Santiago Contreras Update

Remember when I originally said that kidnappings were more of a Third World phenomenon? Well, KNBC reports a possible Tijuana connection in the Santiago Contreras abduction. Ontario detective Jeff Crittenden is quoted as saying, "We do believe there is a connection to Tijuana. We don't know if it's business or family members."

And the business is characterized by KNBC as follows: "Relatives told police that Contreras had connections to a struggling food truck business in Mexico."

[25 FEBRUARY - this story has a sad ending.]
