In the early morning hours of March 14, 1989, University of Texas at Austin student Mark Kilroy disappeared in Matamoros, Mexico. Kilroy, who grew up in Santa Fe, Texas, was vacationing on South Padre Island with friends for spring break. On April 11, American and Mexican authorities discovered Kilroy’s body, as well as the remains of 14 other homicide victims, buried on a ranch in Santa Elena, Mexico. Investigators later determined that Kilroy was kidnapped and ritually murdered by members of a cult who believed human sacrifice ensured supernatural protection for their drug-smuggling operation. Police arrested four cult members, but others—including leader Adolfo Constanzo, Kilroy’s alleged killer—fled to Mexico City. An international manhunt ensued, bringing the case worldwide attention. In this news segment for Houston’s KPRC-TV, broadcast on May 4, 1989, reporter Bill Pounders attends a Sante Fe town meeting where Mark Kilroy’s parents, James and Helen, propose anti-drug legislation.
