As reported by Novedades Quintana Roo, it was around noon last Wednesday, April 21st, when the two bricklayers were executed after being forcibly removed by armed men from the construction site of a hotel located on the mainland of Isla Mujeres.

This caused a strong police mobilization between the Riu and Grand Palladium hotels. First reports indicated that a group of four armed people entered a hotel under construction located on the Isla Blanca highway at around 12:42 p.m. and took two bricklayers out by force, took them to the bike path in front of the entrance of the construction site, and he executed them with two bullets in the head.

This is not the first time that this type of situation has been recorded with construction workers since there are already several who have been executed and others are missing in Quintana Roo.
