Property records show that a man arrested on manslaughter charges after his 11-year-old son was thrown overboard from a boat and killed by the vessel is a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in Mexico.
Records obtained by The Associated Press show the full name of the man police identified as Javier Burillo is Javier Burillo Azcarraga. He is a wealthy property developer known for lavish hotels and restaurants in Mexico.
Javier Burillo is the son of Carmela Azcárraga Milmo, sister of Emilio Azcárraga Milmo and daughter of Emilio Azcárraga Vidaurreta, founder of Televisa.
Tiburon Police Chief Michael Cronin said on Monday September 16th, that the real estate developer is a well-known and liked member of the Tiburon-Belvedere community but Cronin wouldn’t give any other details about him or the incident.
Burillo was being held on $1 million bail but jail records showed he was released Monday afternoon.

Officers arrested Burillo on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter with a vessel, willful harm or injury to a child and operating a boat while under the influence.
