Mexico Death Of A Beauty Queen
In this Jan. 28, 2013 photo, photographs, balloons, statues and candles decorate the inside of the mausoleum where Maria Susana Flores Gamez is buried in Guamuchil, Mexico. Susy, as everyone called her, was looking at a promising future of beauty pageants and a chance to compete for the coveted Miss Sinaloa state title, the first step on the road to Miss Mexico but instead she died like a mobster’s moll, carrying an AK-47 assault rifle into a spray of gunfire from Mexican soldiers in November.
