Mexico City - Omar Trevino Morales, known as "Z-42" and leader of the Zetas drug cartel, is escorted by soldiers during a media conference about his arrest, March 4. Mexican security forces captured Morales, one of the country's most wanted men and brother to captured former Zetas leader Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, in the early morning in Monterrey without a single shot fired, according to officials. The cartel is considered one of the most violent in Mexico, known to have melted victims bodies in chemicals and set fire to a casino in 2011, killing 52 people. His arrest comes on the heels of the capture last Friday of Mexico's most-wanted man, Knights Templar cartel leader Servando "La Tuta" Gomez. slideshow
