Two Canadians were found dead with their throats slit inside a posh resort apartment in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the identities of the victims have not been released and police say multiple identities for a male victim were found in the room. That man was wanted on international fraud charges.
The victims reportedly had stayed in the area near Cancun and Cozumel for several months, but it was not clear if they were tourists or just hiding out.
Prosecutors say a security guard in the complex was also injured, though it was unclear if that incident was tied to the murders.
The area has ad its share of murder lately;
- In March, a British man was shot in his convertible while traveling with his daughter
- In January, two other Canadians were killed when they were caught in crossfire
- Last October tourists from Germany and India died under similar circumstances
Though popular with international tourists, the area is a well known for drug cartel activity.
