Bakersfield car dealer found beaten to death in Mexico resort town, prosecutors say

California

SAN JOSE DEL CABO, Mexico (AP) – Prosecutors in the Mexico resort town of San Jose del Cabo say they are investigating the death of Jose Arredondo, who was apparently beaten to death.

The Baja California Sur state prosecutors said Tuesday they were called to a condominium after someone reported a dead body.

It said the body “showed signs of blunt force trauma.”

Media outlets in California reported that Jose Arredondo ran a car dealership in Bakersfield, California.

However, the prosecutors’ office said the 58-year-old victim was from Mexico City.

The confusion may have arisen because Arredondo was reportedly born in Mexico.

Baja California has seen killings decline sharply after a violent spike in 2017.
