Paz, 66, according to the ruling, led the drug gang that was disrupted in 2018 by the Federal Police and at the same time he was the father of Martín “Fantasma” Paz, who was assassinated in September 2012, in an act adjudicated to the “Los Monos” gang.

Paz was syndicated as an organizer and financier of the gang, in addition to incurring in possession of narcotic drugs for marketing purposes. In the investigation, he was accused of buying real estate to launder drug money.

Likewise, it was pointed out that he was referred to as “The boss”, “The uncle” or “The Lord of the Skies” in direct allusion to a Mexican drug lord.
