SAN DIEGO — The accused kidnapper of a San Diego private investigator appeared in federal court Monday, 10News reported.
Humberto Iribe allegedly lured private eye Richard Post to Mexico in August 1998, according to authorities.
Post was brutally beaten and tortured. The Mexican government said Iribe was paid $50,000 to kidnap Post.
Authorities said they believe Iribe worked for Kimberly Bailey, who is now serving life in prison for her involvement in Post’s kidnapping and slaying.
Bailey was first profiled on 10News for selling “Bio Frequency” machines that could vibrate away diseases.
The scam was profitable and might have been one of the motives for the killing, authorities said.
