Who Is Next? The Murder Of A Young American And The Harvesting Of His Body Parts In Mexico

15 06 2017

 By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The illegal trafficking in human body parts is widespread globally; and Americans and others are being killed for them. No American should feel safe traveling to Mexico, the world’s second deadliest country last year[2].  And no Americans should do business with Mexico until this brutal murder is solved and the killers are brought to justice—and face life in prison, or the gallows.

He was the wonderful son of old friends of mine, and he grew up in Southern California.  He was loved deeply by his parents and so many others.[3] He had been surfing near Rosarito Beach and went to a hotel for the night. Two men were shown on the hotel video with an ice chest; and he was killed and his vital organs were removed for harvesting.

What happened to him could happen to any other American, and will. The Mexican authorities have closed the case, and his murderers have not been brought to justice. Mexico should be boycotted by all Americans and U.S. businesses until the killers and their accomplices are found and dealt with severely.

Anyone who understands the harvesting of human organs realizes that it constitutes a sophisticated enterprise in which time is of the essence. Not a minute can be wasted.  Once he was murdered and his organs were removed, and presumably placed in the ice chest, they had to be transported quickly or they were of no value to anyone.

Also, they had to be surgically removed by one or more persons who were skilled in doing so. Any mistakes would render the human parts worthless on the international organ market for the purpose of transplantation.  It has been noted:

Criminal networks increasingly engage in kidnappings, especially of children and teenagers, who are then taken to locations with medical equipment. There they are murdered and their organs harvested for the illegal organ trade.[4][5]

This heinous crime demands the attention of the Trump Administration and Mexico’s leadership, and action. Like the lovely Kate Steinle’s brutal murder in San Francisco[6], this young American must be remembered and his death must be avenged. Until then, Mexico must be shut down and closed from an American perspective.

Nothing less will suffice.

In 2014, an alleged member of the Mexican Knights Templar Cartel was arrested for kidnapping and murdering minors. Children were found wrapped in blankets and stuffed in a refrigerated container inside a van. Various accounts have stated the arrested man is part of a network that kidnaps and kills minors, after which their organs are removed. The Cartel’s other sources of income include drug trafficking, extortion, illegal mining, and, illegal logging.

It is so so sad, Smilin Jack.

I remember him as a sweet, handsome, hard-working kid, who lit up his proud and loving mother’s life, as an “only child” can do.

Tragically, much of Mexico is a lawless cesspool, where the cartels reign and make money in countless ways.

I thought human trafficking and slavery were the depths of depravity, but murder and the harvesting of human organs are inhuman.

And they are global phenomena.

Timothy, your story is very disturbing. I have been to the Rosarita Beach Hotel a number of times when I was a teenager. At one time, the hotel was deserted and in disrepair. My parents started going there when it again became a operating hotel business, although I remember it had a green colored pool. The water was unfiltered and unclorinated, but we survived. It was cheap.

I wonder if the “body snatchers” were casing the hotel for single guys with no buddies who may have been easy prey. We will never know because I don’t think the Policia are solving very many cold homicide cases in Mexico or Ensenada. There are simply too many unsolved murders and too few honest detectives in Mexico. No doubt the victim’s Calif. drivers license was designated: “Organ Donor”. Its not supposed to happen until you die naturally or in an auto accident.

We should detail some FBI Agents to go down there and look into it. Make it a requirement for any kind of foreign aid or even trade deals or cooperation. Trump needs to step-up if he wants to make America Great Again. Fact is, we are not safe in Mexico anymore. I would not go there today. We do need a Wall to keep illegals and drug traffickers out and Americans safe at home (in).

Thank you, Craig, for your comments—with which I agree completely.

I do not know the name of the hotel, and have never been to Rosarito Beach. However, a friend in San Diego, who knows the Mexican beach communities well, says they are not safe today.

Another friend who has had a house for decades farther down the Baja, on the Sea of Cortez, told me two days ago:

Word on the street [is that] three different cartels are vying for control. A . . . neighbor says when the majority of the tourist[s] leave or don’t show up this summer (hot) that’s when the fire works start. She seems to be in the know.

Is your Friend’s house on the Sea of Cortez located on the Gulf of California side in or near the town of La Paz? Give me a location or town to zero-in on. Some specifics besides (“Everywhere” is dangerous in Mexico). I know a good friend I grew-up with in the seventies who went to Los Cabos earlier this year and nothing happened to them. Ditto with a neighbor down the street who rented a house near Cancun on the Yucatan Peninsula for a whole month last year.

Cancun was built by the Drug Cartels with Drug Money, as was Miami, Florida ( Pablo Escobar). Sure, there was violence in all these cities connected with the Drug Cartels. I suspect the orders are to leave paying tourists in Cancun alone for the most part.

Stay in a crowd and blend-in and watch yourself after dark would be a good precaution just about anywhere these days, at home or abroad. Be the “Grey Man”. The world is not getting any safer as America declines. Trump is not changing any dominant trends that I can detect, as yet. Same endpoint regardless. Glide-path.

Thank you again, Craig.

As indicated in my article above (see fn. 3), the young man’s name is being withheld to protect his parents and their privacy. The same thing applies to my friend with the house in Baja.

All of us have been friends for many decades; and we watched the young man grow up and become the “apple of his parents’ eye.” Indeed, I thought about him on Sunday morning, May 7th, and wondered what he was doing these days, so Googled him and learned that he was dead. Thereafter, I was able to fill in many of the details.

Needless to say, I was shocked and stunned, and still am. Aside from all of the adjectives that I have applied to him above, he was a true star in every way. Thus, I have a very personal interest in seeing that justice is realized; and that what happened to him never happens to any other American.

I have a wonderful photo of him that was included with an earlier draft of the article above, but publishing it would invade the parents’ privacy.

Lastly, I have a genuine love for the Mexican people. Having grown up in Southern California where the wonderful Mexican culture is part of our culture—and knowing terrific Mexican-Americans to this day—I cannot praise them more highly; and vast numbers of them are suffering at the hands of the vicious and lawless cartels.

Most Mexican-Americans are very hard workers; they assimilate into the American society quickly, and often the second generation only speaks English; Mexican food has been my favorite for decades, although it is fattening; and each of my grandkids has one grandparent who is of Mexican-American heritage.

I agree, most Mexicans make good American citizens, provided they follow and obey all our Immigration Laws, as written. ( My grandfather was born in Mexico City and had Dual Citizenship in Mexico and the U.S.). Its pretty rare today as we have a one passport law to go along with a one drivers license law. Govt. wants exclusivity and control.

We can choose to change the law any time we want, provided Congress gets the necessary votes and the President signs. Executive Orders alone are not the way Democracy is supposed to work. Similarly, declaring a state a “Sanctuary State” by edict is anarchy. Sorry, I do have to draw the line here as I am no proponent of “open borders” as is the case with many of our political elites of both parties, especially here in the State of Calif.

Just remember Timothy, I did NOT request any person’s name to my knowledge. However, I did ask which town your friend has a house in ( “on the Sea of Cortez”). Unless its a “Two-Horse ( Dos Caballo Ciudad) Town”, I don’t think you are disclosing personal information if you did give a town or the nearest town anyway. Anonymous sources are commonly regarded as unverified and therefore, not an established fact. Maybe hearsay or rumor. Not equivalent.

You many have heard or been told by a third party about various occurrences inside Mexico, but not necessarily by a local Mexican National, who definitely would know their own country and speak freely about the local news. My experience is Mexicans are very verbal and are often involved in hearsay (gossip). Informal communication is what the common people often do everywhere, at home and in developing countries alike. Just not me.

As you know, Hearsay is not admissible in a court of law as evidence. Neither are personal opinions. If someone says (writes) it happened, ex parte, then that’s someone’s opinion. If someone said they heard it happened ( not a witness) then its hearsay. Just to be clear. Without a specific town name its not necessarily a fact as presented.

So, who knows what the truth is? Have to be able to collaborate “facts”. ( reference a newspaper article or the such). Otherwise, its potentially just more “Fake News”. The Mainstream Media has lost their credibility long ago with the public by doing slipshod journalism one too many times. Sorry. Grade: Incomplete as written.

It is a small town where everyone knows everyone else, certainly if they have lived there for years or decades.

Thus, I err on the side of privacy.
