American killed may have been partially beheaded in Playa del Carmen

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

Two days ago there was a killing of a foreigner in Playa del Carmen.  Initially reported as a Canadian, however, he was an American, 27 year old Taylor Kristopher Meyer of Hermosa Beach, in Cancun to celebrate a friends 30th birthday.

Friday, when an altercation occurred  in Lazaro Cardenad park in Colonia Colosio.   When police arrived they discovered Meyer dead with a stab wound to the chest.

Today a suspect was taken into custody.  Armed with an arrest warrant police have taken Hilario N into custody, he is accused of Meyer’s murder. 

The murder reporting by the press has been almost nonexistent, and plagued with inaccuracies.

Initially reporting the victim was Canadian, at a bachelor party, with transvestites and had crack in his possession.  None of those allegations are accurate or confirmed by anyone.  The rumors may have come from municipal police to protect tourism.

It was also reported he was partially beheaded, but from the image it is not possible to determine either way.

Unconfirmed accounts by witnesses said Meyer was robbed and attacked, his wallet, cell phone and shoes were taken.  Meyer attempted to chase after the perpetrator and was killed. 

Witnesses immediately called the emergency number who were confused by where the location of the stabbing was and was "greatly delayed".

  1. I was listening to the radio here in Chihuahua while taking a long drive. The radio announcer had a reporter with him to be interviewed. The reporter said that the reporters were told not to report on all the violence ind crime here in Chihuahua. They did not want the rampant car thefts, murders, extortion and other crimes to be reported. They are really putting pressure on the reports with open threats. Because the government was afraid of losing more tourists coming to Chihuahua. I looked at my wife and said that I really feel the radio reporter and his guest were really sticking their necks out. Things are way under reported here. My neighbor just had his truck stolen from in front of his house about two months ago. Strangely all of the street lights were shut off that night. I asked him if he thought the thieves had turned them off. He looked at me and said of course not, I and everyone else know the police had them turned off. This is what you have to deal with here. But it goes on with impunity.

    1. I go to Chihuahua very often, two-three times a month, and we don't have any problems, but I've been told to stay out of Cuauhtémoc until they clear out CDS. There are an excessive amount of confrontation that go unreported there.

      “we don't have any problems”

      Nobody has problems.... Until they have them.

    1. Actually they also thought he was from Costa Rica. And they said he was hanging, with 4 transvestites, who is telling the truth, soon they will tell Chivis not to report nothing at all.

  5. How many more need to be killed before its declared unsafe?
    Mexico has transformed itself to a continuous behavioral issue.
    From reading many comments who offer advice of what not to wear while in Mexico for safety reasons. One needs to ask oneself then why go to a place where one has to dress like a bum to enjoy Mexico's surroundings?
    I'm sure vacationing consists of tranquilty and dressing for the
    appropriate occasion when required.

    Doubt that an apparel store dedicated to Bums are around. Even thrift stores would be considered as an upgrade.

    Such a shame.
    Then again him possessing crack did not make it any better. Rather, a low- life to engage in such.

    Should have stayed home!

      He didn’t have crack, nor was he hanging out with transexuals.

      As for the rest, you are right.

  6. The victim I feel had little or no common sense as to wandering into hazardous territory. Remote barrios miles off of the tourist track featuring parties with lots of strangers. I won't do it in Lazaro Cardenas and I have lived here for decades. Being caught naked in a tiger's cage takes effort.

    I’m sure that those who always say that Cancun is soooo nice and safe unless you are asking for trouble would agree with this policy. Their intellectual disonesty knows no boundaries.

  10. Wow that is really sad.Not only do tourists have to worry about getting caught in the crossfire with criminals shooting each other but getting killed after a natural reaction to a wallet grab and chasing after him.I would do the same if I didn't see a gun and I'm a woman.Are the gangs branching out to robbing tourists or is this an opportunistic wallet grab because he looked vulnerable because he was loaded?

    1. Wow really you would do the same? Please please for your own sake don't ever travel or leave the house for that matter .In LA I've been robbed 3 xs at gunpoint and once with a knife, I came out alive all times . unfortunately this guy did not.....

  12. I know the guy is dead but couldn’t he at least be covered up??? The locals look like tourist staring at a Dead Sea animal on the beach... photo almost looks staged or something... the cop looks like a tour guide showing everyone a dead fish...
    Glad they caught the guy so quickly, I’m sure he’s the one that did it...

    1. Something is lot right, quick to catch a robber, but hard to catch other criminals, perhaps they just grabbed a buracho, from the street and pinned on him.

    3. This is not true! I saw their interview and they were called by the U.S. consulate in Mexico. they both said that is how they found out. and it was a quick call.

      They also said they have NOT spoken to the FBI they just asked that the consulate contact them. FBI cannot help. it is Mexico, the parents wanted FBI to conduct the investigation. they cannot. it's mexico not the U.S.

      Yes Mexican media notoriously lies, and are news directed. Yes it is about tourism. but to say "Mexicans lies' is offensive. I was contacted by a friend who gave me some info and I did my best even discounting untrue statements in the mexican media. you should be grateful. if you are a friend. which i think you are not. first you say you went to HS with him. then its your son.

      time to get off the blogs especially this one and spend more time with your three children. you caused me a ton of work with your ignorant rant last night and flood of comments. we are volunteers. give us a break.

  15. For years, I have been warning kin and friends to "not" visit any place in Mexico. Why? Because of stories like this and all the negative comments by people with first hand knowledge that follow such stories.

    IMO: In Mexico, crimes of violence are way under-reported and when they are , one is left wondering about their truth value.

    I totally agree with the person who just commented here and I think his/her comment bears repeating:

    So, yeah, I will continue to warn my "ignorant" kin and friends to avoid travel in Mexico...."Even if they think that knowing Spanish and are very familiar with Mexican culture and will be with Mexican friends or family. By "ignorant" I am talking about people who have little or no idea of what has been happening in Central America and Mexico with respect to the victimization of tourists. blaa, blaaa, blaaaa.

    1. I felt save in cdmx despite having any kind of police or private guards at almost each corner. Walking all over the city day and night.
      The same in Toluca and Guadalajara. Up and down from the morning until after midnight. Even with less police presence but sometimes .50 mounted on their pickup.
      Got drunk each night and made it safe home each night.
      Just follow some easy rules and you will be safe.
      I think they bragged around drunk and tried to buy some dope.

  22. Who cares about their tourism? Countries need to ban travel to Mexico until they finally get a grip on who actually runs the country. This war crap has been going on since 2006. Now it is not surprising to hear of heads being found outside of a vacation resort. A resort that may or may not be an investment of a cartel. What is a vacation being locked in a fortress anyway? While right beyond the walls could be 15 killings a night. Why go?

  23. Ive lived in playa. La colosio is not a good place for tourists. Unless you are with the locals or meeting someone you know. I definitely wouldn't let myself be led anywhere past calle 46 by a stranger. Which is probably what happened.
