GRISLY SLAYINGS BRING MEXICAN DRUG WAR TO U.S.: “Five men dead in an apartment. In a county that might see five homicides in an entire year, the call over the sheriff’s radio revealed little about what awaited law enforcement at a sprawling apartment complex. . . . Some of the men showed signs of torture: Burns seared into their earlobes revealed where modified jumper cables had been clamped as an improvised electrocution device. Adhesive from duct tape used to bind the victims still clung to wrists and faces, from mouths to noses.” I spent a fair amount of time in — well, near — Columbiana as a kid. It does seem a far cry from the Mexican drug wars, but they’ve come a long way.
