    Four Americans killed in Mexico near border: police

    Four Americans killed in Mexico near border: police | U.S. | Reuters

    ROSARITO, Mexico (Reuters) - Four people believed to be Americans were shot in the head and dumped in a notorious drug-smuggling area in northern Mexico near the border with California, Mexican police said on Monday.

    Police in the beach town of Rosarito, across the border from San Diego, said they discovered the bodies of three men and a woman on Sunday in an abandoned car in a remote patch of scrubland near the Pacific coast.

    "The bodies had been there for at least a week. They were spotted by local people out hunting," a municipal police spokesman said.

    Police concluded the victims were U.S. citizens because the vehicle had California license plates, the three men were of African-American appearance, the woman was Caucasian and a U.S. driver's license was found in the car, the spokesman said.

    The remote area is one of many along the border used by drug gangs to smuggle marijuana and cocaine into the United States, police said.

    Violence from Mexico's vicious war between rival cartels and the police and army has spilled over from the rough nearby city of Tijuana into once-quiet Rosarito and its outlying areas as gangs fight over smuggling routes into California.

    Some 1,300 people have been killed in drug violence across Mexico this year and more than 2,500 died in 2007.

    (Reporting by Lizbeth Diaz; Writing by Robin Emmott; Editing by John O'Callaghan)

    Sounds fishy...
    Also, I thought Mexicans couldn't hunt, only farmers could own a firearm upto a .222 cal rifle?

    Right off it sounds like some Americans might have been trying to do a buy, got robbed, and then dumped. End of Story........

    I guess the lesson is that if you are involved in drug trade either side of the border, you must calculate this stuff as one of the hazards of doing business.

    You never know. This is why I don't go to Mexico. Third-world areas are rife with bad people willing to kill you for the $100 in your pocket. It could feed their family for a long time.

    I will not go anywhere like that ever, unless forced.

    Sounds like a drug buy to me. I really don't know since I wasn't there.

    What is really bad there is that if you are involved in a serious accident, they throw BOTH drivers in jail and sort it out later! This is what I have heard.
    And I don't want to say definitively that those people were dealing drugs but it does not seem unlikely, given where they were and what happened.

    First time in Mexico, 1954; enough to keep me away till the job caused me to go in 1984.

    No way I'd go back.

    We need more than a fence. We need a mine field.

    The Americans were most likely trying to interfere with some good natured undocumented illegals alliens who were simply trying to come into the US to become active, prominent, well rounded, members of our social system. Question --- what part of the word "illegal aliens" don't you idiots in politics understand.
