I'm from Denton, and I'm pretty sure Andrew was involved with the drug trade. He was up here, he had a record

San Miguel is pretty and the weather is great most of the time.
A few tips:
Look Poor
Don't drink the public water
Don't eat off the street ( unless you want to take a stool sample to the lab to be checked for parasites )
Don't wear jewelry
Don't use credit cards
Don't carry money
Don't drive from Texas
NEVER drive after dark
Stay in centro
Walk with others you know
Now, go have a great time.

Andrew killed himself. There are no cartels in San Miguel. They are afraid of messing with gringos because they don't want interference from the USA. The former police chief threatened the Zetas when they tried to setup activities in the town. Unlike other Mexican towns, the police are not corrupt and committing many of the crimes. San Miguel is a very safe and special place. If you die down here, it will only be from a natural cause.

All the recent murders in SMA have been brought on by the victims themselves. There is no organized crime unlike the border cities. San Miguel is safe and people shouldn't be mislead by the BS stories and the exaggerated story on Nightline about the kidnapped man with American wife. He brought that upon himself too. Ordinary folks have nothing to worry about in San Miguel.

The local real estate interest have been heard from.
Local gringos have invested heavily in in San Miguel real estate and prefer that bad news not be heard. All this talk about narcos is bad for business.
They are not afraid to kill a ICE agent yesterday on the cuota.

Killed himself? So he shot himself 4 times with a 44? You must own a lot of land in SMA and are trying to keep the property value up, or a complete moron. I think it could be both

You are a liar. There have been two brutal murders of elderly, well thought of US residents in San miguel in the past four weks.
CBS has exposed you liars down there.

Yes, it's very bad there. Two of the murder victims were over the age of 80. The local Gringo property owners are trying to cover up these horrible crimes, hoping that their property values won't sink.
The jig us up in San Miguel. Mexico is now a failed state, unraveling with each passing day.

Please, don't enter Mexico, Your life is worth less than a peso.

I just returned from a wonderful 3 week stay in SMA and felt perfectly comfortable the entire time I was there. Like anywhere, one has to use common sense when out and about, particularly at night. There is a lot of distortion and hysteria in the press and not all of Mexico has heads rolling in the streets. My first night home there were 3 murders in Denver, but there were no travel alerts issued for Colorado!

as far as the 3 murders in SMA - dig a little deeper. There is more to the stories than CBS or other news agencies have reported....
