Douglas man kidnapped, found slain in Sonora

DOUGLAS – Police said a 19-year-old Douglas man whose family reported that he was kidnapped over the weekend has been found slain in Agua Prieta, Son.

Douglas police said Alejandro “Alex” Abril was strangled and found in a vehicle with the bodies of a 15-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy. Both were Mexican citizens.

Abril’s family reported him missing on Saturday, saying he had been kidnapped from a popular Agua Prieta nightclub, police said.

A police statement released Wednesday said family members told officers that Abril may have had ties to a drug and human smuggling organization. Police said say they have sketchy details of the investigation now being conducted by Agua Prieta Municipal Police.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
