EL CHAPO’s top assassin, dubbed the “Kim Kardashian of organised crime”, has been found dead in her lover’s bed in mysterious circumstances.
Claudia Ochoa Felix, 35, is believed to have led the assassin unit of the Sinaloa Cartel, which was headed by Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman before his extradition to the US.
The beautiful brunette is also referred to as as ‘Emperatriz de Los Antrax’, otherwise known as ‘Anthrax Empress’.
She was found dead in a house in Isla Musala in the city of Culiacan in the north-western Mexican state of Sinaloa.
According to local media, the 35-year-old woman died during the night of a suspected pulmonary aspiration.
However, it is unclear whether she was the victim of foul play or whether it was an accidental death.
Aspiration occurs when someone breaths foreign objects such as fluids into their lungs, causing choking and death.
Reports said that she went to a nightclub in the city and returned to a man’s house later that night.
The presumed lover said he tried to wake Ms Felix but when she did not respond he called the local authorities.
Her body has been taken to a forensic lab to undergo an autopsy.
According to local media, the curvy brunette worked as a model and was romantically linked to Jose Rodrigo Arechiga, better known as ‘El Chino Antrax’.
Arechiga headed the Anthrax gang that is connected to the Sinaloa Cartel before his imprisonment.
Reports also said that she was married to a drug trafficker with the Sinaloa Cartel nicknamed ‘El Chavo Felix’ whom she had three children with.
After Chinese Anthrax was arrested, Felix then became the Anthrax group’s leader and the cell followed the orders of Sinaloa Cartel leader Ismael El Mayo Zambada to carry out hits, according to local media.
Prosecutor Juan Jose Rios Estavillo said that alcohol and other substances were found in Ochoa Felix’s body and that she died of suffocation.
Autopsy results are pending and the investigation is continuing.
