The sadistic boss of one of Venezuela’s most feared kidnap gangs has revealed in harrowing detail how he stalks and seizes his victims, murders those who don’t pay the ransom – and has a network of corrupt officers embedded in the police.
In a chilling interview in the lawless slums of western Caracas, conducted at gunpoint, the kidnap boss told how he has ‘no remorse’ about his reign of terror in the crisis-stricken city.
‘If they don’t pay up after a week,’ he said. ‘We dig a two-metre hole and shoot them in the face with a shotgun so nobody will be able to identify the body. They stay on the missing persons list forever. In this city, I am in charge.’
