The assassination of Julian Daniel Corona Maldonado, alias “El Chiquis” a US government informant.
During September 2nd, of 2013, El Chiquis attempted to cross the border of Tijuana into the United States. He was accompanied by a lady that was well known in the social circles of criminal organizations and a couple of friends. They were heading to Las Vegas, Nevada, to assist to the boxing match of Floyd Mayweather vs “Canelo” Alvarez, a fight that resulted a fraud to all the Mexicans, however that's another story.

Well, El Chiquis couldn't even watch the fight through a television, because he was detained and arrested at the border. During the interrogation, he accepted to collaborate with information of the structures of drug trafficking organizations in exchange of a reduce sentence of 3 years of the 15 that he was supposed to spend in jail.
Chiquis snitches on “Los Mazatlecos”, from where he was a native and had problems with. He snitches on Saul Loya, known as “El Loya”, as the person in charge of the Mazatlan, Sinaloa Plaza and a major smuggler of marijuana through maritime means. He also snitches on “Pulmonero”, El gordo Rosario as an important member of the Sinaloan Cartel and several others.
The American government wasn't really interested in them, they wanted people from Culiacan and the ones that “El Chiquis” worked with, they were, La Rana, Aquiles, Los Antrax and Chencho Beltran. Chiquis accepts to cooperate with this information and snitches on all of them.
In the north of the country, they thought that he didn't snitch and as time passes by ”El Changuito Antrax” is detained. Immediately Chiquis is notified of his detention and he requests a Visa for his whole family. He knew that his little theater was going to fall and that's exactly what happened. Changuito fixes his exit with his lawyers and just before leaving jail, his extradition papers arrive.
Everyone though that “El Chino Antrax” snitched on him, however while reading his criminal files he notice that someone who only saw 3 times and never had a work relation with snitched on him, “el Chiquis”. The criminal files get to the hands of all the people that he pointed at. Everyone was concerned, he snitched on all the cartels, El Mayo Zambada, Aquiles, La Rana, Changuito, the ones who we already mention in Mazatlan and Tijuana, his friends and collaborator “El Sopas”, a closed man to Chencho Beltran.
He pointed El Sopas and La Rana as the major traffickers of marijuana and a link between Chencho and Aquiles. Through La Rana and El Sopas, his declaration was exposed to the people that he snitched on. When they notice the betrayal, they ask his mother for an explanation, because she spoke to him, however el Chiquis had already made the first move, he got a Visa for all his close family members.
Chiquis denies that he snitch on them, but because of the proof, his denial doesn't last long and he starts a relation with the group H9, El Dany de Nayarit, who is an enemy of the Sinaloan Cartel. Chiquis knew that he had powerful enemies, Loya was one of them, and he had a personal fight with him for the love of a beautiful woman who was a past beauty queen of the Carnaval de Mazatlan.
Their rivalry was so intense, that in several occasions they had fights in nightclubs and restaurants, till El Chiquis was expelled from Mazatlan. The people had he snitch on were anxiously waiting for him to leave Mazatlan.
In October 1st he made it out of jail and he settle in Tijuana, Baja California. Los Antrax notified the Cartel of Tijuana of his exit and the people from Mazatlan were waiting for his arrival at the port. A call to a ranch of Mazatlan cost him his whereabouts. El Chiquis gets comfortable and he called the ones he betrayed, and ask them for money that they owe him and proposed to work with them to fix the damages that he made.
El Chiquis forgot that mafias do not forgive. In October 30, El Chiquis gets in touch with a trafficker from Guadalajara, who makes an appointment with him in La Zona Rio and alerts the offended parties, who followed him and killed him. A strong and clear message from la mafia. The code of silence, remains of high value.
