Suads Bio is a brief over view of my life since the age of ten. I have highlighted my life as I do in the videos to explain important events that occured as I was growing up. There is much more both during these times and my life for the last two years. I hope that growing up as a young girl and now as a young woman and making the decisions i had to make to which I am proud, I can show others that sometimes you have to make hard choices. Only you can make those choices and only you are responcible for them.

Born April 26 1984
Mother Yelba Marina Reyes. A former Sandinistas fighter in Nicaragua. Suad was named for Yelba’s mentor Suad Marco a communist Palestianian fighter and trainer married to Commandant Marco one of Ortaga’s commanders. Yelba promised to name her first born daughter after her mentor. Suad Marco’s book verifies this.
Father unknown to Suad murdered by Manual Sanchez
Sister Shirley Guadalupe Leija
Moved to Los Angeles. Santa Monica with mother, father. Lived together with Pedro Castorena and Julieta de Leon Trejo, wife of Pedro. During this time both Manual and Pedro started the illegal document business in Los Angeles with the permission of Manual father Navidad and Pedro’s father Alfonso in Mexico. Suad spent a lot of time living at her mother’s aunt home while in Los Angeles.
In 1991 mother picked Suad up at her aunts on a motorcycle and went to the airport and flew to Chicago. Suad later found out that Manuel was arrested in Los Angeles and released. They where picked up by a aunt named Esmeralda who was married to Pedro leija and taken to a apt. There was Suads father, Pedro Castorena, his wife and Suads sister Shirley who was around one year old. Pedro and wife are god parents to Shirley, Manuel and Yelba are god parents to Pedro's son Christian. Suads other Uncles Pedro Leija Sanchez and Julio where in jail in Chicago at this time.
In the beginning they some days had only enough money to eat hamburgers. Business grew, Suad went to catholic school and grew up with polish bodyguards named Grodski and Scholisky who looked after her and hung out at a Chinese laundry where business was done. Money was counted at the house by Pedro Castorena and Manuel Leija daily and put into envelopes. Amounts differed from one thousand to five thousand, Suads job was to put the money in the envelopes and was paid 50.00 dollars. During these years Manuel because of coke and drinking abused Suads mother and at different times punched Suad breaking her nose. The organization expanded to Denver, Las Vegas, New York ,Atlanta and other cities using only members of the both families. All members have different cities and their relatives have different areas of the cities to operate and take turns like shift work leaving every three months so another members can come and make their money. A percent is paid to the main families. There are many stories, Suad has reference all of the above. In 1996 winter time getting ready for school at 7am the door was broke down by around 15 FBI agents. Suad, sister and mother where taken to the federal building in Chicago and questioned. Both girls threatened to be put in homes and separated if they did not say where their father was. Suad did not know where he was as she later found out he left after finding out a nephew and a right hand of manual gave him up. The same night all where released and picked by a bodyguard named Bro and taken back to the apt to pack. At midnight they went to the garage in the basement where three white vans where waiting. Suad, mother, sister in one van driven by Bro the other van driven by Grodski the other van by Yiyo the nephew that was thought to have caused the problem. All left at the same time in different directions. Suad was driven almost to the Mexican boarder where they changed vans. Bros van went back to Chicago Suad and family went with the Yiyo van and crossed into Mexico meeting up with Manuel and Pedro Castroena in Monterey Mexico. They moved to Mexico City to the family compound.
Lived in Mexico City. Manuel traveled back and forth to the US to expand his business with Pedro Castroena.
Mother moved Suad to Nicaragua to live with mother’s aunt as Manuel was starting to look at Suad as a potential girlfriend. Mother and sister lived in Mexico and Chicago, than mother and sister returned to Nicaragua after Manuel took the mother to an isolated area and was going to kill her blaming the problem in Chicago with the FBI on her, Pedro talked Manuel into sending her to Nicaragua and not shooting her. For the next years Suad talked with Manuel or Gradski a couple of times a month in order to receive money. Money was sent twice a month about 4-5 thousand per month. Money was send by western union, Fedex or in magazines in different pages. The money was sent to Suad because the mother was drinking more and more and not investing it right. The stores the mother opened Suad had to participate in the negotiation. During this time the Uncle Pedro was arrested in the United States and sent to prison for four years for document fraud. Over the following years Suad only saw the Mexican family at Christmas but talked with most members weekly.
Met John Doe in a restaurant in Managua Nicaragua. Suad was a third year student at the university at this time. John Doe had several business in central America and traveled back and forth to Miami from Nicaragua. Suad told John Doe a little of the family business John showing little interest except in such a poor country how does a young girl have so much money. Over time Suad learned that John Doe did work for the United States. He did seem to know that Suads mother was at times doing some illegal business but did not care. In 2005 John Doe expanded business to Mexico starting in Guadalajara. Suads Uncle Julio a member of the federals was going to go to Nicaragua and move both Suad and her sister to Mexico. Before this could happen Julio had to go to Chicago. There had been a theift at one of the document mills where documents where made and special computer programs where stolen. In May my sister had a sweet 15 party in Managua John Doe met my grandmother and grandfather and aunt. This was told to Manuel in Chicago where several threatening phone calls where made threatening to kill John Doe. Suad moved to Mexico City with John Doe until things changed in Nov. 2005.
Suad moved to Mexico City and had interaction with her family. In the middle of Nov. Suad received a phone call from her aunt Edith, her grandfather and mother that her father had been arrested in Chicago and was their anything John Doe could do to help. Joe Doe asked to communicate with Manuels new wife in Chicago for more details. At this time John Doe revealed to Suad that he was active with a United States agency. John advised he could help but needed more info on the family and the arrest. John had written a paper on a plan to identify terrorist both crossing the border and those already in country. This paper was written in 2003 and included as an addendum to a report on an operation that had taken place in Costa Rica and Cuba. [See attached]. At the time what was written was just an idea. As John had a complete picture of the families business an opportunity was present to implement the plan or parts of it. A perfect opportunity. Suads grandfather Natividad and Uncle Juan Luis sat with John and Suad in Mexico City and it was agreed to find a way to get Manuel out of jail. They did not know anything aboutJohn’s motives. John Doe was told at the first meeting when asked about these documents falling into and maybe already have to terrorist the grandfather Natividad replied the TERRORISM IS AN AMERICAN PROBLEM NOT MEXICAN THIS WAS ABOUT THE BUSINESS. John Doe showed no reaction to the answer and the conversation continued. If a deal could be worked out and Manuel released the operational part of the plan could be implemented. John gets control over the organizations computers [See attached]. Suad was agreeable since she had two motives one to help John Doe, if her father did not get the jail time he could be given about 30 years. The other to help John and the idea of tracking terrorist was good for the United States.
John sent the entire plan and access to the crime family to his control in Miami and was told that it could be discussed when I was in Miami. Foreign counterparts move faster and more decisive. John moved the plan to another agency and went to Chicago to offer Manuel a deal to get out of jail with out him knowing anything. Manual refused to see Suad and also turned down the deal. Suad suggested that the whole system should be exposed because she could see that the agency she sat with and identified people and discribed who was who, that they did not see this as a national security problem and terrorist problem but as an immigration problem. As was said in one meeting the powers to be in DC in the dept where more interested in a short term project to bust illegal’s and maybe a few small politicians.
There is of course a lot more in this story both personal and business and shows the young lady in a life that is hard to imagine and the people that profess to be family are very dangerous to entire countries.
