FALCON LAKE, TX – It’s been two years since David Hartley was shot and killed while jet skiing on Falcon Lake with his wife Tiffany. Mexican police say they finally have the man they believe is responsible for the border attack.

Salvador Alfonzo Martinez Escobedo aka ‘The Squirrel,’ is a part of the Zeta drug cartel, and is allegedly the ruler of three Mexican states. This is a big arrest for the Hartley family who didn’t get many answers from American police looking for the culprits.

You might remember Tiffany was questioned for her involvement and many even blamed her for leaving her wounded husband behind.

Let’s just hope Mexican police can keep an eye on the squirrely squirrel. Apparently he’s also been the master mind behind several prison breaks.
