Two Canadian citizens, one of whom was allegedly being sought by Interpol on fraud charges, have been found dead from knife wounds in the Mexican Caribbean tourist town of Playa del Carmen, local authorities reported on Tuesday, June 21.

According to prosecutors in coast state of Quintana Roo, where Playa del Carmen is located, the bodies of the male and female victims had been discovered one day earlier inside a condominium that they had been renting.

A third person was also found with them, apparently injured by knife wounds.

None of the names of the victims have yet been released.

Canadian authorities are currently investigating the case and working with local police.

Playa del Carmen has, in recent months, been plagued by a growing incidence of violent crimes involving foreigners, most recently in January, when two Canadians were killed at a hotel, apparently by drug cartel hitmen.
