Galilea Montijo allegedly took half of drug lord Arturo Beltran Leyva’s monthly earnings

Journalist Anabel Hernandez reveals Galilea Montijo's alleged financial ties to drug lord Arturo Beltran Leyva.

In her newly released book, journalist Anabel Hernandez unveils a surprising connection between the renowned 50-year-old personality, Galilea Montijo and the late drug lord Arturo Beltran Leyva. The revelations, which have been a cause for much buzz and speculation, shed light on the financial dynamics and potential discord between Leyva and his hitmen.

Hernandez’s recent conversation with the media outlet, Chisme No Like, brought to light Montijo’s role as a potential catalyst for internal disputes within Leyva’s criminal network. The core of the contention? The amount of money Montijo was allegedly receiving from the drug lord.

“When Arturo Beltrán Leyva’s hitmen discovered the sum he was remitting to Galilea Montijo, it caused a significant upheaval,” Hernandez shared. To them, Montijo’s compensation seemed excessive, especially considering she wasn’t in a role that entailed “saving his life.”

Unraveling the financial web

Hernandez, 52, who recently launched ‘Las señoras del narco: Amar en el infierno,’ divulges that Montijo was allegedly pocketing a staggering 200 thousand dollars (or 3 million 407 thousand 630 pesos) monthly from Leyva. To put that into perspective, it is purported that the drug trafficker’s monthly income was approximately 400 thousand dollars or 6 million 815 thousand 20 pesos. This suggests that Montijo was taking half of Leyva’s monthly earnings.

Moreover, Hernandez hinted at the possibility of this figure being just the tip of the iceberg, implying Montijo’s income might have surged further over time.

The underlying discord

Despite Montijo’s significant financial ties with the drug lord, Hernandez did not definitively state the aftermath of the hitmen’s discontent. It remains unclear whether their grievances led to any major confrontations or changes in the dynamics within Leyva’s operation.

However, it is undeniable that Montijo’s involvement with Leyva and his organization has added another layer of intrigue and complexity to the narco-world narratives.
