CNN reports that one of the investigators to David Hartley’s (the jet skier on Falcon Lake allegedly shot in the head) disappearance was beheaded.

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

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

This is the video that CNN posted about an hour ago.

The brutality is incredible but not surprising considering all that we have heard has been going on across the border. None of us want to doubt the Tiffany Hartley, it is just the unusual facts surrounding the case that put doubt in the minds of those who live on the border. This is a couple that had lived in Reynosa about two years and we assume they were well aware of the violence, especially in that particular area. I am not going to guess what they were doing on the Mexican side but the bottom line is that one man is missing and a Mexican investigator is now dead.

I have visited Guerrero Viejo before, when it was a little drier and you would walk into the church. Even years ago when we visited, we made sure to go in a large group because you never knew who might also be with you in the ghost town. Decisions are made and we cannot question them, just move on with the future. A future that I hope does not involve anyone else losing their life.

    Hey, the LMT has an associated press article on this story too. Notice that at the beginning of the article it says that the killed investigator was in charge of the Hartley case. At the end of the article it indicates that the Mexican police say that he was not investigating the Hartley case. What kind of journalism is this?
