Shocking Pet Murders in Playa del Carmen: Activist Seeks Justice

Mariana Rubio Arrevillaga has officially lodged a complaint regarding the tragic death of her pets in Playa del Carmen. Arrevillaga, who lost her dogs in a horrific incident, was supported by numerous activists at the State Attorney's Office (FGE) of Quintana Roo.

In a dramatic turn of events, Cancun police officers were injured after colliding with a van during a chase. On Wednesday morning, a group of activists gathered at the FGE of Quintana Roo to express their solidarity with Arrevillaga. She was run over alongside her two dogs by an accountant named Samuel S. from Xcaret on Sunday, May 12.

Arrevillaga returned to the FGE to formally lodge her complaint after the alleged perpetrator was released the following day. The prosecutor argued that there was no crime to pursue in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo. The van involved in the incident was severely damaged after the accident in Playa del Carmen.

The accountant, who was reportedly drunk at the time, caused an accident on Las Americas Boulevard. He crashed into a taxi, two houses, and in an attempt to escape, intentionally hit Arrevillaga and her pets. The dogs were killed instantly, their bodies horrifically mangled by the impact of the van.

Arrevillaga is now seeking justice for the cruel death of her pets. She urged Attorney Antonio Rojas to properly handle her case, referencing Criminal Article 179. This law states that any act of cruelty resulting in the death of an animal, whether intentional or unjustified, is a crime.
