Falcon Lake Murder: Murder and Corruption Part 2

Asides from what I had previously said about the origins of the news that Mexican commander Armando Flores was decapitated, I would like to add this:.

Monday, October 4th, 2010
  • Comandante Armando Flores Villegas was telling The Monitor that he did not believe the Hartley story.

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010
  • Zapata County Sheriff, Sigifredo Gonzalez, decides that Flores Villegas is not helping him out, so he brings out a witness who apparently saw Tiffany being chased by a boat.  Heck, from what the witness tells us, he was also able to see brains oozing out of David's head, hear the "pirates" speaking in Spanish, and astonishingly tell us what the pirates and Tiffany were thinking.
  • Also on this day, Rick Perry gives the Mexican President 48 hours to call him with the news that the body has been found.  Talk about putting pressure over something that to this day makes no sense, especially with a wife who keeps changing her story and different set of coordinates being given by Sheriff Sigi.  Of course, Perry had much to gain at the time with elections coming up, and what a better way to show his cojones than to pretend interest in a story that involved an American presumably being murdered by "bad guys".

Thursday, October 7th, 2010
  • The search for the body continues at mid-morning.
  • Sheriff Sigi announces microscopic blood evidence on Tiffany Hartley's life vest.
  •  Later that day, the Mexican authorities increased their efforts under orders from Tamaulipas Gov. Eugenio Hernandez.
  • Also of importance is that on this day, Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez also sent word to the Zetas that he wanted David Hartley's body returned with the promise that he had no plans to prosecute.  The Sheriff goes on to say, "I sent word to them unofficially. I can't tell you how but I sent word to them."

Friday, October 8th, 2010
  • Tiffany has offered to take a lie detector test.....maybe.

Saturday, October 9th, 2010
  • Juan Carlos Ballesteros and Sheriff Sigi tell El Universal that they have identified two suspects, Juan Pedro and Jose Manuel Saldivar Farias.

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

  • N/A
  • According to reports from October 12th, 2010, on this day Mr. Villegas hands over documents to a KRGV photographer.  These documents supposedly identified  Juan Pedro and Jose Manuel Saldivar Farias as the suspects.
Monday, October 11th, 2010
  • N/A 
  • According to reports from October 12th, 2010, Mr. Villegas does not return home that night.
Thursday, October 12th, 2010
  • Aaron Pena tweets that Comandante Armando Flores Villegas has been beheaded
  • News stations follow with the same news

What happened between October 9th and October 12th could not be found.  Apparently, there was one article by KRGV-TV Channel 5 News that detailed more or less what happened, but that article has mysteriously been removed by Channel 5. 

Fortunately, I was able to find it posted in a forum famous for it's anti-immigrant rants and xenophobic comments, ALIPAC.US.  Therefore, I will not link you to their forum, not only because of that, but also because of a possible cover-up to lend their side credit.

I will instead post up an image of their page in the event they should remove it as well.  Here is a screen shot of their page:

Anyone interested in looking for that missing article or a link to where I got this screen shot can type in their search bar the following address: 
(Again, note this link address no longer works.  The KRGV author has removed it for unknown and strange reasons)

According to the author in this KRGV link, Comandante Flores Villegas "delivered documents to a CHANNEL 5 NEWS photographer over the weekend in Reynosa, Mexico."  
Those documents apparently contained information about the alleged Zeta cartel members suspected in the Hartley case.
The documents contain information about one of the brothers, Juan Pedro, including his last known address in the Mexican town of Guerrero. Villegas told CHANNEL 5 NEWS photographs of the two suspects were not available, as it is often difficult to obtain photos of known cartel members. Villegas said the brothers had not been arrested as of Sunday evening.  On Saturday, Tamaulipas State Police Unit chief Juan Carlos Ballesteros released similar information and documents to members of the Mexican media and CHANNEL 5 NEWS sources. Ballesteros told reporters the pair was already wanted for a list of felonies including murder, kidnapping, armed robbery, and arson. Ballesteros said the brothers belonged to a gang of pirates that have terrorized Falcon Lake and a nearby Mexican town.
Now why in the world would ANYONE release information about suspects that have not yet been apprehended to the media? 

What is even more bizarre is the coverage that the beheading got by the Mexican media. 

From my experience, they are not shy about showing the grizzly murders being committed in Mexico on the news.  If there's a massacred body, they'll put it up on the air anyways, so why was there no video or picture from them showing a decapitated head or the dead body of Armando Flores Villegas? 

As a matter of fact, what in the word did Armando Flores Villegas look like?  Like a friend of mine who is helping me out in this investigation said, normally when someone of interest is murdered, they'll at least place a picture of what he looked like for people to see. 

To this date, neither the Mexican or American media have produced that before death picture, and researching for  Mr.Villegas picture online has also brought up nothing.

For all we know, he could have been a fictional character.  In my opinion, if Mr. Flores Villegas did indeed exist, then he is not dead. It could be possible he might be held in captivity, or from the information that we have obtained, it is more than likely that if he is dead, his death truly had nothing to do with the Hartley's.  Otherwise, Mr. Ballesteros and Sheriff Sigi would be headless as well, as it has been said already that they too provided this information to the media, and they too are investigating this case.

In any event, this KRGV report again confirms that Ballesteros did indeed release information about the suspects to the media, and no doubt Sheriff Sigi knew as well.  

However, Sheriff Sigi exclaimed surprise at the news, claiming he had no knowledge of any suspects in the Hartley case. 

That in itself is surprising, considering the Sheriff claims to have "informants" who are working for him "unofficially".  Not only that, but the news had been spread from the 9th of October until Villegas' death, so why were Sigi and Ballesteros all of a sudden feigning ignorance?

As a matter of fact, from the 9th until Villegas's death, both were apparently no where to be found!

Yet, as was expected by those who were following this story closely, with the death of Mr. Villegas, Sheriff Sigi then just throws his hands up in the air and gives up with the pretense that the search will continue...on this side.  Never mind the fact that Tiffany has been stating David was shot in Mexico and was so sure that his body would be on land IN Mexico, not on this side.  So what is Sigi talking about when he says the search will continue on this side?

Furthermore, he also drops all mention of suspects.  That is, of course, until his "informants" give him confidential information about who murdered David, why, and that David's body and his jet ski were "destroyed and would never be found".

So why continue with the search right?  I mean, Sigi sure makes it sound like a lost cause, and all these incidents that make no sense keep happening to give support to the fact that this body will never be found...ever!

Truly, one really has to wonder at the generousity of these so called Falcon Lake "Pirates".

I mean, these "pirates" were nice enough to hide the grizzly "murder" of David (if they did indeed kill him) from the public; they were nice enough to spare Tiffany Hartley (because they were struck numb by her beauty); they were nice enough to spare a Sheriff who has insulted them at every turn by calling them "Zetitas".

Yet, all of a sudden they turn savages and start sending messages with the head of someone who was casting doubts on Tiffany's story and basically exonerating them?

It sort of reminds me of when these so called "pirates" stopped shooting at Tiffany in order to give her time to get back to her husband and try to save him, only to pick up again shooting and chasing her once she decided to flee for safety.

It's like they know when to strike and when not to.

Then again, it could also be the fact that Tiffany is being directed by God and the Sheriff has ESP.

I mean, with those "powers", how can they go wrong, right?

Not to mention, also, that Sheriff Sigi is also lucky he has "informants" with whom he communicates with "unofficially".

If they said the body and jet ski were disposed of and will never be found, then one has to believe these mysterious "informants".

And whatever you do, just don't cast doubt on the fact that these mysterious "informants" decided to share this very important detail with Sigi until AFTER the November 2010 elections.

I mean, you have to realize that these mysterious "informants" were just being considerate by making sure that this information didn't interfere with your voting.

After all, these informants work under cover with the "Lake Pirates" and there's no doubt in my mind that that's where they get their considerate manners from.

Well, you know how the saying goes:  If you lay down with dogs, you wake up smelling like one.

And if you ask me, Sheriff Sigi sure smells like one.

Until next time.


  1. Wow, iammme! You have put into words, both powerful and funny, my thoughts and questions about the mysterious and inexplicable death of Comandante Flores Villegas, and Sigi's strange "witnesses," who assured Sigi AFTER the beheading and AFTER the election, David's body and jet ski would never be found.

    There is much more to this story than has been reported by all those in media, who should know better. By all those in the media who have not used their enormous resources to dig for the truth, but have used these stories, because there is more here than one, for entertainment and amusement of the TV watching public.

    This is the only place I see any investigative journalism and interest in the truth of this story, or tragic series of events, all still a mystery.

    I not only look forward to next time, but hope others, if not the MSM, will start digging into the coverup of the events that ocurred on Falcon Lake, Zapata County, Texas on September 30, 2010.

  2. Searching for Comandante Flores Villegas in "El Universal" produced nothing under numerous variations and combinations of his name.

    How is it possible that an online search in the publication that covered Juan Carlos Ballesteros
    and Sigi's "discovery" on Oct. 9, that the two Saldivar Farias brothers were suspects in the Hartley case, produced nothing after Flores Villegas was allegedly decapitated?

    No news at all?

  3. hello my name is Jose Altamirano flores I am the son of the commander of the Ministerial Police of Tamaulipas Rolando Armando Villegas flores is disrespectful to say that my father did not die while you call a person or character that never existed in the death certificate is endorsed my father died of decapitation offends me a blog speak so ill of a person (my father ) who gave their lives for their country and to defend the rights of a foreigner hopefully when you write back you can have proof to substantiate your accusations my father was never corrupt or faked his death and never was a character family misses him and crying and that can not hide or deny on charges
