(WSYR-TV) — NewsChannel 9 has learned that a Baldwinsville man and his girlfriend were found murdered in Mexico.
Juarez Police have identified them as Pat Landers and Karla Baca.
According to police, Baca was a physical education teacher in Juarez.
KTSM TV reported that the couple was driving a black Jeep with New York license plates when they were attacked.
Dave Labarge, a close friend, said he last spoke with Landers this past Saturday.
“Pat always put his family first, his son was the most important thing in his life…” said Labarge.
Landers and Baca were leaving a phone shop when they were attacked on Tuesday. The couple had crossed the border from the United States to Mexico as the woman’s tourist visa was expiring.
Investigators said suspects fired at least 20 gunshots.
