The U.S. isn’t doing enough to pressure Mexico to find the man who kidnapped and tortured a DEA agent after officials released him from a Mexican prison, Fox News reports.
“Enrique ‘Kiki’ Camarena was a decorated agent, his death long forgotten if not for his killer’s recent release and Mexico ignoring our extradition request,” Fox News correspondent William La Jeunesse said. “This raises questions about what the U.S. is, or isn’t doing, to find him.”
Camarena was abducted in 1985 and tortured for three days.
Mexican drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero and others crushed Camarena’s skull, used a cattle prod and drilled a hole into his head.
“Only U.S. pressure can make Mexico act,” Jeunesse said. “Right now, they don’t see it.”
