A top official of Mexico's attorney general's office was found dead, slumped over the steering wheel of his Chevrolet Suburban a block from his Mexico City home. Investigators said it appeared to be a suicide. Juan Manuel Izabal Villicana held a 9-millimeter Beretta pistol in his right hand and died of a single gunshot into his mouth, investigators said. There were no signs of a struggle, and the keys were in the vehicle's ignition.

A top aide to the attorney general is found slumped over the wheel of his car, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His corruption-busting boss is forced to admit that his right-hand man had secretly stashed a $700,000 fortune. In a suicide note, the aide acknowledges that the money "is difficult to explain."
