Cancun minor arrested in death of 16-year-old beaten, raped

Cancun, Q.R. — A man has been arrested in the death of a 16-year-old teenager who was found beaten and raped in a vacant Cancun lot in May.

Christian N was detained during the night hours of June 2 after the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for Attention to Crimes against Women issued a warrant for his arrest. The man was taken into custody on Kabah Avenue in Region 248 of Cancun.

The State’s Attorney General’s Office issued a statement saying that they have evidence to secure his arrest, adding that witness participation was key to locating Christian N. Although the State’s Attorney General’s Office has not released the age of the man arrested, they have said he is a minor.

The body of a beaten woman was found on May 20 in a green area of Cancun. At the time, authorities reported that the deceased was a 17-year-old woman, noting she suffered extensive injuries including lesions and bruises on her face, arms, legs and knees. She has since been identified as 16-year-old Amairani N.
