Further, she liked the most expensive restaurants in Guadalajara. His capricious character had made him famous in different circles. It was something in common with Rafa Quintero. People also know him as outpouring. Legend has it that before she agreed to go out with him. The capo had to endure several rudeness and denials on his part. Back then, the Guadalajara Cartel dominated the drug business.
Meeting with Quintero
In one of those places, the two met. They talked a lot and spent a lot of time together. It was the second or third time when Quintero saw her. This time, they were at an Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo restaurant, Lido. It was an old house converted into a restaurant. Therefore outrageous personalities from the government and high society of Guadalajara visit that place.
The two had a lot in common. In a short time, they had started a romantic relationship. Sara’s family did not approve of this relationship. The capo tried to flatter his parents by sending them expensive gifts. Among them, the family rejected a luxury car. This is one reason for anger. Despite the opposition of Sara’s family, the relationship would have grown and developed. But, everything changed in February 1985 when Enrique Camarena appeared dead.

The United States government launched a manhunt against Caro Quintero. Therefore, he fled Mexico on a private jet to Costa Rica. But he did not go alone. Sara was with him. But her relatives reported as kidnapped. The Mexican authorities never accepted the Mexican kingpin kidnapped the young woman. But rumors said that at that moment the couple was very much in love. Refuge and arrest of Quinta.
The two took shelter on the luxurious farm in Quinta La California. It was within the community of San Rafael de Ojo de Agua in Alajuela. The Mexican authorities tapped the phones of Sara’s family in Guadalajara. They wanted to trace any calls.

And in a matter of hours, the Judicial Investigation Agency broke into the farm. They were both naked in bed, although they never went beyond mere rumors.
The few photos of Sara as a young woman show her being overweight. After the scandal, she moved away from public life for several years. The rumor of the forbidden relationship grew. But thanks to the letter published by Carlos Monsiváis in the magazine Nexos.
