A joint Mexico-U.S. investigation linked a weapon used to blast a Mexican military helicopter out of the sky to a supplier from Oregon, federal firearms officials confirmed to The Courier Journal.
Eight Mexican soldiers with SEDENA, Mexico’s national defense, and one Mexican police officer died in the 2015 crash on a mission to arrest top U.S. target El Mencho, the world’s most powerful cartel boss. But the link between the incident and Portland, Oregon, had not been made public until now.
