3 Dismembered on their Vacation to Veracruz

Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Proceso


Xalapa, Veracruz : Three young people from Mexico City reported missing since December 1 were found dead Thursday night and their bodies dismembered inside bags in an abandoned truck on the federal highway #145 Sayula - German city.

Identified victims are:  Jonathan Eduardo Rocha Cruz, 23, a private security guard; Carlos Iván Reyes Ramírez, 31, of carpenter trade and Fidel Enrique Elizalde Flores, a 22-year-old merchant, friends who had gone on vacation to the region of the Tuxtlas, Catemaco and surroundings.

However, on Sunday Dec 1, a mechanical failure in the vehicle in which they were traveling forced them to stop and stay at a hotel in Acayucan, Veracruz, they went out to buy food and since then their relatives did not hear from them or know any more about them.

This Friday, elements of the State Regional Prosecutor's Office with detachment in the city of Acayucan confirmed that the dismembered corpses found Thursday night on the federal highway 145 Sayula - Ciudad Alemán correspond to young people from Mexico City.

Relatives of the victims said that the three youngsters intended to travel directly from the capital of the country to Catemaco, an ecotourism region due to its lagoon, its Nacinyaga reserve and the waterfall of El Salto de Eyipantla, however, they were  forced to spend the night in the municipality of Acayucan. 

Yesterday night, elements of the Municipal Police confirmed the presence of five black bags that gave off foul odors, on the bed of a Nissan NP300 truck with plates of circulation XU85804 of the State of Veracruz.

According to an employee of the Prosecutor's Office "minutes before losing communication, (the young people) sent photos to their families from inside the building where they would rest and then lost contact with them.

The Prosecutor's Office reports that one of the youths left a Suzuki 600 motorcycle parked, which was incidentally stolen from the parking lot.


The sexenio of morenista Cuitláhuac García Jimenez has begun violently. On the first day of his six-year term, three executions were registered, among them that of a dismembered girl in the center of Veracruz.

Now there is this case of the three friends from Mexico City who wanted to vacation in the region of the Tuxtlas and whose relatives have expressed their indignation.

For a decade, Veracruz has suffered a wave of violence due to clashes between the criminal cells of the Gofo Cartel, the New Generation Cartel of Jalisco, Los Zetas, Zeta Nueva Sangre, Zetas Escuela Viejo, Grupo Sombra, and independent groups of huachicoleros.


FYI: This area is a World Class Eco - Tourism Destination and it is just completely unconscionable the Mexico's own citizens cannot go and enjoy the cultural and biological wonders of this area, much of which is a protected under the Biosfer Reserva program.


CATEMACO, Veracruz:  Sea, waterfalls, ponds, rivers, lagoons, lakes, springs and tropical jungle in the same destination is the trip to Los Tuxtlas, a proposal that for the third time is organized by the civil association Enlace Ecológico, to link the inhabitants of these Veracruz municipalities with conscious tourism. The trip directs the economic flow directly into the pockets of the inhabitants of each place visited.

In just one weekend, the traveler can get to know: the waterfall of Eyipantla Falls, the beach and the Sontecomapan Bar, its mangroves, the Poza de los Enanos, the Benito Juarez ejido, within the Los biosphere reserve Tuxtlas, and the lagoon of Catemaco.

  1. Such a tragedy.
    Will not speculate reasons for these deaths. Sure in end its something so unconceivable for someone to loose one's life for. Rather, with no rational behind the motives (Stupidity).

  5. There is no fear in the minds of those who commit these savage crimes because the risk is so minimal that they'll ever be caught and prosecuted. To them it is well worth the risk to be sociopathic murderers.

    1. Both. Often there is a backstory that is hidden, but there have been many murders of purely innocent people.

  9. I am from Villahermosa TAB and my dad used to always tell me to avoid Acayucan because it was dangerous and this was years ago. I know these men did not have a choice but to stay there since their truck broke down. So terrible.

  10. why do you suppose they were killed? were they suspected of being rival cartel members? (unlikely) cops? (unlikely) or just easy targets to rob/kill? (likely)

  11. I love this area .so beautiful.It is know as a good witch area..Where spirit healers live..A usually peaceful area.
    I live in Merida Yucatan ,Merida is selling itself as a peaceful place in Mexico..And , it is.
    I think US should legalize ALL drugs and stop these killings. I will be happy when marijuana is legalized in all of US an Mexico.
    These gangs are just like those of prohibition of alcohol times in the US.
