Here’s a happy ending to a scary story:
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) â€” Venezuela’s justice minister says the mother of former major league pitcher Victor ZambranoÂ has been rescued.
Tareck El Aissami says federal police rescued an unharmed Elizabeth Mendez Zambrano on Tuesday in the central state of Aragua. He says three people have been detained.
Elizabeth Mendez Zambrano was abducted Sunday at her son’s farm. Police said seven armed men kidnapped her because they didn’t find large amounts of cash or jewelry.
I’m still trying to confirm whether the kidnappers simply traded her for Scott Kazmir’s mom.
