Blood on the Corn: A DEA Agent is Tortured and Killed in Mexico – Matter – Medium
It strikes me as central to the story that the DEA's source was network analysis of AT&T CDRs, as we know thanks to Edward Snowden. Camarena either died protecting the secret, or was tortured to death because he didn't know about it and therefore couldn't answer the questions

In addition, there is scope to make it easier for UK police authorities to access communications data directly from the US CSPs. There is no bar to this in US law. We have discussed options with the companies to improve the process for making
communications data requests. The companies are developing their own technical solutions to this end, including online portals. We should encourage more of this

Drug Agents Use Vast Phone Trove, Eclipsing N.S.A.’s - NYTimes.com
Hemisphere covers every call that passes through an AT&T switch — not just those made by AT&T customers — and includes calls dating back 26 years, according to Hemisphere training slides bearing the logo of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. Some four billion call records are added to the database every day, the slides say; technical specialists say a single call may generate more than one record. Unlike the N.S.A. data, the Hemisphere data includes information on the locations of callers.

The slides were given to The New York Times by Drew Hendricks, a peace activist in Port Hadlock, Wash. He said he had received the PowerPoint presentation, in response to a series of public information requests to West Coast police agencies.

In March 2013, for instance, Hemisphere found the new phone number and location of a man who impersonated a general at a San Diego Navy base and then ran over a Navy intelligence agent
