Imprisoned for her shocking crimes in Mexico’s infamous Zetas drug cartel, the 28-year-old revealed what turned her to a life of violence.
She said: “Ever since I was a little girl I was a rebel, and then became a drug addict and alcoholic.”
Born in the state of Hidalgo, near Mexico city, Juana said she had a baby at the tender age of 15 by a man 20 years her senior.
And in order to support her child, the then-teenager became a prostitute on the crime ridden Mexican streets.
She then became a “haconeo” – a spy for the drug gangs tasked with looking out for police or army patrols during gruelling eight hour shifts.
Juana said that if she made a mistake, her gangster bosses would tie her up for a week as punishment – feeding her one taco per day to keep her alive.
It was during this time in the cartel that she first witnessed the shocking violence which would eventually define her life – when a man’s head was smashed open with a medieval mace in front of her.
Juana confessed to having sex with dead bodies
She said: “I remember feeling sad and thinking that I did not want to end up like that.”
But while speaking to the Mexican media, Jauna confessed that she started to get turned on by the sight of blood saying she would “feel excited by it, rubbing myself in it and bathing in it after killing a victim and I even drank it when it was still warm.”
According to reports, the former cartel member said she “had sex with the cadavers of those decapitated, using the severed heads as well as the rest of their bodies to pleasure herself.”
The kinky criminal is reportedly still awaiting sentencing.
