They will get their man

The FBI, DEA, and other alphabet agencies are tenacious on the path of drug dealers who murdered one of their own over 30 years ago. The agents have not given up. We are thankful they continue to pursue justice no matter how long it takes. #FBI #DEA #Drugs #Justice #Mexico #mostwanted #Camarena #RedRibbon

UPDATE:

3/15/2020:

The DEA and Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that the FBI has added Caro Quintero to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List and that a $20 million reward provided by the United States Department of State is being offered for information leading to his capture.

“As alleged in the indictment, Caro Quintero is drug kingpin responsible for a murder conspiracy targeting those who posed a threat to his drug trafficking organization, including DEA Special Agent Enrique Camarena who bravely worked to stop traffickers like the defendant from flooding our country with dangerous narcotics,” stated United States Attorney Donoghue.  

According to the indictment, between January 1980 and January 2017, Caro Quintero led a continuing criminal enterprise responsible for importing into the United States and distributing massive amounts of illegal narcotics and conspiring to murder persons who posed a threat to his narcotics enterprise.  The murder conspiracy includes Caro Quintero’s kidnapping and murder of DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico in February 1985.

A civil complaint against eight real properties located in and around Guadalajara, Mexico was unsealed in federal court in Brooklyn.  The properties described in the complaint are alleged to have been purchased by Rafael Caro Quintero with drug proceeds obtained through his leadership of the Caro Quintero drug trafficking organization, a faction of the Mexican organized crime syndicate known as the Sinaloa Cartel. 

“...efforts to seize properties Caro Quintero purchased with blood money reaped from the drug trafficking, addiction and violence he sowed in the United States and Mexico is just the latest step in our pursuit of justice,” stated United States Attorney Donoghue.  “We will never forget that Caro Quintero is responsible for the murder of Special Agent Camarena and he now faces a stark choice between the only available endings - an American prison or a Mexican grave, and now is the time to choose.”
