Rafael Cedeno Hernandez

Rafael Cedeño Hernández
is an imprisoned Mexican drug trafficker who was a high-level leader of La Familia Michoacana Cartel, a drug cartel based in the Mexican state of Michoacán. He was the successor of Alberto Espinoza Barron, a drug trafficker who was arrested on 31 December 2008 by the Mexican authorities.

His drug cartel, La Familia Michoacana uses murder and torture to quash rivals, while building a social base in the Mexican state of Michoacán. It was the fastest-growing cartel in the country's drug war, and is a religious cult-like group that celebrates family values, and justifies murder as "divine justice".

Rafael Cedeño was arrested on 20 April 2009 during a raid at a baptism party for a baby born to a cartel member.
