The hunt for the murderers of ICE agent Jaime Zapata continued.

The BBC reported that Mexican authorities have arrested two suspected leaders of the violent Mexican  Zetas drug gang in connection with the murder and the wounding of another ICE agent.

BBC reported that authorities arrested Sergio “El Toto” Mora, suspected head of the Zetas drugs gang in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila. Meanwhile, authorities detained Luis Miguel Rojo in San Luis Potosi, the town where the attack occurred.

Last week, authorities arrested Julian Zapata Espinoza, who told authorities that he and other thought the ICE agent’s car belonged to a rival gang, BBC reported.

Could it be the end of the line for ex-FBI agent Jody Weis, the first outsider to head up the Chicago Police Department in nearly 50 years?

The Chicago Tribune reports that his three-year, $310,000 a year contract as police chief expires on Tuesday, and Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel had pledged to replace him.

“We’ll see what happens,” Weis said during a news conference on Sunday, according to the Trib.

“When this position ends, I’ll look into doing something else. I’d like to do something here in Chicago,” he said. The former FBI agent was appointed by Mayor Richard Daley in 2008.
