A man accused of helping a Mexican drug kingpin dispose of hundreds of victims by dissolving their bodies in acid was arrested in the border city of Tijuana, Mexican authorities said Friday. Santiago Meza Lopez allegedly disposed of at least 300 bodies over a decade, a Mexican military statement said. Authorities contend he dumped the bodies in graves, poured acid on them and let them dissolve underground. The victims are believed to be rivals of Teodoro Garcia Simental, an alleged former lieutenant of the Tijuana-based Arellano Felix drug cartel, authorities said.
