Mexican Cops Arrest Husband of Slain Spanish Woman

MEXICO CITY – Mexican authorities said on Tuesday that they have arrested the husband of a Spanish woman found murdered last month.

Police have sufficient evidence to charge Jorge Fernandez in the death of Pilar Garrido, Tamaulipas state Attorney General Irving Barrios told a press conference.

The cause of death was manual strangulation, he said.

Fernandez contacted police on July 3 to report that Garrido, 34, had been abducted the previous day as the couple and their 1-year-old son were returning to their home in Ciudad Victoria, the state capital, after a vacation in the Gulf coast resort town of La Pesca.

The husband told authorities that two armed men intercepted the family on the road and snatched Garrido at gunpoint.

Barrios said Tuesday that after noting “several contradictions” in Fernandez’s account, investigators “redirected the search” and the new focus led on July 26 to the discovery of skeletal remains in Villa de Casas, Tamaulipas, where Garrido was last seen alive.

DNA testing confirmed that the remains were those of the Spanish citizen, who had lived in Mexico for about three years, the attorney general said.
