I went down to Mexico on the Mayan coast in 2000. Nice place. But getting Mexican Police officials to investigate an international murder is kinda like hiring Michael Jackson as your nanny. So this couple from Ontario goes down to Mexico to attend their daughter's wedding and they are found dead in their hotel room, throats slashed, the day after the rehearsal. Interesting how Mexican authorities fingered two single mothers from Thunder Bay staying at the same resort as the alleged throat slashers. Apparently a trail of blood in the hallway led police in that direction. We'll never know because hotel staff cleaned the whole mess up so as not to alarm the other tourists. In any case these suspected throat flayers were able to leave on time the next day oblivious to the whole affair because on that first day police thought it was an organized crime hit.
It's laughable at how quickly Mexican police determined from the start that the crimes were committed by someone from outside the country, most likely Canada. They don't know shit and they just started contacting the RCMP a few days ago. Yeah we're a nation of throat slashers we are.
A year ago, another Ontario man, Shawn Potts, 23 (a kid really) drowned in Cancun on spring break. Official cause of death from Mexican Authorities after they do an autopsy- Drowning.. Yet, when his body gets back here to Canada, it's missing a ton of blood. Cause of death, blood loss? From what? Hello??
Ridiculous. A colleuge at work had a family member who rented a car in Cancun years ago, only to have it stolen the same day. They called police who told them exactly how much it would cost to have the car delivered back to them(kinda like getting fined for getting your truck stolen). When they got back home a police freind told them that the Mexican cops split this fee with the car thief (most cases affiliated with the actual rental company with a spare key and everything).
I hope tourism takes a hit. Appently Canadians spent $791 million in that country in 2004. If I ever go back to Mexico(not bloody likely), I'm not setting foot off the damned resort, and if i do, it's gonna be on a tourist bus.
Pissant country.. I wonder if the daughter will ever get married? Man....
