Three Surfers Murdered in Mexico: Identities

The three surfers murdered in Mexico, among them, two Australians, the clues point to the fact that it was to steal their van.

We recall that the three surfers murdered in Mexico were found dead, after being missing since April 27.

The two Australian surfing brothers were taking the “trip of a lifetime” with an American friend when they were killed in Mexico in an alleged robbery to steal their truck.

Of the three surfers killed in Mexico, Callum and Jake Robinson were Australians, and were with Jack Carter Rhoad near Ensenada, a Baja California port city popular with surfers.

The three disappeared on April 27, 2024.

Days later, the bodies of the three surfers were found in a well with gunshot wounds to the head.

A fourth set of human remains was found in the well, but is not believed to be linked to the incident in this northern Mexican state.

After traveling to Mexico and meeting with local authorities, the victims’ families identified the bodies on Sunday, May 5.

“The bursting with uniformed forces into a diplomatic headquarters (as happened in Ecuador) is scandalously contrary to international law. A very serious step”.


For the case of the three surfers murdered in Mexico, two men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of direct or indirect involvement in the deaths of the tourists.

While a man with a criminal record has been charged with “forced disappearance”.

Mexican authorities believe the victims were attacked after they resisted the theft of their van.

One of the three surfers killed in Mexico, Callum Robinson, 33, lived in San Diego, just across the U.S.-Mexico border in California.

He was a graduate of Stevenson University in Maryland and a member of the Australian National Lacrosse Team, a team sport similar to field field hockey.

According to his mother, Debra Robinson, Callum was diabetic.

In a statement, Stevenson University athletics director Brett Adams said Callum was “a stellar student, a stellar athlete and an even better friend.”

“We are all very grateful that he was part of our lives. He lived an extraordinary life, but what is most impressive about Callum is that he was a loyal friend. Once you were his friend, you were his friend for life,” said his former trainer, Paul Cantabene.

A friend of Callum’s, Hayley Jacobs, told Australia’s Nine News that Callum “lit up the place where he was” and added that Callum hoped to return to Australia.

Jacobs’ mother became concerned for her children when she did not hear from Callum since he began his journey in Mexico. The last time she saw him was the day he left.

Meanwhile, another of the three surfers killed in Mexico, 30-year-old Australian Jake, Callum’s younger brother, left Australia about two weeks before the tragic events.

He was an avid traveler who logged his trips on Instagram, including a two-month visit to Indonesia last year.

Together with his brother, he attended the Coachella music festival in California before crossing the border into Mexico.

A friend of Jake’s, Jenny Nguy, paid tribute to him on social media, saying, “I can’t stop thinking about you, your smile, your laughter, your kindness. I can’t stop crying thinking about how your parents must be feeling.”

Jack Carter Rhoad, 30, was a friend of Callum’s, lived in San Diego and had worked at a technology services company since December 2019.

Before that, in 2012, he had founded an apparel company, Loma Apparel. Between 2014 and 2015, he played professional soccer for Deportivo Mixto in Guatemala’s top-tier national league.
