A witness in El Chapo’ Guzman’s trial stated that Guzman’s most trusted hitmen had kept a murder room featured a drain in the floor to expedite clean-up following messy executions. Galvan also said that the house was sound-proofed “so no noise comes out” and that he had personally witnessed a “drainage outlet” on the floor of the creepy white room.
“He took me once to a house, where the floor was just white, tiled,” cartel snitch Edgar Galvan said of killer Antonio “Jaguar” Marrufo. “That’s where he killed people.” Galvan solemnly told jurors that “in that house, no one comes out”
Details of the slaughterhouse are under investigation as the location or how many people had met their ends there wasn’t clear. Galvan was merely a cabbie who entered into the world of drug trafficking shortly after his divorce and started hanging out in discotheques.
Galvan partied in the clubs back in 2007 and met Marrufo who was initially just a “party friend” but as he got involved with him he worked under him and moved to El Paso in Texas and primarily controlled Juarez for El Chapo’s Sinaloa Cartel.
Galvan ran guns along the border and was “cleaning” (as in kill people) rival cartels so that Guzman could establish control over the border crossings. Galvan testified about the guns that were used as a part of the murder plot for Marrufo but states he never personally pulled the trigger.
He also stated that until his recent testimony he never met Guzman.
Galvan was arrested in 2011 for possession of narcotics and firearms for which he is serving a 24-year sentence, 8 of which he has completed. Marrufo has also been jailed when El Paso police raided the home of an ally who was storing 40 AK 47s, a grenade launcher, bulletproof vests and ammo for the cartel.
Guzman has been arrested since and been charged to a 17 count indictment that includes possession of firearms, conspiracy to commit murder and importing as well as distributing cocaine.
