    his brother found about a half ton of pot left on the property and notified the authorities.  The sheriff figures it's a revenge killing for interfering with trade.

      It's circumstantial but could be true. Certainly more likely than the idea that someone trying to cross into the country to get to a city and find work would have been in any way involved.

      They are using this story as a campaign ad. So I still say we do not know for sure what happened, but we know that in any case it is no excuse for this new law.

      the whole situation is really sad and maddening because the drug war is responsible for so much of the killing and fighting on the border, and yet immigrant workers who are peaceful and not involved in it are getting the blame and ranchers down there hunt them in the desert with impunity. It is crazy stuff going on.
