Baja attorney general confirms ‘highly likely bodies recovered are that of missing surfers from Australia and California’

SAN DIEGO (Border Report) — Baja California Attorney General Maria Elena Andrade Ramírez held a Sunday morning news conference where she confirmed the bodies recovered in a 50-foot well Friday are “highly likely that of brothers Jake and Callum Robinson of Australia and Jack Carter Rhoad of San Diego.”

According to Andrade Ramírez, the bodies were found in an “advanced state of decomposition” and DNA testing will be done to fully confirm the victims’ identities.

She said it appears the three men were victims of a robbery, and when they resisted giving up their truck, they were shot and killed, and then dumped into the well.

Andrade Ramírez says investigators believe the suspects came across the surfers who were camping near La Bocana, a well-known surfing spot south of Ensenada near the community of Santo Tomas, and saw an opportunity to rob them.

She says the assailants likely felt it was an isolated area with no cell service and “no witnesses.”

Two men and a woman are in custody and two others are “under investigation,” according to Baja’s attorney general.
