The four Americans, Latavia “Tay” McGee, Shaeed Woodard, Zindell Brown and Eric James Williams, who were kidnapped in Matamoros have reportedly been found. Two are dead, one is injured and the fourth is unharmed.
According to the Independent, the news broke just hours after the Americans were identified as a group of friends who travelled to Mexico to have one of them undergo a tummy tuck procedure.
They were travelling in a white minivan with North Carolina licence plates when they crossed the US border into Mexico on Friday.
Shortly after entering Matamoros, they were bundled into the back of a pickup truck and came under fire from a group of armed men.
A social media video appears to show the four friends being loaded into a pickup truck during their abduction, with many of them being dragged limply into the vehicle.
