Enrique "KiKi" Camerena


Who was this guy and what happened to him?

Enrique Camerena, also known as "Kiki," was a special agent in the D.E.A (Drug Enforcement Agency). After years of him moving around in Mexico doing many different types of cases, he was finally on one of the biggest cocaine/marijuana bust in Mexico. In1985, he was about 4 days away from cracking a multi BILLION dollar drug pipeline. You have to remember that this guy is working with some of the most dangerous men in the country. Drug warlords do not play nice with the DEA for obvious reasons. Before he was able to release this pipeline to the public, he was kidnapped, tortured, and brutally murdered.

Fibers and Fabric

In the car, a sheet that was used to bury Kiki's body had left behind little fibers. The license plate of the car led them to the murders house where the torturing occurred. In the house fabrics from the car match fabrics from inside the house. From the evidence given, the FBI could clearly see that Kiki was sometime in this house and the car of the murder. The fibers of this case were a very important part of solving this crime because of it physical evidence given.
