rating: 0+x


March 13, 2009: Three American teenagers were initiated as assassins for the Mexican Gulf Cartel, one of Mexico's two major drug cartels. They were recruited into a group called "Los Zetas" when they hung out in clubs south of the border.

After receiving quasi-military training, the teenagers lived in safe houses around Laredo, and were paid up to $50,000 and 2 kilos of cocaine for each assassination. They also sported facial markings and tattoos of Santa Muerte.
