Body Found in Woods Leads Police to Drug Cartel

 

On Wednesday morning, a woman's body was discovered in a heavily wooded area by a man while he was horseback riding. Police suspected foul play when a preliminary autopsy report revealed that the woman had died from an unidentified toxin. Police released a sketch of the unknown woman and soon received numerous tips that led them to a secluded house occupied by seven men. Upon conducting a house search, police were astonished by the large amounts of various illegal substances found on the premises. Further probing revealed a secret room in the house where a large meth lab was contained. All of the men were arrested on charges of illegal drug possession. After a lengthy interrogation, police were able to obtain each man's alias and role in the drug cartel. “Dopey”, who had a prior conviction three years ago for drug trafficking, was in charge of all marijuana sales for the business. “Doc”, a retired pharmacist, worked exclusively in the meth lab. “Sleepy” illegally obtained and sold large amounts of prescription drugs such as Percocet and Vicodin. “Grumpy”, a former Las Vegas pit boss, muscled out any competition that threatened the cartel's stronghold of the area. “Happy” controlled the sale and distribution of the drug XTC while “Sneezy” ran the cocaine end of the business. “Bashful” served as the cartel's launderer and accountant. The murdered woman was identified by the men as their boss, known only to them by her alias, “Snow White”. Police believe that as head of the drug cartel, she may have been killed by a rival for control of the area's business. Police have no suspects yet in the woman's murder. All seven men are being held without bail awaiting trial.
