Mexico: Canadian killed on honeymoon

After her husband is murdered on their honeymoon, a Winnipeg woman searches for answers about his death.

The day before her return home, Stacey Robos was informed of the death of her husband, Jesse Robos, by hotel staff in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico.

“It’s a gated community. It’s supposed to be incredibly safe,” he told CTV News.

The couple had a nine-day stay at the Catalonia Riviera Maya resort where they “made so many memories,” the woman said. On January 13, on their last honeymoon night, everything turned sour.

The newlyweds went to the hotel bar, but the woman went back to the bedroom while the man stayed.

According to documents obtained by CTV News, Jesse Robos allegedly got into a fight with two men and two employees. The robots are then intercepted by two employees. One of them strangled him to death, according to a police report.

When Stacey was woken up at 3am and taken to the bar, she was told her husband had passed away.

“As I was walking, I saw the police tape and a woman said to me, ‘I’m sorry to say your husband is dead.’ I immediately ran under the tape and started yelling at him to wake up,” the woman recalled.

Two persons aged 36 and 34 have been arrested in the murder case. They are still being held for questioning.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Global Affairs Canada said consular officials in Mexico are in contact with local police and are providing assistance to the family.

“For reasons of confidentiality, no other information can be disclosed,” it said.
