American Surfers and Australian Brothers Likely Killed in Mexico Carjacking Incident

American Surfers and Australian Brothers Likely Killed in Mexico Carjacking Incident

The bodies of three American surfers and Australian brothers, Jack Carter Rhoad, Callum Robinson, and Jake Robinson, were discovered alongside their burnt white pick-up truck in Baja California, Mexico. Authorities believe that the trio was likely killed when they refused to hand over their car to a group of carjackers. The incident occurred during their surfing vacation at the popular surf spot known as La Bocana.

According to Baja California’s chief prosecutor, María Elena Andrade Ramírez, the local bandits approached the men at their beach camp and demanded their vehicle. When the victims resisted the robbery, the robbers, armed with a firearm, allegedly shot them. Disturbingly, the car that the trio was murdered for was not taken by the killers, who instead chose to set it on fire at the campsite. Shell casings were found at the scene, indicating the use of firearms.

The bodies of the three surfers were discovered at the bottom of a well at a nearby ranch. Firefighters took several hours to recover the bodies. While Mexican officials have not officially confirmed the identities of the victims, multiple sources have identified them as Rhoad and the Robinson brothers. The fourth body found was identified as the property owner who had been reported missing two weeks prior.

Jesús Gerardo Garcia Cota, also known as El Kekas, his partner Ari Gisel García Cota, and Jesus’ brother Cristian Alejandro Garcia were arrested in connection with the men’s disappearance. However, they have not been charged with murder. At the time of their arrest, all three individuals were found in possession of methamphetamine and other illegal narcotics. Ari Gisel Garcia Cota was also found carrying one of the surfer’s phones.

The Robinsons and Rhoad were last seen on April 27, enjoying their vacation along the Pacific Coast. They were reported missing several days later when they failed to appear at an Airbnb they had rented further south. Callum Robinson had shared social media posts of their trip, showcasing their activities and the white pick-up truck that was later found burned at the abandoned camp.

Callum Robinson, a former lacrosse player at Stevenson University in Baltimore, was mourned by the institution in a statement. He graduated in 2015 and went on to play for the Premier Lacrosse League.
