The executed men had been arrested several times in the U.S. for selling narcotics outside a school.

On Wednesday, March 8th, it was revealed that the Americans kidnapped and executed in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, had a criminal record that included drug distribution and sale.

According to the website Arrests.org, the foreigners Shaeed Woodard and Zindell Brown – who were killed on Friday – had been arrested on several occasions in Florence County, South Carolina.
While the American survivors of the kidnapping, Eric James Williams and Latavia “Tay” McGee, also have records in the United States.

It should be mentioned that so far it is not known if the Americans were carrying out illegal activities in Matamoros.

According to the information, on September 28, 2022, Woodard was arrested for distributing and selling crack cocaine outside a school.

Three months later he was arrested again on similar charges, while in 2019, he was also arrested for violating his probation.

Brown, in turn, was arrested for possession of cocaine, marijuana and hashish on June 17, 2015, and on July 21, 2019, he was arrested for domestic violence.

Willams also has a criminal record for selling drugs near a school, while McGee was accused by her 8-year-old daughter of slapping her in public after the mother tested positive for methamphetamines.

The reason for the trip to Matamoros was for McGee to undergo plastic surgery (tummy tuck operation).

The bodies of the two deceased Americans were at the Forensic Medical Service of Matamoros, a place that is still guarded by the Mexican Army, and will be sent to the US in the coming days.
