This is the moment helium balloons are released during the funeral of one of El Chapo’s top assassins dubbed the ‘Kim Kardashian of crime’.
Claudia Ochoa Felix, also known locally as ‘Emperatriz de Los Antrax’ (‘Anthrax Empress’), was reportedly found dead on 14th September in an apartment in the city of Culiacan in the north-western Mexican state of Sinaloa after a night out on the town.
She is believed to have led the assassin unit of the Sinaloa Cartel, which was headed by Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman before his extradition to the US.
Reports said the 35-year-old brunette died during the night of a suspected pulmonary aspiration and the authorities consider the incident accidental. Aspiration occurs when someone breaths foreign objects such as fluids into their lungs, and it can cause choking and death.
Her lavish funeral was held in the city of Culiacan where she was from and many attendees shared images of the formal farewell.
The coffin of the beautiful cartel member, dubbed the ‘Kim Kardashian of organised crime’, was surrounded by flower- and star-shaped balloons.
The video shows the moment where mourners release the helium balloons in to the sky.
According to local media, the curvy brunette was romantically linked to Jose Rodrigo Arechiga, better known as ‘El Chino Antrax’ (‘The Chinese Anthrax’), who headed the Anthrax gang that is connected to the Sinaloa Cartel before his imprisonment.
Reports also said that she was married to a drug trafficker within the Sinaloa Cartel nicknamed ‘El Chavo Felix’ who she had three children with.
She often shared saucy photos of herself posing with machine guns or visiting luxurious destinations on social media.
Ochoa Felix left behind three children.
