In the wake of international media coverage of last week’s murder of a Canadian expat whose body was found on the side of the Merida-Cancun highway, Yucatan officials are emphasizing that the crime did not take place in Merida and the alleged killer is not a Yucatan native.
Elements of the new State Police Investigation Unit executed the arrest warrant obtained by the Attorney General (FGE) against J.C.L.M. for alleged involvement in criminal acts in which Canadian photographer Barbara McClatchie Andrews, 74, was murdered.
The prosecution presented sufficient evidence before the appropriate judge, who after analyzing them, granted the order requested by prosecutors the same day.
The possibly criminal acts occurred, allegedly, on 30 September, when the deceased was transported from Cancun, Quintana Roo, to Merida aboard a passenger vehicle hired in Cancun; according to the investigations, the alleged murderer is the driver of that vehicle and is originally from Veracruz state.
After the possibly criminal acts occured, the body of the deceased was found on the side of the Merida-Cancun highway, a few kilometers before reaching the capital. The main focus of the investigation is robbery as a motive for the crime.
Thanks to good coordination and combined efforts of the various police agencies of the state, investigators were quicly able to locate and apprehend the alleged assailant, who has already been made available to the authorities and is waiting to resolve his legal situation.
