Cancun authorities confirm suicide of Colombian woman

Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun authorities have confirmed the cause of death of a Colombian woman as suicide. On Thursday, the State Attorney General (FGE) released details of the autopsy report.

The report listed the cause of death as asphyxiation due to hanging. The woman identified as Daniela “N” was found dead inside her Cancun apartment on the morning of December 26.

An investigation has been opened into whether or not she was criminally connected to Samy Tamouro, a Canadian man who was killed in a targeted shooting in the same residential complex in mid-December.

In their statement, the FGE said “derived from the expert opinion carried out on the body of a woman of Colombian origin found on December 26 of this year in an apartment in the Puerto Cancún residential complex, it is determined that the cause of death was asphyxiation due to hanging.

“The expert study establishes that the woman’s body showed no signs of injuries or struggle. She remained in a vertical position, hands and feet showed a red-purple color, a cadaverous phenomenon present in areas of decline of the body.

“This autonomous body continues the investigations to determine if there was any criminal link between the deceased and Samy “N”, a Canadian citizen of Moroccan descent, who was deprived of his life in a gym located within this residential complex.”
