[Miss Sinaloa 2008] and international pageant winner [Queen of Hispanic America 2008] was detained by Zone 15 military and State Police at a military checkpoint in Zapopan Mexico just outside the world famous city of Guadalajara.
The Beauty Queen had been riding in one of two SUV trucks along with seven suspected gang members , one identified as Ángel García Urquiza – her boyfriend and also a Captain of the Juarez Cartel. His brother Ricardo García Urquiza – you may know by the alias ” El Doctor ”

And another video of the slim beauty Srta Zuniga showing her Dressed in Yellow -Winning the Crown this year in Mazatlan – Sinaloa – Mexico. You can’t miss her in that yellow gown.
Miss Zuniga also was second runner-up in the Nuestra Belleza Mexico pageant in Monterrey – Nueva Leon – Mexico in September entitling her to represent Mexico in the 2009 Miss International contest held in Asia.
The winner from Jalisco is going to represent Mexico in the Miss Universe Pageant.
Speaking of Miss Universe , Lupita Jones – national director of Nuestra Belleza Mexico – stated that Nuestra Belleza knew nothing about “any illicit activity in which she [Zunita]could be involved” and would await the results of the police investigation before making any decision about stripping Zunita-Huizar of her crown. ” Since 1994 , Nuestra Belleza has been a serious , honest and transparent organization dedicated exclusively to preparing Mexican women to successfully represent our country in various contests and whose object is to show the beauty, value and intelligence of each one of them ” the Former Miss Universe Lupita Jones said.
Miss [Srta] Zunita when asked why she was in the truck , told police that she was planning on traveling to Bolivia and Colombia with the men to ” go shopping “. She claimed no knowledge of the guns or money nor her boyfriends association with the Juarez Cartel. It was feared she was being used as a decoy – For Security Reasons and the High Profile of the Case – I believe all the detainees will be transferred to Mexico City [Ciudad de Mexico]where SIEDO will handle the investigation: Subprocuraduría de Investigación Especializada en Delincuencia Organizada.
