Slain Argentine singer likely not target, official says

Gunmen who shot dead one of Latin America's best-known folk singers Saturday likely did not have Facundo Cabral as their intended target, said Guatemalan Interior Minister Carlos Menocal.

In the car with Cabral was a Nicaraguan businessman, Henry Farina, who was driving, Menocal said .

"Everything points to that the attack was directed at him (Farina), and not the artist," he said. Still, a motive for the shooting remained unclear.

    @Queen: Just something about natural redheads, perhaps it's the rarity factor. Not saying that blondes aren't great too. Truth is all the younger women think going bald is se xy, but they don't get that leaving some down there is se xy too. Oh and always glad to share, you're welcome.

    Thanks for the clarification, dave.

    And your testimonial.

    I prefer a landing strip when I wax, myself.
