Despite more than two weeks having passed since her death, police are still not releasing the name of the murder-by-drowing victim whose body was found in the Gulf of Mexico near the beach at Telchac Puerto.
The Yucatan Attorney General (FGE) has officially confirmed that murder was the cause of death of the woman whose body was found by a fisherman Sunday Oct. 2 near Telchac.
Police are seeking for questioning a male subject from Mexico City whose identification cards were found on the victim’s person. Police sources who requested not to be identified said the man may be a suspect in the slaying or possibly another victim whose body still has not surfaced.
Based on investigators’ evidence, it was determined that the 25-to-30 year-old woman was murdered by drowning. Her legs and arms were bound and she was apparently pulled out to sea with a clothes line attached around her waist.
Although the victim has been identified, the FGE has maintained secrecy surrounding her name and place of origin. Although speculation initially arose she could be an expat who lived in Merida, the sources said she was more likely a non-Yucatecan Mexican with Caucasian-like features. Possible motives for the murder could include a crime of passion or drug-related circumstances.
The sources said police have confirmed the woman was not pregnant, conflicting with initial reports that she was in an advanced state of pregnancy.
So far, the body has not been claimed and remains in the building of the Forensic Medical Service (Semefo).
Shorlty after the body was found, Yucatan Attorney General Ariel Aldecua Kuk said the body showed signs of violence, and that the victims’ feet were bound.
He said investigators are working to identify the perpetrators.
The attorney general said then investigations are well under way and in the coming days could have concrete results.
The incident came on the heels of the strangulation murder of Canadian photographer Barbara McClatchie Andrews on the Cancun-Merida highway Friday Sept. 30. According to the prosecutor, despite that the two crimes occurred in a span of less than 72 hours, Yucatan remains the state with the lowest homicide rate in Mexico
“We have figures similar to last year,” he said.
In relation to 2014, 2015 saw an increase of about thirty percent of intentional homicides.
