Three black friends found dead in Mexico on Day of the Dead

Three African American Friends were mysteriously found dead while staying in their Airbnb in Mexico City over Halloween weekend, with their deaths eerily coinciding at the country’s infamous Day of the Dead festival.

Now their families want answers.

Kandace Florence and Jordan Marshall, both 28, and Courtez Hall, 33, traveled to Mexico in late October to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, according to the news outlet WAVY.

Concerned friend called Airbnb host in Mexico City after she complained about illness

The outlet reports that Florence’s boyfriend, who was not taking part in the trip, was actually on the phone to her on the evening of October 30 when she said she was feeling ill and told him something was wrong.

The friend’s call was then cut off and he was unable to reach Florence from there.

He eventually approached their Airbnb host to conduct a social check, during which local police eventually discovered the lifeless bodies of Florence, Hall and Marshall.

Their families have since said they have been in contact with the US Embassy in Mexico and have already personally traveled to Mexico City to seek answers about the deaths of their loved ones.

“Mexican police have not been very forthcoming with information,” Jennifer Marshall, Jordan’s mother, told the broadcaster WTKR. “Plus, the language barrier was incredibly difficult.”

Family says they were unable to retrieve his personal belongings amid concerns over future Mexican officials

Meanwhile, Marshall’s family has yet to recover his personal belongings, including his wallet and laptop.

Kelvin Florence, Kandace’s father, has expressed concern that no Mexican officials have contacted the deceased’s families to update them about the deceased.

The bodies of Kandace and Jordan are scheduled to be returned to the United States in the coming days, the outlet reports. The couple both grew up in Virginia Beach and graduated from the same high school in 2011.

Jordan Marshall later became a teacher after moving to New Orleans, where he met and became friends with fellow teacher Courtez Hall.

Kandace, who would have turned 29 on Thursday, earned an associate’s degree in marketing in 2015 and started her own candle-making company, Glo Through It, in 2020, according to her LinkedIn page.

Her mother described her as a “dreamer” who wanted to help others in her own life.

Update: Mexico City’s Attorney General says all three died from carbon monoxide poisoning, investigations are ongoing

According to WDSU reporter Shay O’Connor, Mexico City’s Attorney General says the three all died of carbon monoxide poisoning while staying in a rental home in Mexico over Halloween weekend.

The US Embassy in Mexico confirmed the deaths of the three US citizens and said its officials were “closely monitoring local authorities’ investigations into the cause of death.”
