CARLOS ENRIQUE SANCHEZ MARTINEZ AKA
EL CHOLO 
FOUNDER OF CARTEL JALISCO NUEVA PLAZA 

My name is Carlos Enrique Sanchez Martinez AKA El Cholo. I am originally from Guadalajara, Jalisco. I’m here because I’m an enemy of CJNG. I met with Omar García Harfuch in the Federal District so that he could give me his backing. This is due to us both being after the CJNG. 

And he did give me his full support. But he told me that he needed something relevant in return. So that I could operate with his support and his people among this city. And so I kicked everything off. All the crimes that took place in Tonalá, Tlaquepaque, and Tlajomulco I am personally responsible for.

And I myself called the authorities so that they would turn everything into a heightened police matter. The individuals who sponsor support here in the city are Mario Alberto AKA El 0-3, and Sambrano AKA El 0-2.

Anyways, I’m the person responsible for that grenade thrown some time ago at the American consulate. This was done to generate panic within the city. I also gave El Marino the orders to kill the 11 masons in Tonalá, in the La Jauja neighborhood. All the chaotic crimes that took place were done so on my orders. But I did this on the condition that Omar García Harfuch would support me in everything.

He is a criminalistic individual. You guys, the few or many that are still left supporting me. It’s best for your own good to just start taking care of your family. So, that you don’t end up like me.

EL CHOLO’S BRUTAL DEATH 

The torture-death video of Carlos Enrique Sanchez Martinez aka El Cholo or El 20 was never officially released to the public by Jalisco Cartel – New Generation. However, we can all imagine the horrific pain that was inflicted by the hands of the criminal group El Cholo used to work for. El Cholo or El 20 was believed to be a compadre of CJNG founder Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes aka Mencho. El Cholo killed a financial chief of CJNG without the approval of Mencho and other CJNG leaders, and this caused an all-out war in the metropolitan zone of Guadalajara. El Cholo’s base of operation was Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, from 2017-2021 Jalisco suffered unthinkable violence, and countless mass graves were found.

THE DOWNFALL OF EL CHOLO 

The downfall ultimately of El Cholo was ordering the death of 11 innocent bricklayers in the La Jauja neighborhood, in Tonalá, Jalisco, the motive behind it was so Jalisco would be flooded by the military. 

There is no real answer as to how CJNG Cartel was able to capture El Cholo. Whether El Cholo was turned in by someone close to him, or if CJNG paid huge money to law enforcement authorities to hand him over after the La Jauja massacre perhaps we might never know. 

Below are images of El Cholo interrogation and probable injuries by (CHAR): 

  • waterboarding torture seems to have occurred 
  • in the morgue picture, it seems the toes on the right leg are missing (cut off)
  • reportedly ribs were broken 
  • the upper chest is badly bruised 
  • teeth on the lower jaw seem to be missing 
  • eyes are believed to be gauged out 
  • the rest we can all see what happened to his face
