A brutal Mexican cartel boss has been arrested after her hitman lover turned her over to authorities. Melissa ‘La China’ Calderon is one of the most notorious mob bosses in the country, leading her own hit squad. Her group was responsible for a huge rise in violence in the Baja California area of the country.
The arrest, which occurred last week, was ordered after her hitman lover, and second-in-command, Pedro ‘El Chino’ Gomez gave information to Mexican police, in exchange for a reduced sentence. He labelled her “maniacal” and a “control freak.”
Bizarrely, Calderon was recently the subject of a nationwide Mexican hit “En La sierra Y La Ciudad.” The song praised the mobster lifestyle as well as a high ranking female cartel member.
