Family's mysterious death at luxury Mexico resort

Family's mysterious death at luxury Mexico resort

"Ashli Peterson, a family member, posted on Facebook Thursday night that the family was missing, and as of late Friday morning the post had been shared almost 100,000 times".

A family of four from Iowa died while vacationing in Mexico. Medical examiners in Mexico are working to determine the precise cause of death, and Peterson said that USA authorities are present at the site of the medical examination.

Free speech advocacy group Article 19 said in a recent report that Mexico is the most risky country to practice journalism in Latin America, with violence against reporters comparable to countries at war, such as Syria.

Officers made contact with the State Department and a welfare check was done at the condo where the family was believed to have been staying. "We'll work through this together". Local police in Iowa made contact with the US State Department before Mexican authorities checked on the family at the coastal Caribbean condo, where they were found dead.

In posts on social media, family members said the Sharps left the United States last week and had been expected to return on Wednesday.

Autopsies are being performed in Mexico. Peterson's initial Facebook post acted as a valuable source of information, as she revealed the family was supposed to be at a Southwest Community College basketball game in Danville, Illinois, on Thursday.

Amy Sharp's sister, Renee Hoyt, told the Creston News Advertiser that the last anyone heard from the Sharps was on the 15th.

"An investigation is now ongoing and includes representatives of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico", the Mexico Tourism Board said in a statement.

"Exercise increased caution in Mexico due to crime".

Newsweek has reached out for comment from family members on the incident. I consider them friends.

But "they never showed up at that water park to meet them", Weland said.
