Alex Betancourt tweets his Vanguard; plus photos of Vanguard’s last known address

Even if Emiliano Salinas is distancing himself from Keith Raniere, as reported in Aristigui Noticia and Frank Report, his partner, and longtime lover, Alejandro Betancourt, is standing by his Vanguard.

He tweeted links to the English and Mexican versions of  Keith Raniere’s “A letter from the Co-founder of NXIVM/ESP”.

I am puzzled at how Keith Raniere is now calling himself a NXIVM/ESP “Co -founder” when in the past he always called himself the “Founder” of both.

As for Alex Betancourt, he filed criminal complaints against ex-members of NXIVM which required him to lie about his former friends.

At one time, Vanguard told Alex that he was Benito Mussolini in his past life. Alex did not leave Vanguard at the time but continued to follow him faithfully.

It is rumored that  that Vanguard learned that US law enforcement was investigating him and arrests of top NXIVM leaders and possibly himself might be forthcoming. Vanguard fled the USA, possibly in a private jet chartered by Clare Bronfman and came to  San Pedro Garza Garcia near Monterrey Mexico.

Vanguard entered a rented home in the neighborhood where one of his DOS slaves, Carola Garza, lives.

DOS slave Carola Garza lives in an exclusive neighborhood and the homeowners’ association wanted no part of Vanguard.

Vanguard  donned a baseball cap and sunglasses but the disguise did little to save him when neighbors recognized him walking with his DOS slave Jimena Garza in the closely watched and guarded neighborhood.

For 20 years, Vanguard built a cult of personality with his images and exploits published in media. His appearance and habit of walking with different females – a stranger on the quiet streets – did him in.

The homeowner’s association forced Vanguard to move out of the neighborhood and into a condo owned by Jimena Garza, another of his DOS slaves.

Here are a few photos of Vanguard’s last known address: Torres Horizonte, Boulevard Diaz Ordaz 26, Col. San Jeronimo, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, CP 64660.

Jimena Garza and her husband, Omar Boone, run the ESP Center in Monterrey. Jimena has been branded with Keith Raniere’s initials. Jimena and Omar moved out of their condo to make room for Vanguard.


Jimena got her pubic region branded with Keith Raniere’s initials as a mark of her lifelong slavery to him.

In some way,s this is cramped quarters for the Vanguard who likes to walk and visit different women’s homes throughout the night to mentor them.



While not shabby, the high rise apartment and condo complex is far from top tier.



There is a community swimming pool, but will Vanguard choose to use it?

The views are nice from the Towers but the windows are comparatively small.

It is hard to say whether Vanguard will remain for very long in Monterrey or if it is only a stopping point, to determine whether he can avoid being indicted  by placing the blame for any criminal activities related to  DOS on Allison Mack, Nancy Salzman, Lauren Salzman, India Oxenberg and all the financial crimes on Clare Bronfman and Nancy Salzman.

Stay tuned. There will be a lot of action happening in the next 30 days….

Vanguard certainly walks like a former NY State sprinting champion. Those little legs can motor!

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
