Serial Killer Spotlight: Delfina & María de Jesús González

Welcome to a very special edition of the Serial Killer Spotlight. This edition features a serial killing duet; two sisters from Mexico who owned and operated the surprisingly successful “Bordello from Hell”, though really, that’s quite harsh. Mexico’s not quite hell on earth. Maybe it should have just been called “The Bordello from the Really Shitty Part of Mexico”. In either case, I can’t imagine a name like that attracting many customers.

The Bordello... from HELL
Quite frankly, the dripping blood is kind of a turn off.

It’s also a “special edition” because almost no information about the two appear on the internet. Here’s the gist of what you can find out there:

  • The sisters are from Guanajuato, Mexico.
  • The whorehouse’s real name was Rancho El Ángel.
  • The sisters recruited women through help-wanted ads. If the women became too ill, too “damaged” from repeated rapes, lost their appeal, or refused to please customers, the sisters killed them.
  • They also killed customers who came with a lot of cash on hand.
  • On the brothel’s grounds, police found the bodies of 80 women, 11 men, and several fetuses.
  • The sisters were each sentenced to 40 years in prison in 1964.

That’s about it. If anybody finds more information about them on the web, please feel free to leave a link in the comments. Barring that, however, I will proceed to fabricate a story surrounding these two.

It was late 1945. The second World War had just ended, but Mexico was left largely unscarred. In a small, but bustling city some 200 miles north of Mexico City, two sisters were trying hard to make ends meet in a local butcher shop.

(Delfina walks in the butcher shop backroom as María violently hacks away at a side of beef.)
Delfina: María! What are you doing? You have to have surgical precision in order to make the right cuts.
María: Sorry, mi hermana. I’m just so frustrated.
Delfina: Why so?
María: We work so hard for so little at this tiny shop. I know we could do better.
Delfina: Pero, we have no skills other than slaying beasts dead and cutting them to bits.
María: Well, maybe we have some other skills that we just don’t know about yet.
Delfina: That’s stupid. You’re stupid.
María: Whatever, pueta. Oh looky, un cliente!
(Both women rush out of the backroom and into the front of the shop to greet the customer, a homely but well-dressed American man.)
Man: Hey there, ladies, you speaka ingles?
María (wields a butcher’s blade like a deranged maniac): Keep talking to us like that and I’ll cut off your balls, gringo!
Man: Excuse me?
Delfina (sternly, to María): Knock it off or you’ll scare him away, stupid! (Turns to man) You’ll have to excuse mi hermana, she’s diabetic.
Man: Oh, I see.
Delfina: Well, what can we do for you, mister?
Man: Um, I’m looking for sex.
Delfina: Oh, well, uh…
Man: I’ll pay for it if I have to. Are you ladies selling sex here?
Delfina: Well, no, just meat really. Can we interest you in some fine-
María (interrupts Delfina): Hey, uh, yeah; there’s a place down the street. The girls down there will satisfy your needs.
Man: How do I know you’re not just putting me on?
María (seductively): Gringo, I know what you want, and how you want it. (Licks lips) Go get some honey.
Man: SOLD!
(Man walks out.)
Delfina (shouting): And when you’re done, come back for some cold cuts! (To María) You’re something else, mi hermana!
María: Yeah, I guess I can really pimp the ho’s.
Delfina: Wow, you really did have a hidden talent all along!
María: Hey, you’re right! Now you’re stupid!
Delfina: If only there was a way we could make full use of your ability to sell women and my ability to slice open animals with disturbing exactness.
(Both women silently sit for a moment, deep in thought. Suddenly, they simultaneously turn to each other with huge, knowing smiles on their faces. Thus, the deadliest procuresses in the world decided on their most successful and terrifying business endeavor.)

And the rest is history.

  2. I am currently writing a novel about the sisters, and am about to travel to Guanajuato again to do some more research as none is currently available. So you know, I am primarily writing about the sisters as a way to speak out against sexual slavery. I have no intention of exploiting the tragedy of what happened in what is actually a wonderful place, and pretty far from being “the shitty part of Mexico.” Please contact me with any information available at AddamsRobert@yahoo.com

  3. LOL funny story. Well my aunt was one of the dumbasses that answered the “Poquianchis”(as they were known) help wanted ad. In reality it was three sisters, ugly, wild haired hillbilly women who always wore black, were really Catholic and always wore dark veils. The other ones name was Maria Luisa AKA “EVA”. They kidnapped or lured girls from Jalisco and Guanajuato state, poor rural girls (like my aunt, d’oh) with promises of money and good jobs as maids or waitreses in Guadalajara. They had brothels in San Francisco del Rinco, Guanajuato, and nearby Purisima de Bustos. In fact in 2002, crews excavating in Purisima to build new houses found a mass grave with 20 skeletons of men and women, buried there around the 1960’s, presumed to be yet another dumping ground for the Gonzalez Valenzuela sisters. One of the girls ran away and told her mom what happened at Rancho El Angel and they went to the police in the city of Leon and they raided the ranch on January 17, 1964. 91 bodies (plus the 20 found in 2002) were found, the sisters sentenced to 40 years in the squalid Irapuato city jail. Maria de Jesus was the only one who recently got out, a old woman now, who rumor has it, has a vegetable stand at a market somewhere in Leon. Anyone who dares tries to ID her or ask her about her past gets verbally abused by the deranged old woman. Maria Luisa, the oldest, died of cancer I believe and the other one, Delfina, died in November 1984 alone in her cell, eaten by rats. Oh and by the way, Jalisco and Guanajuato ARE shitty, rural states where people do stupid things for money. These three crazy broads, however foul mouthed and country they were, they made lots o’ pesos from 1938, to 1964 when they were locked up. Mayors, councilmen and cops were regulars at their bars and brothels, they paid and paid well. The town authorities were either paid to look the other way or offered a free dirty sanchez or blowjob. Thats how they managed to work undetected for years.
