The Terror of Torreón's Criminal Class
Bibiano Villa Castillo, former Torreón police chief/admitted employer of extrajudicial killings, has arrived in Cancún for his next job. Oddly enough, as Burro Hall points out, he was dressed as a confused January 1986-era football fan. Before leaving Torreón, however, a caravan of five trucks tried to kill him in Torreón, resulting in the wounding of nine people. Another, slightly less worrying sign of Laguneros happy to see him leave town: only 28 percent of the people responding to an online poll from El Siglo de Torreón say that his departure will have a negative impact on security.
