Notorious drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero, convicted in the 1985 kidnap and murder of an American narcotics agent, was freed from prison Friday after serving 28 years for a crime that vexed U.S.-Mexican relations for decades.

Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena was working for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, based in the city of Guadalajara, when Caro Quintero allegedly ordered him killed. Camarena went missing in February 1985, as he left the U.S. consulate. His body, showing evidence of torture, was eventually discovered near a ranch in western Mexico’s Michoacan state, along with that of the Mexican pilot he flew with to hunt marijuana fields.

A tribunal spokeswoman said Friday that judges determined Caro Quintero was improperly convicted on federal charges when a state court should have been the proper venue. Because he had already served 28 years in prison, Caro Quintero was freed despite other existing charges.
