8. Jesus Ernesto Chavez
Once a hitman for Barrio Azteca gang, Jesus Ernest Chavez now works with police and is testifying against the head of his former gang, Arturo Gallegos Castrellon. Shockingly, he admitted to killing over 800 people. He was a contract killer and all were ordered by Castrellon.
He was forced to murder 8 or more people a day to ensure the city was scared. He often used horrible methods to impress him. Castrellon is being tried for the murders of 2 employees of the U.S. consulate and a Mexican citizen that he committed while they were driving.
Killing so many people is what puts him on the list, even though he’s stopped. Hopefully he will stay on the right side of the law from now on.
