Mexican authorities have identified the bodies found in a well in Baja California northern Mexico as two missing tourists from the United States, officials said Monday.
The Baja California state prosecutor’s office said in a statement that the victims were identified as retirees Ian Hirschsohn and Kathy Harvey.
Their disappearances were reported to authorities on Sept. 2, the statement said.
Investigators searching an unpopulated area south of Ensenada spotted human remains at the bottom of the well the following day. Their bodies were recovered on Saturday, the statement said.
No information regarding the cause of death or motive was provided. The case remains under investigation. Authorities did not provide their hometowns, but local media reported they both lived in Southern California.
