The just deceased editor of the Tijuana weekly paper Zeta, Jesús
Blancornelas, who was a close observer of the drug trafficking
groups and who actually survived being perforated by their lead
laden antipathy toward him (see above) said an Arellano Félix
sister, Enedina, has taken over the day-to-day administration
of The Cartel.
Not everyone at Zeta survives such encounters.
Hector Felix Miranda, co-founder of the Zeta newspaper, was murdered
by two Cartel gunmen.
But there’s more.
Francisco Ortiz Franco, another editor of Zeta,
departed our world while sitting in his car with his children
(8, and 10) at his side when eager two youths wearing masks put
four bullets into his face. While the children were “unharmed”
they won’t forget “dead daddy” for a long, long
while. The murder occurred on a busy Tijuana street and only a
block from Baja California State Police offices.
Speaking about the violence and murder in Tijuana,
Governor of Baja California Eugenio Elorduy Walther said: “We
consider this a challenge to authority, but also a challenge to
Baja California society.”
Baja California Assistant Attorney General Rogelio
Delgado Neri downplayed all such scurrilous comments as being
“scurrilous comments.” Sr. Delgado even put the total
murder rate in Tijuana at “only” 261 a year.
But Sr. Delgado was then, and almost immediately,
blasted into the land of immortality while sitting at a local
popular Tijuana bar. The many nearby Gringo-tourists must have
loved those few minutes of real life adventure.
Remember, Tijuana is:“… a place for adventure! Tijuana
today can be one of the most exciting cities on earth if you know
where to look.” Yes, just follow the wafts of cordite smoke
and the slippery trails of blood.
ZETAS is a real professional murder for hire
outfit and has over a hundred murders to its credit and scores
The local Tijuana editor "Dead Daddy"
Francisco Ortiz must have been one of ZETAS first local targets.
The Arellano Felix's Cartel gunmen usually just spray bullets
everywhere -- even killing their own men in the process. Ortiz
was shot in the face four times from close range and the gunmen
purposely avoided killing the children a few feet away.
