narco-saint
 n.— «Jesus Malverde, a legendary crime figure revered as a saint by many of the country’s drug traffickers, has received plenty worshippers since the shrine went up in the capital’s rough Doctores neighborhood.…The so-called “narco-saint” already had a shrine in the city of Culiacan in northern Sinaloa state, considered the cradle of Mexico’s top drug clans.» —“So-called ‘Narco-Saint’ Gets Shrine in Mexico” in Mexico City NewsMax.com Jan. 23, 2007.
