This undated image taken from the Mexican Attorney General's Office rewards program website on Aug. 23, 2012, shows the alleged leader of Zetas drug cartel, Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, alias “Z-40.” A split in the leadership of Mexico's violent drug cartel has led to the rise of Trevino Morales, elevating him to the status of public enemy number one for both his friends and his enemies.
