Drug-fueled triangle of death engulfs Rio Grande region | Houston & Texas News | - Houston Chronicle

Drug-fueled triangle of death engulfs Rio Grande region | Houston & Texas News | - Houston Chronicle: "killers came for police chief Oliver Garcia as he was readying for bed in this quiet village an hour's drive from the south Texas border, dragging him into the night in his red boxer shorts.
His assassins had already snatched two of Garcia's officers; they drove the three 10 miles away to a dirt road near a natural gas well and shot them down.
“He was never involved in things, so we never thought this could happen,” Alberto Lopez, the mayor of this village of just 2,500, said of the 62-year-old Garcia's killing last week. “We don't have gangsters in these towns, we don't have people involved in drugs. So people are very afraid.”
After four years of relative calm, Mexico's gangland battles have exploded anew in the industrial cities and ranch lands along the lower Rio Grande. Dozens have been killed in the past seven weeks throughout the triangle defined by the river's mouth, the cities of Laredo and metropolitan Monterrey. The skirmishes here reflect a bitter and presumably lasting split between the so-called Gulf Cartel drug smuggling organization and its vicious former enforcers, known as the Zetas."
