The Mexican police have screwed up on the murder of two Canadians near Cancun. The police have accused two Canadian women from Thunder Bay for slashing the throats of Domenico and Annunziata Ianiero. Mexican authorities initially suggested the slayings were a professional job, but then backed down from that. They also quickly ruled out local involvement in the killings, even though other guests at the resort threw doubt on the thoroughness of the investigation in the hours and days after the bodies were found.
People were allowed to walk freely in the hotel during the investigation. The RCMP was called five days after the deaths and the bodies were exhumed before the Canadian coroner could examine throughly.
With the disappearance of Natalee Halloway last year in Aruba, Caribbean police authorities do not live up to North American standards and relations to other countries.
