Michelle Valadez, center, whose husband Ignacio was kidnapped, held for three months and killed in 2005, allegedly by the gang led by the Mexican then boyfriend of Frenchwoman Florence Cassez, cries while being interviewed by reporters outside a prison where Cassez had been held in Mexico City, Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013. A Mexican Supreme Court panel voted Wednesday to release Cassez, a Frenchwoman who says she was unjustly sentenced to 60 years in prison for kidnapping and whose case became a cause celebre in France, straining relations between the two countries. A police convoy with sirens flashing escorted a white sports utility vehicle out of the prison where Cassez had been held later Wednesday, presumably carrying her to the Mexico City airport. Relatives of kidnap victims angrily shouted "Killer!" as the vehicle pulled away. (AP Photo/Andres Leighton)
