PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Medical student Jessy Pacheco is back in the U.S. after he disappeared last week in Mexico.

Although he is from Arkansas, his family said he lived in Phoenix up until a few weeks ago.

His cousin said he was in Arizona for about three months for rotations.

Government officials in Mexico said Pacheco and a classmate went to a club called Strana with two women Saturday night.

Officials said they were waiting for an Uber near the club when a group of men shot and killed Pacheco's classmate.

They don't know what happened to Pacheco after that.

A Mexican governor said that Pacheco was found safe and flew back to Dallas. He was with his mother.

An investigation is underway.

Daddy Dummy does Mexicans in Arkansas surprise you. You’ve been gone a few days how was your cross burning retreat?


What's up sackbreath. I went on vacation again, 20% business 80% vacation. I try to be out of AZ as much as I can in the summer. Had a great trip, cool weather, fresh air, beautiful scenery. Mendocino County, Napa area, Santa Cruz (area) beach. Refreshing, rejuvenating. Boston next. 💯

Who cares if he has Arizona ties ? Looks like he messed with the wrong people. Not too smart to do that in a sh ithole country.
