Body of missing Canadian found near Barra de Navidad

I just want to say there is a message in this.  Ron did not get hijacked on the highway.   He made a stop where he shouldn't have, flashed money where he shouldn't, or who knows  ..... don't get too relaxed in Mexico and especially when by yourself.   Mexico is not Margaritaville as some would have us believe

Body of missing Canadian found near Barra de Navidad

Tuesday, November 06 2012 16:31 GR Staff

Sources tell the Guadalajara Reporter that the body of a man found in wasteland near the coastal town of Barra de Navidad Tuesday morning has been identified as Ron Lloyd Mackintosh, a Canadian expatriate who was reported missing on October 22.

A source at the Barra de Navidad police station told the Reporter that a municipal patrol found the body about one kilometer from the center of the popular beach resort, near the turnoff to Jaluco.

He said either a family member or friend had been taken to the scene to identify Mackintosh, who originates from British Columbia. Other sources confirmed that a friend of Mackintosh identified him at the site, noting that the body was tied to a tree.

A forensic team was still working at the scene mid-afternoon Tuesday.

Mackintosh was last seen around 5:15 p.m. on Sunday, October 21 on Calle Gomez Farias in Melaque, where he dropped off a friend in his black, B.C.-licensed 2008 Jeep Patriot. Friends say he intended to drive home but never arrived. His girl friend reported him missing to police on Monday, October 22.

This is one of those stories that will always be without defining details, I fear.

Afraid you are right. I just assume that things like this happen when people aren't being careful enough

A friend of a friend of mine, this man was not into drugs and was in a serious, loving relationship. A great person with a great soul. It is possible he was followed, or seen pulling out large currency from his wallet. Do not always assume that they brought it on themselves, or into Drugs/Alcohol/Women. Family and friends read these posts and it is extremely disrespectful to assume such without having ever met the man. Give your head a shake.
