U.S. Court Interpreter Killed in Mexico After Being Held for Ransom

Why Americans still go to Mexico and hang out in the Worst city there, Ciudad Juarez.
Americans are targets outside the United States, Unfortunately, and you put your life at risk when you choose of your own free will to go to these parts of the world that love to kill and exploit Americans.

A Texas court interpreter who was kidnapped this month was found dead in Mexico after relatives failed to pay a $10,000 ransom, authorities said.

Jorge Luis Dieppa, who worked as a Spanish interpreter at the U.S. District Court's El Paso Division since 2004, also worked as a part-time lecturer in the languages and linguistics department at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), according to a school spokeswoman.

Dieppa, 57, disappeared on July 5 in an apparent kidnapping and was found dead in Ciudad Juarez a day later, after relatives were unable to produce $10,000 ransom, according to news releases from the Chihuahua state prosecutor's office. He was discovered stabbed repeatedly and bound with duct tape, according to the releases, which did not identify Dieppa by name.
