An investigation is underway into how Arlington firefighter Elijah Snow died Monday while vacationing in Cancun, according to Mexican authorities.
On Twitter, Mexican authorities said an “investigation folder” has been started in the death of a man from Texas in the municipality of Benito Juárez in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.
“The circumstances in which the events occurred are being investigated,” according to the social media post from Fiscalía General Quintana Roo, which is the State Attorney General’s Office for Quintana Roo.
“The body was located in a bathroom window” at a hotel, which was not the resort where Snow was staying, according to the tweet translated from Spanish.
His cause of death has not been released. Family members believe he was murdered after possibly being kidnapped, according to media reports.
Elijah Snow’s wife, Jamie Snow, told family members her husband had been found dead Monday morning while they were staying at a Cancun resort, and she was told he had possibly fallen over a wall, KTVT-TV reported. The family did not believe that explanation, and hired a local attorney who obtained crime scene photos that suggest Snow was beaten to death, according to KTVT-TV.
The couple was at the resort celebrating their 10-year anniversary, according to news reports. The name of the resort has not been released by authorities.
KTVT-TV first reported Thursday that Elijah Snow was found dead after the couple’s first night on vacation.
The television station reported that the couple had a few drinks at the hotel bar and decided to head back to their room, but Elijah Snow stopped and went back to the bar while his wife went to their room and fell asleep.
Jamie Snow went searching for him Monday morning when he didn’t return to their room, and she was told by someone that he had been found dead.
Randy Elledge, Snow’s father-in-law, told the TV station that it appeared that Elijah Snow was beaten and possibly suffocated.
