Eligio Carillo Galvez

Head of the Tejeda Cartel


38 years old, Eligio Galvez acquired his status by murdering his superiors. He started out as a member of a youth gang in Monterrey. He started with mugging and petty larceny, but kept moving up the ladder.

There was a short period of peace between the three cartels for a few years, which brought a brief respite to the violence. Galvez’s ascent seems to have ended that; the recent spike in violence happened about the same time he is believed to have taken charge.
