    This sounds like something from '24'. Although there is a sense of justice, I can't bring myself to say that I'm happy they will die. I'm not. I'm sure they are suffering now, if they have not already succumbed to the radiation poisoning.

    “...The people who handled it will have severe problems with radiation,” he said. “They will, without a doubt, die.”

    You took the words right out of my head. We need to know WHO took this truck and for what reason.

    Part of me thinks, if they knew what they had,they never would have opened it though.

    Maybe just petty thieves that got more than they bargained for?

    I'm leaning towards petty thieves - well, not 'petty' because LE seems to think they were after the crane. But I don't think they were after the radioactive materials, or they wouldn't have opened it and then left, IMO.

    Because the perpetrators were probably not protected when the opened the container, they likely received high doses of radiation that would be fatal within days.

    I am hoping that they can determine if all of the cobalt has been accounted for/recovered.

    And then there's this family, who picked up the empty canister and carried it home, wanting to sell it for scrap metal. (The radioactive pellets had been removed by the thieves but were found not too far away.)

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/12...ave-radiation/

    PACHUCA, Mexico – Federal police blocked access Friday to a central Mexico hospital where six people were reportedly admitted with a possibly lethal dose of radiation.

    An official familiar with the case confirmed Mexican media reports that the six have been admitted to the general hospital in the city of Pachuca and may have been exposed to a stolen source of cobalt-60......more......

    This is sad. The thieves were up to no good but I hate to think of people having radiation poisoning. It's a terrible way to go.

    These must be the thieves. Six? Wow. The driver and other man said there were (at least) two that beat them and took the truck. I guess there were more waiting.

    I feel sorry for them, but I am glad that it seems they may have been found. I've been watching - thanks for posting!

    Here's an update:

    Official: 6 hospitalized in Mexico test negative for radiation poisoning

    ....All lived near where the dangerous material had been, though Copca said only one showed symptoms such as nausea and headaches consistent with radiation poisoning.....

    It's not clear but it seems that these may be the suspects after all. When released, they were released into custody, not released to go home.

    6 suspects cleared of radiation poisoning in Mexico

    ....A Hidalgo state health official told the Notimex news agency the six, who live in the area, apparently had contact with the cobalt-60 about 12 hours after the truck was stolen....
