Kidnapper testifies victim was 'cooked' in Mexico
McALLEN A man who pleaded guilty to committing a series of kidnappings on behalf of the Mexican Gulf cartel's enforcers has testified at the trial of a co-defendant that the body of a Texas victim was "cooked" on a ranch in Mexico.
Gerardo Zamora Espinoza testified Wednesday that Daniel Ramirez Jr. was kidnapped from the convenience store where he worked in 2008 because a high-ranking member of the cartel's enforcement arm was trying to expand his power in the area.

In the end, Carter (Doc) McCoy ends up fleeing to a town in Mexico that’s supposed to be a haven for cons on the run but ends up being a a very strange town full of cannibal’s. Carter (Doc) McCoy ends up in the cook pot.
I for one am glad they went with an alternate ending in the movie
Yet another reason to avoid the taco truck.
