By Texcoco for Borderland Beat
Range Rover seized at La Leche
Note by Chivis:  The respected RioDoce Sinaloa newspaper, broke a story yesterday that kidnapped Alfredo Guzman, son of El Chapo was freed.  RioDoce has excellent Sinaloa sources and usually are correct in their stories, but have jumped the gun in the past.  Based on their reputation, mainstream Mexican media followed by republishing the story, attributing it to RioDoce.  Anabel Hernandez added that her "Guzman family sources" also reported to her that Alfredo was freed.  But she also cited the same family sources in her early reporting information on the kidnapping, which turned out to be false.  We are not sure about the release, as there is no confirmation a full day later,  but we though we should at least advise BB readers what is being said.  The latest and the superseding 22 page indictment against Alfredo (Alfredillo) I have added at bottom of post....report begins below
