From The Blaze: Chained to a bed in one of Mexico’s most notorious prisons, Marine veteran Jon Hammar is seen shirtless with a look a despair on his face in a new photo sent to his family from an anonymous Mexican email account.

“His eyes look a little lost,” Hammar’s mother, Olivia, told Fox News Latino.  ”It doesn’t look like him. I feel like my blood pressure is through the roof.”

Hammar and a friend were detained by Mexican authorities in August for a gun-related incident. The two men had crossed the border and provided the paperwork for the weapon they were carrying, an antique shotgun. However, police eventually impounded their RV and jailed both men, claiming it was illegal to carry that type of gun. Hammar’s friend was later released because the gun did not belong to him.

Fox News Latino has more details on the newly released photo:

The photo shows Hammar in solitary confinement inside the Matamoros state prison, nicknamed CEDES. A scraggly looking Hammar is seen shirtless and barefoot with a beard, jean shorts and with his feet over what appears to be grey crocs. He is sitting on an old twin-sized mattress in a room with chipped walls. A gallon of water and a refrigerator are seen to his right. Hammar is staring at the person taking the photo and does not appear to have any visible injuries.

It is the first photo released of Hammar since he and a friend were detained by Mexican authorities in August.
