Mexican drug lord's family: He's suffering in jail

Mexican drug lord's family: He's suffering in jail

The imprisoned "godfather" of Mexican drug trafficking is looking more like a grandfather these days, with cataracts, deafness, ulcers and a hernia, his family says in a rare open letter to Mexico's top police official.
The wife and children of imprisoned drug lord Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo say he is being mistreated in prison.
The family claims he is not getting proper medications and is being held in a special lockdown section amid "unhealthy conditions, humidity, a lack of ventilation, bad odors and darkness."
The family's letter to Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna was published in Mexico City newspapers Tuesday.
Felix Gallardo was arrested in 1989 and is serving a 40-year-sentence for drugs and weapons offenses.
