Did any of them claim to work for the CIA or claim to be CIA assassins working on US soil? Because there are a surprising amount of people who say that and tend to believe it, but they always end up being gun smugglers, violent thugs, or just trying to get information out of someone without having credentials. There was another group of people that were hunting a pedophile in the area and killed the wrong guy. It wouldn't surprise me if these people are suffering from paranoia or hysteria after overexposure to some bad information.
