13 Bone-Chilling Murders Of Mexican Folk Musicians

    Since 1992, dozens of Mexican folk musicians have been executed in cold blood, mainly throughout the northern regions of Mexico.

    Narcocorrido or "drug ballad," is a popular sub-genre of Mexican folk music where song lyrics glorify the real-life exploits of drug traffickers.

    The downside to the narcocorrido is that the musician, while praising some in the drug game, is bound to offend others.

    Here are 13 Mexican folk musicians, most who touched upon the narcocorrido genre, who have died from unnatural causes. It is important to note, that while drug cartels are suspected to be linked to their deaths, no one has been brought to justice:

    1. Rosalino "Chalino" Sanchez

    2. Valentin Elizalde

    3. Tecno Banda Fugaz

    4. Zayda Peña Arjona

    5. Sergio Gomez

    6. José Luis Aquino

    7. Jesús Rey David Alfaro Pulido aka "El Gallito"

    8. Los Herederos de Sinaloa

    9. Sergio Vega "El Shaka"

    10. Fabián Ortega Piñón

    11. La Quinta Banda

    12. Jesus "Chuy" Quintanilla
