The three victims were on a surfing trip near Ensenada, Mexico, when they were reported missing at the end of April after not showing up to their Airbnb.

Shortly after, Baja California Attorney General María Elena Andrade Ramírez announced an investigation into their disappearance had been launched.

It was later announced on Friday, May 3, that three bodies had been located in La Bocana, about 130 miles south of San Diego. The human remains were recovered from a 50-foot well.

Relatives identified the three men as Jake and Callum Robinson and Jack Carter Rhoad.

According to Mexican authorities, it’s suspected that the victims were killed after an attempt to steal their truck for its tires.

Another man and a woman remained in custody facing drug possession charges. Two other suspects are being sought in connection with the killings.
