FBI Joins Probe of Murder of Four Young Americans in Mexico

Monday, May 18, 2009

The gruesome murder of four young Americans in Tijuana remains unsolved, and Mexican authorities are investigating the possibility that the killings may be linked to the country's burgeoning illegal drug trade.

The bodies of the victims — who were reportedly beaten, stabbed and strangled — were found inside a van in eastern Tijuana on May 9, two days after at least two of them told relatives in Southern California that they were going to the border city for a night of partying.

Charles Smith, a spokesman for the U.S consulate in Tijuana, identified the victims as Luis Gamez Chaves, 21; Oscar Garcia III, 23; Brianna Hernandez, 19; and 20-year-old Carmen Jimena Ramos. All four were U.S. citizens from the San Diego-Chula Vista area.

Mexican prosecutors told the Associated Press they had ruled

  • I love these stories that indicate americans this americans that in Mexico. And then you read the names and they are all Mexican. Come on...you all felt the same thing. It just didn't matter as much when you read the names did it? Now if it was Johnson, Smith, Jones, and Roberts, you might scratch your head.

  • "American citizens" ????

    LOL.

    Who in their right fucking mind thought it was a good idea to make every child born to an illegal criminal inside our borders a citizen ??

    What other country has such a retarded and backward law that makes the child of a criminal an automatic citizen ??

  • I wonder what sins those four were guilty of to warrant such brutal heavenly redemption. Surely, let this be a warning for the rest of us not to give up our piety.
