Mysterious American deaths in Mexico City have left 3 families searching for answers.
VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia — Families are hoping for answers after three Americans were found dead in a Mexico City Airbnb last month.
Nation News Reports: Jordan Marshall and Kandace Florence, who attended high school together in Virginia Beach, had been vacationing in Mexico City with Marshall’s friend from New Orleans, Courtez Hall. The trio was there for the celebrations surrounding “Dia de Muertos,” or Day of the Dead.
Kandace Florence’s boyfriend was on the phone with her on the night of Oct. 30 when Florence started getting sick, the family told NewsNation affiliate WAVY. She told him something wasn’t right. The two eventually were disconnected and he couldn’t get Florence back on the line. He then called the Airbnb host to do a welfare check, and authorities found Florence, Marshall, and Hall dead.
“To lose your child is one thing, but in a whole other country and having to maneuver language barriers and travel and trying to get his body home, it’s been a lot,” Marshall’s mom, Jennifer Marshall, told WAVY.
Marshall, a teacher in New Orleans, and Florence, who started a candle business in 2020, were both 28 years old. Hall was also a teacher in New Orleans.
The families of Marshall and Florence say they have been in contact with the U.S. embassy, working to get their loved ones’ bodies home and find out exactly what happened to them.
