13-Year-Old Mexican Drug Cartel Hitman Found Dead, Tortured

CBS Houston, March 1, 2013

A 13-year-old Mexican drug cartel hitman was found dead along with five other people.

Univision reports that Jorge Armando Moreno’s body showed signs of torture when he was found near the town of Morelos.

Moreno—who was a member of the Los Zetas gang—was arrested earlier this month, along with 15 other suspects, and confessed to taking part in 10 executions.

He was released into his family’s custody because he was too young to be criminally prosecuted. Zacatecas state law says no one under the age of 14 can be subject to criminal prosecution.


The child’s mother is reportedly among the other people found dead. Three other unidentified women and one man were also found.

Earlier this week, a group of armed men broke into a prison and freed 12 prisoners in the state of Tamaulipas on the border with Texas.

  • His victims got the justice they were denied by the local authorities. I was talking to some mexican coworkers of mine, and they consider this story a happy ending.

  • StillModerated

    At least this brat never sneaked into California. Good riddance to the little sociopath.

    • I am moderated too …. “Shat happens” is apparently too offensive.

      So he wasn’t a DREAMer?
      Maybe not, but right now he’s taking the Big Sleep.

        I believe this is called the Dirtnap.

    If anyone cares to look for it, there are videos of Mexican drug gangs making rival gang members or just someone they need to take out, make a statement on camera and then be cut up with a chain saw. Gruesome stuff. But the look on the faces of the victims of blank acceptance of their fate is interesting. I guess if you run in those circles you sort of know that could be your end one day. They might have done the same thing to someone else already.

    • So CAL Snowman

      I’ve seen those videos, they are gruesome in the extreme. Especially the ones with the chain saw. You would think that the head would come right off, but no it takes a little bit of effort. These people are not human in my opinion. They lack empathy, compassion and a soul.

      • bluffcreek1967

        Yeah, this is the sort of people Mexico sends us. This is sort of people who cross our unprotected borders and live amongst us in our communities. Tragic!

        • The__Bobster

          I wonder how many of these creatures Obongo sprung in the last two weeks.

      • AB7

        Same civilization of the Aztecs, with their religion and sport of human sacrifice and cutting out of the hearts of the victims. But to hear the insane liberals the bad guys were the Spanish/Catholics who brought their evil civilization to the holy pious peaceful wonderful natives and destroyed their civilization, raped their land, destroyed their culture and exploited their resources.

          I work with a guy who is half German-American and half Mexican. He said he was shocked at how clean Spain was when he went over there. He’d always assumed that the Spanish were the slobs who polluted the Mexico!

          He also said we should annex Mexico in order to fix it. I pointed out that Mexico is a totally different culture from ours.

          He also said we should speak Spanish because it’s simpler. No regard for the fact that Spanish is spoken in poor, corrupt, culturally inferior countries. When I pointed out that English is the language of science, medicine, trade, aircraft navigation, diplomacy, great literature, computer programming, etc. all he could say was, “You’ve heard of the browning of America right?” as if I was going to say, “Yeah, you’re right, we may as well face up to that fact and speak Spanish.” Instead I said, “Yes, and it’s a total disaster for this country.” When he asked why, I said there was no such thing as a succesful brown country, never was and never will be.

          • Eddie Willers

            Didn’t the Democrats call for annexation after the war of 1848? It may well have been that the US might have integrated along Argentinian lines if that had happened.

          • JDInSanDiego

            What I remember from history is that Americans were psyched to have beaten the Mexicans and expected the US to ‘take them over” but Congress wisely pointed out that they were a different culture and would remain in control of their country. For some unknown reason we then paid for damages done within Mexico and we also paid for the Southwest. The Mexicans accepted the terms and the cash and laughed at us for buying a useless desert. They layer sold the Gadsden purchase and laughed again, both times squandering the money and never contesting the deals.

        Middle and high school students in L.A. pass around these videos on their cell phone. After I confiscated his cell phone, I asked the student how he found out about this link. He said, “His parents.”

      • Felix_M

        They lack empathy, compassion and a soul.

        And they’re coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
        2nd amendment? Yes and always.
        2nd amnesty? Never.

    • whiteyyyyy

      Someone linked a video here showing mexi’s cutting other mexis heads off. Weirdest thing I ever saw. If it was a movie the victims would be begging or crying, I figured they drugged them or something. They were so calm. They cut 3 guys heads off, the 4th guy’s just waiting for his turn. Unreal stuff.

  • NYB

    This sort of thing went on during the time of Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa. Mass murder, body mutilation, extortion, kidnappings, torture, banditry, lawlessness….

    Except for the modern weapons, nothing has changed in Mexico in a century. Anyone who believes Mexico can be reformed doesn’t know history.

    • The__Bobster

      Some Libertarians believe that legalizing drugs would stop the violence. Well, the Mestizos were brutalizing each other long before there was a massive drug trade.

      • IstvanIN

        The Spanish chronicled the brutality of the indians when they first got here. Archeologists still find new evidence of the brutality of pre-Columbian Meso-American and South American life. It is in their genes.

      • Jefferson

        Another problem I have with libertarians is that the majority of them are pro-open borders.

        There are a few exceptions like Adam Carolla for example who is a libertarian that is against open borders and amnesty for illegals.

        But the majority of libertarians are to the left of Hussein Obongo on illegal immigration.

        • Digitoxin

          Your frustration is valid. I’m much more right-leaning as a libertarian, in that while I support homosexual marriage, there is absolutely nothing I find agreeable about the current “administration” and granting amnesty to millions of illegals – or turning a blind eye to our borders. Lefties think they’re doing everyone a favor by opening the floodgates, so they can all “have a better life”; harping on all day about the wonderful benefits all this diversity is bringing us, while ignoring the violence and social/economic decay it’s bringing us. To know and not to know at once is the only way liberals know to process the truth. Orwell called it “doublethink.”

          Illegals blatantly disregard, and subsequently break, international laws; they subvert our system six ways from Saturday, bypassing proper citizenship processing, claiming entitlement to jobs they’re not even legally eligible to hold, and not paying their share of taxes while they enjoy all this – then are allowed to enjoy taxpayer benefits on the side, to boot. Every time they walk out the door, they fly a Mexican flag. That’s not something you do in a country you love – that’s what you do on conquered land, period. Along with the drug cartels, it’s practically an open declaration of war. Anyone who enables this is a treasonous serpent unfit to be registered to vote here. They obviously don’t care how badly their poor judgments harm America, so long as they as individuals feel vindicated from phantom crimes of racism. So long as they, themselves, feel good and morally righteous. Don’t even get me started on organic foods.

  • Uh-Oh

    I can only wonder if it was his own gang that killed him for the confession.

  • Howard W. Campbell

    Wow, a hit-man at age 13. When I was 13, I had a paper route and mowed lawns for extra money; this kid makes me look like a slacker.

    I guess Jorge was doing a job that most 13 y.o. kids won’t do.

    • Strider73

      Last summer a 13-year-old black punk in SC tried to rob a white man at gunpoint. Fortunately the man had his own gun and shot the punk dead.

      Soon after that a 7-year-old black punklet took part in a Philly-area home invasion.

      Bottom line: the age limit of dark-skinned savagery is getting lower and lower. When the SHTF we can’t hesitate to kill any of them, even the “youths.” Hesitation can be fatal.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    No great loss. He would have continued killing, murdering many more.

    The drug cartels increasingly are using juvie killers for their dirty work on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. border.

    Not like we should secure the border or anything like that…According to Big brother, Napolitano, the border is secure.

    The U.S. border is secure and it is time to move forward on comprehensive immigration overhaul, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told ABC News in an exclusive interview.


    She wouldn’t lie to us, would she? According to DHS, the biggest threat isn’t the murderous Mexican cartel or 13-year old hitmen or TB resistant illegal immigrants, it is returning vets and “right wing extremists” who support the Constitution.

    At least it’s nice to know that Mexico’s total gun ban for its citizens is reducing crime.

      Thank you for more pictures. Is it OK if I admit that I love you again, even though I’m married and we are well past February 14?

      I’m on the Terrorist Watch List. My FBI file says “firearms expert, explosives expert, chemist, ex-mercenary.” I was made for America, but so were you.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        LoL, You can tell me you love me as many times as you wish!!

        We’re either gonna die fighting or be wiped out…that’s why I always say, “Handguns are a girl’s best friend.”

        (although in my case, I’ll take my rifle over my .35).

        We Scots love power, many of the finest rifles were honed by Scots who believed private property and family should be protected by deadly force.

        “I gave the people what they wanted…Power!!”

        — James Watt, Scottish inventor.

        I remember once being teased by some boys when I was visiting my grandparents in semi-rural Indiana — I ran home crying, my Scottish grandfather said not one word, grabbed his shotgun (which was ALWAYS within reach) and ran out onto the porch. The boys took one look and high tailed it out of there. I have NO doubt he would have killed those boys if they’d come any closer.

        We are not a peaceful people and we shouldn’t be. It’s the only way we’ve managed to survive through the eons. This fighting ability is still in us, buried deep and we will rediscover it when the time comes. We can only be pushed so far…

        Teach your children well.

  • bigone4u

    Several of the Hispanic high profile public educators in South Texas are Mexican supremecist La Raza types who claim that Mexicans are a noble, peaceful, honorable race, superior to evil whites in all ways. The rare white male (like me) who challenges this notion gets the racist labelt. The Mexicananos claim that it is the white appetite for drugs that causes the violence in Mexico. Yep, whitey is to blame for all of Mexico’s problems. Mexican supremecists are disgusting pieces of excrement as far as I am concerned.

    • Jefferson

      So Whites are blamed for the out of control violence in Mexico. The vast majority of Hispanic countries have an extremely high per capita murder rate. Will Whites also be blamed for the out of control violence in Venezuela, Honduras, Puerto Rico, and Colombia for example ?

      • uberluber

        Of course, if mighty whiteys (lack of capitalization is intentional) didn’t have a demand for their drugs, these places would all be violence free utopias with advanced technology and high standards of living! /endsarcasm

        Actually, by legalizing “narcotics”, organized crime could be near completely eliminated (racketeering excepted). It is prohibition which creates the large profit incentives for the suppliers of “illegal” drugs. For proof simply look at what prohibition did, it created plenty of small organized groups (and some larger ones) which were absorbed or eliminated by the 18th’s end. Would legalizing (and taxing as well as monitoring) narcotics completely eliminate crime? Not entirely, but it would make organized crime far less profitable thereby removing much of it as well as lowering enforcement costs/efforts. (Sarcasm start) But no, that will never happen because the Drug War is soooooo close to victory and has done so much to eliminate the avaialbility of drugs! (protip: it hasn’t, availability has actually increased) (/endsarcasm).

        Sorry to burst your bubble but hispanics are caucasians.

  • Digitoxin

    Poor dead, murdering, drug pushing kid. I’m sure he was looking to turn his life around by “immigrating” to America. We shall weep for him.

  • Greg Thomas

    Finally… some good news today….

  • American Patriot

    Excellent- its always a pleasure to see the enemy thin its own herd.

  • Paleoconn

    Liberal takeaway from this: this is proof that we need to give these underprivileged youngsters and their families a chance in our country so they don’t degenerate into a life of violent crime.

  • Felix_M

    Just more Latino family values.

    Won’t we drab Americans of European ancestry be fortunate to add tens of millions of more of these vibrant, colorful people to our dull United States through amnesty?

    (sarcasm off)
