Dead Rich - Mexican drug lords’ bulletproof tombs

Dead rich Mexican drug lords are spending millions building five-star air conditioned tombs fitted with satellite TV. The ultra-secure burial sites are even equipped with bulletproof glass and CCTV so family members can visit them without being gunned down.
