In 2011, a businessman by the name of Carlos Gutiérrez fell victim to a vicious attack by drug cartels in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
For months Gutiérrez, who lived in the northern state with his wife and two children, was being extorted by the Juárez cartel for up to $10,000 a month. He made the payments continuously, but eventually could not keep up with the high demands of the cartel members.
