This past May, PROCESO published an article depicting “Betty La Fea” as the new leader of the criminal organization created by “El Señor de los Cielos” and how he, along with help from Los Zetas and the Beltran Leyva brothers, fought against Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Carrillo Fuentes tried to recover the control of the drug trade in Ciudad Juarez, a city where the criminal group of “El Chapo” Guzman arrived during the past Federal Administration causing intense shootouts making Ciudad Juarez one of the world´s most violent cities.
Identified by Mexico´s General Attorney Office (Procuraduria General de la Republica-PGR), as the leader of the New Juarez Cartel, Alberto Carrillo Fuentes was chased by Federal Police since the beginning of this administration. Carrillo was taken to SEIDO´s headquarters in Mexico City.
Carrillo has charges against him for organized crime, crimes against health(drugs), and murder.
