Alleged Texas Mexican Mafia Hit Man in San Antonio Admits to 16 Murders, Including Cop

Guillermo Contreras, Houston Chronicle, October 9, 2015

A purported hit man for the Texas Mexican Mafia has admitted he was involved in 16 murders for the gang, including carrying out or ordering the slayings of fellow gang members and a police officer.

Ruben “Menace” Reyes, 36, made the admission recently during a hearing in which federal authorities said he is suspected in twice as many killings. He did not specify which slayings he was involved in when questioned by Senior U.S. District Judge David Alan Ezra, but court records state he took out three high-ranking members of his gang and may have passed down orders targeting Balcones Heights Police Officer Julian Pesina.
