Jeff Banta, 46, of Nevada, Sean Anderson, 47, and his wife Sandra, 48, of Idaho, walked out of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge shortly after 9:30 am. About 90 minutes later, the last protester, David Fry, followed suit, but only after vowing "liberty or death" and having threatened to commit suicide.

The fight erupted following a dispute over control of the prison between two rival members of the Zetas drug cartel, Rodriguez said.
