Man arrested in death and dismemberment of Canadian woman

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. – A man accused of dismembering his Canadian girlfriend and leaving her body in suitcases outside a Playa del Carmen transportation stand has been arrested.

The hearing into the death of the 36-year-old Canadian woman who was found dismembered and placed in two suitcases began yesterday. The grisly discovery of her body was found in April by local transit drivers.

The Attorney General of the State of Quintana Roo advised that a man has been arrested for the crime of murder against a woman who was named as his girlfriend and referred to only as L.A.

The Canadian woman lived in Akumal, which is where the murder allegedly took place. After reporting her disappearance, investigators found a trail that lead back to the man who is being accused of her murder.

The name of the man has not been released.
