La Chin - head of the Mexican drug cartel and the most brutal female killer
The fearsome female head of the drug cartel, known for kidnapping victims and throwing their dismembered bodies on the doorsteps of the dead, was detained in Mexico after her lover, horrified by the monster she had turned into, was turned over to a police friend.
Melissa "La China" Calderon, who her boyfriend and deputy Pedro "El Chino" Gomez calls "maniac", is accused of killing 180 people. The largest female drug dealer was seized on Saturday, after El Chino transmitted information, including on the secret burial sites of his girlfriend's victims, to the authorities in exchange for a reduced sentence.
30-year-old Melissa Margarita Calderon Ojeda, known as "La China" (Chinese), became involved in organized crime in 2005, starting work for the drug cartel Damaso. This criminal organization has connections with the Sinaloa cartel,operating in the Mexican state of Lower California - one of the main regions of the country in terms of drug smuggling - and led by Gusman, who recently escaped from prison by Joaquin "El Chapo".
Known for her ruthlessness and cruelty, in 2008 she was appointed head of the armed wing of the cartel. Its power extended to the city of La Paz and the popular tourist resort of Cabo San Lucas, which is visited every year by hundreds of thousands of people.
In the seven years that she led the armed wing of the cartel, the number of murders in the state of Southern Lower California has tripled. La China became infamous because of the abduction of its victims from houses, and then throwing their dismembered bodies on the rapids, as a warning to local communities.
When she was offered to leave her post in the Damaso cartel, she fled and declared war on her former comrades. In order to motivate the gang members, La China ordered to give them sacks of cocaine. Rogelio "El Tyson" Franco (left) headed logistics, Sergio "El Scar" Beltran (center) became the main killer, and Pedro "El Peter" Cisneros (right) led the sale of drugs and the disposal of bodies.In addition, La China had more than three hundred street traffickers and fighters who rode on red motorcycles to thereby identify themselves.
La China paid great importance to safety and constantly changed cars and place of stay. In early August, fearing that her cars became known to the authorities and tracked, La China ordered logistics to El Tyson to buy a pickup truck. El Tyson sent two friends of his parents to La Chine who wanted to sell the car, but she killed them without paying anything. El Peter buried their bodies in a secluded area north of the city.
When El Tyson arrived at the scene and saw that his innocent friends had been brutally murdered, he became angry and threatened to call the police. In a fit of rage at the alleged treason, La China snapped El Tyson's forearm before killing him.
Shortly thereafter, the main killer of El Scar killed his favorite prostitute after she refused to further relations with him because of his brutal sexual tastes.
The last straw was the unsuccessful attempt to kidnap El Tocho, a member of the drug cartel Damaso, who fought for the territory of La China in La Paz.The gangsters managed to detain his girlfriend Lourdes, whom La China brutally tortured, trying to find out information, and then killed her.
After that, El Chino, the lover of the head of the drug cartel, shocked by her cruelty, left the gang and was soon captured by the police. During interrogation, he spoke about how La China’s behavior got out of control. His words were soon confirmed by El Peter, who was detained a week later. El Peter showed the police the secret burial sites.
La China was arrested without a shot on Saturday, September 19, at Los Cabos International Airport, during an attempt to flee the country. She was taken to a prison in La Paz, a city that she controlled only three months ago. La Chinu is currently being questioned in Mexico City, next year she will stand trial for more than 150 murders.
