This episode of “Eyewitness News Extra Time” discusses the kidnapping and murder of four American tourists in Mexico.
Two Americans were killed and two others were discovered alive in a rural location near the Gulf coast following a shooting and abduction that was caught on film during their cosmetic surgery road trip to Mexico, officials said Tuesday.
