The case of a Texas man whose wife said he was fatally shot by Mexican pirates while riding a Jet Ski grows more mysterious, as Mexican authorities reportedly are questioning what really happened.
Mexican investigators say they haven’t found any evidence of an attack on David Hartley, 30, including his body or the personal watercraft he was said to be riding on Falcon Lake, The Monitor newspaper of McAllen, Texas, reported.
Hartley’s 29-year-old wife, Tiffany, told authorities the couple was taking in the sights on Jet Skis on Sept. 30 on the Mexican side of the border lake when several boats of gunmen began shooting at them, hitting her husband in the head. She said she tried to save him but then fled to safety. Authorities say the area on the Mexican side is abandoned and dangerous.
