Miss Drug Universe 2008: Laura Elena Zúñiga
On Monday night, Mexican police nabbed Laura Elena Zúñiga Huizar, a 23-year-old babe named “Miss Sinaloa 2008.” Ms. Zúñiga, who also holds the title of “Queen of Latin America 2008,” was traveling in an SUV with seven thugs, a couple of machine guns and $50K in cash. According to English-language news reports, Ms. Zúñiga was caught up in some sort of drug-trafficking operation. But with no drugs and just a pitiful amount of cash, the situation begs the question: What freakin’ drug deal? Especially given the rumors that she’s supposedly dating a guy deep in the Juarez cartel, which may control half of all drugs being moved into the US. According to Mexican newspapers, there’s a better explanation. Ms. Zúñiga was on her way to catch a plane to Colombia and Bolivia for some last-minute Christmas shopping. The money was for shopping; the guns for protection. After all, Mexico is a dangerous place these days.
Whatever her intentions, we here at The eXiled can’t help but stare — first in amazement, then in utter despair. In America, women busted for drugs usually look something like this.
It hurts our national pride to think that drug babes are always hotter on the other side of the border. We say open up the borders and let immigration wash away our ugliness. Meanwhile, here’s a few promo photos from Ms. Zúñiga’s portfolio. We just hope this little incident won’t keep her from competing in next year’s beauty pageant.
