The search for the man believed to be murdered by Mexican pirates has taken a disturbing turn, the investigator in the case has been killed.
There's word from Mexican officials that his severed head was delivered to Mexican authorities in a suitcase. The Mexican prosecutor's office says the murder of Commander Rolando Flores is not related to the David Hartley case. Hartley's wife says he was shot last month as the two rode jet skis on Falcon Lake. She told investigators she had to leave his body behind to save her own life, his body has yet to be found.
