A Spanish teacher from North Carolina was killed by the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico, according to Mexican authorities.
Patrick Braxton-Andrew, who was last seen when he left for a hike in the mountain mining village of Urique, is believed to have been killed by a man who is known as “El Checo.”
The governor of Chihuahua said in a Facebook post, “Under the progress in the investigation, I can say that it was a cowardly and brutal murder, of a totally innocent person, a clean man whose misfortune was to cross paths with this rascal.”
Braxton-Andrew’s family confirmed his death in a social media post. (source)
