More on Nacho Coronel

Jorge Fernández Menéndez on the death of Nacho Coronel:
The Secretary of National Defense has decided not to make public the operational procedures that allowed them to get to Coronel, but it has emphasized, first, that for a while they had been carrying out a rigorous intelligence tracking of the capo; also, that his localization and the capture attempt (Coronel died while trying to escape from one of them two houses in Zapopan that he used as his base of operations) was the exclusive work of military intelligence: no other federal force, not to mention the states, participated in the operation and nor was there, in this case, no type of collaboration with some type of external, international intelligence.

Unlike other capos, Nacho Coronel didn't utilized strong security units to ensure his safety. He use to be, as he was when the confrontation that ended his life took place, with just one bodyguard and preferred to operate with a low profile, until yesterday at 1:30 p.m., when the military forces prepared his detention: with his death the Sinaloa cartel suffered the strongest blow of the sexenio.
