Police responding to Bacalar highway accident find shot man inside rolled car

Bacalar, Q.R. — The body of a man was found shot to death inside his rolled vehicle by police who were responding to a highway accident. The car was located on its roof along a section of the Bacalar highway Thursday.

Inside the car, authorities found a dead man identified as Cristian N, who is reported to be a family member of a man kidnapped from the same area earlier this week.

According to the preliminary report, police collected several shell casings from the highway. The deceased man inside the car had been hit by the spray of bullets that caused him to roll his car.

Police who were responding to the reports of the rolled car initially thought it to be a car accident until they located the bullet holes in the body of the vehicle.

On Wednesday, a man identified as Cecilio B was reported missing by his family. The State Attorney General’s Office issued a missing person’s report. The man found dead in the car, Cristian N, is reported to be related.
