EP68: Death of a DEA Agent in Mexico

Description

In 1983, four American Jehovah's Witnesses inadvertently knocked on the door of drug lord Ernesto Fonseca. Paranoid they were undercover DEA agents, he had his henchmen (one being El Chapo) kidnap, torture, rape, murder, and dismember them. Then, a month later, two American tourists walked into a seafood restaurant for dinner, unaware that it had been reserved for a cartel party. The tourists were also kidnapped, tortured, and murdered. But it was only when the Guadalajara Cartel kidnapped, tortured, and murdered DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, that the United States finally put an end to their murderous rampage.
