Mexican authorities Monday captured a notorious Texan who is accused of a bloody climb to the top echelon of one of the hemisphere's most powerful drug cartels.

Edgar Valdez Villarreal, known as “La Barbie” for his looks, faces a slew of charges in Mexico but also is wanted in the U.S., where he has been indicted on charges of smuggling thousands of pounds of cocaine into this country.
