The Vietnam veteran, overweight and ailing, was nearly 70 years old, and his wife, Diane, wasn’t much younger, but they had recently taken custody of their grandsons, a pair of rambunctious two-year-old twins. “We found out our daughter was a heroin addict,” Fox says in a tired, raspy voice. He’s seated at his kitchen table in Georgetown, Texas, a middle-class suburb of Austin, holding a mug of coffee in both hands. The end of one finger is missing from a lawn-mower accident. “We had no idea heroin was so bad,” he says. “I’d been a cop, and I couldn’t even spot it in my own kid.” Their adult son had also fallen victim to heroin, and would later commit suicide. “I had cancer on top of that,” Fox says. “Malignant melanoma.” All of this happened after he had to take his only living relative, a sister in Louisiana, off life support. “It was like a soap opera,” says Diane, her eyes filled with tears. The legal and medical bills, plus the expense of raising two toddlers, quickly depleted their savings, which led Fox to look into a certain side business.

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat Telesur

NOTE:  Reading Yaqui's amazing post on  Mirosalva Breach , reminded me of when I landed in Mexico and was told about the Creel Massacre Yaqui mentions it in her post.  See a post about the massacre below.  Yaqui's post is a MUST READ, she worked on it for days wading through the research.  Please give it a go.....Chivis

Young people were participating in a barefoot family race in Creel, one carrying his baby in his arms, when a group of unidentified assailants opened fire.

It marked ten years ago on August 16, 2018, when an armed group entered a small town in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua and opened fire, killing 12 young people and a baby. The tragedy marked the first civilian massacre in Mexico's so-called war on drugs, but there's no end in sight.

Miroslava Breach: The Journalist Who Would Not Be Silenced

Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Zeta
Miroslava: The journalist who could not be an accomplice of silence
Thanks Neal !
Readers, Prepare for a long Sunday read !
Before the murder, a gray Malibu car prowled the José María Mata street of the Granjas neighborhood in Ciudad Chihuahua. The security cameras installed on the street captured him six times between 21 and 22 March 2017 when he passed the two-story house marked for crime: it was the number 1609, with brown bars and a small garden in the porch. It was the house where on the 23rd in the morning the journalist Miroslava Breach Velducea was surprised and riddled with bullets on board her car, while she waited for her son to take him to school.

One of the sisters of the journalist remembers that on the afternoon of Monday, March 20, while unloading plants they had just bought out of the trunk of Miroslava's car, her gaze met that of a man walking on the sidewalk. She felt chills. When she learned of the murder, she understood that her younger sister was under surveillance.
