Texas Sheriff Says Evidence Supports Wife's Account of Pirate Attack

October 07, 2010  | 

In speaking about a vacationer who was apparently killed by armed men while exploring ruins on a watercraft at Falcon Lake, Zapata County (Texas) Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said the evidence supports the account given by Tiffany Hartley, the man's wife.

Gonzalez detailed some of the reasons he doesn't doubt that David Hartley, a 30-year-old Colorado native, was murdered a week ago by a drug gang on Falcon Lake, a 44-mile long waterway bisected by the U.S.-Mexico border.

A witness has come forward to corroborate Tiffany Hartley's account, Gonzalez said. Also, deputies recovered blood from Tiffany's water vest. Mexican authorities are currently searching for David Hartley's body.

At POLICE-TREXPO East in August, Gonzalez appeared on a border security panel. Watch a video interview from POLICE-TREXPO, where he discusses border threats.
