Two kidnappers, the sons of Mexican “high rollers” who were themselves kidnapped by the Mexican cartel five years earlier, sequestered the son of a wealthy dancing horses owner in Colorado.
The other brother blamed his criminal behavior on drug abuse and loyalty to his sibling.
The Denver Post reported that Jonatan (21) and Raymundo (24) Maldonado-Salgado kidnapped their victim from a porn store on August 30, 2016.
Mexican drug cartels kidnapped the Maldonado-Salgado brothers at gunpoint in 2011.
His only excuse for kidnapping someone and subjecting them to treatment similar to what he had sustained from the Mexican cartel, was caused by drug abuse and loyalty to his older brother, the Post reported.
