On Saturday, February 22, 2014, Joaquim “El Chapo” Guzman was captured in Mexico City without incident. This was a coordinated effort by the US and Mexico. Extradition to the US is expected but mapped out yet. This is part of the surreality of the Billings murders. Far fetched as it may seem, it is inclusive. The Zetas, the cartel that took over the Gulf Cartel that was established in the Panhandle of Florida to the Panhandle of Texas, has been slowly consumed by the Sinoloa cartel. Sinoloa has been outsourcing with the Zetas for the last couple of years as well as taking out leaders. Now El Chapo is said to reign supreme over any drug trafficking from Colombia to North America and Spain. With him behind bars, the threat of territorial takeovers and uprisings is likely. Chapo has many enemies and this is the time for them to take his operation.
According to the FBI and DEA, the Billings murder are a product of this turf war. Knowing the expansiveness of El Chapo’s reach,”little ole Pensacola” may have more problems than they expect.
So with everything pointing to the fact the Billings’ were involved with cartels. Despite Morgan’s hot air, it is apparent that this is more than a home invasion robbery. I want to focus on the family. My interpretation of family are people who you grew up with, who raised you, day in and day out. Not necessarily blood but people who would put their lives down for you. Justin Billings doesn’t seem to feel that way about his parents. For that matter, neither does Ashley or Blue Markham. Byrd was funding Blue’s business; he was Ashley’s step dad that provided her with a more normal life than she’d ever had before. But none of these people are what they seem. Blue Markham was involved with this cartel according to everyone involved; he participated on Byrd’s behalf.
Let’s get this straight. Justin was in contact with someone on the fringe of the cartel minutes after the murder as well as days before. Blue Markham is in cahoots with Cab Tice, Hugh Wiggins and whatever evil they are peddling—drugs, guns, humans. None of these people are ever charged. Cab and Blue walk away from this crime without being thoroughly investigated. Hugh Wiggins tells the police NOTHING and walks away from an armory of federal gun charges plus whatever charges for covering up a murder after the fact.
DOES ANY OF THIS MAKE SENSE??
Think about this for a minute. The people closest to this family are not investigated; they gained all the estate. Why were they not looked at more closely? What kind of investigators don’t go to the heart of the investigation? It’s simple they were told to stand down. This case was much bigger than the murder of Byrd & Melanie.
