The Reaction to La Barbie's Capture
Above we have a taste of Mexico's front pages today. Some of the news stories trickling out about the arrest of Édgar Valdez Villarreal include the claim that he tried to talk Arturo Beltrán Leyva into turning himself in shortly before he was killed in a shootout with the navy in December. As a result of his arrest, 11 more people connected to Valdez Villarreal were arrested in Colombia. Also, he couldn't wipe the smile off his face during his presentation to the cameras. Lastly, it's not much of a surprise, but the ranch house where Valdez Villarreal was arrested looks like a heck of a place to hole up.
