Four US citizens kidnapped in Mexico ID’d as friends from SC traveling for ‘tummy tuck’


The four US citizens shot at and abducted in Mexico were identified by family members Monday as a group of friends from South Carolina.

Latavia “Tay” McGee, Shaeed Woodard, Zindell Brown, and Eric James Williams — who remain missing — had traveled to Mexico for a cosmetic medical procedure when they were abducted on Friday, according to relatives who spoke to ABC News and The Associated Press.

“This is like a bad dream you wish you could wake up from,” said Brown’s sister Zalandria Brown. “To see a member of your family thrown in the back of a truck and dragged, it is just unbelievable.”

She said her brother had two friends who had accompanied a third pal to get a tummy tuck surgery.

McGee’s mother Barbara Burgess, 54, told ABC News that she was concerned about her daughter’s trip to get cosmetic work done and warned her not to go.



That was the last time she heard from her daughter.

“Her phone just started going to voicemail,” Burgess told the news station.

The group had crossed over the southern border from Texas into the notoriously dangerous city of Matamoros in Tamaulipas when their white minivan came under fire and they were grabbed by gunmen.

A shocking video of the purported abduction posted online shows men in bulletproof vests pushing a woman into the flatbed of a white pickup truck before carrying a man and throwing him into it.
