Who stole the body of Mexican drug baron Heriberto Lazcano? (Photos)
TO Mexico, where head of the Zetas drugs cartel Heriberto Lazcano is dead. Maybe. The Mexican Nazy says it killed Lazcano outside a baseball stadium. But when asked to show the body, they said it has been lost, stolen by unknown armed men from a funeral home.
The State wants to exhume Lazcano’s mother and father, take DNA and prove that they really did kill Lazcano. The Navy took fingerprints of their quarry. So. If the DNA matches, what more proof does anyone need that Lazcano is dead and the State is winning the war on drugs?
