Head of lead investigator in Falcon Lake case found

The severed head of the lead Mexican investigator in the Falcon Lake
case was delivered Tuesday in a suitcase to the Mexican military, Texas Rep. Aaron Pena told CNN.

However, a spokesman for the attorney general of Tamaulipas state in Mexico said he had not heard the report.

David Michael Hartley went missing September 30. His wife, Tiffany, told authorities her husband was shot and killed during a sightseeing trip on Falcon Lake, which bisects the U.S.-Mexico border in South Texas.

    so, vaquero, are you implying that because the Hartley's were allegedly in Mexico illegally, that is justification in shooting one of them dead? Using your logic, that kind of opens the door to committing genocide on about 12 million illegals in this country, doesn't it? Just sayin'...

    I am a caucasion American. We Americans are the weakest and most litigious group of humans on the face of the planet, and we only make up 6% of it's population. We are arrogant, uneducated by world standards and MEAN spirited. My life was destroyed by a right wing prosecutor 10 years ago over 3 misdemeanor convictions over crimes I simply did not commit. So, I thank God for the group that did this. Thank you Mexican group that did this. I hope they get some pudgy, overweight, pale white texas, cowboy hat wearing sheriffs too. Go on you big bad litigious Americans, I'm an American too, and I urge us, go after this Mexican group. I dare us to do it. They will laugh at your charges and cut your heads off! Praise God. From a white American who was destroyed by other white litigious Americans, I say THANK YOU to the Mexican group that did cut that investigators head off! God is good all the time, and all the time GOD IS GOOD!

      Anoni, you are being selfish and hateful. It sound like customs and you have a love-hate relationship. That poor man risk his life trying to conquer evil. We need to vindicate the investigator and this husband. It sound like you are free, I will pray for you to be healed from the hateful, selfish heart.

    If the US destroyed the cocaine and poppy fields with pesticides or incendiary bombs the supply for those drugs would cease. This would cripple many of the cartels financially. Law enforcement could then focus on the synthetic drugs with more resources at their exposure. Blaming the user is not a valid argument nor has targeting users worked to this point. Most potential users are young people targeted by drug dealers. I'm not going to blame a high school kid for a failed US policy. Its political suicide to fix a problem because Washington needs things to be fixed in order to look like its doing something.

    @Tom I'm not talking about pot. Pot should be legal and doesn't kill people. Poppy plantations are mostly in Asia and the US knows where they are. Cocaine is mostly grown in South America and the US knows where its being grown too. All you people want is violence. Killing one drug dealer leads to another taking his place. Blaming the user eh? For every person that gets clean there's another one that gets hooked. The Just Say No idea hasn't worked so far has it? Great idea... Just say no

    With all the dumb parents raising kids these days you will never see an end to a demand for drugs. Waving a magic wand and telling America to stay away from drugs is unrealistic. Look at children's role models many of them get busted for drugs or weapons all the time. You going to amend the first amendment so entertainment can't allow violence, s,e,x or drug use? Sweeping changes need to be made to our culture in order for people to not want drugs. Ending the supply might actually help some of these role models get clean. You're right though just say no works so well. We don't have a Narco State on its borders or anything with heads being chopped off.
