Although the surname Lazcano has some historical relevance, the story itself, the people and the events are entirely fictional.

The series was created and written by Chilean screenwriter, José Ignacio Valenzuela and sees Guzman go head to head with the Lazcano, a powerful Mexican crime family.

Lazcano was the surname of Mexican drug lord, Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano.

Lazcano was the leader of the Los Zetas cartel and was known by the terrifying nickname, The Executioner.

TIME reported Lazcano would kill his victims by feeding them to lions and tigers he kept in a ranch and was also known for other brutal torture methods.

CNN Mexico reports Lazcano was a former member of the Mexican Army Special Forces before turning to the cartel.

He first worked as an enforcer for the Gulf Cartel before forming Loz Zetas in the late 2000s.

In July 2009, the United States Department of the Treasury sanctioned Lazcano under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act for his involvement in drug trafficking.

Lazcano was once one of the most wanted Mexican drug lords before his death in 2012.

The real Lazcano died in October 2012 following a shootout with the Mexican navy.

However, the Lazcano family, in particular, Guzman’s enemy Cesar Lazcano (Ginés García Millán) in Who Killed Sara? and the real Lazcano are not linked whatsoever.

At the end of Who Killed Sara? viewers learn the truer extent of Cesar’s dark crimes.

Not only was he uncovered as a violent rapist and murderer, it was revealed he not only raped and impregnated Sara, who was once his son’s girlfriend many years ago, he also raped and impregnated his son’s current wife.

Cesar was also involved in prostitution, blackmailing and murdering several prostitutes.

Speaking to El Imparcial de Oaxaca, Valenzuela explained he is a huge fan of the detective genre which may have inspired Who Killed Sara?

He said: “I love mystery. I grew up with it. At 14 or 14 years old, the books I was devouring were those by Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie.”

Who Killed Sara? is streaming on Netflix now.
