 On a FB video 4/18 by TV Isla Mujeres, the reporter says the CFE (Federal Electrical Commission) transformer fell and personnel with the municipal Department of Civil Protection are cleaning away the oil from avenue Rueda Medina. The taxista says it fell about 20 minutes earlier. No one was injured in the incident. Screenshot from TVIM video--

 This is one of the most-photographed vistas on the isle, admired by visitors from all over the world and cherished by residents. Many are concerned and unhappy that apparently a restaurant is being constructed at the site.Photo by Isla Mujeres al Dia. 


 Yesterday--IM Noticias reports that two suspects are in custody who were allegedly involved in the execution-style murder on Thursday night. Areas of two buildings have been secured where authorities found large amounts of what appears to be marijuana and large guns. One house is located in Ampliacion la Gloria & the other is near the Community Hospital. Officials clarified that only specific rooms are secured, and neighbors living in other quarters have access without problems. Two people escaped by jumping out of the back of one of the houses during the operation.

It is reported that the murder victim was an islander and his body has been turned over to his relatives. Of the three people detained following the incident, one was a homeless man who alerted the police and the two suspects who were arrested include a 16 year-old. The investigations continue.
