Ex-Amazon Mexico CEO accused of paying hitmen $9,000 to kill his wife

The ex-CEO of Amazon Mexico was recently accused of paying two hitmen two thousand dollars to murder his wife three years ago.

Juan Carlos Garcia is on the run but a trial recently opened for the murder of his wife, Abril Pérez Sagaón, in Mexico City on New York Post reported Sunday.

The output continued:

One of the henchmen testified that Garcia was offering an additional $2,500 if his wife was killed before the couple’s next hearing in a lawsuit she filed against him.

Pérez had filed for divorce from her husband after accusing him of trying to kill her when he beat her with a baseball bat in January 2019. She was in Mexico City for a scheduled hearing when she was killed shot by a motorcyclist, authorities said.

Computer-generated footage showed motorcyclists seated next to a vehicle, with one pointing a handgun in the car at someone in the passenger seat.

A photo showed the car with what appeared to be bullet holes in the window:

Garcia was still at large but Interpol issued an arrest warrant for him. He reportedly fled Mexico and entered the United States, later writing to the mayor of Mexico City saying he was innocent.

The Job article said Pérez had a restraining order issued against the man when she was killed.

In November, thousands of women gathered to demonstrate in the Mexican capital, calling for an end to “feminicides and other gender-based violence”, AFP reported.

“About 10 women are killed every day in Mexico and activists accuse the government of not doing enough to tackle the problem,” the report said. “More than 10,700 women have been murdered in Mexico since 2019, according to official figures.”

Members of Pérez’s family believe García was behind her murder and a relative claimed the only enemy she had was him.
