According to the Buscadoras por la Paz de Sonora collective, the man of American nationality emigrated from Mexico due to insecurity and decided to settle in Arizona.

“I wish the FBI would come in, because that's what we need. Because here there is no investigation, there is nothing. It remains in a complaint and that is not valid”, said the founder of Buscadoras por la Paz de Sonora.

The victim was traveling in a black Jeep Gladiator pick-up truck, model 2022 and Arizona license plates. His relatives denounced what happened to the authorities of both countries and they think organized crime is behind all this.
