Leader of La Familia cartel killed, really this time

(A Cartel leader thought to be dead 3 years ago, wasn’t)….But, he is now.

It had been reported that Nazario Moreno, known as El Chayo, had been killed in December 2010. Moreno was one of the leaders of the La Familia drug cartel. Mexico’s National Public Safety chief Monte Alejandro Rubido told a briefing Sunday that military staff tried to apprehend Moreno, but he resisted and they responded by killing him on the spot. The shooting occurred in Michoacan, Mexico, in an area known as the Hot Spot. Officials say a fingerprint comparison determined that this time, El Chayo really was the one killed.
