More La Barbie Nuggets
The recently arrested trafficker made an appearance in Felipe Calderón's Informe. Indeed, according to Carlos Loret, Valdez Villarreal saved the president's state of the nation report. Valdez Villarreal also admitted to helping hide El JJ, the man who allegedly put a bullet into Salvador Cabañas' head. Villarreal says that the forward and the trafficker (who was a friend of his from Laredo) were friends, but the former was in a bad mood the night he was shot, which led to the angry confrontation and the shooting. Now, he says, JJ is living in Colombia. Lastly, Valdez Villarreal said that he participated in a summit of drug leaders late last year, which included el Chapo, el Azul, Heriberto Lazcano, Mayo Zambada, and other industry heavyweights. This summit was aimed at hammering out a pact to carve up the nation's territory and reduce violence; it was demonstrably not a success.
