When you hear stories like this, you think initially it can't be true, that it's something straight out of a Cormac McCarthy novel. But nope, it happened: a former Mexican drug cartel leader was killed in the middle of a kid's party by a gang of gunmen dressed as clowns. Francisco Rafael Arellano Felix, the 63-year-old former leader of the Tijuana Cartel, was shot surrounded by members of his own family at a party at a rented beach house in Cabo San Lucas, the popular tourist area in Baja California.
