Killer: El Ponchis (ABC)
Here’s video of the bloody 14 year-old hitman El Ponchis:
El Ponchis was captured yesterday with his sister by Mexican police at an airport before their planned escape to the United States.
The AP reported:
The Mexican army has detained a 14-year-old suspected of acting as a killer for a drug cartel, an army official said Friday. The boy said he had been working for the cartel since he was 11.
The much-rumored alleged young assassin nicknamed “El Ponchis” was captured late Thursday at the airport near Cuernavaca with his 16-year-old sister as they tried to catch a flight to Tijuana and flee the country, said the official, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case.
The sister told reporters that they planned to cross the border to San Diego, California, where their mother lives.
The two were brought to the office of the Mexican Attorney General’s Office in Cuernavaca early Friday, where the boy told reporters that he had participated in at least four decapitations. The source said his sister was accused of getting rid of the bodies by dumping them on streets and freeways.
“I participated in four executions, but I did it drugged and under threat that if I didn’t, they would kill me,” said the teen, who appeared calm and showed no remorse.
Another teenage sister accompanied the two, but officials said she was not suspected of being involved in the cartels…
…The boy said Friday he had been employed by the cartel since he was ll years old.
The earlier reports last month that El Ponchis had been captured were mistaken.
