Mexico raffles off headache narco mansion of Lord of the Skies

On the 17th try, a winning number was picked for the mansion that once belonged to former Juárez cartel boss Amado Carrillo Fuentes. Lottery administrators put three million numbers up for grabs, but the tepid public response meant that multiple numbers had to be picked before one came up a winner. “How would you like a house in Jardines del Pedregal?” tempted the commercials. “I can already picture myself living there!” a woman replies breathlessly. “Or you could sell it,” suggestes the announcer. The property has long been a headache for the Mexican government. Seized in January 1995 from Carrillo two years before his death, the mansion became a white elephant. A prize nobody wanted. Winning ticket number is 339,357 – the ticketholder’s identity will not be made public.
