Mexico's Female Drug Assassin Says She Drinks Blood Of Victims
These 'Sicarias' - which means 'hitwomen' - use their good looks and charm to trick victims in order to kill them.
One of the famous - or should that be infamous - faces of this bloody line of work, a former employee of El Chapo called Claudia Ochoa Felix, dubbed 'the Kim Kardashian of organised crime' was found dead earlier this week.
While it's not clear whether she was murdered or not, it certainly isn't off the table. However, the women that remain aren't above flaunting the fruits of their labours on social media.
Despite looking like a normal 20-something woman, Juana - seen in one photograph holding a machine gun - is in fact a bloodthirsty killer.
So bloodthirsty, in fact, the she is rumoured to have killed five men before drinking their blood warm and having sex with their headless corpses.
She's known as 'Le Peque' or 'the Little One' and she's just one small part of the ever-escalating drug wars in Mexico that have so far reportedly claimed as many as 115,000 lives in just over 10 years.
Juana, and other women in her profession, can often be seen modelling machine guns, flak jackets, and other trappings of the trade. Even a tiger, on occasion.
The lifestyle seems to be what attracts people to this kind of work. Live like a millionaire, commit atrocities, that old chestnut.
There's a huge chance of death, of course, but that doesn't seem to stop many.
Juana was eventually captured in 2016 and has since written a blog from her jail cell.
In that she said: "Ever since I was a little girl I was a rebel, and then became a drug addict and an alcoholic."
Addicted to drugs and working in prostitution to feed and clothe her young daughter, she eventually became a top killer and, with it, the blood lust increased.
She told Denuncias that she began to 'feel excited by it [blood], rubbing myself in it and bathing in it after killing a victim'.
"I even drank it when it was still warm."
That site then went on to say that she 'insinuated' that she had 'had sex with the cadavers of those decapitated, using the severed heads as well as the rest of their bodies to pleasure herself'.
