I'm going to take a break from organized crime and the like and blog about little Paulette today. Apparently, the authorities have concluded that the 4-year-old girl who went missing for 9 days this Spring and was then found in her bed, dead, died in that very bed, of her own accidental smothering. Apparently, she was actually in the bed the whole time. Apparently, she was there while the police searched her room, the house, detained the mom, searched some more, put up billboards and launched TV ads looking for her, while an aunt slept in the very bed where she was supposedly lying dead.... And so on.
This story is too fucking ridiculous to be true. It reeks of jesus, I don't know what. It reeks of some weird twisted conspiracy on a par with the Juarez femicide conspiracy theories. In my mind, there is no explanation for it. And I add this: If State of Mexico Gov. Enrique Pena Nieto doesn't solve this twisted shit before running for president in 2012, I hope it haunts him for the rest of his days. Note to anyone in the press reading this: Ebrard has been haunted by the fact that he froze when two cops were lynched in Tlahuac when he was police chief, and that will likely resurface if he runs for president. If Pena Nieto runs, the 4-year-old corpse of Paulette should be pictured alongside every cheery photo op he ever does.
