Couple and young son found dead in bedroom in Mexico Airbnb
DELANO, Calif. (KBAK) – A California family is asking for help bringing home three of their loved ones who died suddenly on vacation in Mexico.
Jose Nunez Jr., his wife Maria Nunez and their 3-year-old son, Jayden Nunez, were on vacation in Mexico to visit family members. The three were staying at an Airbnb when they were all found dead in the same room.
According to Jose’s aunt, Trini Jacobo, the other family members staying at the Airbnb were not injured.
Jacobo says there are too many questions to answer, leaving her and the family with no idea of the death of the Nunez family.
“They’re still in Mexico, and they’re going to perform an autopsy and definitely get to the root of what caused their deaths. So we are unsure of the details at this time,” she said.
Jacobo says his family and friends are in shock and the couple were some of the nicest people you’ll ever know. She says grieving her beloved nephew won’t be easy, but her memories will help her through it.
“Just a really good family. Both are very family oriented. Jose is probably – honestly, not just because he’s my nephew – but he’s one of the best dads I know,” said she said, “In love with his family. He always hugs them, always holds them in his arms.”
Right now, the family’s main goal is to bring their loved ones back to California, Jacobo says.
“We are not worried about anything else at the moment. We want our loved ones back in the United States. We want to know what happened to them, of course, but … right now our focus is on bringing Jose, Maria and Jayden back,” she said.
A GoFundMe Was established to help raise funds for transportation costs and funeral expenses. He raised nearly $12,000.
The couple also leaves behind four other children.
Airbnb called the deaths a “horrible tragedy” in a statement and said it was investigating what happened. Airbnb listing was disabled during investigation.
