It would be interesting to get the "rest of the story". How did they find him in Mexico? Someone turn him in or did they know he had family there and went looking? Just glad he got caught.

In the past it was a problem extraditing murderers from Mexico because it is a capital crime, and that Catholic country would not let someone be brought back here if they might be killed as punishment. Now instead we will at best hold feed and clothe him as a ward of the state for decades. Justice.

News Flash to the Uninformed: Common knowledge amongst those who knew him in the Palm Springs area, Huell was one sick Mo-fo. Plenty of his twisted debauched escapades are legend in "the community." Rock Hudson would blush. Es muy dificil de creer....unless you know-know.

Huell Houser (sic) would never say anything remotely like this. Don't besmirch the reputation of a fine American, please. May he RIP.
