Hitman For Drug Cartel Has No Regrets About ‘Disappearing’ 30 People

A 29-year-old hitman for a drug
cartel in Mexico has revealed that in the past nine years he has killed 30
people. He, however, says he is not a professional killer but raises cattle for
a living although he is paid for “disappearing” people.
In Mexico the term “disappearing”
is used to describe a killing or kidnapping after which victims’ bodies are
never discovered. The unnamed hitman knows what he does is illegal but in doing
so he believes he is keeping his neighbourhood safe from other drug cartels.
“A lot of times your
neighborhood, your town, your city is being invaded by people who you think are
going to hurt your family, your society,” the killer told Associated Press
in an interview, wearing a ski mask with his voice distorted. “Well, then
you have to act, because the government isn’t going to come help you”.

The killer says “he sometimes
feels sorry about the work he does but has no regrets” because he is
defending his community from other cartels.
People are “disappeared”
when they are from rival gangs, if someone hands out information to other
cartels, for security reasons or for ransom, according to the killer. He says
he does not disappear people for ransom or kill women or children. Besides, he
says he does not make his victims dig their own graves.
The best place to kidnap a person
is from his home early in the morning, “when everyone is asleep”,
says the hitman. An unarmed target can be kidnapped by just two people, while
armed targets need more manpower, he says. After the kidnapping, the target is
taken to a safe house where he is tortured for information. “With time,
you come to learn how to hurt people, to get the information you need,” he
The hired gun says, “99% will
give you that information.” Once they do he kills them “usually with
a gun”. The dead are buried in places such as graveyards, thrown in oceans
or burned. But, if a cartel wants to send a message to another cartel then the
bodies are dumped in public places.
He says no one forced him to do
this kind of work and his parents and siblings — he guesses — might know what
he does as he is always armed. The killer fears death but more than that he
fears being captured by a rival cartel. He would like to start a family but one
cannot “make plans for the future, because you don’t know what will happen
tomorrow”, he says. “It’s not a pretty life.”

According to government figures,
26,000 people have gone missing in Mexico since 2007.
