How old are you?
Who is your direct boss?
I won’t say anything about my boss, but you can ask anything about me
How much do they pay you?
20,000 monthly (apx 1500 USD) What year and at what age did you commit your first murder?
I’ve only killed in confrontations. My first confrontations were with La Familia Michoacana, then with the Federal Police on 3 occasions 2 more with the military who by accident I ran into them and 1 more with the Marina (navy).
Now the problem is with the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion CJNG.
Who makes the decisions of who to kill?
Those questions I will not answer because I give orders as they are given to me. I’ve never killed in cold blood but I’ve been present in many executions.
How do you find your victims? In the same way that they find us, locating and investigating people to find out if they have anything to do with the others.
Have you killed any women?
No we don’t do that, only men, killing women is prohibited.
Do you feel sadness for your victims?
I do not like to hurt people that have not done anything to me; I am not a bad person it’s just that I am in an ugly line of work. If I told you why I entered this you would understand. “It was not for the money it was for the women and fame.”
I haven’t killed. nor would I kill, without reason. How are your normal days?
My normal days are not common but they are wonderful because I am a celebrity, like an artist the whole world greets you and they want to take pictures with you the whole world wants to buy you something.
What does your family think of what you do? Obviously my family doesn’t support me, my father works for the Government, and obviously he doesn’t like what I’m doing here, but I live my life and he lives his. I like my work and what they think does not matter and if they don’t like it too well. How long do you think you’re going to be in this line of work?
I don’t know how long, I hope many years but I think my days are numbered but whatever I last is cool that’s why I try to enjoy them as much as possible.
Where did you work before you became a sicario?
I worked in many places, in a candy warehouse, in a bakery and I really never made much money.
I’m not one of those abusive persons, I am not an asshole with people, to this point I have never beat anyone, there was only one person and that’s because the bosses were there, they even loaded it to facebook the person was right next to me. Who or what are you afraid of?
I fear the company, I do fear them, my bosses. well because they can kill me whenever they feel like it, they can tell me to stop by and me without knowing can stop by and well you know, that’s why I’ve always tried to be a good constituent.
But yes it bothers them that I post things on facebook, I don’t comment anything bad, but many are copying my name on facebook and they say things about work even though they don’t know anything but they post comments and others think it’s me.
Why did you become a hit man?
Because I wanted to die, back then when I entered this, my life didn’t matter, I didn’t like the lifestyle that I had. Before I was very shy and I could not maintain a good conversation with women but now with facebook the whole world wants to talk to me and it has made me coexist with so many people and so many people that want to chat with me. Before I was very lonely and for me it was very sad and the truth I don’t want to be that person again, it was humiliating ugly sad.
I’d like to get out, but I can’t, even though I left the Government will continue looking for me, and so would my enemies and they would not care if I left they would just say he is one of them kill him.
Has it been worth it?
Well it has been worth it because I joined this so they could kill me, so now till they kill me, now I have women to pick from, I decide you yes- you no. They give me thousands of gold things, clothes and many other things.
How did you get into the business?
I am not going to talk about that
What were the circumstances of your first murder?
I don’t do that, I am not a cold blooded killer, when you have to kill someone by orders or for whatever reason, I give someone else the order to do it, in clashes yes, there I’ll do it, I even like to show off. What do you think of your fame on the internet?
How many people have you tortured?
Only one, that person from a photo that went up on facebook but I really don’t do that, I don’t like that. Clashes yes, those I like, I even like to show off.
How many days off you get per week?
2 per week, anywhere else they just give you one, here they give you 2
Have you saved your money, or what do you do with all that?
No, because I give most of it to my wife and she is a big spender, like all women, you know and me well I buy my things, I like to dress well and all that shit and I spend it on that and in details for the ladies, really small things, because they are not interested in my money, stuff like small stuffed animals and things like that. How long did it take you to become fully competent as a Sicario?
I don’t know when I entered, it had only been like 5 months then that thing with La Familia happened and I fought and that’s how it happened.
Describes one or two situations that are the most exciting for you?
Exiting, well I don’t know what! What the women write on my facebook is exciting, and the types of animals that I see in the wild, I love nature, it’s exciting when I see the stars fall into the night while I am in the mountains, seeing falling meteorites.
