Deportees kill five in Tijuana
Three men living in river canal alleged to have murdered multiple people
A group of three men, who were deported from the United States this year after serving prison time, have been arrested in connection with five Tijuana homicides. The men, Bricio Alberto Marroquín, Francisco Álvarez Guerrero, and Víctor Manuel Domínguez Ramírez, were arrested on Thursday, July 11.
According to authorities, the men had been living in the Río Tijuana canal and selling methamphetamine. The men are all from southern Mexico and are alleged to have killed four men and one woman in recent months. The victims are all believed to have lived in the canal as well.
Local governments have pleaded with U.S. law enforcement for years for notification when deporting dangerous criminals back to Mexico.
