Cheryl Orange narrowly escaped the fatal kidnapping by a drug cartel in Matamoros, Mexico, thanks to a missing photo ID that stopped her at the US-Mexico border.
The other four friends, including McGee, were kidnapped by armed gunmen after crossing the border and were later found at a drug cartel “stash house”.
Two of them survived, while the other two were found dead.
