Is El Gringo Dead?

Numerous reports emerged that the leader of the Gulf Cartel (Cartel del Golfo) in Reynosa was killed in a shootout with the Mexican military. El Gringo, the leader, has been in the spotlight recently for his pact with the Sinaloa Cartel and his war with the Zetas.

Apparently cartel gunmen attacked the military officers earlier this week, leading to a gunbattle which killed 4 cartel members. Blockades were set up by Golfos in attempt to stop military officers from aiding in the fight.

Sources state that El Gringo was born in Texas, where he is able to hide out for decent amounts of time.

Mexico has made it a point to properly identify cartel leaders after arrest of death, following a slip up on a man who was mistaken for El Chapo’s son. If he is dead then it should be revealed any day. My guess is he is alive and well.
