fugitive polygamist from Arizona has been arrested with four wives and a "concubine" on the grounds of a conservative religious community in the northern Mexican desert highlands.
More than two dozen U.S. citizens, apparently disciples of the polygamist's "commune," have been detained in the same hamlet in Mexico's Chihuahua state.
And it's all linked to the slayings of three young Americans, two of them sons of the polygamist, shot dead weeks earlier in a nearby rural enclave called "Black Ranch."
In a bizarre twist, Mexican authorities say police also seized 65 preserved exotic wildlife parts and pelts, among them lion-skin and bearskin rugs, a pair of elephant feet, various stuffed birds and remnants other creatures, including zebra and buffalo heads. Authorities did not specify if the cache was a trophy collection or had another purpose.
