THE 20-year-old woman who made headlines for accepting the world's most dangerous job as police chief in a violent Mexican border town was fired yesterday.
Marisol Valles Garcia (pictured) was sacked for apparently abandoning her post after receiving death threats.
She was granted a leave of absence from March 2-7 to travel to the US but failed to return to Praxedis G Guerrero as agreed, city officials said.
"In the absence of (Ms Valles Garcia's) presence, and since there was no notification of a need to extend the period of her absence, the mayor has decided to remove her from office," officials said.
