At least nine members of an American family, including six children, were killed in an attack in northern Mexico on Monday, the Mexican military has confirmed.
The family was ambushed by an armed group while traveling from Bavispe in Sonora state to the town of Galeana in Chihuahua state between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. local time, according to Mexico's security minister, Alfonso Durazo.
The area where the attack took place -- less than 100 miles from the Arizona border -- is of territorial dispute by several cartels, and it's possible the family's convoy of cars was mistaken for one of them, Durazo said at a press conference Tuesday morning.
Three women and six children were killed in the ambush, according to Durazo. Seven other children s

News outlets and horrible death are bad.
Nine U.S. citizens were killed in an apparent cartel attack in northern Mexico on a convoy carrying members of the LeBaron family, who are part of a historical Mormon enclave in the Sonora region, relatives say. The victims include three mothers and six children. They are members of the LeBaron, Miller, Langford, and Johnson families.
A relative has posted a graphic and grim account of multiple members of the LeBaron family being murdered in northern Mexico. The horrendous story was first shared on social media on Monday, November 4, by family members. “13 US CITIZENS KIDNAPPED AND BEING KILLED…” Kenny LeBaron posted on his Facebook page, adding that those slain included mothers and young children. Another relative, Jhon LeBaron, posted similar details. One surviving child, Devin Blake Langford, 13, “walked approximately 14 miles to LaMora to get help, after hiding his bleeding but living siblings in the bushes, and covering them with branches,” a family member wrote on Facebook.
According to NBC News, the victims include three adult women, Dawna Langford, 43; Christina Marie Langford Johnson, 29; and Rhonita Miller, also known as Rhonita Maria LeBaron, 30. Six children were also killed, family members say. They have been identified as Howard Miller, 12; Trevor Langford, 11; Krystal Miller, 10; Rogan Langford, 2; and 8-month-old twins, Titus and Tiana Miller.

Damn.. the media actually is suppressing this.. thank God for screen caps..
Ervil Morrell LeBaron (February 22, 1925 – August 15, 1981) was the leader of a polygamous Mormon fundamentalist group who ordered the killings of many of his opponents, using the religious doctrine of blood atonement to justify the murders. He was sentenced to life in prison for orchestrating the murder of an opponent, and died there.
He had at least 13 wives in a plural marriage, several of whom he married while they were still underage, and several of whom were involved in the murders.

Let me try:
" LeBaron’s brother was kidnapped by a local drug cartel in 2009, and the family defiantly refused to pay a ransom. The cartel eventually released the abducted man."

The problem is there's no way to tell exactly who is part of them. But otherwise I agree with you. It needs to be dealt with once and for all. I do believe there has to be a way to trace the money and find the people.
I like the verse that talks about Jesus ruling over the nations with a rod of iron.....maybe that rod has a hole down the middle and spits lead out of it or maybe he just swings that rod and smashes skulls with it......idk. But I wish he would hurry up and get here.

MSM strikes again.
Blame the woman and her alleged sex antics for her and the kids deaths - all because they can't bring themselves to be crticial of any Mexican.
It would be wall to wall coverage of the horror if the murderers were white and it would be Trump's fault obviously. Frankly surprised they have not already blamed Trump for being nasty to Mexican cartels.
The family members were U.S. citizens, but lived in a Mormon community in the Mexican border state of Sonora, according to another relative, Leah Staddon, who was born and raised in the same community but now lives in Arizona. She said her family, although American, has lived in Mexico for decades and they are all dual citizens. The area where most of the family lives, La Mora, is hard to access, and they were on a route they often use to run errands, LeBaron said.
About 200 shell casings of .223- and 77 mm-caliber guns were found on the scenes, Cordova said
