I thought they did fire on her but she got to the US side and then they halted their effort..thought I heard that on TV.
I had some doubts about the wife at first as she seemed so controlled but when one is in shock they react in ways that don’t always fit the profile..remember that Susan Smith who cried all over the place and then it turned out she drove her kids in the car into the lake?
Also,I did a Google search and found this story from last May.It speaks of "pirates"...just as she did (a funny way to refer to killers,IMO) and the fact that several Americans were robbed at gunpoint...not killed or even harmed.It also mentions that the guys robbed were checking out the abandoned church on the Mexican side *just* like *she* said on Nightline last night.I wonder if *she* might have seen this story.I wonder whose idea it was to go to this particular place and then to (illegally) cross into Mexico to check out this church.Very curious,indeed (IMO).
I have no way of knowing what happened...I wasn't there...I don't know the area...and I don't know him or her.But particularly since finding that story (there's a link below) I'm suspicious of her.Quite suspicious.
Might she be telling the truth? Absolutely! Even Mexican authorities call that area dangerous.Might she be lying through her teeth? Given the evidence as it appears at this moment,absolutely! As I said before...life insurance...boyfriend/girlfriend......
