Biography

Hugo Mejias was born in 1975 in Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, Mexico to an impoverished family. Mejias sought employment through illicit means, joining Los Zetas in 2003. Mejias became a soldier in the Los Zetas Cartel, and worked as a hitman for the shot-callers of the family. Mejias carried out several assassinations for the Los Zetas, proving himself with the killing of a Sinaloa Cartel member in 2005. He was placed on the wanted list by the Mexican government, and was wanted for US $560,000. 

In 2014, Mejias was tracked down to his native Ciudad Victoria by Mexican Marines. The Marines located him in the apartment of a friend, and he was assassinated by a Marines sniper using an American-made Barret .50 caliber.
