal or 7.6 to Cal bullets. It’s gonna move it all over the cab of the vehicle and that could affect the blood spatter evidence. If he was shot in the truck, and that’s a big year, though he was clearly shot in the truck was it after he was deceased. And there is no blood splatter on the passenger seat. It’s simply blood where he bled out as he lay in that position. And if people were standing outside the truck and he was driving, yes they would be shooting down at him and he would be retreating to the floor. The boards to the face are not necessarily handgun wounds even a very large caliber weapon has a tiny entry point and a very large exit point, such as in the top of his head, which has a very large part missing. They clearly used large caliber weapons in this assault and if you’re actually do some reading, you’ll realize that large caliber weapons can have extremely small entrance points and again very large exit points. It appears There is damage to the driver side of the truck suggesting he may have been forced off the road and pulled over because they had him boxed in because the most reliable report after a simulating all that Hearst has accumulated. BTW, Hearst is a professional journalist, and so am I or at least was, I’m retired now. And you could use a little work on your humility. They is simply no way you could know those facts unless you were there or spoke to someone who was there and that hasn’t happened. If Hearst had a source who was willing to commit to that, or she saw the incident, she could report it there has to be attribution and corroboration. What you’re talking about is not journalism.
      Two additional points of note on the gun shot that you pointed out to his head, Hearst does it appear that there are powder burns? Also, there is blood in the interior of the wound that looks dried. It does not add up. And I am wondering due to the violence of the attack, and the head wound that you pointed out it just seems a little personal. Hearst do you think MZ was behind this? Does it have his fingerprints on it? It just doesn’t seem to be his style to kill a nephew… Unless he really fucked up. I don’t say it enough but thanks to you all for the great work and recording you do on a daily basis, your service to humanity is noted even yours Nuff.

    14. 10:09am You make very valid points here. Can we all just agree that we will never really know what happened here due to government agencies working with the cartel? Not only the police but also the ambulance and medical crews. Many things could've happened before and after his death. My mind just ran wild yesterday after I had too many whiskeys with my wife Buffy. Now you ask a very valid question. Was it MZ who ordered this? I would have to say "yes". If it was faction of CDS cartel there would've been some kind of revenge already. All of these guys know where everybody is pretty much located including their families. The faction responsible for the hit would've also claimed some kind of victory through banners. This guy did something that really pissed of Mayo. We won't know until a cartel guy gets arrested and then extradited to the U.S and begins to spill his guts like El Nini and others do. This might take a year or two. The last thing I want to say is what exactly makes a person "a journalist". I ask this because I consider myself an independent journalist. A very good one. Nuff Said!!!

      Antrax were all glorified bodyguards and did little fighting in the war compared to their fame, they mainly partied and patrolled Culiacan and all of them got executed in Culiacan, their own turf.

    2. @7.41. Cheyo was "Humble"? He was a vain bully, for a group who gloried in their inherited power, boasted about it, used police to do their dirty work because their family wanted to protect them, and the truly humble- powerless men and women in Culiacan squeezed from 3 sides- they were forced to pay the price.

  9. I heard a theory that the government killed him to sow distrust and discord between Mayos y Chapos. As I previously wrote, there might be video of how Cheyo was killed from camera/s in the road. Maybe a paid hit by Chapos through government forces? New incoming government voiding previous "agreements"? Further dividing them to thin them out and being easier to capture or kill what survives?
    If he had a strong disagreement with M Flaco could it have been over leadership? Cheyo doing M Gordo bidding? M Gordo was almost returning to México when he had "a change of heart". Could a message relayed to him by his father where he chose his heir apparent have affected his calculations in the presumed hierarchy? So many questions.

Pants being lower than usual can come from loads of things- dragging dead bodies by the underarms to the roadside, forcing them to drop their trousers so they can't run then shooting them, it isn't always about humiliation in itself. It means nothing, even if his pants had been pulled down.

  30. I definitely think the scene was staged . Looks like he was killed(possibly in the passenger seat) , driven to the location the location he was found at , then placed in the drivers seat . If you look at the blood patterns on the passenger seat where the backrest and cushion meet , you’ll notice a pool of blood in the crease, where the blood sept in from someone bleeding out as they were laying in a partially reclined chair. The lack of blood right above the puddle in the crease of the seat is because his skin was firmly pressed against the seat as he was in a reclined position . He was definitely laying in the passenger seat at some time, bleeding out all the blood in his body . If you look at the bolsters of the passenger backrest in the photo (side closest to the drivers seat), you’ll notice the blood is not flowing at a downward angle . It’s flowing like if the seat had been reclined . The way gravity works would tell me that the passenger seat had to have been reclined enough , to where the angle of the blood on the side of the seat would be straight up and down . Blood or liquid doesn’t flow down sideways . And if you notice the lack of blood in the middle of the passenger backrest you’ll see that there’s a lack of blood in the middle . It’s because his body was laying firmly against it while he bled out , as he was being moved to that location. They reclined him in the seat as to not draw attention to his bloody body , as they drove through the town with him. And the lack of blood to the gunshot on the side of his head is because he didn’t have any blood left in his body to leak out when they shot him , presumably after they staged the scene . I can only imagine why they didn’t want these photos published. Even for those who don’t know too much about forensics type stuff, most people look at the photo and agree that something definitely looks off . It’s very easy to see that this was all staged . And say you don’t believe anything I’ve said so far , can we atleast agree that one gets shot in a drivers seat , but all their blood gets left on the passenger seat, including the pooling in the seat, all the while not getting any on the seat they actually were found in . To go to these lengths to stage his death this way tells me it most likely was someone who wanted him dead, and needed it to look as though it was someone else . If it really was his rivals , then why not just kill him and let him be found in whatever way he naturally dies .

    1. I think you bring up some interesting and valid points. Your explanation for the blood stains makes sense to me.

      I personally try to tread carefully with this kind of stuff because I know 1.) I'm not a forensic or medical expert, 2.) there is probably evidence in other parts of the vehicle that we can't see in these two photos that could change our analysis of what happened, so there is an unknowable factor to the whole thing.

      But I think we can all agree with what you said, that most people see these two photos and can tell that something is off. It doesn't seem likely that Cheyo was shot at that location just through the windshield.

      The strange thing is most people I've talked to said that Cheyo's vehicle was left in an area considered to be Mayo-territory.

      So it doesn't seem like it was MZ people who wanted to frame Chapitos or Guano's group for the hit, because they could have left Cheyo and the vehicle in Chapito or Guano territory? I don't know what to make of it.

      Delete
    2. Some one said that cheyo was the passenger, they got pulled over and when the driver got out they started shouting at cheyo and I guess he tried to drive away that’s why he’s on the driver seat. Damage to the body was too much and he just laid there.

      I wrote out a whole section about how Eli and Mayito Gordo likely dated but somebody else argued that Eli is just really affectionate with her relatives, so I removed it. Can you share any photos which make it clear that they dated?

      I'll update the images to include Julie. Thank you so much for telling me about Julie!

  37. I don't thi there's any real cover up or staging. Don't think it was Guano, Ivan's or anyone else. It was his team. The tell to me is the ask for respect. Sometimes you kill a compadre and sent flowers later. Happened a few times. The idea that he was a liability makes some sense. but he had to be angling for a reward, because a 10 year old indictment in San Diego isn't a lot of leverage. Not like SEMAR were hunting him down.

    but they are hunting a lot of people he's tied into.

On the way there, they get stopped by fake municipal/federal trucks. Driver gets his gun out like he’s going to fight them, but shoots Cheyo. Driver & others move his body to driver side.

  48. Alright party people let's dive deep into the rabbit hole. Cheyo was done with the life style . He decided to one day make contact with the DEA. To try to make a deal with cooperation. Hoping he can get a deal like mayito Gordo and serafin. 5 to 10 years keep his millions and eventually be a free man and live happily ever after in the USA. Mayo and his snitch sons got word. He was planning this. They where like no way Jose . This ain't no monkey see monkey do type of shit. This is do as your told not as I do type of shit. They summond him to a meeting . He shows up and is welcomed with hugs and handshakes . Then he's pinched and kicked on the ground. (His clothes look dirty). eventually his interrogated and set on his knees. When someone at close range shoots rapid shots first one hits him right above the nose and a shot next to it. He falls and dies . 2 people carry him to the white pick up passenger side . They decline seat possible put safety belt on so he stays in place and out of view from prying eyes. (This is how there is his blood on the passenger seat).this is where the 2 trucks seen come into play . One truck takes lead the white truck follows and the last truck follows the white truck . This keeps white truck coverage . They drive to the final destination. Two people get out of trucks . They come to cheyos dead body take of safety belt lift seat up. One person grabs him by the armpits . The other person grabs cheyos legs they carry him to the drivers side of the white pick up . First person shoves the body in as far as he can . Second personal adjust his right leg in a seating position and shoves his left leg side ways . That's when another person let's off some more rounds hitting him on the side of head. Where Hearst ellistrates the shot with no blood. This is when they riddle the hood and the windshield wiper the bullets. At this today me is when the witnesses see or hear what's going on and see the trucks drive off and that my party people is what happened. The lesson here for today. Only the Zambadas can snitch.

  52. If you look at the passenger seat it looks like there was a head pressed against the seat in blood. You can kind of make out hair imprints in the upper area of the spot. Also, I am shocked that nobody has entertained the idea that he was NOT the person driving the vehicle. One was to look at it would be that he was the passenger of the vehicle with someone else that was in on a plan to have him killed. Could possibly the driver pulled over on the side of the road for some reason knowing that killers were waiting at the spot to carry out the hit? Driver pulls over, opens door to get out leaving said door open for someone to spray him while he's in the passenger seat. Then after all is said and done driver walks around to passenger side to grab the body while shooter goes in from drivers side to grab him and they pull him over into driver seat. If the guy pulling him over to the driver seat pulls hard then his leg would be in that position in the seat if they failed to rearrange the body after moving him. It looks like he was trying to jump from drivers seat to passenger side to flee or take cover but to get into a seat right next to you wouldn't you keep your back to the back of the seat and kinda raise your butt and scoot over?; who does like a spin move to switch seats. (Left leg in that position looks like he was gonna spin around and not slide into the seat is what I'm saying). Also, the blood on the passenger seat to me looks like there was a body there for sure givin all the large empty areas with no blood. His face looks like it was wiped while blood was still wet right above his nose. could that be from his head hitting whomever tried to move his body from one seat to the other after death? Just my idea.
