Man Arrested In Connection With Death Of Boy, 8
Body Of Child Found In Suitcase In Tijuana

SAN DIEGO -- Mexican authorities said they found the mutilated body of a child inside a red suitcase in Tijuana Monday.

Authorities did not confirm whether or not it is the body of 8-year-old David Lizarraga Gomez, who has reported missing on Saturday.

Lizarraga was last seen at his home in Tijuana, and Mexican police issued an Amber Alert with his picture and what he was last seen wearing.

Mexican police said the body of a boy believed to be Lizarraga was found in an empty lot near his family's apartment in Tijuana late Monday afternoon.

The Amber Alert was cancelled and the body was taken to the medical examiner's office.

Later, Mexican officials told 10News the boy's body was found with a plastic bag over his head and appeared to have been strangled. Authorities said one person, a family member, was taken into custody.

Authorities took a 19-year-old man, identified as Jose Ruben Quintero Mariscal, into custody in connection with the boy's death.

Sources with the Baja California Attorney General's Office said Quintero is a resident of Tijuana and San Diego, but it is not clear if he's a U.S. citizen.

Authorities said the motive for the abduction appears to be sexual-related.  http://www.10news.com/news/19696438/detail.html
