‘Homicide’ file opened in Mexico


Mexican authoritie­s have opened what they’re calling a homicide investigat­ion into the hotel explosion that killed five Canadians last weekend, after the families victims filed official complaints.

Quintana Roo state attorney Francisco Alor said Thursday that three Canadian families have filed homicide complaints with Mexican authoritie­s, while two families have filed injury complaints.

Homicide investigat­ions are routine whenever there are unexplaine­d deaths, Alor said, adding that the official Canadian complaints put a further obligation on authoritie­s to open a homicide file.
