One of Mexico’s most wanted drug lords was captured near the border Monday night – and he has deep roots in North Texas. Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, the leader of the brutal Zetas drug cartel, was taken into custody near Nuevo Laredo. KERA’s Lauren Silverman called Alfredo Corchado, who’s in Mexico City covering the case for the Dallas Morning News, to talk about Trevino Morales’ links to Dallas.
