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

15 06 2017

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.
