U.S. man, Mexican woman found murdered in Acapulco apartment

ACAPULCO (Reuters) - An American man and a Mexican woman were found murdered in an apartment in the resort city of Acapulco, authorities in the southwestern state of Guerrero said on Friday.

The bodies of Stanley Enders, 70, and Nora Valdez, 65, bore marks of having been strangled when they were discovered in the Condesa residential area in the city's main bay, the office of the state's attorney general said.

Officials were investigating the case as a homicide, the report added.

Although Acapulco is one of Mexico's deadliest cities, with government figures showing 2,213 homicides in Guerrero last year, tourists and foreigners have largely escaped the violence.
