Why would the Mexican government question anybody if they don't have any credibility? Our government should push more warnings to our citizens into not going into Mexico. It has always been dangerous, now even more so.

People DON'T go into known drug cartel controlled waters on the Mexican border to water ski, etc. They don't.

They are from McAllen and know what the heck is going on in Mexico with drug war and violence. People don't go into deadly areas controlled by gangs to look at old churches .

And where is the body if it had a life vest??? It should be floating.

The Zetas are bunch of cowards. Does anybody really believe that this cartels/gunmen/animals have any training how to shoot at the enemy? Yeah right!
Actually, they do have training, or at least the original members of the Zetas did. They were formed out of defectors from a Mexican Army special forces type of unit. Unknown how many of the original recipients of this training are still around, but it is conceivable that they passed on their training to new recruits.

the wife is lying. in time the truth will come out. her story is to far fetch and inconsistent. you can bet American authorities are already doing background investigation but are letting the sociopath keep talking until she incriminates herself.. only believers of her lies are folks with KKK mentalities.

Unfortunately it’s hard to believe this woman's story. Why would the cartels want all this INTERNATIONAL attention to shoot a harmless unarmed American? Obviously all this attention is affecting "cartel" operations. That is why they are threatening MX law enforcement. The poor man is probably buried somewhere in the middle of nowhere. GIVE HER A POLYGRAPH TEST.

some folks would just love for the federal government to get involved for no other reason than the racial views towards Mexicans and politics, right sheriff barney and governor Perry. In a sense it woudl be good for the fed to get involve now so that the FBI can give her the polygraph and after that she’ll fall apart. She is already starting to crack because all the lying will eventually consume a person.

They themselves disregarded the warnings to go take pictures in a deadly zone.

The reason this is so outlandish sounding is that they themselves put their own lives in harms way by going into Mexican waters where drug cartels are on.

It sounds outlandish because a reasonable person would stay out of danger no go straight into it unarmed. Two tourists are no match for violent gunmen in cartels.

It is stupid and unbelievable.
That is the problem.

They will get the suspects and hope they do something in Mexico and the US to regain control of international waters from the drug cartels.
