Mexican Officials Challenge Early Release of DEA Agent Killer, Caro Quintero

Enrique Camarena

Mexican officials said Tuesday they are seeking to reverse an appeals court ruling that led to the early release of a notorious drug kingpin who was in prison for killing a DEA agent, The LA Times reports.

Relations between the U.S. and Mexico became strained after Caro Quintero, the accused founder of the once-potent Guadalajara drug cartel, was released from prison after serving 28 years – 12 short of his sentence.

“The decision, in our opinion, wasn’t respectful of the legal framework,” Foreign Minister Jose Antonio Meade told reporters Tuesday. “We will have to find the way to reverse it.”

Quintero was convicted of kidnapping, torturing and murdering DEA Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena in 1985.
