what type of demonic shyt are they into? How Mexican cartels' girl assassins bathe in the blood of their victims and have sex with their corpses WITH her red hair flowing over her shoulders, pretty Juana looks like any other young woman in her 20s – apart from the fact she's holding a machine gun. Though she may have an innocent face, Juana is actually one of the world's most dangerous women - a bloodthirsty assassin who murdered five men and then drank their warm blood before having sex with their decapitated bodies. Juana – known as Le Peque or "the Little One" – is one of the growing number of female assassins involved in Mexico’s brutal drug wars, which have seen 115,000 people die between 2008-2018. Known as Sicarias – meaning “hitwomen” – these deadly killers use their good looks to charm their victims before murdering them in cold blood. Girls as young as seven are kidnapped or forcibly taken from their parents by drug lords and trained to kill, while others are lured in by the glamorous lifestyle flaunted by the millionaire drug traffickers. This week El Chapo’s top killer Claudia Ochoa Felix – dubbed the "Kim Kardashian of organised crime" – was found dead in her lover’s bed from a pulmonary aspiration, which can be caused by choking. Although it is not yet known if she was murdered, many of her contemporaries have been targeted by squads of rival women. But their successors continue to flaunt their bloodthirsty lifestyles on social media, posing with guns, flak jackets and even tigers in a bid to show off their wealth. Claudia is believed to have led the assassin unit of the Sinaloa Cartel, which was headed by Joaquin 'El Chapo' GuzmanCredit: Central European News Inextricable link between sex and death This year, the number of deaths attributed to the drug wars between January and June was recorded at 17,000 - a new record. One assassin, known as La Flaca, was one of three killers who was themselves murdered - their dismembered bodies were found in beer coolers in 2014. Others have found themselves behind bars. The past three years have seen a 400 percent increase in the number of women imprisoned for federal crimes in Mexico. Professor Andrew Chesnut, professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, says there's a growing trend for "young, beautiful and reckless" women lured by the millionaire lifestyle of the drug gangs to be lured into violence. He says:“There’s an inextricable link between sex and death in the culture of these female killers in seeking to be the most desired by the narco men. “They seek also to be the most brutal among their group of peers.” Photojournalist Katie Orlinksy, who spent years documenting the lives of the cartels in Mexico, says the "feminisation of the drug war" is a recent trend, fuelled by the mass murder of men, leaving partners widowed, and the lack of opportunity for young girls.
