Mexican Suspect Detained in the 2010 Murder of Colorado Native David Hartley

Authorities in Mexico say they have detained a drug cartel leader suspected in the 2010 killing of Colorado native David Hartley. He was shot while jet skiing with his wife on a lake that straddles the U.S.-Mexican border.

Salvador Alfonso Martinez Escobedo was arrestedyesterday on murder charges. The Mexican navy says the suspected cartel leader captured over the weekend is accused of involvement of David Hartley’s death and some of Mexico’s most notorious crimes in recent years. David’s widow Tiffany Hartley lives in northern Colorado. The couple was jet skiing in 2010 when armed men on boats opened fire on them, killing David.

The Mexican navy said Monday it had nabbed suspected Zetas cartel leader Salvador Alfonso Martinez Escobedo, who is believed to have masterminded the massacre of 72 migrants in the northern state of Tamaulipas in 2010. He also has been linked to the death of David Hartley, who was shot in the head on Falcon Lake two years ago. Tiffany Hartley of LaSalle says she still wants to know how Martinez is linked and where her husband’s remains are. She says she hopes authorities have arrested the man responsible for her husband’s death because her family wants closure.
