  • Staff Report 

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.

She was part of a group of American childhood friends who traveled to Texas so that one of them, Latavia “Tay” McGee, could undergo a tummy tuck procedure.


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.
