Officials doubt Mexican cartel’s apology for kidnapping Americans

The cartel believed responsible for the armed kidnapping last week that killed two American tourists and a Mexican woman in Matamoros, Mexico, issued an apology letter and handed over five of their members to local authorities, according to images circulating online and a version of the letter obtained by CNN from an official familiar with the ongoing investigation.
The source told CNN that investigators believe the letter to be authentic. CNN's Josh Campbell reports that a source tells him that US and Mexican law enforcement doubt the sincerity of the apology. #CNN #News #joshcampbell


  1. I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature makes them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real estate values are fueled by the mix of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature in these communities, an example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self- improvement by hard work and a self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.

    1. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤪, the victims had lengthy drug charges.🤪🤫, let CNN do all the thinking for you

  2. It is the responsibility of the Mexican authorities and law enforcement to go after those responsible for these kidnappings, those who killed others. If some american gang kidnapped and or killed some Russian citizens it would be the responsibility of U.S. authorities and law enforcement to go after those responsible for the kidnappings and those who killed others.

  3. I must say, with everything that has been going on, THIS tragic situation is something both sides are in union about. Neither side buys into these individuals are responsible. And both sides want the entire cartel held accountable, not just a select few.

    1. Especially when those select few are just random civilians forced to take the fall. (If they’re lucky, they were paid to take the fall, but probably not.)

    1. @Green Bay that’s talking through both sides of your mouth. So which is it? America first or a freedom & democracy world view?

  4. AMLO has a valid point: the US appetite for illicit drugs is incredibly damaging to both countries.

    1. People think that miserable people with hard lives resort to drugs, and while that might be true, it’s even _more_ true that people with comfortable lives do them because they aren’t too busy trying make ends meet and stay alive. It’s not _exclusively_ a “first-world problem”, but it’s _especially_ a first-world problem.

  5. They handed over some dudes that they probably said they would kill their families. No cartel is sending an apology letter or giving up their associates

    1. They would not give up their people. They probably forced some innocent people to take the fall. And probably threatened their families if they didn’t.

    2. @L Jones they would not use innocent people. Cartel dont operate like that. There is honor in them

  6. As a new investor, it’s important to remember that investing and trading require more than just technical analysis skills. Discipline and emotional maturity play a significant role in achieving success. It’s wise to keep in mind the adage of “time in the market vs. timing the market,” as this mentality can help you weather market volatility. With insights of Mr George Philip and my commitment to learning and growth, I’ve been increasing my earnings in just a few months. Keep up the good work!👍

  7. Wow! They was getting smoke, you can’t mess up Money for your city/state. Tourism is a big bag for Mexico.

  8. Sing to me, Muse, of a troubled soul
    Lost in the depths of self-loathing and woe
    A liberal at home, with no goals or dreams
    A slave to Twitter, where outrage reigns supreme

    The world is complex, and knowledge is power
    But this troubled soul prefers to cower
    In envy of those who have it all
    Too lazy to rise, too weak to stand tall

    Jealousy eats at the heart and soul
    And hatred fills the void left whole
    By a life that lacks direction and drive
    A life that simply exists to survive

    Body image issues plague this soul
    And it finds solace in a toxic hole
    Of promoting unhealthy ways of life
    To find company in misery and strife

    Oh, troubled soul, your path is dark
    But there is hope, a tiny spark
    Deep within your heart and mind
    A chance to leave the past behind

    Embrace the light, the hope within
    And shed the shackles of envy and sin
    Educate yourself, think for yourself
    And rise above the toxic well

    For you are capable of greatness and more
    Than the life you lead behind closed doors
    Rise up, my friend, and take a stand
    For a better life, a brighter land

    1. Wow, I love this. Totally describes a person without God. A slave to culture and pressure to find a place to fit in, no freedom of thought, being mastered by fear, no sight or pressence of the gifts we were given, and so much more. I serve only God and fear only God from the awe inspired from his protection, love, gifts true freedom, peace, joy and so much more everyday. I’m a stubborn ol Jesus lovin hippie freak that never wanted to live another day without God the father, God the Son and God the Holy spirit once I reveived Him.

  9. Even with the recent dip in Stock Market, I’m still happy with my portfolio of $87,420 built from my weekly trade 😊, I’m having my 4th withdrawal in 10business day 😊….❤️

    1. yeah, Ever since I met expert Ray Dalio for the first time at a conference in manchester i invested £25,000 and traded in one month making close to £61,500

    2. I just withdrew my profits a week ago, it was so shocking when I withdrew $32,450 knowing I invested $3,000. I wish I could reinvest but, too much bills 😩

    3. I’m glad to see Mr.Ray Dalio mentioned here, my spouse recommended him to me after investing $10,000 and he has really helped us financially in times of COVID -19 lockdown here in Australia 🇦🇺

    4. Don’t be too happy about money or it will be gone. Hope your not in debt though. Kinda meaningless then. Goodluck to ya.

  10. their apology is real , i have no doubt , these cartels live in the shadows and any light scares them ,

    1. ♪ _La cucaracha, la cucaracha_ ♪
      ♪ _They like to sell drugs in the park_ ♪
      ♪ _La cucaracha, la cucaracha_ ♪
      ♪ _They scurry right back into the dark_ ♪

    1. Jeez, what a world where a cartel apologizes for unintentionally killing someone but dirty cops intentionally target people and the department covers it up for them. 🤦 _I feel like I’m taking CRAZY PILLS!_

  11. Neighbor was a friend we talked about criminals. He said he did 10 years for murder and some need to stay locked up.

  12. Successful people don’t become that way overnight. What most people see at a glance- wealth, a great career, purpose-is the result of hard work and hustle over time. I pray that anyone who reads this will be successful in life..

  13. Most thugs aren’t exactly the smartest people you’ll find so the idea that they killed the wrong people isn’t totally unbelievable.

  14. The friend that they left in America said in her interview that they were supposed to be back like in 15 minutes. Who gets a tummy tuck in 15 minutes? The guys that were killed had criminal records specifically for drug dealing. The one guy who survived, his wife didn’t even know that he had gone to Mexico With another woman😂
