Benjamin Arellano Felix 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki

Benjamín Arellano Félix, who worked closely with his brothers, was one of Mexico’s most powerful drug lords and the supplier of one-third of the U.S.’s cocaine.

Benjamín had six brothers:

Francisco Rafael Arellano Félix (born 24 October 1949) – Shot dead by gunmen disguised as clowns at child’s party, on 18 October 2013.
Carlos Arellano Félix (believed to have been born 20 August 1955) is not currently wanted.
Eduardo Arellano Félix (born 11 October 1956) – Captured in 2008.
Ramón Arellano Félix (born 31 August 1964) – Shot dead by police in 2002.
Luis Fernando Arellano Félix (believed to have been born 26 January 1966) is not currently wanted.
Francisco Javier Arellano Félix (born 11 December 1969) – Captured in 2006.

He also has four sisters. Two of them, Alicia and Enedina, are most active in the cartel’s affairs.

Benjamín was first arrested on 18 June 1982, in Downey, California, for receiving 100 kilos of cocaine smuggled through the San Ysidro border.

However, he escaped custody.

The Arellano Félix brothers obtained their first big break in 1989, when they inherited the organization from their uncle, Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, after they showed early promise smuggling consumer electronics over the U.S.–Mexico border.

By 1998, the Arellano brothers had been indicted in the U.S. for drug trafficking, and Ramón had been put on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list.

Despite the brothers’ audacity, they remained untouchable for 13 years.

This was accomplished, in part, with large amounts of cash bribes to Mexican politicians and police commanders, at the cost of an estimated US$1 million per week.

Benjamín Arellano tried to clear his name after the 1993 murder of Cardinal Juan Jesús Posadas Ocampo, in which he had been implicated.

That high-profile assassination brought international attention to his trafficking organization and, although this forced Benjamín to lie low and adopt false names, he continued to live in casual confidence, apparently unafraid of capture.

He had a secret meeting with the Apostolic Nunciature to Mexico, Girolamo Prigione on December 1, 1993.

Another of Benjamin’s brothers, Francisco, was arrested soon afterward on drug charges, and Benjamín, Ramón, and Javier officially became fugitives.

Benjamín Arellano Félix married a woman named Ruth, and they had a daughter, who was named after her mother.

The daughter suffered from unspecified medical problems, and was required to go to San Diego with her mother to meet a specialist.
