Investigators believe the suspect found his victims at strip clubs and bars in the Zona Norte area of Tijuana before luring them to motels. The murderer is "prone to criminal behavior, to reacting violently, and sociopathic," comparing him to infamous serial killer Ted Bundy, said the Baja California Attorney General Ricardo Carpio. He added, "Very similar to the guy known in decades past who got a lot of airtime and who went by the name Ted Bundy," according to The Sun.
A third victim identified as Elizabeth Martinez Cigarroa, 25, met the man at a bar in Tijuana where she worked as a dancer. She had informed her family that he had invited her on Valentine’s Day date. But after she met him, the 25-year-old allegedly disappeared until her body was on February 17 in Tijuana in the back of her abandoned SUV. She showed signs of having suffered violence, reported the police. The other two victims were identified as Karen, 28, and Jessica. The US citizen killer seduces women before luring them into a private setting, where he sexually assaults them before beating them to death said, Carpio.
An arrest warrant has been issued for the suspect. The FBI and U.S. Justice Department are collaborating with Mexican authorities to find and arrest the suspect, Carpio Sánchez said adding that he’s seeking the man’s eventual extradition to Mexico to face charges. "Without a doubt, we will capture him and transport him back here to Tijuana," Carpio concluded.
