About time this made the CARE2 news as it happened some time back. Several women volunteers were also taken but released. One was a friend and she thought the perps were not druggies but local who think turtle eggs have aphrodisiac qualities.

Thanks Cal for posting the link to the article by Mr. Hance. Here are two sites where you can sign petitions to demand justice for Jair Mora Sandoval.

Read and sadly noted.
