The Sad Irony of a Kidnapping Expert Being Kidnapped
This unfortunately is not a headline from The Onion; it's a story from the Austin Statesman about the kidnapping of Felix Batista, a Cuban-American, Miami-based expert in kidnapping negotiations. Batista apparently worked for a Houston-based security firm and was invited by Mexican police to participate in a conference in Coahuila, a border town.
Batista was kidnapped last week by a group of armed men, but officials aren't sure who is behind the abduction.The FBI and Mexican police are working the case.
