Taylor Meyer, a 27-year-old Californian tourist, was killed on November last year. His body was found in Playa del Carmen, along the Caribbean Sea, near the place where he and his friends were staying to celebrate a friend’s 30th birthday. Authorities claimed that Meyer was brutally stabbed to death during an apparent robbery.

In an interview with ABC Los Angeles Station KABC, Kris and Krista Meyer, parents of Taylor, said that they were told that their son’s body was discovered in a park near the bar where he had been with friends. His valuables, such as wallet, watch, shoes, and iPhone, was missing.

“We would just like the FBI overseeing and getting permission from the Mexican government to oversee this investigation,” his father said in the interview. “And so that we have clarity that we know that this is what really happened.”
