Actress Ali Landry's inlaws, kidnapped in Tamaulipas, killed in Veracruz

by Lucio R.  for Borderland Beat

Tortured and killed after 5000 dollar ransom was paid

In-laws of actress and former Miss USA, Ali Landry, were kidnapped in Tampico, Tamaulipas and found dead in  ejido El Chachalaco, Pueblo Viejo, Veracruz.

Veracruz attorney general Luis Bravo, issued a statement saying Juan Manuel Gomez Fernandez and Juan Manuel Gomez Monteverde, father and brother of Miss Landry’s Mexican film maker husband ("Bella", "Little Boy"), Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, had both been killed by blows to the head, and left for dead several days before being discovered.  [photo of the couple at left]

The son, who lives in McAllen a Texas border city, was visiting his father at his Tampico livestock ranch. 

The kidnappers, using a stolen car with Tamaulipas license plates, abducted the two victims as they exited the ranch. A second report in the Mexican press says; after they left the ranch and were accosted in an area of Huasteca which is identified by authorities as a point of high risk.

The vehicle was found abandoned in Veracruz after the kidnapping.

Tampico is at the southernmost tip of Tamaulipas, sharing a border with the state of Veracruz.  A 17 minute drive separates the two cities involved in the kidnapping.

It was on September 4th when the victims were reported missing, but the news was not made public for over 2 weeks.  The bodies were discovered on September 16th .

5000 USD  demand was paid on September 5, but as often the case in Mexico, the victims were killed.  Following the ransom payment, kidnappers demanded additional money, when a request for proof of life was made, communications broke and no further contact was made.  This strongly suggests the victims were killed within 24 hours of abduction.

Mexican press is reporting, that the younger Gomez was a part owner of a Tampico restaurant, "La Pecerita", formally known as "El Callejón de los Milagros” which was a target of extortion by Mexican organized crime.  Tampico is a city heavy with violence and criminality as cartels war over the plaza.


The family did not contact local or state agencies to report the men kidnapped, they instead called the federal agency PGR and SEIDO.  One line of investigation is any involvement by municipal police.  

SEIDO, is the federal agency for organized crime investigations, initiated the investigation.




The Memorial Mass

350 mourners wore white to the memorial mass in Tampico.

Alejandro thanked those present and those who were not present but had reached out with love and sympathy.  

He asked that people remember his brother and father, for how they lived their life and not by their heinous murder.

He then read a letter he authored and gave to his father five years prior, one that his father cherished, kept in his briefcase, and reread often.

In part it read:

"Letter to my father;

I am writing this letter because I am at a point in my life in which I am very happy and content and all of it I owe to you papá … you have been the inspiration of my dreams and I want you to know that you still are, that is why I call you by phone and that is why I need your calls... you are my fuel.  

I am the most proud son in the world and you're the best father of the whole world, I love you so much papá, that at the moment of writing this, there are tears in my eyes. You always have been and will be always my hero, I brag about you to my friends.

Thank you for all you have done for me, the games, the adventures, the many trips we made, and the trips to the ranch with you were spectacular.

You were always there watching and protecting me,  thank you, thank you.. thank you!

You taught me to become the man I am today….you taught me, Eduardo and Juan Manuel, that love mattered above all other things....


After the memorial,  Alejandro and his wife Ali, scattered the ashes of his  father and brother off the Gulf Coast of Tampico.


The couple returned to Los Angeles, where an additional  memorial service will be held.

    1. it is because in the USA, 95% is the percentage of the conviction rate for kidnappers, etc. in Mexico, the conviction rate is somewhere around......what? 15%? there is your answer.

      Another thing, I think that Mexico was better off when the cartels didn't deal with cocaine (they only received like $1000 per kilo to move it) and they only dealt with green and some heroin and meth (smaller scale in the 80s and 90s). You can see how much greedier the cartels became when they started selling the coca to the Mexicans directly.

      You are not too smart if you live in Mexico where I do. Open your eyes. A lot of the street level killings are done by dealers selling in the streets to addicts. There are houses where people shoot up and the police leave them alone as there is no money for them among the poor addicts here. I will tell you will all honesty I see just as many drug users here as in the USA percentage wise. Available everywhere here. USA is just more successful and they buy more of everything, not just drugs. They are the largest economy in the world and everyone wants a piece of the action. Why would they be any different than Mexico when it comes to drug use among it's citizens?

      So can you say "Mexico are the addicts" and the suppliers.Wake up! It all starts here in Mexico. This is what some people here in Mexico do. Blame their problems and failures on someone outside of Mexico. Mexican people need to wake up and turn their country around. The poor, the drug addicted, uneducated, corruption and the high crime has been here forever.

      honestly it probley wasnt a zeta or a del golfo.
      like chivis was saying it was most likely a low level criminal or ciminals who had no clue who they kidnapped.
      asking for 5k is nothing. probley some two bit bums who were looking for money to spend on their drug habbit.
      may the poor victims rest in peace. im sure they are in a much better place now. God Bless

  2. Reports are that they killed them right away and continued asking for the ransom. Should also mention the recent film "Little Boy," directed by Alejandro Gomez Monteverde.

    1. We most likely will never know, they probably will parade some patsy with blackened eyes who "confesses"

      This is typical M.O. where they ask for a low sum and then hit with a bigger amount, but somehow I think these guys were not experienced kidnappers. They killed the victims within hrs, if you are going to ask for money they had to know the family would want proof of life.

      and the fact they asked for 5K sorta says they really did not know who they had.

      That said, I lean towards them not being taken at the ranch but in the red zone of Huasteca.

Mexico-Watcher, NorthAmerica was thousands of miles away from the brittish, like all the American continent was far away from all of Europe, but it did not work obviously, and the closer we get, "my god to thee" the worst we get treated by a civilization that has been hijacked by the devil, the phariseés and the philistines, but blame not the europeans, they ran away from Africa millions of years ago to escape blacks, indians and other aborigins, and it is not right to find them invading Europe too even today...

    Only when Americans and Canadians refuse to go to Mexico will there be a chance of change.
    Also, the American and Canadian gvt are weak when their citizens are kidnapped and murdered in Mexico.
    They only care if it is a gvt official!
    STAY OUT OF MEXICO!!!!
