Live fast, die young ….and leave a beautiful corpse
The image above made the social
media rounds in the past few days, with the claim it’s a newly discovered photo. The image is of ‘Los Ántrax’
members; El Frankie, Chino Ántrax’
and El Pancho Arce.
However, after conducting image
searches I found that the photo appears to have been first posted in 2018, then
forgotten. However old it is, it may the first time you have seen it.
I was struck how young Chino is,
he appears 18 or so.
By the end of 2011 two in the
image were dead, then in May 2020 Chino was the third.
Pancho Arce El 4
On November 1, 2011, an armed

those present to throw themselves on the ground, they went directly for Arce

10 days after fleeing the U.S.
while on ‘supervised release’ in San Diego, the body of ‘El Chino Ántrax’ was discovered inside a BMW X5 SUV in a Culiacán community. The remains of his
sister and brother-in-law were also found.
Chino Antrax is the body wrapped “encobijado.”
Franklin ‘El Frankie’ Olguín ‘El Dos’
“El Frankie” was killed by the Mexican Army in May 2011.
There are multiple accounts of his death by the military.
What is agreed upon is that Franklin Olguín Velázquez aka “El
Frankie” or “El Dos”, along with Humberto Corona Guillén aka “El Chuve” and
Pedro Valenzuela, the three members of “Los
Antrax” were together when they met their demise.
The “official” report says they were killed in a
