Mexican drug lord Carrillo Fuentes’ villa auctioned for $2m

The Mexican government has auctioned off the villa of the late drug lord Amado Carrillo Fuentes.

The Mexico City home sold for more than $2m (£1.6m) and the proceeds will go to Mexico’s public health service and its fight against coronavirus.

Carrillo Fuentes, who was known as “Lord of the Skies”, died in 1997 after botched plastic surgery.

He gained his nickname for his knack of smuggling large quantities of drugs in his private fleet of aeroplanes.
