CANCUN — Security officials in Cancún have temporarily suspended 20 municipal police officers who retreated as a mob advanced and attempted to lynch Russian national Aleksei Makeev last Friday May 19.
Also under investigation is the homicide of Carlos Eduardo Gutiérrez Gutiérrez, 20, allegedly stabbed by Makeev during the events that took place Friday.
Although not present at the time of the attacks, another man has been included in the investigation of the crimes committed against the Russian citizen.
On Monday, Rodrigo Castillo, a Facebook user who identified himself as an employee of the Attorney General’s office, took a selfie as he stood near the hospital bed where Makeev is in a medically-induced coma.
“Realize this,” Castillo wrote under the photograph, “we beat the devil out of this Nazi Russian. Hahaha. Will he respect us now or does he need another beating?”
That agency has since clarified that Castillo has never worked there but is now under investigation.
Makeev allegedly abused and taunted people on the streets of Cancún and uploaded videos of his actions to social media. The attempted lynching came in response.
