At first, the murder seemed to have all the markings of an attempted carjacking. When Los Angeles police officers reached the scene on the dark Boyle Heights street July 26, they found affluent software designer Bruce Cleland lying in a pool of blood across the street from his new black 4Runner. His distraught wife, Rebecca, said she had been knocked unconscious when she got out of the vehicle to check the tailgate and awoke to the gruesome sight.

If you're a regular reader of crime fiction but generally avoid true crime books because they too often read like footnoted legal briefs, William C. Rempel's "At the Devil's Table: The Untold Story of the Insider Who Brought Down the Cali Cartel," will have you questioning your bias against nonfiction. Rempel's story is stunning: Jorge Salcedo, a Colombian engineer and would-be entrepreneur, naively signs on for what he expects will be a brief and secret role in helping the Cali drug cartel hire European mercenaries to murder Pablo Escobar, head of the rival MedellĂ­n cartel.

Helen Salcedo of Bell High ended two years of frustration Wednesday when she won her first swimming title at the City Section finals at Belmont Plaza in Long Beach. Salcedo, who in past finals had finished second three times and third-place once in other events, won the 100-yard butterfly in 1 minute, .46 seconds. She had raced only three times in that event. Bell posted the best finish for a Central Los Angeles team, placing sixth in the girls' standings. Palisades won the girls' title.

The lead investigator in the slaying in Mexico of El Monte educator Augustin Roberto "Bobby" Salcedo has been killed in an ambush, officials said Saturday. It was not clear whether the death of investigator Manuel Acosta will have any effect on the case, in which little progress had been reported. Authorities would not speculate on whether Acosta's killing was related to Salcedo's. Hundreds of law enforcement officers and judicial officials have been slain in Mexico in recent years, often in an effort to thwart investigations and silence witnesses.

UCLA filled its men's soccer coaching vacancy by promoting former player and assistant Jorge Salcedo to replace Tom Fitzgerald, who resigned last month. Salcedo, 31, was selected over Paul Krumpe, men's coach at Loyola Marymount, and Ralph Perez, who was an assistant for six years with the Galaxy and is in the team's front office as director of youth development. Former UCLA player and current Cal Poly Pomona Coach Paul Caligiuri also was thought to be a candidate.

Jorge Salcedo has it all wrong. When you score a goal, as he did for the Galaxy on Sunday afternoon, the idea is to behave in a way that encourages fans to look at you. A post-goal celebratory run in soccer is a highly personal thing, a trademark. Salcedo may want to rethink his. The outcome of the game didn't hinge on Salcedo's goal in the 71st minute against hapless D.C. United.

Bell High School swimmer Helen Salcedo has always raced in the breaststroke or the individual medley, but at Wednesday's City Section swimming preliminaries the senior took a different plunge. Salcedo, who finished second to Granada Hills' Kristine Quance in the 100-meter breaststroke and the 200-meter individual medley in last year's finals, dropped the medley at this year's prelims and added the 100-meter butterfly. She only qualified for the event a week earlier, but her time of 1:02.

The high school football field in El Monte bore all the hallmarks of a homecoming rally Monday. Thousands of people sat on bleachers decorated with purple and gold balloons, the colors of the Mountain View High School Vikings. Music played from loudspeakers and students raised glow sticks. It was a celebration of an alumnus' life, but not the sort that anyone here wanted -- not this way. Agustin Roberto "Bobby" Salcedo was slain last week while celebrating the holidays in his wife's hometown in Mexico.

Last May, Bell High star swimmer Helen Salcedo finished second to Granada Hills' Kristine Quance in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard breaststroke at the City finals in Long Beach. Friends and relatives tried to console Salcedo after the breaststroke, her specialty, pointing to 1993 as the year she would finally beat Quance. But after checking the digital times above the Belmont Plaza pool and noticing she finished in 1:05.96, Salcedo wasn't looking for sympathy.

Bobby Salcedo grew up in El Monte, his immigrant parents staking the family's future in the working-class suburb that felt worlds away from the Mexican farming towns of their roots. But like so many Mexican Americans, some of Salcedo's fondest memories were from the winter and summer vacations when his family would pack into the van and drive 1,300 miles south to the lands of their ancestors in Jalisco. The pace of life slowed there, with children hanging out in town plazas late into the night and young men handing flowers to pretty girls as they strolled in opposing circles.

The FBI will join Mexican investigators in their search for the killers of El Monte school board member Bobby Salcedo and five other men in the central Mexico city of Gomez Palacio. Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman, said the Mexican government asked for the agency's help in the investigation into last week's slayings, though she declined to elaborate on what that assistance would specifically involve. "Mexican law enforcement is leading the investigation and has jurisdiction in the crime, but we're providing them whatever assistance they need," she said.

The execution of El Monte school board member Agustin Roberto "Bobby" Salcedo in the Mexican state of Durango is a horrible reminder that Mexico's drug violence does not belong to Mexico alone. It's ours too. There is the fact that U.S. consumption drives the illicit narcotics trade, of course. But there is also the reality that social and business relationships binding the two countries have resulted in a border that cannot guarantee Americans protection from drug violence. An estimated 1 million American citizens live in Mexico, and many more travel there each year.

They were aware of the dangers. Agustin Roberto "Bobby" Salcedo and his wife, Betzy, knew that this town, like much of Mexico, was no longer the tranquil spot it had been. "I've been coming regularly," Salcedo's widow said Saturday of her hometown. "We knew how bad it had become." And yet, the Salcedos ventured out for a few beers the night before New Year's Eve. "We were just going out with a group of friends," Betzy Salcedo said, speaking slowly and casting her eyes downward.

El Camino College swimmer Tomas Salcedo was in a jovial mood during practice this week. The Warriors have eased up in their workouts as they prepare for this weekend's South Coast Conference championships at the Belmont Plaza pool in Long Beach. Salcedo, one of the state's top community college breaststrokers, is usually very serious at practice. The indoor pool at El Camino is surrounded by banners that read: "Warrior Swimmers. House of Pain," and "Life's short. Swim hard."

A 33-year-old El Monte school board member and five other men were shot dead execution-style in north central Mexico on Wednesday night after they were abducted by gunmen, according to family members. Agustin Roberto "Bobby" Salcedo was having dinner with his wife in a restaurant when armed men burst in and kidnapped Salcedo and five other men. All six were found dead Thursday, El Monte officials said. Salcedo's wife was not abducted. Salcedo, who was also the assistant principal of instruction at El Monte High School, had arrived in the Mexican city of Gomez Palacio earlier this week.
