Appearing on“Fox & Friends: Weekend”with host Ed Henry on Saturday, Meyer remembered his son a year after his tragic death and delivered a message to the American people.
“We’ve learned a lot about grief, learned a lot about ourfaith. But, we’ve kind of made a commitment to warning Americans of the dangers there,” he said.
“My son was murdered in Playa del Carmen, a city of 148,000. In the first three months of this year, they had more than one murder per day in that resort community which, supposedly, is a safe one,” said Meyer.
“I believe that Mexico has kind of descended into a state of tribalism where the government doesn’t have control, and I feel very sorry for the Mexican people. But, they really need help because they can’t get it from their police, their military…the corruption is rampant in Mexico,” he told Henry. “Though, they find that it’s cheaper to cover up their crime than it is to solve it and, as a result, a lot of people are dying.”
“I just don’t want anyone else to die in Mexico — particularly Americans,” he concluded. “I urge all Americans that are considering a vacation down there: Do your homework.”
