Americans woke up on Tuesday to the horrific account of the execution of three mothers and nine of their children—all with dual Mexican/American citizenship—in Mexico about 70 miles south of the border by members of the drug cartels.
The families—17 people in all—had set out in three vehicles. The first vehicle was shot full of bullet holes and set ablaze—with the bodies of Nita Miller and four of her seven children inside. One person had tried to escape.
Ten miles ahead in two vehicles were Christina Johnson and her baby Faith, plus Dawna Langford and her nine children. They were fired upon from ahead. Christina jumped out, waving her arm to let the attackers know they were just women and children, but she was shot to death, as were the others.

Nita Miller and her children Howard (12), Krystal (10), Titus and Tiana (twins, 8 months)
All were shot and burned in their vehicle. Only ashes and a few bones remain. They are survived by father/husband Howard Sr., who was in North Dakota at the time of attack, and three siblings. Pictured above, Nita, Howard, and their twins

Christina Johnson was shot and killed. Her daughter Faith (7 months) was found uninjured in her car seat. It seems that Christina put it on the floor to try and protect her. Pictured left
Dawna Langford and her sons Trevor (11) and Rogan (2) were all shot to death. 
Hero: Devin Langford (13) uninjured, walked approximately 14 miles to La Mora to get help after hiding his bleeding siblings in the bushes and covering them with branches:

  • Kylie (14) years – shot in the foot
  • Cody (8) – shot in the jaw and leg
  • Xander (4) – shot in the back
  • Brixon (9 months) – shot in the chest, grazed on the wrist
  • Mckenzie (9) – bullet grazed her arm. Was sent by her sister Kylie for help when Devin didn’t return soon enough, got lost, and walked approximately 10 miles–about 4 hours in the dark–before she was found by the search parties.
  • Jake (6) uninjured.

The children needing hospitalization have been airlifted to a treatment center in Arizona. Click here forFull story from family member on Facebook.

The families are part of an offshoot of the Mormon settlements established in Mexico in the 1800s when polygamy was outlawed in the US (one member alive in the 1900s had 14 wives and 400 grandchildren). The victims were all U.S. citizens and members of La Mora, a settlement of less than 1,000 people about 70 miles south of the border towns of Douglas, Arizona and Agua Prieta in Sonora, Mexico.
Mexico’s Ministerial Agency for Criminal Investigations says it has detained an individual connected with the massacre. He was found in the hills of Agua Prieta with two hostages plus several rifles and ammunition. 

A 2012 documentary by Vice Media, “The Mexican Mormon War,” focused on their ongoing feud with the cartels, including the 2009 kidnapping of 16-year-old Eric LeBaron (related to the families killed on Monday) by a Mexican cartel demanding $1 million in ransom. The family refused to pay up, and Eric was eventually released. A few months later, a revenge hit was ordered on Benjamin LeBaron, and he and his brother-in-law were killed. 

Senator Mitt Romney’s family settled in that area, and his father George was born there. Romney’s cousin was kidnapped several years ago and held hostage until a ransom was paid. 
According to Vice Media, because the settlement is so close to the American border, they’re totally affected by our immigration policy and our war on drugs, and “If America sneezes, Mexico catches a cold.” 

President Trump responded to the news with several tweets offering help Mexico’s President to fight the cartels, saying they “have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!”
He also promised:

Mexico’s President turned Mr. Trump down. He said during his daily briefing on Wednesday that violence was not the answer or an appropriate response. That seems strange, considering the cartels have the upper hand.

  • Three weeks ago, Ovidio Guzman—the son Sinaloa drug lord “El Chapo” Guzman, was captured by Mexican security forces. They were only able to hold him for a few hours because a firefight erupted with members of the cartel. It got so bad, President Lopez Obrador ordered Ovidio’s release. It was a stunning defeat.
  • El Chapo has been jailed several times. In 2015, he escaped prior to formal sentencing through a tunnel under his jail cell. Mexican authorities were able to recapture him in 2016, and he was extradited to the U.S. in 2017. He was found guilty in the US in 2019, and given a life sentence.

At one time, El Chapo was housed in the same US facility where Jeffrey Epstein died. They were three cells apart.

  • Mexican authorities believe that the Sinaloa cartels have suffered fragmentation after the arrest of El Chapo. According to one official, they have been expanding near the border and are heavily involved in trafficking of immigrants and drugs into the US.

Another Connection?

A filmmaker who once worked for the leader of the NXIVM sex cult says there is a connection to the slain families. Mark Vicente told Slate Media that the documentary he produced ultimately became a recruiting video for NXIVM. It included an interview with Julian LeBaron, a cousin of one of the moms killed Monday, and leader of their community in Mexico.

Pray for these grief-stricken families, and for the healing of the injured children. Pray that this plan from the enemy will work out for their good. Pray for a secure border and that the Mexican government, that looks as if it has surrendered to the cartels, will have a change of heart.

Rom. 8:27, 28 – And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Jer. 29:11-13 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
