    This women's story is not adding up. What about her share of the blame for her and her husband being stupid enough to ride jets skies in a known unsafe part of the lake? Then there's the part of her story where she had to go back past the 'bad guys' to get to the U.S. Shoreline, bull s..t. The wife wants a body found otherwise she will have to wait 7years for her husbands life insurance policy to pay off. She could've held onto one of her husbands hands and pulled him back to the shoreline, she didn't even try. Maybe it was a drug deal gone bad? The truth has yet to be found out, just a matter of time. Wife is lying!

      I believe your right. Something more here. Why was the Mexican investigator relieved of his head? Why were they there? Why would a cartel just kill for no reason? If that's the case then send in the drones..

    I AGREE. TOO MANY HOLES. WHY WOULD THE "DRUG CARTEL" LEAVE ANY WITNESES TO ID THEM. THIS JUST DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THE POLICE WILL NOT FIND HIS BODY IN THOSE WATERS NO MATER HOW LONG THEY SEARCH.....
