Mexican midget wrestlers found drugged to death in hotel; authorities eye gang of female robbers
Two midget wrestlers have been found dead in a seedy Mexican motel - and authorities are investigating whether a cruel Amazonian gang of thieves drugged them to death, the Daily Mail of the UK reported.
Coroners are examining the corpses of brothers Alberto and Alejandro Jiménez, known in the ring as "Espectrito Jr." and "La Parkita" or "Little Death," who donned a skeleton costume for combat.
Witnesses spotted two women - posing as prostitutes - leaving the victims’ room prior to the discovery of their bodies.
Gangs of female robbers roaming Mexico are experienced at drugging men to knock them out and rob them, said Prosecutor Miguel Angel Mancera.
Authorities speculate the bandits, using a mix of alcohol and eye drops, may have used too strong a dose. The Lilliputian pugilists' small stature may have played a role in the fatal drugging, but larger men have also died in the robberies.
