Mexican Drug War
June 12, 2007
What Medellin is to Colombia's narcotraffickers, Sinoloa is to the drug lords of Mexico. The capital city Culiacan is the home of many drug king pins and the site of over 300 drug related murders this year.
A drawing of Santa Muerte (Saint of Death), the patron saint of lost and desperate causes, and a favorite among drug traffickers is displayed on a wall near a rich area of the city.
