Fugitive Mexican mayor and wife, sought by officials in connection with missing 43 students, are found

The capture Tuesday of a fugitive Mexican mayor suspected of ordering the disappearance of 43 college students raises expectations of progress in the unsuccessful five-week-long search for the missing men.

But it also is probably making several politicians and other officials nervous, given their long-standing tolerance of — even support for — the mayor and his wife, despite her well-known connection to drug traffickers.

Jose Luis Abarca and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda, were arrested by an elite unit of federal police before dawn in a modest neighborhood of Mexico City, police spokesman Jose Ramon Salinas said. Their detention came more than a month after the mayor took a leave of absence in the Guerrero city of Iguala and the couple went on the lam.

They were transported to installations of the federal attorney general’s office that specialize in organized-crime investigations, where they were being interrogated, authorities said.

In a brief appearance before journalists, Atty. Gen. Jesus Murillo Karam said investigators were able to pinpoint the couple’s whereabouts because they chose to hide in a house that appeared abandoned. A third person was arrested for helping them hide, Murillo said.
