SAN JOSE DEL CABO, Mexico (AP) - Prosecutors in the Mexico resort town of San Jose del Cabo say they are investigating the death of Jose Arredondo, a U.S. citizen who was apparently beaten to death.

The Baja California Sur state prosecutors said Tuesday they were called to a condominium after someone reported a dead body. It said the body “showed signs of blunt force trauma.”

Media outlets in California reported that Arredondo ran a car dealership in Bakersfield, California. However, the prosecutors’ office said the 58-year-old victim was from Mexico City. The confusion may have arisen because Arredondo was reportedly born in Mexico.

A U.S. State Department official confirmed the death of a U.S. citizen in Cabo San Lucas and said, “We are closely monitoring local authorities’ investigation into the cause of death.”
