Claudia Ochoa Felix likes to wear designer clothes and post glamorous selfies on Twitter but according to local media she is very bit as deadly as her black widow namesake.
The 27-year-old makes no secret of her luxurious lifestyle. She sports low-cut designer dresses and bright lipstick in the many photos she posts on her social media sites.
The only thing that separates her from being like any other young woman is her trademark pink AK-47 assault rifle and her pet leopard.
Her photos include pictures of her shopping in luxury boutiques and occasionally snaps of her children, sometimes lying with hundreds of banknotes surrounding them in the bath or on the bed.
Felix is apparently now the leader of the “Los Antrax” hit squad that works for the Mexican Sinaloa cartel – which is one of the main sources of heroin in America.
She married a Sinaloa drug trafficker known as ‘El Chavo’ Felix with whom she had three children – however they later separated.
“Los Antrax” which she is rumoured to lead is the drug cartels elite contract killer squad, that was previously led by her lover Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, 33, who was arrested in January.
If there is a dirty job that needs to be sorted out, Los Antrax get the assignment.
They also provide the guards that carry out the security for the cartel boss Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, 66.
Initially she was not in the public spotlight, but all that changed with the murder of a young woman, Yurina Castillo Torres, 23, who local media say was killed by a rival gang after she was mistaken for Claudia.
Since the attack Claudia has not changed her lifestyle much and can still be seen clubbing in the main nightclubs of Mazatlan, Culiacan and Guadalajara, but this time always surrounded by heavily armed men who protect her.
Despite the fact that a rival gang seems determined to wipe her out in a drugs war that has reportedly cost over 100,000 lives since 2006, she denies any connection to any criminal organization, saying claims about her are simply “cowardly lies and slander”.
