Fugitive Mexican 'Dirty War' Suspect Dies

A fugitive former police commander under investigation for his suspected role in Mexico’s “dirty war” has turned up dead about a month after a historic warrant was issued for his arrest. Isidro Galeana, accused of kidnapping a leftist school teacher in 1974, was buried on Saturday at a cemetery in Acapulco, in the Pacific state of Guerrero. Galeana, who had been suffering from diabetes, liver and lung problems, had been on the run from authorities since the warrant was issued for his arrest in late November. Witnesses said he died on Friday at about 11 p.m. (midnight EST) of a heart attack, although it was not clear if he died in a hospital or a private residence.
