Unsolved Mysteries

Querétaro is still all a-twitter over having our very own gangland-style executions last week - a man and two women from Amealco found blindfolded and shot just over the Querétaro-Michoacán border.  Michoacán is home to the spectacularly crazy "La Familia" drug cartel. The male victim is believed to have done a little low-level drug dealing on the side.  And the corpses were labeled with a two-foot-by-three-foot sign, written in magic marker, saying the the killings were part of a "promise" made to the Attorney General of Guanajuato (a state that has had it own rising level of drug violence lately), and signed by someone named Mencho.  We ran all this data through the BurroVac-9000 Crime-Solving Computer which crunched the numbers all weekend and concluded that the killings were drug-related, possibly carried out by someone named Mencho who has a specific beef with the Atty Gen of Guanajuato. It's now quietly calculating its share of the reward money.

So of course we read in yesterday's paper that investigators in Querétaro "have no particular theory regarding the executions."
