Quebecer with close ties to Hells Angels killed in Mexico

The Montreal Gazette is reporting that "A 37-year-old man with close ties to the Hells Angels in Quebec was gunned down in Mexico on Wednesday. Two Mexican media websites reported that Samy Tamouro was killed at a gym in Cancun. Tamouro was charged in 2016 after a drug trafficker arrested in Project Magot-Mastiff turned informant and provided evidence linking Tamouro to Hells Angels based in Quebec."

"According to La Presse, Tamouro also has ties to Frédérick Silva, the hit man who became an informant during the summer of 2022. Last week, the Sûreté du Québec and Montreal police carried out a series of search warrants based on an ongoing investigation that started after Silva became an informant. Police sources have told the Montreal Gazette in recent months that some well-known organized crime figures left Quebec after Silva was taken away from a federal penitentiary by helicopter and placed under police protection."

The Daily Mail is reporting that "A Canadian was executed during the middle of a workout at a gym in the Mexican resort city of Cancún. Samy Tamouro, 37, was shot in the head by a man at Total Sports Club on Wednesday. The gunman was seen boarding a motorcycle with another man and escaping." They posted a picture of the gunman on the back of a bike.
"Tamouro showed vital signs as he was placed on a stretcher and rushed in an ambulance to Galenia Hospital. However, staff declined to provide him medical attention, Mexican newspaper Excelsior reported. The reasons for his denial of treatment were not specified. He was then taken to a government-operated hospital and died before he arrived." That is really messed up. I don't care who he was. He is survived by a wife and two children as well as both his parents. Capping people before Christmas is low life. We really need to rise above that. Do unto others yo.
Info Bae is reporting that "During the early hours of December 20, the Attorney General's Office of the State of Quintana Roo confirmed the capture of two possible people involved in the homicide of Samy Tamouro , who was murdered in a shopping plaza in Cancún. These are Luis Felipe N and Juan Pablo N." The Riviera Maya News is confirming the arrest.


  1. Why are their eyes blurred out so that you can't recognize them?

    1. I assume it's a Mexican rule implying innocent until proven guilty.

    2. That is what I thought. I have a few opinions on it.

    3. Mexico blurs the faces of arrested suspects and doesn't release last names, that's why you usually see an "n" after their first names.
