LA SALLE, Colo. (AP) - The wife of a man believed gunned down as he jet skied along the Mexico border says she intends to speak out about the violence plaguing that region.
Tiffany Hartley spoke to reporters after arriving back in La Salle Saturday evening.
She told authorities the couple were sightseeing when her husband was shot Sept. 30 by gunmen who ambushed them on the Mexico side of Falcon Lake, where pirates have robbed several Americans this year. Authorities have not found David Hartley's body.
She tells KUSA-TV that she wants to be a voice for people who live on the border and are afraid to speak out because of the drug trafficking violence.
