The Texas family of a 36-year-old man spending his vacation in Puerto Rico is seeking authorities and people’s help to identify the suspect(s) who murdered him on a beach there.
The body of Christian Quezada appeared to have been beaten viciously when he was found by a tourist earlier this month.
Quezada was planning to end his vacation in Puerto Rico and come back home for his father’s funeral after learning about his death.
“We talked to him on Friday. Saturday, we couldn’t reach him,” the victim’s sister said.
The grieving family had to force local authorities to launch a homicide investigation after flying down to Puerto Rico to identify the body and see pictures of the scene.
“This was not an accident. I saw the pictures. I saw the place. This was a very touristic place…I knew that I had to do something. I couldn’t just be devastated and not do anything.”
She added: “We are begging the Metroplex, and our community here in Texas, and also out authorities to help us. To find and make sure that this crime is solved.”
