BREITBART Cartel Reporter Dies in Mexico…

Breitbart News Cartel Reporter Gerry Aranda’s body was discovered in the Pacific Ocean in Chiapas, Mexico, on October 4, 2021. Local authorities believe he drowned while swimming. Aranda was a central figure in Breitbart’s Border and Cartel Chronicles team.

He was in Chiapas investigating the spread of the Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) and the group’s local affiliate, a self-defense organization calling themselves “Los Machetes.” Despite denials from Mexico City, the Machetes use advanced paramilitary tactics and explosives to wage a fierce turf war against allies of the Sinaloa Cartel — key facts revealed by Aranda’s investigative reporting at Breitbart.

Aranda was also investigating the narco-politics behind the Haitian migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico Border, including the involvement of government officials and criminal organizations in control of human smuggling throughout the country.
