Her closeness to the world of drug trafficking is not only linked to the Guzmán family, since it is presumed that she is the daughter of Raúl Meza Ontiveros, alias M-6, a lieutenant operator of Ismael El Mayo Zambada.

After the arrest of Ovidio Guzmán , son of El Chapo Guzmán , the name of Adriana Meza Torres became relevant again , who was given the nickname of The New Queen of the Sinaloa Cartel , because she is assumed to be the supposed wife of El Raton and successor to Emma Coronel – wife of Joaquín Guzmán Loera and who is facing legal proceedings in the United States – within the criminal group.

Her closeness to the world of drug trafficking is not only linked to the Guzmán family , but the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) announced in 2015 that it is presumed that she is the daughter of Raúl Meza Ontiveros , alias the M-6, a lieutenant operator of Ismael El Mayo Zambada , who was killed during a shootout in Culiacán during the War on Narco in 2007.

Also during this period, in the administration of Felipe Calderón , the death of an alleged brother of Adriana, Raúl Torres Meza , better known in the world of drug trafficking as El Mini-6, was reported, who would have been shot down in Zapopan, Jalisco.

The above information came out during the six-year term of Enrique Peña Nieto , because it was pointed out that the federal government had among its intentions to freeze the bank accounts of Meza Torres, presuming that “he maintained or maintains a sentimental relationship with Ovidio Guzmán López , son of Joaquín Guzmán Loera , alias ‘El Chapo’”, so his profile could serve to divert attention from some criminals.

However, after the Culicanazo in 2019, when El Ratón was arrested for the first time in the administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) , the Mexican authorities announced that Adriana Meza’s accounts were frozen.

In the midst of these investigations, it was revealed that the woman was presumably engaged in agriculture, a situation that raised more suspicions about the real origin of her income, since it was revealed that she maintained an expensive lifestyle.

Despite the data that has been obtained, the defense of the named New Queen of the Sinaloa Cartel has promoted some injunctions to annul the UIF action ; however, these have prospered in different ways, as there is allegedly a lack of tax returns, as well as some cash payments during trips abroad.

However, the Financial Intelligence Unit of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) has pointed to the woman as an alleged lender for the Los Chapitos organization , especially for the activities of Jesús Alfredo and Iván Archivaldo Guzmán Salazar ., as well as Ovidio and Jesús Guzmán López .

“(The actions) constitute warning signs regarding the probability that he is lending names to the criminal group led by Joaquín Guzmán with the purpose of hiding the real owner of the resources that he classifies as illegal.”

In 2017 Meza Torres obtained a first amparo from a federal judge, for her part, in 2018 a Collegiate Court of Sinaloa confirmed the legal action in favor of the citizen; however, the FIU refused to stop the investigations. It was not until 2019 when the accounts were frozen, so in December 2021 the defense appealed the decision and a new protection was granted, which is still under review.

Among the defense arguments in favor of Meza Torres is that there are no indications that link her to the criminal group, therefore the actions violate the right to free development that she should have with her income derived from agricultural activities related to the corn production.

Despite all of the above, in October 2022 it emerged that a judge ordered the resolution of the investigation unit to be rendered insubstantial , in order to analyze whether Adriana Meza should remain on the list of blocked people, because some were shown. evidence -among which checks and delivery certificates stand out- of their work with corn crops between 2012 and 2015.

The name and analysis of the life of Adriana Meza became relevant again after the state of Sinaloa woke up with a violent day, due to burning vehicles, drug blockades, shootings and theft of cars in some points of Culiacán due to the recapture of Ovidio Guzmán.
