The severed head hangs from the Mexican flyover in stark warning to the cartel that is just teaming up with the former rival drug gang
- A severed head hung from an overpass fence in Tijuana, Mexico on Saturday
- The head was put in a bag with a poster with a message to members of the Tijuana New Generation Cartel
- The message was reportedly signed by members of the Arellano-Félix cartel, in a warning to the Tijuana New Generation cartel
- The message was written in Spanish and read, ‘This is going to happen to all the people hanging out with the new f ****** filthy people’
- The Arellano-Félix Cartel lost most of its power when its top leaders were arrested and either detained in Mexico or extradited to the United States

- Eduardo Arellano Félix, who led the Arellano-Félix cartel, is expected to be released from a federal prison in Pennsylvania in August.
A severed hearing was found hanging from an overpass 18 miles from the Mexico-United States border as part of a warning to a cartel teaming up with one of its former rivals.
Local media reported that around 2 a.m. on Saturday in the Tijuana neighborhood of Sánchez Taboada, authorities had been alerted to the gruesome sight.
The head was placed in a plastic bag tied to a rope. Also in the bag was a message that warned the Tijuana New Generation Cartel and accused the organization of its alleged links to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel.
The poster was signed by the Arellano-Félix cartel, also known as the Tijuana Cartel, and read, ‘This is going to happen to all the people hanging out with the new f ****** nasty people. ‘
A severed hearing was found at an overpass 18 miles from the Mexico-United States border as part of a warning from the Arellano Félix Cartel to the Tijuana New Generation Cartel over its relationship with the Jalisco New Generation Cartel
Founded in 2016 under the leadership of Héctor Manuel Morales Guzmán, the Tijuana New Generation cartel consists of cells fragmented from the Arellano-Félix cartel, according to Infobae.
However, the union was not approved by some cartel members who saw themselves as loyal to the leaders of the Arellano-Félix cartel, which was founded in 1989.
While most drug trafficking routes in Mexico are controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel and the Gulf Cartel, the Tijuana Cartel saw its power weaken with the arrests of its top boss, Javier Arellano Félix, in 2006.
The cartel fell under the control of his brother, Eduardo Arellano Félix, before he was arrested in October 2008 and extradited to the United States in October 2012.
Eduardo Arellano Félix once led the Arellano-Félix cartel before being arrested in October 2008 and extradited to the United States in October 2012. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison by a federal judge in San Diego in June 2013 for “ laundering tens of millions of dollars in illegal drug proceeds. ” But he will now be released on August 18 due to his collaboration with the US government
The organization was subsequently overrun by two cartel factions, one led by Luis Fernando Sánchez Arellano, who took the lead until his capture in June 2014, and Teodoro García Simental, who was detained in September 2010.
Eduardo Arellano Félix was sentenced in June 2013 by a federal court in San Diego to 15 years in prison for “ laundering tens of millions of dollars in proceeds from illegal drugs. ”
US authorities saw this verdict as the nail in the box for a transnational organization that “orchestrated the importation of hundreds of tons of cocaine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors said.
They say the cartel also ordered the kidnapping and murder of multiple people, and led the widespread corruption of law enforcement and military personnel in Mexico. ‘
Arellano Félix is expected to be released from prison on August 18 for his cooperation with US authorities.
He is currently being held at the Allenwood Federal Correctional Institution in Allenwood, Pennsylvania.
