Killing for the Cartel

Police believe East LA high-school dropout Jose Saenz has killed a good friend and the mother of his daughter

But when it comes to murders and kidnappings in Southern California linked to Jose Saenz, detective Gonzales says, “People aren’t willing to cooperate and talk about what is going on and what is happening.”

Short of a confession from Smiley, Bogart’s death will go down as accidental, a reminder that the cross-border drug carnage in America’s cities—fueled by Smiley and young boys who grow up to be like him, as well as their willing customers—is never fully measured.
