Mexican authorities are investigating how a Texas firefighter died while on vacation in Cancun, but the picture they are building is one of confusion.

Elijah Snow, from Texas, died last Monday. Police in Mexico in the municipality of Benito Juárez are said to have opened up an ‘investigation folder’ in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.   

‘The circumstances in which the events occurred are being investigated,’ according to a post on social media post from the state attorney general’s office for Quintana Roo, Fiscalía General Quintana Roo.

Snow’s body was ‘located in a bathroom window’ at a hotel but it was not the resort where Snow had been staying but about half an hours drive, or 10 miles away from the beachfront hotels of Cancun. 

So far, Snow’s cause of death has not been released but family members think he may have been killed after a possible kidnapping.  

Adding to the confusion, Snow’s wife, Jamie Snow, was told that her husband had in fact died after falling over a wall while at the Cancun resort where they were staying, but the family do not believe the explanation.

A local attorney managed to source photos of the crime scene that suggest Snow was in fact beaten to death, according to KTVT.

The couple had been celebrating their 10-year anniversary but Snow was found dead after just one night away. The name of the resort has so far not been released by authorities.  

The pair are said to have enjoyed a few drinks at the hotel bar before deciding to head back to their room whereupon Snow stopped and went back to the bar, while his wife went to their room to sleep.  

Jamie Snow woke up around 4am and went looking for her husband when he had not returned only to be told that he had been found dead having ‘fallen between the walls of the neighboring resort.’

Elijah Snow’s father-in-law, Randy Elledge, said that it appeared Snow had been beaten and possibly suffocated. 

‘You’re supposed to be safe there,’ Elledge said. ‘You’re at your resort, all inclusive, and have no intentions of leaving so you’ll be safe. And you’re not safe there.’ 

Snow was a firefighter in Arlington, Texas and had worked for the Fire Department for eight years.
