La Paz, Baja California Sur – This Monday, based upon the investigations by the state attorney general, it was reported that the 20-year old man, originally from Texas, was the victim of an attack planned by his former girlfriend, who erroneously believed that the American had kidnapped her daughter, so she planned the attack with her relatives.
The dead man, identified as Ismael Álvarez Terrazas, originally from Texas, USA, and who was beaten to death after being tied up and tortured for hours by relatives of his ex girlfriend, Militza Salas Salinas, who confessed being the intellectual author of the murder.
According to information published by El Jitomatazo, Tuesday afternoon, May 10, Militza Salas made a date with the victim at her home to speak with him, as the woman believed he was the main suspect in having kidnapped her 15 year old daughter.
When Ismael Álvarez Terrazas went to his ex-girlfriend’s home, he was surrounded her relatives, Víctor Tolentino Salas, Amadeo Rentería Salinas and Víctor Salinas and another person identified as Ángel Alain Meza Vega. They gagged and tortured the young American, hoping he would give them the location of the missing adolescent.
However, as the Texan had nothing to do with her disappearance, the attackers continued beating him harder and harder, including with golf clubs.
After leaving him unconscious from the beatings, those responsible saw he was no longer breathing, so they put him in the vehicle he came in, and dumped him at kilometer 116, near the Diamante Motel, where his body was found the next day, May 11, 2016.
According to the autopsy, the cause of death was brain injury and a fracture of the skull, caused by a heavy object.
Days after the murder, Militza’s daughter was found and said she was at a friend’s house and had nothing to do with Ismael.
When the police questioned Salas Salinas, she ended up confessing she was the intellectual author of the crime, as she thought the dead man had taken her daughter.
She also identified the people who had helped commit the murder, and described the details of how it occurred.
