Nothing but bad news seems to be coming out of Mexico these days.
Earlier this week, we reported on the death of two Americans related to a kidnapping that involved two additional victims.
Today, reports surfaced of a Canadian woman that was found dead at a Mexican resort, reports the New York Post.
Her death, unlike the American victims, does not appear to be at the hand of the cartel, reports Fox News.
Last week, Kiara Agnew, 23, arrived in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, with her boyfriend. He has been identified as Ryan Friesen, 26. The two were staying at the Grand Sunset Princess Resort and checked in on March 2.
On March 3, it was reported that a man had been taken into custody after "a lifeless woman was found with possible marks of violence in a hotel located in the Xcalacoco neighbourhood."
The Canadian government's Global Affairs Office has confirmed that it was Friesen who had been taken into custody and that the dead body that was found was Agnew.
Global Affairs Spokesperson Charlotte MacLeod stated, "Officials are providing consular assistance to the families and are in contact with local authorities.
"No further information could be disclosed due to privacy considerations."
There were no signs of any problems with the couple, quite the contrary actually.
Agnew's aunt, Katlyn Levesque, stated, "She has been counting down to this trip. It is shocking. We want to know what happened. She was a beautiful, wonderful person inside and out. It's unfair that she was robbed of her chance to experience life to the fullest."
The couple had been dating for about 18 months, reportedly a hockey player for the Dawson Creek Canucks.
There has been no official cause of death reported as of yet, but we will update if needed once more details become available.
