MYSTERY has sparked the case of three Americans who were found dead in an Airbnb in Mexico.
The three friends who appeared to have traveled to Mexico City, died under mysterious circumstances as cops have not revealed what happened or the cause of their death.
Authorities have confirmed an investigation has been launched into the death of the three US nationals.
It currently remains unknown how the three people died.
One of the victims, Courtez Hall, was a social studies teacher at KIPP Morial School in New Orleans.
His devastated mom Ceola Hall has revealed she last spoke to her son on Saturday.
She said she received a call from the US Embassy on Monday to inform her of her son’s passing but she was not given any explanation regarding the circumstances of his death.
She told WDSU: “My son was a joyous child. He loved me, he loved his family. He loved to make everyone laugh.”
She continued: “It’s been so hard.
“We tried calling back over there for the funeral homes. Because of the language barrier and stuff you cannot get anything through or really understand.
“I would hate to see any parents go through what I went through with my son, I didn’t expect to hear this about my son. No one expects that.”
One of the man’s friends Chelsea Jackson, who knew him as they used to work together at Target told Fox8 she found out when a mutual friend messaged her on Friday while she was at work.
She said: “I still don’t understand that of all people, why him?
“When I found out I just froze. I had to go to the bathroom and burst into tears. I couldn’t even tend to my patient because I was very hurt.
“He was one of the nicest people, coolest people you would ever meet. He was very intelligent, giving.”
The school’s Principal Deanna Reddick paid tribute to the “bright light that helped students shine.”
The statement reads: “We are deeply saddened by the recent loss of our beloved 7th-grade history teacher, Courtez Hall.
“This was Mr. Hall’s first year teaching at KIPP Morial Middle School, and he quickly made a meaningful impact on our students.
“He was a bright light that helped our students shine in and out of the classroom.
“Our school community is heartbroken, and his family has our deepest sympathy, prayers, and condolences.
“School counselors are providing support to students and staff as they process this sad news, and we will cope with this grief together as a school family.”
A spokesperson for the US Embassy confirmed to the outlet the death of three people in Mexico.
They said in a statement: “We can confirm the death of three US citizens in Mexico. We are closely monitoring local authorities’ investigation into the cause of death.
“We stand ready to provide all appropriate consular assistance. Out of respect for the privacy of the families, we have nothing further to add at this time.”
