Mexico’s Knights Templar Cartel has made a name for itself as being violent and sadistic, but the extent may be more disturbing and terrible anyone previously imagined.
According to Michoacán’s Secretary of Public Security, the cartel is now profiling young children, with the intent of kidnapping them for the purposes of organ harvesting and cannibalism.
An arrest has been made in connection with the Knights Templar’s abducting children, taking them to a hidden location, harvesting their organs, and selling them on the black market. If those charges weren’t bad enough, it’s come to light that the Knights are profiling blond-haired, blue-eyed children not only for organ harvesting and sex trafficking – but also for cannibalism. The Knights are allegedly eating the hearts of these poor children.
Dr. Jose Manuel Mireles, a vigilante leader in Mexico, has rescued a group of the children kidnapped by the cartel, saving them from either lives in slavery or gruesome deaths.
Children are kidnapped and murdered every day. This story only goes to show that you must stay vigilant when it comes to your family’s safety, and you must not hesitate to respond if something goes wrong.
If you are concerned about a missing relative or friend and you think that they have been kidnapped in, or taken to, Mexico, you can call the US Embassy in Mexico. If it is not an emergency, the embassy asks that you call during office hours. They do, however, have an emergency number for times outside of office hours.
If you aren’t sure who you should be calling or who can actually help you, a private investigation agency, like Martin Investigative Services, can help. Once they’re informed that a person is missing and in potential harm, the local law enforcement will pay heed to the case. However, law enforcement is often overwhelmed with other cases and may not be able to allocate the necessary people and resources to find a missing child in time.
Private investigators should work with local law enforcement
Law enforcement agencies want nothing more than to serve and protect, and they don’t scoff at outside help in the right circumstances.
When we take on a missing persons case in Mexico, we can move across jurisdictional lines to obtain evidence legally. We can then hand that evidence over to the police and/or attorneys involved in the case, get missing persons back, and bring wrongdoers to justice.
Our private investigators are former DEA, FBI, IRS and Secret Service agents. As we have the same training and respect the law, law enforcement and Federal agencies tend to respect us in turn, and the help we can provide.
Every year we deal with a number of cases involving missing persons in Mexico, but I am reminded of a case out of our San Diego office, when a local businessman retained us because his sister had been kidnapped in Mexico, and he’d received a ransom note.
We were able to determine where the sister was being held, and our staff provided surveillance to confirm it. We turned this over to Mexican law enforcement, who then were able to rescue the sister.
If someone you love has gone missing in Mexico or near the border, it’s incredibly important to notify the authorities as soon as possible. Since time is the most important factor in any missing persons case, you may also wish to retain a licensed private investigator based out of the USA that has the experience, contacts and manpower to perform investigations in of Mexico.
