In episode 7 of The Red Note podcast, authorities in Juarez insist that the Cotton Field Case has been solved. Attempts to prove otherwise would lead to the resignation of Chihuahua's forensics chief, the murder of a lawyer for one of the cotton field suspects, the ouster of the FBI's El Paso bureau chief, and the wrongful convictions of two bus drivers accused of the murders.
