Esperanza Gutierrez Rojano, 33, opened fire in a busy Mexico City restaurant this week, killing Ben Suthi, a Tel Aviv native and well-known crime boss, and his bodyguard Alon Azoulay.

According to reports, Rojano was wearing a blonde wig at the time of the shooting, her disguise leading to comparisons with Killing Eve's assassin Villanelle (played by Jodie Comer).

But unlike Villanelle, Rojano was soon caught by local authorities for the hit.

She initially confessed to the crime by claiming that it was revenge for Suthi cheating on her, but later admitted she was hired to carry out the killing.

As quoted by the BBC, Ulises Lara, a spokesperson for prosecutors in Mexico City, told reporters on Thursday: "The passion motive has been discarded.

"The event yesterday lead us to link the events to a settling of scores between criminal groups."

Security footage shows two male accomplices, although police suspect Rojano was working with at least three others. It's yet to be seen whether they will be caught in connection to the crime.

President of Mexico Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who took office in December, has said they are working with Israeli authorities to investigate the incident.

The shooting unfolded in the same week Israeli native, Erez Akrishevsky, was arrested and extradited from Mexico to Israel.

It's not confirmed whether the two cases are linked, but the pair were both prominent in the criminal underworld and had first fled to Mexico together in the early 00s.

Now authorities are trying to figure out the motive of the crimes, with the spokesperson adding that they're treating it as a settling of scores among criminal groups.

"It could be a settling of scores in the Israeli mafia, which is why a complete identification [of the victims] was possible, along with their criminal records," he added.

This is just one of many rising incidents relating to organised crime in the country's capital city, a place that was once deemed one of the safer areas of Mexico.

Statistics show that the national murder tally for this year is on track to overtake last year's number of over 29,000, which is reported to be elevated by increased violence in the city, something President Obrador has vowed to tackle during his time in office.
