    So sorry to read this. There are so many people who live full-time in their RV's and "boondock."

    Such a sad story. It has been posted and discussed a lot on most of the RV'ing forums and camping Facebook groups that I belong to. There were many reports that their truck and trailer were seen crossing into Mexico soon after their disappearance and people wondered why the Mexican authorities would let it through with either no TIP (Temporary Import Permit) or somebody other than the registered owner of the vehicle applying for the TIP. Normally only the owner of the vehicle (not even their spouse) can apply and get one. A TIP is not needed to enter the west coast Baja area of Mexico, but it is all along the rest of the border all the way over to Brownsville. Whenever a vehicle with foreign plates passes a checkpoint, a valid TIP is the main thing the authorities (federal, state & local) are checking. I hope the family gets some support and answers from the Mexican authorities.

    Terrible Tragedy. So many people love to travel in RVs. I hope they find the truck and trailer and the person or persons responsible for the murder of two RV travelers.
    Condolences to their family and friends.

    Unfortunately, Evil is still alive and well in Texas. I lived in Nashua, NH, many years ago. Bad things happen to good people all over this world.

    If he's the culprit, I hope he gets jail time in Mexico.

    Hopefully Mexico will allow extradition with no conditions. If so, in Texas, one or both will probably dance with the needle.

    I appears justice will be done in this case. The couple whose lives were lost won't know, but their families may get some closure. Regardless of the outcome, the perps won't be free to continue their life of crime.
