MEXICO'S most powerful drugs kingpin may be brought down by his own daughter after she was busted by the US authorities, says a top expert.
Nemesio 'El Mencho' Oseguera Cervantes – leader of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) – is said to fear she may turn snitch and spill the beans on his multi-billion pound operation.
The organisation's ruthless rise to dominance has seen its brutal soldiers rip out victims' hearts, dissolve their bodies in acid and even target pregnant women.
The US' Drug Enforcement Administration is now offering a $10,000,000 reward for information that leads to the capture of El Mencho.
Until now, investigators have been met with a wall of silence as those who co-operate know they will almost certainly face a fate even worse than death.
However, now El Mencho's daughter- Jessica Oseguera Gonzalez – has pleaded guilty to having business dealings with companies blacklisted by the US Treasury Department.
The 34-year-old will be sentenced later this year and may face decades behind bars unless she can somehow strike a "get out of jail" deal with the authorities.
And Robert Almonte, a former US federal marshal who spent 25 years tackling narcotics, believes she may hold crucial info which could be used against the CJNG.
He told the Daily Star: "There is no doubt that Jessica has information and was directly involved in the operations for her dad.
“El Mencho has to be worried, because he knows that Jessica has substantial knowledge…that if provided to the US authorities could significantly damage the CJNG and may even lead to (his) arrest."
In February, we reported how it was feared the cartel leader was hunkered down surrounded by a private army protecting his massive empire day and night.
Mike Vigil, a former Drug Enforcement Agency chief, told The Sun Online that El Mencho has brought a new level violence that marks him out from other drugs kingpins.
“I would describe El Mencho a hyperviolent and extremely cunning but not ostentatious like most drug traffickers," he said.
However, the ruthless warlord has been investing a huge amount of cash in building a "state within a state" which is armed to the teeth with machine guns and rocket launchers.
His private criminal security force is even seen as a challenge to the Mexican Army.
Vigil has observed closely the rise of the drug lord and how the CJNG has even eclipsed the empire of Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman – once considered to be the most powerful drug trafficker in the world.
“Make no mistake about it El Mencho is deadlier than a rattlesnake – and totally more deadly than El Chapo," he warned.
