Former drug lord denies killing US agent
A veteran Mexican drug lord wanted by the United States for the 1985 murder of a US undercover agent has denied killing the man and insisted that he has left the crime world. Rafael Caro Quintero, cofounder of the now-defunct Guadalajara cartel, said on July 24 that he has not resumed drug trafficking since his 2013 release from prison. Mr Caro Quintero, 63, was freed on a legal technicality after serving 28 years of a 40-year sentence for the torture and murder of the US Drug Enforcement Administration agent, Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, whose Mexican pilot, Alfredo Zavala, was also killed.
Miguel Caro Quintero served a 28year jail sentence.
