Instagram Star Gunned Down In Mexican Gun Battle

She also happened to be a cartel boss and assassin...
INSTAGRAM star Maria Guadalupe Lopez Esquivel dubbed “La Catrina” was shot dead during a gun battle with Mexican police and the army who surrounded the compound where she ran a cartel hit squad.

Images from a body cam taken during the raid show her looking terrified as she collapses behind a wall after a bullet to the neck during the shootout. According to the Sun, her face and body are covered in blood as she reaches up to the camera in the images which can not be published here.

In the footage, Maria can be seen fighting for air as a cop tries to calm her down and assure her that a helicopter would take her to hospital.

The officer says: “Calm down, kid. The helicopter is coming for you. It is coming now, easy, easy, you are going to be okay. Try to hang on.”

However, only minutes later Maria died after suffering a fatal gunshot wound according to local media.

Maria was suspected of being one of the ringleaders Jasilico's feared New Generation Cartel (CJNG) after she fell in love with another leader Miguel “EL M2” Fernandez.

The daughter of a livestock trader and a housewife, López was reportedly a good student in her younger years in Tepalcatepec before developing a keener interest in attending parties rather than school.

“She started hanging out with gangsters and got lost in drugs,” one local resident told the newspaper El Universal.

Another resident said she moved in with a CJNG member in 2017, stating that “she met a criminal a**hole and he took her to live in Aguililla, where she started to work for M2”.

El M2 was allegedly also arrested during the raid that took place last Friday.

The CJNG are headed by Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes ("El Mencho"), one of Mexico's most-wanted drug lords and are the second most powerful cartel in Mexico.

Maria rose through the ranks quickly in the cartel with the assistance of boyfriend “E1 M2”, and depicted their seemingly glamorous lifestyle on social media for all to see.

The 21-year-old cartel boss was hugely popular on Instagram by posting semi-naked photos alongside guns.

She was often in charge of assassinations, extortion, and kidnappings during her time in the gang.

Women have sometimes occupied high-level positions as money launderers in drug cartels in the past, but it is rare for them to command or coordinate hit squads.

I could be the catalyst that sparks the revolution
I could be an inmate in a long-term institution
I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die
I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by
What a waste...

In this case she has no one to blame but herself.

Whats with the pic of the chick sitting next the house all bloodied up? Is that her, wounded before she croaked?

Ah right! Guess it makes sense if you read the text part!

What a waste of good software.

And Twitter and Facebook are pretty stupid too.

It's all fun and games until you get shot in the neck.
