Hot Aussie brothers and an American gone missing in Baja California

They're quite done for, aren't they?

[quote]Jake and Callum Robinson failed to arrive at holiday accommodation in the city of Rosarito. It's understood they were surfing and camping at the popular surfing spot Punta San Jose near the city of Ensanada. They were believed to be travelling with Jack Carter Rhoad, who is an American citizen and is also missing. Callum is a Type 1 diabetic.

Baja California state – Reconsider Travel

Reconsider travel due to crime and kidnapping.

Transnational criminal organizations compete in the border area to establish narco-trafficking and human smuggling routes. Violent crime and gang activity are common. Travelers should remain on main highways and avoid remote locations. Of particular concern is the high number of homicides in the non-tourist areas of Tijuana. Most homicides appeared to be targeted; however, criminal organization assassinations and territorial disputes can result in bystanders being injured or killed. U.S. citizens and LPRs have been victims of kidnapping.

One of their phones lit up an hour's drive from where they went missing. A 25-year-old frau was discovered to have it, along with drugs, and was arrested. I'm thinking the cartels definitely got to them.

Isn't Perth a surfing heaven? Aside from all the sharks, that is. Why would you go to somewhere as dangerous as Baja to do what you can safely do at home? Shame on the American for not giving them a clear picture of that area. Should have just taken them to Cali instead, asshole.

R37 I remember that case and wondered whether the currently missing Aussies fought back too. But the older crime took place in a remote area in Sinaloa, on the doorstep of the Sinaloa cartel although the killers didn't seem to be members of the cartel.

If these surfers don't tuen out to be shark food then they were kidnapped. Kidnapping in Mexico has moved from targeting wealthy people who have learned to travel with security, to just about anyone viewed as having anything. My brother and his friend were victims in Tijuana but not murdered.

"Mexico today suffers from so-called “express abductions.” The offender could be an employee at a bar or a taxi driver who notices a person sporting a good watch or designer bag. They’ll scare the victim with a weapon, force them to withdraw all the money they can, and then dump the victim on the street.If criminals see something valuable, they’ll target you — “all they want is quick, easy money,” said private investigator Jay Armes."

R42 said it. After reading 'Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life' you'll wonder how any of them live long enough to grow old. If you don't drown this is what happens to you:

The Gold Coast was an object lesson in how I was destroying my body through surfing. Looking around at Australians who spent a lot of time in tropical sun for which they were genetically unprepared—most were of Northern European ancestry—I could see my own sorry medical future. Every other surfer, even teenagers, seemed to have pterygia—sun-caused cataracts—clouding their blue eyes. The scabby ears and purple noses and scarily mottled arms of the middle-aged were fair warning: basal-cell carcinoma (if not squamous-cell, if not melanoma) ahead. I already had pterygia myself, in both eyes. Not that I took any preventive measures, or that surfing in colder places was necessarily any less damaging. My years in the freezing ocean in Santa Cruz had given me exostoses—bony growths in the ear canal, known as “surfer’s ear”—which were now constantly trapping seawater, causing painful infections, and would eventually require three operations. Then there was the usual run of surf injuries: scrapes, gashes, reef rashes, a broken nose, torn ankle cartilage. I had no interest in any of this at the time. All I wanted from my body was for it to paddle faster and surf better.

They may have gotten kidnapped and resisted that wouldn't be a healthy thing to do. The cartel is ultimately about business. Business does not want the tourists to leave.

Latest update (article attached):

On Friday morning, Baja California Attorney-General María Elena Andrade Ramírez told reporters three Mexican people had been arrested in connection to the case.

It is understood police were able to make the arrests after one of the brothers’ mobile phones was turned back on, and pinged a local mobile tower.

A woman was found in possession of the phone as well as some illicit drugs.

She was arrested along with two other men.

A burned out car was found on a ranch in the Santo Tomás area after the ranch manager called 911 on Thursday (local time), according to local media TalkBaja.

A check of the vehicle’s VIN reportedly identified it as belonging to one of the three missing surfers. The men were said to be driving a Chevrolet Colorado with the Californian number plate 70189W1.

Three abandoned tents were discovered south of the Ensenada region and local authorities have searched hundreds of square kilometres of land in the surrounding area.

Let's be real for a second. People – tourists and locals alike – don't regularly disappear in Australia the way they do in Mexico. Nor do countries issue the same stark travel advisories for Australia. If people assume the worst about Mexico, it's because you have a greater chance of getting murdered there than if you go surfing in California or Portugal. Whether you're killed by a cartel member or a low-level criminal is beside the point, the end result is the same.

[quote]Mexican here, terribly sorry about this, we don't know exactly what happened, but it's on the front pages which in itself is very rare, we've had almost 200,000 deaths from cartel violence in the last 6 years and only in rare occasions like this where the victims are foreigners do they make the news, we are both sick of this and can't seem to find a way to eliminate these sort of violent/criminal acts as politicians are in bed with cartels, so if you dare go against the grain you end up murdered (about 20 or so political candidates have been assassinated just this past couple of months leading up to the upcoming election).

[quote]Sigh, as a Mexican actually living in Mexico. Please, stick to the very touristy areas if you visit. Go to Cancun, México City, Puebla, Oaxaca... If you do soft drugs or hard drugs... don't do that here. It's not worth it. Don't do any sexual tourism either, not only it is disgusting, but it can lead you to trouble with the Cartels.

[quote]I was with two mates and we left Tijuana and went down to Rosarito. We couldn't get a taxi back so we decided to just walk. A local pulled over and drove us back to our hotel in Tijuana. He was absolutely furious at us, he kept saying we didn't know how badly this could have turned out for us and how stupid we were.

Nope, says nothing about a drug deal. In Mexico you really are a target if you are not from there. It's gotten worse over the last 20 years to the point no sane person would drive there from the American side to a small town or city without high risk of getting robbed or murdered just some some cash or a cell phone. The only way to do it is to fly directly to the city or take a cruise ship. Once you go off the main grid you are easy pickings.

Because their dead bodies were found in a burned out car in Mexico and literally zero other evidence (to our knowledge) points to a drug-related death other than the suspects who were apprehended over what, 7-14 days later that had drugs on their person?

I own a house on the other side of Mexico. Unfortunately the cartels are there. And they came because the Tulum tourists had to have their drugs. People sometimes ask if I’m scared to go down there. Of course not. I don’t do drugs. I don’t buy them or sell them, and I’m not going to start a new cartel. A few years ago a couple of female tourists were killed during a rival shootout at 1am. They were knowingly hanging with cartel guys. They weren’t stray bullets or caught in the crossfire, those guys know exactly who they want to shoot.

I've posted about this before and got shit from some posters but fuck it, it's true and those posters were contrarian morons who didn't know shit.

My brother lived in Baja for work, just outside Tijuana on the beach in a really nice condo. One night he and a co-worker were having a night in town and went to the ATM. It was on a side street. Suddenly a van pulled up and they were grabbed and thrown into a van. I can't remember if my brother said they had guns or not I assume they did or my brother would have fought back, he's big and hotheaded. The drivers took their money and drove them out into the desert. My brother started cussing them out and his friend who had lived in Mexico longer told him to shut the fuck up or they were taco meat. The robbers finally threw them out at some point and they walked back.

The fact that the Aussie's car was missing made me think it was a similar type 'express kidnapping' and probably not cartel related. The incident with my brother happened in 2003 when Baja was one of the safer states in Mexico.

R121, all Mexican presidents since the 1970s have received funds and logistical support from ciminal organizations, and these criminal organizations are part of the CIA's shadow financing network, so this happens with the US government's support.

Moreover, the Mexican federal police and army are mostly crooks themselves, and there is a shockingly cordial relationship between them and drug cartels. Removing them from policing duties cannot have harmed at all, as many times they only contributed to increase the volatility of situations, to the detriment of law-abiding civilians.

Also, Obrador is hated by the political establishment in Mexico, because he has exposed their scandalous levels of corruption by simply using the funds that used to disappear, to improve and expand existing infrastructures. Their thievery has been shown beyond all doubt, and they are furious.

As for the three surfers, I am sorry to say that I don't feel an ounce of pity for them. It takes a particularly hopeless type of imbecility to go to an extremely violent, crime lord-controlled country and expect nothing to happen to you by virtue of being part of the Anglosphere - especially because they were doing things that they could have easily done in safer environments, but were far too stupid, self-centered and whimsical to realize that there's a reason why so many Mexican people are desperate to leave that sewer of a country.

R39 provides a very good example of how life is in Mexico, unless you happen to leave in exclusive expatriate enclaves where security is very high. However, safety comes at a high cost in third world countries, and many incidental tourists are far too accustomed to civilized environments to understand that fact... Also, many are also downright idiotic, and end up paying very dearly for it.

Jesús Gerardo Garcia Cota, alias El Kekas, and his partner Ari Gisel García Cota have been charged after police found four bodies at the bottom of a well on a ranch in northern Mexico. Cristian Alejandro García, the brother of Kekas, was also charged.

All three of the suspects were in possession of an assortment of methamphetamines and other illegal drugs at the time of their arrest, according to Zeta and Talk Baja.

The trio was arrested during two police operations on Wednesday, May 1 - with 23-year-old Ms García Cota reportedly found in possession of one of the missing men's mobile phones. Baja California state Attorney-General Maria Elena Andrade Ramirez said a murder investigation had commenced and indicated investigators believe the three men were killed in an attempted robbery.

'When they tried to get the vehicle, the victims opposed the robbery, the robbers were armed with a firearm and apparently shot the victims,' she told 7News.

Shell casings were found at the campsite were the three men were last seen, a surfing spot known as La Bocana at Santo Tomas, local media reported.

Prosecutors have confirmed three people - two brothers and a 23-year-old woman - who were arrested earlier this week have now been charged with a crime equivalent to kidnapping on Friday.

This is almost certainly exposing me to the inevitable Datalounge eldergay “racist, homophobic, misogynistic, ex-convicts, alcoholic, “dingo got my baby” Australians” pile-on. I’m Australian, I surf and I travel a lot, as do most Aussies including my parents’, my and my offspring’s age. So this story resonates. I’ve been to Mexico a couple of times, but never camping in Baja (not my thing) just Mexico City a couple of times and, of course, Tulum. I’ve surfed in other countries (Indonesia, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Wales, Portugal and USA) but it’s often too much hassle taking boards, wetsuits etc on international flights. Plenty of waves back home, anyway. But when I see posters who have no fucking idea going on about “surfers” being drug-taking shark-dodging risk takers I can only laugh at how parochial some of you are, and how almost proud of it some of you are. When I surf at home, the car park is usually full of Audis, Beemers and Land Rovers. The surfers are fit, obviously (it’s a tough sport) and the whole age range from grommets (kids) to oldies like me. It’s hardly risk-taking, hardly left of centre and hardly a bunch of meth-smoking renegades.

The YouTubeer Foresty Forest, a Canadian hiker/mountain climber was camping in Mexico when he was abducted. At gunpoint they forced him into their vehicle and took him to their camp. There was another abducted tourist at the camp. The criminals got their pin numbers and drained their bank accounts and drove off without them the next morning. It would be a rough time wondering all night if you were going to be murdered.

Any speculation as to why all of the histrionics are coming from Australia only, with seemingly not a peep from the family and friends of the American? Is it because he wasn't as beautiful? He was still a person.

by Anonymousreply 235May 6, 2024 3:59 AM

Any “histrionics” aren’t coming from the family and friends of the Australian victims, who are in transit to Mexico to identify their sons’ bodies. One “have you seen them?” posting on Fb doesn’t constitute “histrionics”, in my opinion.

Anything you see up thread calling out stupid ill-informed people pontificating on a subject about which they know nothing could be called “histrionics”, if you’re one of the idiots being called out.

As far as the family and friends of the American guy, I wouldn’t want to conjecture. If only some of the posters up thread had the same sense of propriety.

I'm not buying the resisting story from the killers. All three victims were shot in the head. As mentioned upthread, that's an execution. If you're robbing several people and it goes pear shaped it's unlikely your aim would be so precise. Maybe the victims were considerably larger than than the killers which would be intimidating even if they didn't put up a fight. And claiming they fought back makes the murderers look a little less culpable.

I go to Los Cabos often as my mother is Mexican and my parents own a beautiful ocean view condo. The complex is secure with guards. However, whenever I go I always get a very eerie feeling at night. I will triple check that all doors are locked. Even then, it's a bit unsettling. Not too far away cartel members were hung up over an overpass.

One evening I walked to the highway grocery store and by the time I was done shopping it was dark out. I crossed the highway and when I started walking down the long side street towards our condo, suddenly it felt very dangerous. I was very afraid being outside alone at night with nobody around.

Cabo San Lucas is one thing because its very populated and tourists are everywhere. Its clear, though, whose in charge of that place. There are drug dealers downtown on the street who will openly ask you if you're looking.

I avoid any area which isn't full of tourists. Mexico isn't the country where you get off the beaten path. Go to Canada or something if you want that experience. Doing that in Mexico is asking for trouble. I'm not surprised these guys thought they could handle it though.

Personally I avoid all isolated roads and small towns at all costs.
