Description

WFAA tells the story of Guillermo Ramirez-Peyro, a paid U.S. government informant who continued to participate in and witness "a five-month killing spree along the U.S.-Mexico border." The 12 murders occurred at a house in Juarez, operated by a cartel. Ramirez supervised the first murder and audio-taped it, but the government's reaction was not to reprimand him, but to tell him to stop making tapes. The government, which had paid Ramirez $225,000 for his services, never took action against him, even promising him $1 million more before this story broke.
