One of the two brothers was dead when authorities found them Thursday in the northern state of Chihuahua.
Prosecutors say the man had been shot, abducted along with his brother, and their house burned down at the start of a rampage by fugitive suspect José Noriel Portillo Gil, alias “The Crooked One.”
Bizarrely, the rampage allegedly started when a local baseball team that Portillo Gil sponsored lost a game to a team that included the brothers.
