THE BORDER REPORT
This rumor comes straight out of Culiacán. It seems Ismael El Mayo Zambada knows perfectly well who kidnapped his cousin and two nieces – El Osama and Fernando El Ingeniero Sanchez Arellano. The Mexican Army apparently rescued the ladies already and I’m awaiting confirmation on the chisme. This leads to a few questions. UPDATE: The freshest rumor to come out of Sinaloa is that the kidnap was a $30 million ransom. At what point did someone think kidnapping El Mayo’s family for $10 bills each was a good idea? Vamos a ver.
Does that explain the drug rehab hit, 13 muertos, in Tijuana last week? The Tijuana city government has been trying to rebrand its image using the likes of Al Gore, The New Yorker and Carlos Slim. Then the kidnappings went down and suddenly the old capo’s eyes are settling on an arch-nemesis, the Arellanos. I don’t know about you, but I allowed myself to forget that old rivalry. Suddenly, perhaps, it’s back, and in full force. The question is, why? Why would the Arellanos move against Mayo’s family just as they were beginning to take control of their own city? Y que pedo con El Osama? What’s his story?
