Police Unmask Mexican Serial Killer


Since the late 90's, Mexico City has been plagued by a serial killer.

The killer was dubbed "The Little Old Lady Killer" because, well, do I really need to explain why?

As of yesterday, this killing spree may have been brought to an end. Police arrested a woman fleeing the scene of a murder, where another old lady had been strangled with a stethoscope.

The woman who has been arrested is Juana Barraza. She is also a masked wrestler, known as the Silent Lady. She has been linked by fingerprints to at least 10 of what may be more than 30 murders attributed to the serial killer.

It took them this long to catch her? Apparently they don't get CSI in Mexico City, because if CSI has taught me anything, it's that, when you're tracking a killer, some of the first people you question are the local masked wrestlers. That's just good investigation technique.

Agreed.

Also, it's hot in Mexico City, so wear a tube top.

*This is one crazy crazy story.

Note To Self: Forget childhood fixation on comic book super heroes. The mysterious figure wearing the mask is not always the good guy.
