(Another Arrellano Felix brother killed)…Francisco Rafael Arrellano Felix was shot by a clown over the weekend.
The eldest brother of Mexico’s once feared Arrellano Felix drug Cartel, was in Los Cabos at the time. Officials say the elder Arrellano Felix was approached by a person dressed as a clown. The motive for the shooting is still under investigation. The 63 year old had been arrested in 1993 in connection with the shooting death of Roman Catholic Cardinal Juan Jesus Posadas Ocampo. He was extradited to the US in 2006 to be prosecuted on drug charges. Mexico requested he be deported back to Mexico when he was released in 2008. At one time the Arrellano Felix Cartel were the kingpins of drug trafficking all along the Mexico/California border.
