Fake Illegals and Friendly Fire

 

VALENTINE (Ben Caxton) — Evidence recovered from the scene of the January 6th shooting of two Florida men on a hunting trip near Candeleria indicates their wounds were caused by “friendly fire” the sheriff’s office said in a statement Friday. New Mexico hunting guide Walker Daugherty, 26, and Florida chiropractor Dr. Edwin Roberts, 59, were airlifted from the Circle Dug Ranch last Friday after the Sheriff’s Office responded a shooting incident. Daugherty and Roberts were both taken to El Paso for treatment. A GoFundMe page set up by a family friend claimed the two men were attacked by Mexicans trying to steal a recreational vehicle in which Roberts and his wife were sleeping. However Presidio County Sheriff Danny Dominguez disagreed at the time, saying “There is no evidence that suggests ‘cross-border violence”. Despite the lack of evidence and statements by the sheriff, the story went viral, blaming illegal aliens for the men’s injuries, even being posted on the campaign page of Texas Agriculture Comissioner Sid Miller. For his part Presidio County Sheriff Danny Dominguez told CBS7 News he believes Roberts was shot by Daugherty and Daugherty was shot by Michael Bryant, another hunter staying with them on the ranch. “A thorough search of the perimeter of the ranch house by U.S. Border Patrol involving an approximate 30 agents, including expert trackers, concluded that there was no sign of human pedestrian traffic leading to or from the ranch that night,” the Sheriff’s Office added in their statement. Although they are said to be certain of the conclusion, they have also submitted ballistic evidence to the DPS crime lab. The release concluded “Witness statements describing the sequence of events as well as evidence recovered from the scene directed us to the conclusion that this incident was a result of friendly fire among the hunting party with several contributing factors.”
