SHOCK: Mormon family killed by Mexican cartel gunmen was executed at gunpoint, not hit in “crossfire”
By JD Heyes // Nov 11, 2019

Last week, Democrats and their propagandists in the “mainstream” media chastised President Donald Trump when he suggested in a tweet that the United States could send military forces to Mexico in an effort to help that government battle the powerful drug cartels.


The ‘offer’ came after nine American women and children were brutally murdered by gunmen loyal to one of the cartels.

Turns out that there was likely a very good reason for the president’s offer: The family wasn’t merely caught up in a deadly cartel ‘crossfire.’ New reports on Sunday indicate that the victims were targeted, captured, and then executed — perhaps as some grotesque, barbaric signal to the United States to stay out of cartel affairs. 

The UK Daily Mail reported: 

Several of the nine women and children who were brutally murdered by suspected gunmen on an isolated highway in Mexico were reportedly shot at point-blank range in a targeted assassination.  

The revelation comes as Mexican authorities reportedly refuse to allow American officials to investigate the massacre that left members of a small American Mormon village dead. 

“They were taken out of their cars and shot,” a U.S. federal investigator told the New York Post, adding that there are indications already that some of the evidence has been compromised.

“It's kind of disturbing that the FBI has had no access to the crime scene, which is probably a disaster already because the Mexicans have allowed families to remove the bodies. Any evidence that could have been gathered is probably destroyed,” the investigator said.

The Daily Mail quoted a Mexican government investigator who said the hitmen “shot some of the victims at point-blank range.” (Related: Another huge reason to build the wall: Mexican officials threaten to unleash drug cartels into the USA to punish Trump.)

Following the murders, some dual American-Mexican citizens are fleeing their homes and returning to the United States. An 18-vehicle caravan carrying some of the Mormon community arrived Saturday in Arizona — suggesting that they are either suspicious or aware that more of them were going to be targeted by the cartels at some point.

Mexican authorities are still investigating the crime scene in the state of Sonora, some 70 miles away from the Arizona border.

Mexican military official lied about what happened

Initially, Mexican authorities said that the attack on the Mormon family members on November 4 “was the result of local drug cartel gunmen who mistook the Mormons' fleet of dark SUVs for a rival gang's,” the Daily Mail reported.

That appears to be false.

Mexican Army chief of staff Hector Mendoza said the shootings were committed by a faction of the Juarez cartel, La Line, and some competitors from the Sinaloa Cartel, the latter of which was controlled by “El Chapo” Guzman.

Mendoza claimed that the rival groups had an altercation just a day before the massacre. He added that since the gunmen allowed some of the surviving children to run away, that indicated “it was not a targeted attack.”

But sources told the Post that story was a cover put forth by the Mexican government, most likely to throw the Trump administration off, keep American anger to a minimum and to hide the true motivations behind the attack.

“We've been saying all along that the Mexican government just doesn't want to investigate anything related to drug trafficking,” the U.S. investigator told the Post. “They will go to any extreme to cover everything up. It's completely corrupt, and it's only going to get worse.”

The official said that authorities in Sonora state asked the FBI to assist with the investigation, but that request was intercepted and overruled by the Mexican federal government.

One of the surviving family members noted of the cartel gunmen, “They [the hitmen] had to know that these were women and children,” the Daily Mail reported.

“This is so beyond comprehension, we're living like we're in Afghanistan, 100 miles from the U.S. border. They have to wipe these bad men out of Mexico just like the coalition that goes into Syria and these places,” another said.
