From what we garnered, he was performing on stage when he received a letter containing death threats. Following this, he hurriedly left the Rey Del Corrido concert in Sinaloa, Mexico to find safety alongside his two brothers, his cousins, and several young ladies. Unfortunately, they drove into the path of their killers who disguised themselves as the state police and asked them to pull over.
For some reason, Chalino was convinced to join them in their vehicles while other cars would drive behind and that was the last time he was seen alive. Chalino’s death also brought an end to his 9 years of marriage to Marisela Velllejos.
