Despite a note beside her body addressed to other "sons-of-bitch" human rights lawyers, the Mexican government ruled Digna Ochoa's violent death "probable suicide" and slammed the case shut in July 2003. But Linda Diebel, a three-time recipient of the Amnesty International Media Award, will not let Ochoa's story die. Betrayed offers her chilling account of a cold-blooded murder and a cover-up that reaches into the top echelons of the Mexican government.
