    Villalobos dropped the murder charge when my brother was killed in Cameron County under criminal circumstances. He will get another due when he dies. I’m glad Anderson Cooper and Gary Tuchman exposed him and Limas. He was paid off to drop the murder charge, but I can’t prove it. Cameron County politicians, at least in my opinion, are still the epitome of corruption. I hope Villalobos likes it in prison. I hope he goes out of there feet first and in a box.
