HEAD GAMES: 90th anniversary of the theft of Pancho’s head

February 6, 2016

HEADGAMESx2700Ninety years ago (on Feb. 6, to be precise), someone broke into the grave of assassinated Mexican Revolutionary General Francisco “Pancho” Villa and made off with his head.

Pancho’s skull remains MIA, so far as we know officially, on this 90th anniversary of the sacking of his grave.


Just a very few years ago, one of the last men who rode with Villa passed away at the age of 109. (Mark that staggering age: it could be regarded as some kind of foreshadowing, perhaps.)


My Edgar/Anthony-nominated Hector Lassiter novel, HEAD GAMES, explores many of the legends attached to the theft of Villa’s head, including the possibility a certain political dynasty with the last name of Bush and a Yale secret society played a role.”
