Something just doesn't add up - The Canadian couple murdered in a five-star Maya Beach resort during what should have been the joyful occasion of their daughter's wedding. Throats slashed. Right in their rooms. In Mexico. (I could say, 'I'm not making this up', but I don't want to trivialize the horror, so I won't.)
The Mexican authorities tell us they have everything under control, and they know that the evil-doers are apparently three Canadian women who took a flight home shortly after the gruesome murder.
But the story keeps changing, and Mexican authorities are not giving Canada officials much information. And there are a lot of unanswered questions: Why was there clerical bungling of certain hotel registrations? Was there really a lock-down after the discovery of the bodies? Why were so many of the hotel's guests allowed to leave without questioning? Why are the Mexican investigators so sure that it was these three Canadian women, and that it was an organized crime hit? Wouldn't this have been accomplished much easier with a few guns in Canada? Why travel to Mexico? And three women? Were they Charlie's Devils?
You don't have to be Columbo to get that niggling feeling that something ain't right.
CTV reports that Toronto coroner Dr. David Evans, who will take possession of the remains when they arrive in Canada this weekend, "expects any potential evidence will be contaminated, particularly if the Mexican funeral director has done preparation work on the Ianiero's bodies." That assumes of course, that the rumor that the bodies have already been cremated is false.
I smell a cover-up.
