The naked and tortured body of a state tax employee, Rogelio Sanchez Jimenez, was found hanging from a bridge over the free road to Rosarito Beach on Friday morning at 6:00 a.m. A huge traffic jam developed as looky-loos stopped to witness the bizarre and terrifying spectacle.
The victim’s head was swathed in adhesive tape, and he was found hanging by a cable tied around his neck, his feet tethered by another cable. The corpse bore the marks of a hideous torture, including castration (his testicles were taped to his head). The victim was ultimately asphyxiated, according to medical examiners.
As soon as authorities began arriving on the scene, they began to surmise that the body was that of the government taxman, who was kidnapped on Wednesday morning near his home.
People living in the area could offer no accounts to investigators as to how the body ended up suspended from the bridge.
