In 1985, American DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena was kidnapped, tortured, and murdered by Mexico’s most notorious drug lords. Thirty-five years later, three former cartel insiders share unprecedented details. This is the story of Camarena, the drug cartel he infiltrated, and the narc who risked everything to discover the truth.
Hector identifies the mysterious Cuban who interrogated Kiki as veteran CIA operative Felix Rodriguez, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal. Although warned not to take his investigation further, Hector refuses and is eventually forced into retirement. The case languishes for years, and then a new source comes forward with a shocking allegation.
Hector’s informants give him ground breaking evidence – first-hand, eyewitness accounts of Kiki's kidnapping, torture, and murder. He learns the incident took place in a cartel hacienda where high-level Mexican government officials were present, along with a mysterious Cuban. They also reveal the cartel and governments attempts to cover up the crime.Watch Now:Amazon
