ZAPATA, Texas (AP) — Authorities in Mexico say the search has intensified for a missing American tourist presumably shot and killed by Mexican pirates on a border lake.
That news came after U.S. officials said threats of an ambush from drug gangs temporarily thwarted efforts.
Tiffany Hartley said her husband, David, was shot to death by Mexican pirates chasing them on speedboats across Falcon Lake on Sept. 30 as they returned on Jet Skis from a trip to photograph a historic Mexican church. Neither his body nor the Jet Ski has been recovered.
Mexican officials say hundreds of people using speedboats, helicopters and all-terrain vehicles are searching for David Hartley.
CNN says video shows the missing man's watercraft hours before reported incident:
However Michelle Malkins is VERY skeptical:
You also know that I have long called out fishy hoax crimes however the political/ideological chips fall.
Which brings me to why I did not jump all over the alleged Mexico lake shooting last week involving Tiffany Hartley and her husband, David.
At this point, there are way too many unanswered questions and inconsistencies in Mrs. Hartley’s story/stories.
