Personal life[edit]

In early September 2008, Larios's 19-year-old son, Pablo Larios Garza, was reported missing. After an intense search, he was found dead by the border police near the area of Grajeno, approximately 600 feet away from Rio Grande. He attempted illegally cross the border to visit his girlfriend, who lived in the USA, since he had lost his visa.[2]
