The leader of a brutal drug cartel faction operating in Mexico City, “The Hand With Eyes”, has been captured and arrested for being involved in the killings of 600 individuals.

36 year-old Oscar Osvaldo Garcia Montoya was arrested in Mexico City for leading “The Hand with Eyes” gang whose trademark was decapitations.  The former Mexican marine deserter worked for major Mexican cartels until forming his own group.

His nickname is “El Compayito” which represents the beloved Mexican hand puppet that covers his eye with one hand and the cartel itself is named after the puppet.  The reality is that Garcia Montoya and his gang have acknowledged ordering 300 murders and carrying out another 300 murders.
