About Nazario Moreno González

  • Nazario Moreno González (8 March 1970 – 9 March 2014), commonly referred to by his alias El Chayo ("Nazario" or "The Rosary") and/or El Más Loco ("The Craziest One"), was a Mexican drug lord who headed La Familia Michoacana before heading the Knights Templar Cartel, a drug cartel headquartered in the state of Michoacán.
  • He was one of Mexico's most-wanted drug lords. Very few details are known of Moreno González's early life, but the authorities believe that religion played a major role in his upbringing.
  • Although born in Michoacán, Moreno González moved to the United States as a teenager, but fled back into Mexico about a decade later to avoid prosecution on drug trafficking charges.
  • In 2004, the drug boss Carlos Rosales Mendoza was captured, and Moreno González, alongside José de Jesús Méndez Vargas, took control of La Familia Michoacana.
  • Unlike other traditional drug trafficking organizations in Mexico, his organization also operated like a religious cult, where its own members were given "bibles" with sayings and conduct guidelines.
  • Moreno González reportedly carried out several philanthropic deeds to help the marginalized in Michoacán.
  • Such deeds helped him craft an image of protector, saint, and Christ-like messianic figure among the poor, and gave La Familia Michoacana a level of influence among some natives. The Mexican government reported that Moreno González was killed during a two-day gunfight with the Mexican federal police in his home state in December 2010.
  • After the shootout, however, no body was recovered.
  • Rumors thus persisted that Moreno González was still alive and leading the Knights Templar Cartel, the split-off group of La Familia Michoacana.
  • Four years later, on 9 March 2014, his survival was confirmed.
  • Mexican authorities located him again, this time in the town of Tumbiscatío, Michoacán, and attempted to apprehend him.
  • A gunfight ensued resulting in Moreno González's death.
  • Subsequent forensic examination confirmed his identity.
