Yucatan is coming out of the scourge of the coronavirus pandemic, but self-inflicted deaths continue unstoppable throughout the territory, and on Monday, May 16th, Mr. José Cruz MO, 43, was found hanging from the neck inside his property, in the city of Tizimín, Yucatan.

According to unofficial information, on Monday, May 16th, Mrs. Leonor C.B., 41 years old, returned to her home in the Los Aguacates de Tizimín neighborhood and found her husband hanging from the neck.

The woman had the scare of a lifetime and immediately called the Police.

The lady told the agents that her husband was addicted to “crystal” and that he had already expressed his desire to take his own life.

She indicated that last Saturday she argued with her partner, so she left the home and today when she returned she found José already dead.

The body was found in an advanced state of decomposition. In fact, the neighbors stated that there was a putrid smell in the area.

Elements of the State Attorney General’s Office arrived at the scene to carry out the legal proceedings.
