in Michoacán, during the past two years, Enrique ‘Kike’ Plancarte has increased his level of violence, in contrast to his speeches about the importance of peace. He claims he often violence to kill as divine punishment.
According to information from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Plancarte Solis lives in hiding, using multiple telephones and radios to avoid being located traveling with a very small escort group.
Although he claims to be a very religious man, Plancarte is responsible for a large amount of violence. In 2014, in just one week Plancarte managed to terrorize much of Tierra Caliente in Michoacan. To avoid capture, he fled with the arrival of the federal forces. Treasury Department has included his family in it in its blacklist and will shortly be releasing to authorities the names of their children Melissa, Jazeth Jr. and Enrique Plancarte. The feds warn that they will be using resources to investigate the organization of the Knights Templar with the warning they will prosecute those who do business with them as well.
