Mexican officials and the DEA are reportedly looking into whether Kate del Castillo broke any laws in her dealings with the drug lord.
Mark 5:25 And there was a woman in the crowd who had a hemorrhage for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal from many doctors through the years and had spent everything she had to pay them,but she had gotten no better.In fact,she was worse.
