A federal grand jury in McAllen, Tex., indicted 11 people, including the alleged “godfather,” Adolfo de Jesus Constanzo, of a human-sacrificing cult of drug smugglers, on drug charges. They were charged with conspiracy to import marijuana, importing marijuana, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute the drug and possession with intent to distribute, authorities said. Constanzo and five others remained at large. Four men are in custody in Mexico and another man was arrested Monday in Houston. Meanwhile, Juan Benitez Ayala, commander of the Federal Judicial Police in the border town of Matamoros, Mexico, said at least eight and possibly more of the murder victims were either associates or rivals of the Constanzo group.
