MEXICO CITY (AP) - A state prosecutor says the body of one of Mexico's most feared drug lords was stolen from a funeral home by a group of armed men. It occurred a day after Zetas head Heriberto Lazcano was fatally shot in a gunfight with marines.
Coahuila Attorney General Homero Ramos says two men were killed by marines Sunday outside a baseball game in the town of Progreso. He says the fingerprints of one man matched the records of Lazcano, an army special forces deserter whose brutal paramilitary tactics helped define the devastating six-year war among Mexico's drug gangs and authorities.
Early Monday morning, Ramos said, a group of armed men raided the funeral home where the bodies were kept, and stole both corpses.
