Beautiful Mexican television host, Inés Gómez Mont and her lawyer husband, Víctor Manuel Álvarez Puga, are reportedly on the run after allegedly embezzling billions of pesos.
The two are accused of embezzling close to 3 billion pesos, which is about $146 million USD, from the Ministry of the Interior in 2016 and 2017, according to Uno TV.
On Sept. 10 a federal warrant was issued for the couple’s arrest. Less than a week later, local outlet TVNotas reported that the couple had fled the country upon learning that they were being investigated.
Damn! $146 million?! I wonder were they somehow linked to the cartel or something. That’s a whole lotta money to have access to.

The wife of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was due to be sentenced this month but according to ABC Chicago News, her court date has been delayed.
Former beauty queen, turned drug felon, Emma Coronel, already pleaded guilty this summer in a cartel conspiracy but mysteriously her Washington, D.C. sentencing date was just put off for one month.
In June, Emma Coronel pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute narcotics and financial crimes. She was to be sentenced in two weeks; facing ten years in prison to life; a far more consequential punishment for a 31-year-old perhaps than her 64-year-old drug lord husband.
Lisa Buford appeared in Season 3 of the hit show “L.A. Hair” as herself, a celebrity barber. Prior to her entry into television, Lisa worked on Hollywood sets as a Lead Hair Department supervisor.
She also appeared as a cast member of “BMF Wives,” a reality based show centered around the wives of The Black Mafia Family drug organization. The show’s trailer gained a lot of steam in the internet streets but was never released.
I had the chance to speak with Lisa a few times & enjoyed cheering her on each week as she brought such a real ness to the show. She played no games, just like in real life!
I was excited when I spotted this clip of her debut entrance. She certainly came & left this show with a bang!
Lisa Montgomery is petitioning Donald Trump for a stay of execution prior to her scheduled execution date of December 8, 2020.
Lisa is hoping that her past traumas, horrific life experiences & mental illness would move the president to give her a second chance at a better life.
Here is her letter:
Dear President Trump,
We ask you to extend mercy to Lisa Montgomery, a victim of multiple rapes, child sex trafficking, and domestic violence. Lisa was sentenced to death by a jury that was never informed of the full extent and impact of the sexual violence and physical abuse she endured. As a result of her trauma, she is now so mentally ill that she must receive multiple medications to prevent full-blown psychosis.
We also ask you at a minimum to grant a stay of execution. We believe Lisa deserves a full and fair opportunity to petition the courts to stay her execution, as well as an opportunity to present comprehensive arguments to you and your administration as to why her death sentence should be commuted to life imprisonment. This cannot happen in the midst of a global pandemic.
The story of Lisa’s life is worse than a nightmare. She was born with permanent brain damage caused by her mother’s drinking during pregnancy. A child of extreme poverty, she was repeatedly raped by her stepfather. She was routinely beaten and terrorized by her mother. Lisa’s mother trafficked her to men who were allowed to rape Lisa in exchange for utilities and other services. Although this was suspected or known by teachers, police, and the courts, nobody intervened to protect Lisa.
This horror continued when she married her stepbrother at the urging of her mother at the age of 18. He continued the cycle of abuse, raping and beating her. Not surprisingly, this lifetime of torture exacerbated Lisa’s genetic predisposition to mental illness, and caused her to develop a dissociative disorder in addition to complex post-traumatic stress disorder. Her severe trauma and mental illness led directly to the crime for which she was convicted – the murder of a pregnant woman and the kidnapping of her child.
At her trial, prosecutors used gender stereotypes against Lisa, repeatedly casting her as unfit mother and homemaker, telling jurors that she didn’t go to her children’s events, and that “[s]he didn’t cook, and [s]he didn’t clean,” and kept a “filthy home.” The prosecution trivialized the evidence of her being repeatedly raped as a child, calling it the “abuse excuse.”
The lifetime of rape and sexual torture that Lisa endured is not an ‘abuse excuse.’ It was her horrific life story that the jury should have considered in deciding whether she was someone who deserved to live or die. The jury was never given that opportunity. President Trump, please consider this evidence and spare Lisa Montgomery’s life. Spending the rest of her life in prison is more than adequate punishment for this crime given Lisa’s traumatic history and mental illness.
Sign the Petition to grant Lisa Montgomery a pardon of execution.
