Update on December 20, 2022:
Mexican authorities have detained a woman and her daughter and her son-in-law. The woman’s first name was released as “Blanca” and she worked as a nurse for the recently deceased property owner who owned the apartment where the Tirado brothers were found. They were initially questioned as witnesses but they were eventually detained as suspects. Blanca and her family provided different statements to local police under interrogation, making her now the suspect behind the death of the two Tirado brothers and their 72-year-uncle and for holding the Tirado brothers’ aunt against her will. The murders are believed to be related to the decision that the property owner’s son would inherit the property. According to the investigation, Blanca stated that she felt she was the rightful owner of the property as the landlord’s caretaker and life partner before passing away. [El Financiero]
