Carrillo was part of the Guadalajara Cartel, sent Ojinaga, Chihuahua to oversee his uncle's cocaine shipments, and to learn about border operations from Pablo Acosta Villarreal "El zorro de Ojinaga" As the top drug trafficker in Mexico, Carrillo was transporting four times more cocaine to the U.S. than any other trafficker in the world, building a fortune of over $25 billion U.S. dollars.
He was called "El Senor de los Cielos" (The Lord of the Skies) for his pioneering use of over 27 private Boeing 727 jet airliners to transport Colombian cocaine to municipal airports and airstrips around Mexico. In the months before his death, Carrillo was shipping multi-ton shipments directly into Manhattan. Credited by anti-drug agents as being one of the most low-key, sophisticated, and diplomatic of Mexico's cartel chiefs, Amado Carrillo Fuentes was the largest cocaine smuggler the world has ever seen.
ABOUT AMADO CARRILLO FUENTES: "Born in Guamuchilito, Navolato Sinaloa, Carrillo was a Mexican drug lord who seized control of the Juarez Cartel after assassinating his boss Rafael Aguilar Guajardo. Amado Carrillo became known as "El Senor de Los Cielos" (Lord of the Skies) because of the large fleet of jets he used to transport drugs. He was also known for laundering over $20 million via Colombia to finance his huge fleet of planes. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration described Carrillo as the most powerful drug trafficker of his era.
He died in a Mexican hospital after undergoing extensive plastic surgery to change his appearance. In his final days Carrillo was being tracked by Mexican and U.S. authorities." (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
