Hotel security guard arrested in Cancun Hotel Zone murder

Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun police say they have arrested Miguel J for a murder that occurred in the Cancun Hotel Zone May 29.

In a press release, the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Quintana Roo reported his detainment after obtaining an arrest warrant. Police from the homicide unit say that Miguel J was with the now deceased, identified only as E.J.S.G.U., in a hotel room located at kilometer 13.5 of the Kukulcán Boulevard, moments before his death.

They say that EJSGU had been living in the hotel for a year and a half. He was found deceased inside his room on the morning of May 29. The defendant, Miguel J, worked as a security guard at the hotel.

Although the detainee attempted an alibi noting that on the dawn of the events, armed men entered the accommodation center, the evidence collected was sufficient to implicate him in the murder.
