In one week, second foreign visitor to Cancun ends his own life

Cancun, Q.R. — For the second time in one week, another foreign visitor to Cancun ends his own life.

On Saturday, a German man was found deceased in his hotel room with a letter to loved ones left behind. Hotel staff entered the room Saturday afternoon after repeated attempts to contact the man, who did not check out of his room, failed.

Upon entering, they found the 52-year-old man lying on the bed deceased. Police arrived at the hotel after receiving an Emergency 911 call at 4:21 p.m. for the Grand Crystal Hotel located at kilometer 8.5 of Boulevard Kukulcán.

Inside the room, authorities found several empty medical bottles and a handwritten note to his loved ones.

Paramedics confirmed the death while personnel from the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) arrived to do the corresponding investigation.

Less than a week ago, a 41-year-old Afghanistan man from the United States was found deceased after a 15-story fall from the RIU Cancun Hotel. That death was ruled a suicide.
