Laura Zuniga Biography

As a biography, Laura Zuniga was born on January 3, 1985, so her age is 23. She is from Sinaloa, Mexico, a state on the pacific coast of Mexico with a well-known gang of the same name.

Laura is a successful beauty pageant participant. In July 2008 she was named Miss Sinaloa. Her victory speech focused on women, and how society should value them more. In September she won third place in the Nuestra Belleza Mexico pageant, which meant she would compete in the 2009 Miss International pageant. In October she won the Hispanoamerican Queen beauty contest in Bolivia.

As for the involvement with the gun truck, Laura says she was only going with the men to Bolivia and Colombia to go shopping. It seems that her boyfriend was the head of the group, suspected of smuggling cocaine from Colombia through Mexico and into the United States. A turf war between the Juarez Cartel and Carrillo Fuentes has claimed the lives of 1400 people in Juarez this year. Nuestra Bellezza is now investigating Laura’s involvement and whether she will be able to keep her crown.
