Officials: Leader of Mexico's Zetas Drug Cartel Captured

Bad news for the Death Pictures & the Death Videos sections.
The boss of the notorious Los Zetas drugs cartel, Omar Trevino Morales, has been captured in Mexico.

Morales, alias 'Z-42', was arrested in a pre-dawn raid in a suburb of the northern city of Monterrey.

The drugs kingpin was one of the country's most wanted men and had a 30 million peso (£1.3m, $2 million more or less) bounty on his head (note: the article doesn't mention it, but the U.S. State Department offered a reward of up to $5 million).

He was wanted on weapons and organised crime charges.

Los Zetas are considered "the most technologically advanced, sophisticated and dangerous cartel" by the US government.

The largest of Mexico's eight major cartels in terms of geographical presence, they dominate vast areas of the country's east.

Morales is the brother of former Zetas' leader Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, arrested in July 2013 and described as the most bloodthirsty gang leader in Mexico.

Heriberto Lazcano, known as "El Lazca" and thought to be the other main leader of Los Zetas, was killed by marines a year earlier.

The latest arrest also comes just days after police detained the country's public enemy number one, Servando Gomez, head of the Knights Templar gang.

Mexico's drug cartels are locked in violent battles for control and influence.

They have existed for several decades, but saw their power increase dramatically following the decline of Colombia's dominant Cali and Medellin cartels in the 1990s.

pretty sure someone else from the zetas already has taken in his place but it's a start.

Re: Officials: Leader of Mexico's Zetas Drug Cartel Captured

not sure you can decapitate the cartels efficiently enough to stop them....but it does send a message to them that even their leaders are at risk of prosecution.

Not sure why this would be bad news for the gore section, now infighting will happen for power, judges will be killed, jurors, all kinds of death.

For sure.

It just reshuffles the deck, it's not like it makes any real difference.
