The Canadian fatal-stabbing victim in Chicxulub Puerto has been identified as Roger Corbett, a 48-year-old father of four children from Victoria, British Columbia.
A second Canadian man has been arrested in connection with the death, according to reports on Canadian television networks CBC and CTV News.
A source close to the investigation told CTV News that Roger Corbett, a father of four, was murdered on Sunday in Chicxulub Puerto, a small beach town on Yucatan’s Gulf of Mexico coast.
Family in Victoria have confirmed to the CBC that Roger Corbett was killed while on vacation in Mexico.
The CBC reported that his mother, Mary Corbett, said her son was in Mexico for a vacation when he was stabbed at a home in Chicxulub.
She said few details have been shared with the family.
“They were there and a fight broke out,” she said. “It’s all hearsay.”
“I don’t know how to explain it. It’s a shock to me that anybody would do something like that to him,” his mother said.
She said the accused was a friend of her son’s, but she did not know him. In the meantime, the family is trying to come to terms with losing a man described as generous and caring.
Global Affairs Canada released a statement confirming that a Canadian man had been murdered in Mexico and that consular officials were assisting the families of the man killed and the man accused in his death.
“We offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the Canadian citizen who has been murdered in Mexico,” Global Affairs said in the statement.
Global Affairs Canada also said that consular officials have been in contact with Mexican authorities to gather additional information on the case.
