Pharr man found tortured, shot dead in Reynosa[South Texas/Mexico]

Going to these border towns to get drunk is like taking a vacation in the Gaza Strip. Not a very bright thing to do.

McALLEN - A local resident was found wrapped, tortured and shot execution-style in Reynosa on Friday, according to a Mexican news report released Sunday.

Ramiro Torres Hernández, 24, - a manager of a Burger King in McAllen - was found inside an abandoned vehicle's trunk in a rural field heading toward Rio Bravo in Ejido El Porvenir, El Universal wire service reported.

Tamaulipas state police identified Torres as a Pharr resident.

His visibly tortured body was wrapped in a blanket inside the trunk of a white 2000 Buick sporting Texas license plates, El Universal reported. He had been shot in the head.

Reynosa resident Javier Hernández García, 45, identified Torres as his nephew.

Hernández told authorities Torres arrived drunk in Reynosa on Wednesday at about 3 p.m. About an hour later, Torres went out to buy some more beer and never returned, El Universal reported the uncle as saying.

Mexican authorities were continuing their investigation late Sunday.
