Mexico’s Supreme Court overturned Wednesday a lower court decision to free drug kingpin Rafael Caro Quintero, whose sentence for the killing of a US agent was cut short in August.
Caro Quintero, considered a forefather of Mexico’s modern drug cartels, has vanished since walking out of prison on a legal technicality with 12 years left to run on his 40-year sentence.
The federal government, which was apparently caught off guard by the veteran drug trafficker’s release, had challenged the lower court decision, calling it an “absurd” ruling, and sought his re-arrest.

Dozens of mutilated bodies have been found in western Mexico where drug cartels are battling each other, it's been claimed. Officials said 33 corpses – showing signs of torture – had been found buried on the state border of Michoacan and Jalisco. The ...
