Who Is QBA? Mexican Rapper Admits Dissolving Missing Students' Bodies In Acid

Mexican rapper Christian Omar Palma Gutierrez, also known as "QBA", confessed to dissolving the victims' bodies in acid as part of his work for the Jalisco New Generation drug cartel. Earlier accounts state that the three students were last seen in Tonala after their auto broke down.

According to NY Daily News, the rapper and YouTube star, whose real name is Christian Omar Palma Gutierrez, was taken into custody along with another suspect where he shared details of the gruesome deaths of Salomon Gastelum, Daniel Diaz, and Marco Avalos. Roughly six people then kidnapped the young students, who CJNG confused for members of a rival gang. Chief investigator Lizette Torres notes how Gutierrez "participated in three other previous murders".

Gutierrez admitted that a friend recruited him three months ago to work for the Jalisco New Generation drug cartel, and that he had received 3,000 pesos - almost $159 - a week.

QBA enjoyed a sizable online following via his social media channels where he had 125k subscribers on YouTube and 140K Facebook followers.

In songs with titles such as "Death Has No Schedule", Gutierrez sings about violence, weapons and drugs, nearly always in a threatening tone.

Gutierrez's most recent video was "Humildemente Bandido", or "Humble Bandit", posted in February.

Juan Martin Perez, the director of a non-governmental organization called Rights to Childhood, called youth disappearance an "epidemic" - contending that organized crime, lack of protection by the government, corruption and authorities' complicity with criminal groups in some locations are to blame.

Gutierrez and another man will be charged with aggravated kidnapping. Oscar Juarez, a student leader at a university in the city told the newspaper: "We demand justice, not only for our three colleagues but for the thousands missing".

The three victims had unknowingly filmed a school project in a former hangout for the Nueva Plaza cartel, which eventually led to their abduction and the macabre events that followed.
