Tijuana Drug Cartel Hitman Describes Life As A Professional Killer In New Book

Everyone KNOWS that I live for a redemption story, so much so that I am working on my own masterpiece redemption story entitled, “Gangster Girls: The Last Girl Standing” in which I hope to release sooner than later.

Anyhow, the following article was posted on Daily Mail UK and gives some insight into the life of Martin Corona, a former hitman for the Tijauna drug cartel.

Corona, who has admitted to killing 8 people during his time in the cartel says that it was when he was ordered to murder two women (with a child in the car) that he decided to walk away from the lifestyle. For good.

Cartel

Martin Corona was a professional killer working for the feared Mexican Cartel leader Ramon Arellano-Felix.

Racking up a total of eight kills in his criminal career, he earned himself 25 years in prison back in 2001.

The killer, now 58, opened up about how he handled his killings and his life as a gun for hire.

Fighting a drug war which engulfed the southern part of California, he claims to killed a member of El Chapo’s drug cartel.

He described being a “lost soul” who found acceptance in the world of paid for murder and gangs.

Corona revealed he is “not proud” of what he has done and said he finds it “humiliating” to look himself in the mirror.

Working as enforcer of drug-pushers, he gunned down two women sitting in a car who were suspected of snitching.

However he discovered one of their seven-year-old daughters sitting in the back seat.

The killer said it was this moment which made him give up his life as a hitman.

He described telling himself “its an ugly business, but its a business” before his first assassination – when he was ordered to kill two members of a rival gang.

Corona – who cannot be pictured for his own safety – is now free from prison and working as a construction worker, trying to escape his brutal past.

Corona’s descent into crime began at age 12, getting into drugs, and discovering the man he thought was his father wasn’t.

He told the New York Post:

 I was a lost soul. These people accepted me. They treated me with respect, and at the time, it seemed like admiration and love.

I’m not proud of my past.

It’s really humiliating waking up and looking at yourself in the mirror knowing the things you’ve done.

His story is being told in new book Confessions of a Cartel Hit Man which is out on July 25.

Sidenote: Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me and my team about casting for the series set to premier on the STARZ network. Right now we’re playing the waiting game. It takes a significant amount of time to get the business side secured for a project of this magnitude. Once the script is written, casting is the next phase.

Back in December, I tweeted 50 to see if I could get any information about the casting calls. No updates were provided until about 6 months later.

At any rate, I am just thrilled to see the project moving forward.

Keep checking back in to The Pen Hustler for casting info as it becomes available. I will do my best to get it out there as soon as humanly possible.

Who do YOU think should portray Big Meech and his brother in the series?

If you are interested in casting for the series, please send me your info along with any pics or headshots and I will feature you on the site.

You never know, you could land you the role!

Flashback: BMF Boss Big Meech Says He Made Billions In The Dope Game

meech1In 2011, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory spoke exclusively with author Cavario Here about his past life as one of the biggest drug dealers to ever “move dat dope.”

In the interview below, Big Meech calls in from prison to discuss his past dealings and how he touched billions of dollars as the head honcho of the Black Mafia Family. At the time of his indictment and arrest, he had accumulated an estimated worth of $270 million.

 

“Every entertainer or athlete wants to live like they’re selling kilos…Everybody wants to live like they’re selling dope. It’s the American dream.”

In the interview, the former drug kingpin paints a vivid picture of his extreme wealth:

“If you told them that a black man was living like that, doing what I was doing, they’d think you was lying,” he says. “No one was more liquid than me. I could grab a million dollars, throw it out the car, grab a million more no problem.”
