Mexican Police have Identified Two Suspects (Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias & Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias) in Shooting Death of David Hartley on Falcon Lake


Two “persons of interest” named  …

Mexican police have identified two individuals as “persons of interest”in the shooting death of American tourist David Hartley on the US-Mexico border Falcon Lake. The two individuals names suspected in the murder of David Hartly are Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias, known as “El 27″,  and Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias, , known as “El31″. However, police have not released a photo of the two suspects.

State police Commander Juan Carlos Ballasteros stated that the two men are from New Guerrero, Mexico,  close to the abandoned town of Old Guerrero where David and Tiffany Hartley were reportedly attack by Mexican pirates.

Tamaulipas State Police Commander Juan Carlos Ballesteros told El Universal newspaper on Saturday that authorities believe Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias and Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias killed Hartley.

Ballesteros told the paper that the two men are accused in numerous crimes in Mexico, including burning homes, robbing businesses and several homicides.

If there is no body, is there no crime … Sound Familiar?


This area of the US-Mexican border hardly seems like a safe vacation spot that would be endorsed by travel agents as it was reported that Mexican soldiers reportedly killed six gunmen Thursday afternoon, in the same area where Hartley went missing.

One question that comes to mind in the naming of these people of interest, what is the rational behind it? Is this the rounding up of the usual suspects in Mexico or do authorities have sunstantial facts as to why to point the finger at these two?

      Checking satellite view on … there is a house on the south side of the lake inlet with a boat at the shoreline. Nothing else in that inlet. ODDLY: San Antonio Express-News has published “pro” Mexico cartel comments in the website comments on articles regarding the story. Further, there is someone posting as “DG” from Mexico City.. giving excuses and fantasy reasons in support of the Mexico drug cartels. Even the U.S. congressman in the area is saying it will be taken care of by the Mexico drug cartel (????). There is one congressional candidate, Michael Idrogo ( ) who is proposing use of US NAVY SEALS on Falcon Lake (due to numerous incidents on that lake .. and the Zetas are supposedly Mexican-military-trained ex-commandos — the only way to take out commandos is to send in US NAVY SEALS.)[ US NAVY SEALS slogans: "Don't bother running... you'll only die tired." and "Taking out the garbage is our specialty."]
