'The Last Narc': Ernesto's bodyguard Jorge struggled to redeem himself after murder of Kiki Camarena and others
Even though he did not indulge in the crimes directly, Jorge Godoy nervously admits to the camera that had he protested, he would have been killed too
Amazon Prime's docuseries 'The Last Narc' is a chilling retelling of Mexican-American undercover Agent Kiki Camarena's abduction and murder, which took place 35 years ago, at the hands of powerful and ruthless Mexican drug lords. There's a lot about the murder and torture of the man that had been kept under wraps and well out of sight. However, in the docuseries, the mysteries surrounding the gory tale are slowly peeled off. Former DEA Supervisor and Special Agent Hector Berrellez explained the investigation and how he summoned the team to help him understand what exactly happened to Kiki Camarena.
There is no doubt the Mexican drug lords had insider help, mainly from the DSF (Direccion Federal De Seguridad). What's even more ironic is that the DSF was created by the CIA. By the mid-1980s, many of these agents began to work for the Guadalajara Cartel. For a thorough investigation into these murky depths of the drug mafia, Hector Berrellez revealed how he brought Jorge Godoy, Phil Jordan, Ramón Lira, René Lopez, Manny Madrano, Consuelo 'Chatita' Berrellez, Jaime Kuykendall, Mike Holm and Jim White, and how they all played a role in revealing Kiki's truth to the world. And what's more intriguing is that Lira, Lopez, and Godoy were present where Kiki was tortured for 36 hours and later murdered. In the series, each of them opened up about the gory and horrifying details of what was inflicted on Kiki. Kiki was blindfolded, stripped, and violated, and Lopez was in charge of holding him up again, while the interrogators continued torturing him.
Godoy was not only a part of the Jalisco State Police but also the drug lord Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo's bodyguard. Afraid of being facing arrest and overwhelmed by guilt and hoping for some redemption, Godoy joined Berrellez's team and he spilled the details on how he had been a part of the pre-abduction meetings, and how he had brought Kiki to the house along with Lopez. Godoy had been complicit in several murders during his lifetime, including the kidnapping of innocent American tourists, who had unfortunately wandered into the clutches of the drug lords. In painful detail, Godoy recounted how the women were raped by the Mexican drug dealers in front of their husbands.
Even though he did not indulge in the crimes directly, Godoy nervously admits to the camera that had he protested, he would have been killed too. The bodies were decapitated and dismembered, yet the government still didn't get involved, which made Caro Quintero, the other drug lord, think he could get away with these murders.
At the end of Episode 2, Godoy sends a message for Quintero, Carillo. "You're all f**king a***holes. And I'm ready to die."
