National Hispanic Heritage Month: David Ortiz

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month I’m featuring a Hispanic missing person every day from September 15 to October 15. Today’s case is David Jacquez Ortiz Jr., an 18-year-old who disappeared from Silver City, New Mexico on October 31, 2010. He went out to go trick-or-treating and never returned.

Ortiz is missing under unclear circumstances, but his family is convinced he met with foul play. They said he had plans for the future and they don’t believe he would have left on his own. The most recent press I can find on him is this 2016 anniversary article.

    He seems a bit old to be going out trick -or-treating for Halloween. Espeially in this time frame.

      Lots of teenagers and young adults trick-or-treat. It’s better than getting trashed on some substance or other and vandalizing houses and cars, another popular Halloween passtime.

    Over here, only under 14 trick or treat, 18 year olds only go sometimes to look after younger siblings
