Note: there is a lot of confusion among various news outlets reporting this. The Guardian reports that it happened along a dirt road, but the photo they include with a burned out truck is obviously on a paved road, so I don't know if that is a stock photo or a photo of the actual vehicle involved. This is simply horrifying news. Members of the LeBarón family, mostly women and children including infants, were massacred on a dirt road or highway in northern Mexico yesterday as they were going to another community to go shopping. I don't have a sense of exactly where this occurred; news reports just note that it was near the US-Mexico border along the Chihuahua - Sonora border, This appeared to be a cartel hit, with some speculation that it was mistaken identity. However, this happened as two instances along the same road; the vehicles were about 8 miles apart. CNN quotes Alex LeBarón Geography: Head to googlemaps.com Enter Douglas, AZ. Agua Prieta is on the Mexican side. The border between Sonora and Chihuahua roughly corresponds to the Arizona - New Mexico border. On the Mexican side, Highway 14 takes off to the southeast from Agua Prieta. Bavispe is 150 miles southeast on Mexico Highway 14. As the crow flies, Bavispe and Janos are not too far apart. The Guradian reports that the massacre happened on a dirt road in two separate spots; if so, it's likely a backroad that connected these two towns. From the New York Times: At Least 9 Members of Mormon Family in Mexico Are Killed in Ambush Six children were among the victims in a massacre attributed to organized crime, family members said. Other children were rescued, some of whom hid along a roadside. <snip> More detailed reporting from The Guardian, which includes a photo of one of the burned out trucks, but as noted above, I don't know if this is a stock photo or an actual photo of the truck. Mexico: up to nine members of US Mormon family killed in ambush LeBaron family relatives say nine victims, mainly children, dead in attack on dirt road between Chihuahua and Sonora states
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/03/23/iowa-family-four-that-went-missing-in-mexico-found-dead.html Yes, it is from Faux. What got me were the comments on this article... people who have never left the US, making all sorts of claims. The racism and hatred in these comments made me... well, close the article and come here. I just went to a similar place in Mexico, not too far from Tulum, in a freakin' wheelchair. Alone. I felt safe. I was safe, for the most part. If there was no "foul play" in this situation, as the article stated, there are many, many other possibilities why this family perished. The truth will come out.
Cleopatra7 posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkI know I shouldn't be surprised, since Charlie Sheen does not seem to have the best judgement in general, but I can't see this ending well for him or his loved ones: http://www.people.com/article/charlie-sheen-off-hiv-meds
