A hitwoman for Los Zetas, one of Mexico’s most notorious and dangerous cartels, made a gruesome confession from her jail cell in California. She says she has sex with beheaded corpses and drinks their blood.

28-year-old Juana, aka “La Peque” or “Little One,” also said, “Ever since I was a little girl, I was a rebel, and then became a drug addict and an alcoholic.”


She got pregnant at 15 by a 35-year-old man, and to support her child, she worked as a prostitute. That is, until she entered the world of the cartels.

She says she stared as a “halconeo” or a lookout.

Her job was to stand at a lookout post for eight hours at a time. If she ever failed at her duties, she says, she was tied up and fed one taco a day.


During her employment for the cartel, she was part of and witnessed many horrifying scenes. One such incident was a man’s head being destroyed with a mace.

“I remember feeling sad and thinking I didn’t want to end up like that,” she said.

She did admit, however, that her penchant for blood didn’t last long.


She said she started to “feel excited by it, rubbing myself in it and bathing in it after killing a victim. I even drank it when it was still warm,” she claims.

News and law enforcement agencies say that Juana implied that she “had sex with the cadavers of those decapitated, using the severed heads, as well as the rest of their bodies, to pleasure herself”.

She still awaits her sentence.
