Goalie Turned Kidnapper, Allegedly
Omar Ortiz, a former keeper with Rayados de Monterrey, was arrested on January 5 for participating in dozens of kidnappings, including that of the husband of Gloria Trevi. Ortiz, who also played on Mexico's national team a handful of times, was only a couple of years removed from his playing career, which ended early because of positive anti-doping tests. Authorities say that a cocaine addiction led him into the life of forcible abductions for ransom.
