Face book post by Jeff Grant on "BahiaDeLosAngeles.info" on facebook. The bad news is true. Ray Ball and Jo Butler were murdered in their home south of town while trying to stop the theft of their fishing boat. Their bodies were found inside their home, along with that of their pet dog, but a baseball bat was found outside the house indicating the couple was marched back into the house and murdered. This does not bode well for the town. Violence against Americans has been escalating in the last few years with little or no response from authorities. The town elders and governing officials MUST do something quickly to solve this crime or dire consequences will follow Additional: No info on the type of boat. Reports state that it got stuck in the sand. Speculation that the 2 assailants took off in two cars. No real facts, no suspects. I'm just sharing this because I've been going to the Bahia for many years and this is a real shock to me.
