Cartel boss Carlos Enrique Sanchez, ‘El Cholo’, appeared in a video shortly before found dead in a Mexico park
Mexican authorities believe a body found wrapped in plastic and left on a park bench in Guadalajara belongs to notorious drug lord "El Cholo."
While not yet formally identified, signs pinned to the corpse with knives said in Spanish, "the traitor El Cholo", the nickname for Carlos Enrique Sanchez.
Formerly a top member of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), Sanchez left the group to form a competing criminal gang known as La Nueva Plaza in 2017
The ensuing war for control of Guadalajara’s drug trade led to an escalation of violence in the city.
The body was found in Jardin Hidalgo in the city of Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, on Thursday, shortly after video emerged on YouTube of Sanchez handcuffed and surrounded by six masked and armed men as he took responsibility for the spate of violence in recent years.
