With her pink AK-47 assault rifle they call her the black widow maker after she allegedly took over the top job at one of Mexico's deadliest drug Mafia gangs.
And although the brunette likes to wear designer clothes and post pictures of herself on twitter mirroring her idol Kim Kardashian, Claudia Ochoa Felix is according to local media every bit as deadly as her black widow namesake.
She is apparently now the leader of the "Los Antrax" hit squad that works for the Mexican Sinaloa cartel which is one of the main sources of heroin in America.
The 27-year-old makes no secret of her glamorous lifestyle, with the numerous pictures she posts on social media. With low-cut dresses and bright red lipstick and a preference for miniskirts the only thing many of the shots have different to any other young woman posting selfies are her snaps of favourite things, like her trademark pink AK-47 assault rifle, or her pet leopard.
The images include pictures of her shopping in luxury boutiques, and even occasionally include shots of her children sometimes lying with hundreds of banknotes surrounding them in the bath or on the bed.
Claudia married a Sinaloa drug trafficker known as 'El Chavo' Felix with whom she had three children - however they later separated.
"Los Antrax" which she is rumoured to lead is the drug cartels elite contract killer squad, that was previously led by her lover Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, 33, who was arrested in January. If there is a dirty job that needs to be sorted out, Los Antrax get the assignment. They also provide the guards that carry out the security for the cartel boss Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, 66.
Initially she was not in the public spotlight, but all that changed with the murder of a young woman, Yurina Castillo Torres, 23, on 7th May, who local media say was killed by a rival gang after she was mistaken for Claudia.
The two young women had apparently looked similar. Since the attack, Claudia has not changed her lifestyle much and can still be seen clubbing in the main discos and nightclubs of Mazatlan, Culiacan and Guadalajara, but this time always surrounded by heavily armed men who protect her.
And despite the fact that a rival gang seems determined to wipe her out in a drugs war that has reportedly cost over 100,000 lives since 2006, she denies any connection to any criminal organisation, saying claims about her are simply "cowardly lies and slander".
