Female gang boss, 22, is captured in Texas after cutting out the HEARTS of victims in Mexico as part of bloodthirsty rituals to the Holy Death saint
Michelle Pineda was apprehended by the FBI and U.S. Border Patrol in El Paso, Texas, last Thursday
Authorities raided her hotel and discovered two guns, knives, machetes and an unspecified amount of drugs, including fentanyl powder and pills
The 22-year-old, who is accused of five murders, is a member of 'Artistas Asesinos,' an enforcement unit of the Sinaloa Cartel

A Mexican woman wanted for a string of gang murders and dismembering her victims was arrested at a Texas motel by the FBI and U.S. Border Patrol.

Michelle Pineda was allegedly involved in five murders and suspected of playing a role in several other killings in the border town of Ciudad Juárez, the FBI said in a statement.

The 22-year-old was notoriously known for dismembering the bodies of her victims and removing their hearts, which were placed on an altar in front of the 'Santa Muerte' ('Holy Death'), a Mexican folk saint that is represented by a skeletal figure.

Pineda had unlawfully crossed the United States-Mexico border and was running a drug trafficking ring for the 'Artistas Asesinos' street gang - a Sinaloa Cartel enforcement unit.





Pineda and Artistas Asesinos gang members reportedly murdered more than 20 people, whose bodies were dismembered and abandoned across Ciudad Juárez, according to the Chihuahua State Attorney General's Office.

Pineda allegedly murdered a couple on November 24, 2003, and killed a man December 5.

The male victim's neck was cut and his body was dismembered at a home and placed in bags that were found strewn in the border city.

Carlos Salas, who serves as the attorney general in Chihuahua's northern zone, told El Diario de Juárez newspaper that Pineda's criminal record dates to when she was just 13 years old.

'This young woman grew up surrounded by violence, both inside her home and outside,' he said. The time came when she became involved with the Artistas Asesinos … a structure in which she escalated very quickly.'

'He was a priority objective for both countries, as a member of the criminal group,' Salas added. 'She was very versatile and operated on both sides of the border, she knew in many cases when the police were nearby and she fled in a timely manner from the places where they were already located and almost about to be arrested.'

Successful at least 5 times apparently.

there was a similar story from Nigeria where they use a lot of tongues and eyes and stuff to make magic potions. A group was kidnapping people then keeping them chained up in a shed. They would take orders for body parts then go in there and cut them off in a way to keep them alive for as long as possible

El Paso and Juarez have always been darkly fucked up, I try to explain it, but most Americans can't really wrap their heads around how dark a lot of Mexican culture really is.

To be fair, you have to be actively involved in that culture to face the consequences.

Even when they accidentally murder an innocent civilian, they'll make a formal apology.

Feel like if you're getting chainsawed or having your heart removed, it wasn't a simple "being in the wrong place at the wrong time" moment.

Hello fellow gun enthusiast:

That’s a revolver, and revolvers and pistols have grips, not handles, unless we’re talking about certain Mausers.

That’s not true at all.

Those folks (some of them, anyway) would shoot you in the belly or set you on fire just because they’re bored.  The rest give zero fucks whether you live or die.

Your premise is flawed.

The attitude that you just displayed actually has a name - it's called the "Just World Hypothesis," and is actually a cognitive bias in psychology.

It's absurd.

I know a Mexican who lives on the US side, he had extended family killed by some sort of hit. The hit came during a child's party, multiple teens / young adults killed. Adult man injured and taken to US side for medical care (common process) where he was treated in undisclosed location. Fortunately the young children were upstairs at the time and not harmed.

Yup.

The old Aztec gods never were conquered.  They’re just practicing their traditional religion.

The old gods are brutal.  Horrifying for modern man to comprehend.
