Mexico Army Arrests Suspect in Killing of Americans

Univision.com, Posted: Mar 30, 2010

MEXICO CITY-- The Mexican army arrested a suspect in the deaths of three individuals linked to the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez, including two U.S. citizens, reports Univision. Enrique Torres, spokesman for the Chihuahua state police, said the suspect is the leader of the gang Barrio Azteca.

Consulate employee Lesley A. Enriquez and her husband, Arthur H. Redelfs, died March 13 in Ciudad Juarez when gunmen opened fire on their car. Their seven-month-old daughter was found crying in the backseat. Jorge Alberto Salcido, the husband of a Mexican employee of the consulate, was killed in a separate attack.

Mexican and U.S. authorities say the Barrio Azteca gang worked for the Juarez cartel, trafficking drugs on both sides of the border. Barrio Azteca reportedly began as a gang in a Texas prison, and expanded to Juarez in the 1990s.
