Grim Discovery Made on Falcon Lake on the Texas-Mexico border … Human Remain Found, Could It Be Missing David Hartley? (UPDATE: Remains Not David Hartley)
Are the remains found that of missing David Hartley?
As reported by KWTX, a grim discovery was found by three local fisherman on Falcon Lake on the Texas-Mexico border. Yes, the same Falcon Lake where Tiffany Hartley stated that her husband, David Hartley, was gunned down and murdered while the two were on their Jet Skis. Human remains were found what appeared to be a skull and ribcage on the bank of the dammed section of the Rio Grande. The skeletal remains were found 15 miles from where David Hartley disappeared as told by the initial story of Tiffany Hartley. Could this be David Hartley or just one of many killed by the Mexican drug cartels in the area?
On closer inspection, Jones said, it quickly became obvious they had discovered the remains of a human draped in mud-caked clothing with the feet tied together and appeared to be a hole in the rear of the skull.
“It struck us these were human remains we were looking at,” he said Friday, “and it sends a chill down your spine.”
Jones said the first thing that came to mind was David Hartley, the Texas transplant who was gunned down by pirates on the lake in September 2010.
He said he and his friends took a photo and noted the GPS coordinates and then forwarded information to the U.S. Border Patrol.
One of the fisherman, Alton Jones, posted on his Facebook. Really, he posted on Facebook that he found human remains? Dude, TMI!
Jones posted on his Facebook page, “The fishing on Falcon was great. But unfortunately, our fun was over shadowed when we found a dead body on the Mexican side of the lake. We contacted the border patrol and they are notifying the Mexican authorities with the details. The body apparently had been there for a long time, because all that was left was the skeleton.”
Hmm, according to the report it states that the victims feet were still tied together. Just curious, why would a drug cartel bind an individuals feet together after they had supposedly already shot David Hartley in the head on his Jet Ski?
Tiffany Hartley had stated back on September 30, 2010 that Mexican pirates shot her husband who chased them on speedboats across Falcon Lake. As the search went on for David Hartley, the lead investigator in the case was beheaded. Obviously the drug cartel who control the area did not want this case solved.
Will this finally provide closure for the family of David Hartley or just add to the body count at the hands of Mexican drug cartels?
She told KUSA-TV in Denver on Monday that test results from the Mexican government show clothing on a human skeleton found at the lake recently don’t match what her husband was wearing, and the skull does not have a bullet wound.
