Mexican investigator in Falcon Lake case beheaded, Texas lawmaker says

CNN Wire Staff

(CNN) - The severed head of the lead Mexican investigator in the Falcon Lake case, Rolando Armando Flores Villegas, was delivered Tuesday in a suitcase to the Mexican military, Texas Rep. Aaron Pena told CNN.

But a spokesman for the attorney general of Tamaulipas state in Mexico said he had not heard the report.

"We have nothing official," said Ruben Dario-Rios, the spokesman. "We have not heard any report about one of our investigators being killed. We have over 1,000 investigators working for the state."

The report came a day after authorities in the Tamaulipas state attorney general's office gave conflicting information on whether authorities were pursuing a pair of suspects in the case of a U.S. citizen who disappeared during a sightseeing trip on the U.S.-Mexican border in South Texas.

    Bullying is next to impossible to fight. If a child stands upo for themselves 905 of the time the school investigators will say the teasing or actions go both ways. i know my kid is being bullied. the kid who started it initially admitted it and supposedly it stopped but now the "investigation" shows bullying both ways. convient since the kid they are trying to protect is a star football player. My son is now being teased for asking for help from his parents and since we reported it twice it has gotten worse. He does not dare say anything. I was told if my son is choses not to play in a game it was on him, even if he was too afraid of being hurt by his own team mates who verbally and textwise threatened to do so. there is no protection. We need external investigators or "team moms" to ensure coaches don't discriminate based on playing ability.
