A Kim Kardashian lookalike is the alleged new leader of an elite Mexican hit squad, “Los Antrax,” which carries out executions on behalf of the Sinaloa drug cartel.
Claudia Ochoa Felix, nicknamed The Empress of Antrax, posts pictures of her lavish lifestyle on social media holding a signature pink AK-47, posing with a leopard, and walking around in tight outfits and swimsuits, the Daily Mail reported.
Her photos also include shopping in luxury stores and shots of her children, sometimes lying with hundreds of banknotes surrounding them in the bath or on the bed.
The 27-year-old allegedly took over Los Antrax after her former lover and leader of the gang, Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, also known as El Chino Antrax, was arrested in Amsterdam in January.
According to the International Business Times, the Excelsior newspaper claimed Felix escaped an assassination attempt in May, when a 23-year-old woman who looked like her and lived in the same area was shot dead.
She continues to go clubbing and hangs out in the nightclubs of Mazatlan, Culiacan and Guadalajara despite the attack, this time surrounded by heavily armed bodyguards.
Despite the attempt, Felix denies any connection to any criminal organization, saying claims about her as “cowardly lies and slander.”
The Daily Mail reports that U.S. intelligence sources believe the Sinaloa cartel is responsible for much of the heroin smuggled into America, and have dubbed them "the most powerful drug trafficking organization in the world.”
Mexico’s drug war has been going on since 2006, costing an estimated 100,000 lives as gangs fight over territory and carry out revenge killings.
