La Casita, Texas - On Thursday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has launched an investigation into Wednesday's armed kidnapping of Brandon Medina, 14, of La Casita. On Wednesday, Medina was kidnapped by two gunmen before 5:00 p.m. from his home, according to the Starr County Sheriff's Office report. The two suspects entered Medina's home and then forced him into an old model Dodge green truck and fled from the scene in less than a minute.
It is suspected that the gunmen might have illegally taken Medina into Mexico. No ransom or demands have been made yet.
Authorities later found the truck near the Rio Grande River bank. The truck was traced back to the owner who reported the truck stolen from Houston.
