According to reports, the four Americans taken hostage in Matamoros have been located. According to the Associated Press, two people are dead, one is hurt, and the fourth is unhurt.
After the Americans were revealed to be friends who traveled to Mexico so that one of them could undergo a stomach tuck treatment, the devastating news was announced a few hours later.
Latavia “Tay” McGee, Shaeed Woodard, Zindell Brown, and Eric James Williams, who came from South Carolina, were identified by family members as being in the group.
When the four entered Mexico on Friday, they rode in a white minivan with North Carolina license plates. They came under fire from a gang of armed men shortly after arriving in Matamoros, a region controlled by the Gulf cartel, and were thrown into the back of a pickup truck.
The four pals appear to be being loaded during their kidnapping into a pickup truck in a video making the rounds on social media, with many of them being dragged limply into the vehicle.
For information that would result in their recovery and the capture of those involved, the FBI offered a $50,000 reward.
