17 yr old El Ponchis is back in the US:
Mexico: Teen hit man freed, sent to U.S.
Mexican authorities set free a former teen cartel hit man on Tuesday and sent him back to the United States.
The release of Edgar Jimenez Lugo, a U.S. citizen known as “El Ponchis” or “The Cloak,” comes less than three years after a Mexican court found him guilty of torturing and beheading at least four people and kidnapping three others as an operative for the South Pacific Cartel.
On Tuesday, Mexican authorities said he had served his three-year sentence and had been sent back to the United States.
This was a very high-profile case at the time, and parts of El Ponchis’s interrogations were shown on TV.
He’s certainly not the only one; earlier this year a 13 yr old hit man was executed. Prior to his release, El Ponchis had requested police protection, which was denied, and he was deported to the US.
In a somewhat lighter mode, Paco Almaraz had the burnt-out El Ponchis (in Spanish).
