Two American Teens Tortured and Shot Execution-Style During Visit to Mexico


A pair of California teens were found tortured and shot to death in Tijuana after going into Mexico to visit a friend, a report says.

San Diego residents Christopher Alexis Gomez, 17, and his friend, Juan Suarez-Ojeda, 18, were found murdered in a housing complex in Tijuana on Sunday, November 25. The two had entered Mexico to attend a barbecue in Ensenada, 50 miles south of Tijuana, AOL reported.

But the pair never made it to Ensenada, according to Katheryn Garcia, a cousin of Gomez’s.

When the two failed to appear at the party, the boys’ families were alerted by others at the party. Family members quickly urged police in Tijuana to look for the boys.

Family members also drove to Tijuana themselves to aide in the search.

By Sunday the two were found along with a Mexican friend. All three had been tortured then shot to death, Tijuana police said.

Police found them after reports of shots fired in a housing complex.

Officials have no motive for the shocking act.

“Everyone is devastated,” Garcia told the media. “This just feels so unreal.”

“They’re monsters,” she said of her cousin’s killers. “Who does that to three young boys who have their whole lives ahead of them?”

“He was the most selfless, kindest boy ever … This shouldn’t have happened to him,” Garcia added.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Gomez and for Suarez-Ojeda.
