Families of three Americans want answers after their loved ones were found dead inside of an Airbnb in Mexico City.
Jordan Marshall and Kandace Florence, both who went to high school together, were vacationing in Mexico City. Marshall’s friend Courtez Hall, visited.
Florence was on the phone with her boyfriend on Oct. 30 when she expressed feeling sick and said something wasn’t right. The call was disconnected and Florence wasn’t able to get back on the line.
The boyfriend called the Airbnb host for a welfare check and upon checking, all three guests were dead.
Marshall was a teacher and Florence started a candle business. Both were 28 years old. Hall was a teacher in New Orleans.
Families have been in contact with the U.S. embassy trying to get their bodies home and find out what happened to them, according to My Twin Tiers.
The family has been in Mexico City trying to get their belongings and are met with frustration.
The U.S. embassy gave WDSU a statement regarding the investigation.
“We can confirm the death of three U.S. citizens in Mexico. We’re closely monitoring local authorities’ investigation into the cause of death. We stand ready to provide all appropriate consular assistance. Out of respect for the privacy of the families, we have nothing further to add at this time.”
