Carolina Rueda Martínez, “La Pantera,” Serial Assassin - Mexico, 2011

FULL TEXT (auto-translated from Spanish): Carolina Rueda just turned 23 years old. Since she was a girl, at her house in Tula, Hidalgo, she was "scolded" because she went out at night and her family did not like that. Those around her suspected that she had become a sex worker, but the reality was different: she was the ringleader of hit men in a Los Zetas cell. Mother of an eight-month-old baby, Hidalgo authorities point her out as responsible for at least 15 homicides committed by this criminal group. They know that she participated in dozens of kidnappings. And they say that she was the bloodiest person in the band. They knew her as The Panther.

Her nickname was given to her by her accomplices, since she was a partner of the leader: Commander Leo. She used to be the partner of the chief of the Tula square: Commander Memín, a man who left her when she was pregnant, and that he left the group after keeping the profits from a series of kidnappings. The investigations to reach La Pantera began on January 22 and were carried out by Public Security of Hidalgo, headed by Damián Canales Mena.

That day a car bomb exploded in Tula. A police officer died there. Those responsible left a narco-message signed by Los Zetas. For a few days the group remained hidden to avoid being captured. But on March 22 they began to attack again; in less than three weeks they had already murdered six men. All of them were tortured and, with knives, they carved the letter “Z” on different parts of their bodies. Some were beheaded and their stomachs cut out. The person who did all this was precisely Carolina Rueda, reveal the investigations of the Hidalgo police. Thus the authorities began to identify the members of the group. They located the places where their informants already met.

They even found the house where Carolina lived, in Tula. Only her mother was there. And she took care of the baby that the assassin left behind. In the early hours of Saturday, April 16, 250 SSP agents deployed an operation in restaurants, houses, hotels and nightclubs. Without letting them react, the agents detained 28 Zetas. There, the leader of the plaza, Héctor Hugo Espiricueta Escobar, El Comandante Leo, was arrested along with his girlfriend, La Pantera.
