Mexican Cartel Apologizes for Kidnapping & Killing Americans, Hands over Thugs Responsible

The Gulf Cartel has handed over a gang of thugs that it claims was responsible for the recent kidnapping and killing of American citizens in Mexico.

The surprise move came after American politicians called for the U.S. Marines to go into Mexico and drop the hammer on the cartel.

According to a letter that was reportedly written by cartel bosses, the five men handed over were responsible for abducting four Americans and killing two of them.

In the letter, the cartel apologized for the two American citizens who were killed during the armed kidnapping in Mexico.

The cartel condemned the violence in a letter and said they turned over members who were involved in the heinous crimes.

A senior law enforcement official told media outlets that U.S. authorities believe the letter is legitimate.

The letter said: “The Gulf Cartel Grupo Escorpiones strongly condemns the events of Friday, March 3 in which unfortunately an innocent working mother died and four American citizens were kidnapped, of which two died.

“For this reason, we have decided to hand over those involved and directly responsible for the events who at all times acted under their own determination and lack of discipline and against the rules of respecting the life and well-being of the innocent in which the CDG has always operated.”

The four Americans were shot at and kidnapped after crossing the border into northern Mexico for a medical procedure.

Tamaulipas state Gov. Américo Villarreal said a woman, identified by family as LaTavia Washington McGee, and a man, Eric Williams, survived the kidnapping.

“The DEA and the FBI are doing everything possible to dismantle and disrupt and ultimately prosecute the leaders of the cartels and the entire networks that they depend on.”

According to the AP:

A separate state security official said that five men had been found tied up inside one of the vehicles that authorities had been searching for, along with the letter.

That official also spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the case.

The cousin of one of the victims said his family feels “great” knowing that Eric Williams, who was shot in the left leg, is alive but does not accept any apologies from the cartel blamed for kidnapping the Americans.

“It ain’t gonna change nothing about the suffering that we went through,” Jerry Wallace told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Wallace, 62, called for the American and Mexican governments to better address cartel violence.
