Édgar Eusebio Millán Gómez

From Real Life Villains Wiki

Édgar Eusebio Millán Gómez (1967 – 8 May 2008) was a third-ranking member of Mexico's Secretariat of Public Security and acting commissioner of the Federal Preventive Police. Born in Mexico City, he received a law degree from the Universidad del Valle de México. After graduating he started his career in the Mexican Federal Police and received training in several countries. He was an ally of controversial former Secretary of Public Security Genaro García Luna and was accused of corruption and of having links to kidnapping gangs and organized crime.[1]

On May 8, 2008 at age 41, Commander Millán was shot to death at his Mexico City home just after arriving at midnight; he was hit eight times in the chest and once in a hand. He died a few hours later at Metropolitan Hospital.[2][3][4][5] Intelligence officials said it was highly likely that he was killed in retribution for the arrest on January 21 of Alfredo Beltrán Leyva.

His funeral was attended by the highest-ranking officials in Mexico, including President Felipe Calderón and Guillermo Galván Galván, general of the Mexican Army.

In June 2011, a federal judge sentenced his killer, Alejandro Ramirez Baez, to 60 years in prison along with another accomplice. Alejandro Ramirez Baez killed Edgar Gomez on behalf of the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel.
