Canadian Charged In Death Of Gabriela Jaramillo In Cancun


TORONTO — Mexican media say a Canadian man is charged in the death of a 23-year-old woman at a Cancun resort.

The reports say the woman — who they identify as Gabriela Janeth Jaramillo — was killed on April 22, and had arrived a few days earlier to meet her 33-year-old Canadian boyfriend.

The Quintana Roo attorney general's office said in a May 5 release that a man — identified only as M.K. — was arrested on the way out of a hospital, where he had been since April 22.

The release said translators were brought in to inform the man of his rights and he was charged with homicide.

A spokesman for Global Affairs told The Canadian Press in an email that consular services are being provided to a Canadian citizen who has been detained in Cancun.

John Babcock says consular officials are in contact with local authorities to gather additional information.
