Mexican Kidnapping Suspect Arrested

Well, we have some good news regarding the horrific kidnapping that took place a few days ago in Mexico of four Americans, two of whom were murdered.

A man has been arrested in the case, and identified as Jose Guadalupe N., 24, reports the New York Post.

Authorities reportedly caught him guarding the home where the Americans were being kept after they had been taken.

The Kidnapping

The kidnapping itself was a bold event that took place in broad daylight. Authorities suspected members of the Gulf Cartel were responsible for the crime, reports Fox News.

The four Americans, Latavia "Tay" McGee, Eric James Williams, Shaeed Woodard, and Zindell Brown, were reportedly taken to the home and tortured.

Authorities discovered the Americans in a small shack in Ejido Tecolote, a rural area east of the Mexican city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas. When they arrived, Woodward and Brown were already dead.

The two survivors, McGee and Williams, were transported under heavy guard to Brownsville, Texas, and taken to Valley Regional Medical Center in Brownsville to receive treatment.

Williams was shot in the leg, but McGee was uninjured.

The group of four Americans had traveled to Mexico for a cosmetic surgery procedure, but authorities believe their vehicle may have been mistaken for the vehicle of a rival cartel. The vehicle came under fire after entering Mexico, with all four individuals seen in surveillance video being taken by the cartel.

The two dead victims may have already been dead when taken, as you could see the cartel members dragging their bodies from the vehicle to the back of the pickup. If they were not dead from the gunfire at that point, it probably did not take long for them to bleed out once they were taken to the shack and held prisoner.

The FBI still has a $50,000 reward for information leading to arrests.
