Adam Howe, another friend, said Landers had been in Mexico for about three weeks and the last time the two spoke was a few days before his death. Howe said Landers told him he was trying to learn Spanish and joked about gaining weight from eating too many churros. “He really meant a lot to me,” Howe told the outlet.

  1. Probably La Línea behind it, those savages. AMLO needs to let US personnel in there to put a stop to this or else he has blood on his hands.

    1. Probably a jealous ex boyfriend type crap.
      Hired hitmen.
      Not a cartel hit.
      Stop with La Linea hating just because they are beating the shit out of CDS in Chihuahua.

  7. Juarez is the 5th most dangerous city in the world right now.

    Things are absolutely worse now than 2006-2008, when the war for the city itself first flared up.

  8. Out of town people don't randomly get shot in Juares specially so many times. Unless this was a case of mistaken identity?
    Obviously nobody that knew them are going to say they were involved with drugs or wrong doing either. They may not know if this was the case also?
    The thing is that these are not the first people from the U.S. shot in Juarez but in most cases these people shot in Juarez do travel there to make business transactions with drug dealers. Something enemy crews might not like or if the deals fall through (drug deal gone bad), actions like these might be the outcome.

  16. On her FB in Febuary she mention having trouble being harassed by her ex boyfriend. Lets see. Beautiful blonde, Juarez, multiple hitmen, a bunch of shots grouped through the windscreen. I'm betting ex bf was a narco. QEPD to them both. If you read through her stuff, she seemed like pretty good people, and he def seems like a good guy too. They shouldnt have been in Juarez.

    1. How do you know she was an escaped escort. From some of the pictures she looks like her family was somewhat well off. People assume because she was a teacher she's supposed to be poor? What if she had a heart for helping kids? People always assume the worst. What makes him a smart ass?

      Delete
    2. O:52 spending a "quarantine" in Cd Juarez with a pretty woman who you just met somewhere on the US makes you smartass, and doesn't make her look very serious, certainly leads one to suspect sore ass boyfriend, more comments above agree with me, when i posted there were no comments yet

    3. I believe you're the smartass... a person who is irritating because they behave as if they know everything...
      Because you know for sure she's an escaped escort? You assume they "just met" 🙄

  27. Obviously there is A LOT missing here.

    Now I don’t know how much s PE teacher in Juarez makes, but she had money and was the fancy type. She sure did a lot of traveling (Paris being one of those places) on teacher’s pay. I would say she was narco girlfriend.

    As for the guy. He had no business in Juarez, none at all. Out of state plates from that far north will bring attention, not to mention with a nice jeep.

    2. STUPID COMMENT CLOWN!!!!! Don’t you have anything else to do but play on a random website?! Fake much?! A white guy with Ny plates makes him DEA or CIA? You’re so retarded!!! The cartel....which you have absolute zero knowledge about...doesn’t kill at random just guessing someone might be this or that and wouldn’t dare kill someone from either of those just blatantly like that. They’re still hiding from the Camarena hit. And they don’t make mistakes. This was a hit indeed who can’t tell that, carjackers don’t fire that many shots. Most likely he had been working and his connections rivals cancelled his az! You have never lived in Mexico but I have. You have no connections in your past like I do. Yes way way back many years ago but I speak from experience you speak from an imaginary image you’ve created for yourself in your mind. Grow up and get a job

Anyone going into Mexico in less absolutely necessary you a fucking idiot or your just plain insane.
