We hear stores almost daily now about violence among drug cartels in Mexico, but over the weekend some of that violence spilled over the border. Police in rural Arizona found a charred SUV with five bodies inside along a stretch of desert road commonly used as a smuggling route. Authorities haven't charged anyone for the crime, but all signs are pointing to the cartels.
