Girlfriend of surfer murdered in Mexico shares his heartbreaking final voicemail message

A surfer left a heartbreaking final voicemail message to his girlfriend before he was murdered in Mexico.

Australian brothers Jake Robinson, 30, Callum Robinson, 33, and their American friend Jack Carter Rhoad, 30, all traveled to Ensenada, Mexico for a fun getaway.

The group was last seen surfing and camping along the Mexican coast on April 27, PEOPLE reports.

According to the Associated Press, the brothers’ mother, Debra Robinson, revealed that her sons and their friend were reported missing after they failed to show up at the accommodation they had booked in Rosarito.

NBC San Diego reported that police officers searching for the men discovered three bodies at the bottom of a 50-foot well in Santo Tomas, Baja California, FBI San Diego. All three had suffered gunshot wounds.

Baja California’s chief prosecutor, María Elena Andrade Ramírez, theorized during a news conference that the three surfers may have been killed over their truck because the suspects wanted the tires, according to AP.

Ramírez believes the suspects noticed the tents the men had set up and said, “When (the surfers) came up and caught them, they definitely resisted.”

She added that they were most likely killed while fighting the robbers.

The victims’ relatives identified the bodies, which were found about four miles away from where they were killed. A fourth body was also found in the well.

Authorities have now arrested three people: Jesús Gerardo Garcia Cota, Ari Gisel García Cota and Cristian Alejandro García after the deaths.

According to News.com.au, they were all believed to be in possession of drugs.

Horwath has paid tribute to her late partner with a saved Instagram highlight, featuring a saved voice message he left her.

In the heartbreaking message, Callum says: “Happy Tuesday, good morning! It’s 11:11 am and I’m just thinking about you. I just wanted to drop you a line and say, hello sweetheart, I hope you’re having a phenomenal start to your life. day.”

“For some reason I feel a big grin on your face today. I hope you are full of positivity and smiles. Cheers honey, I miss you,” he concluded.

Emily captioned the story: “I’m going to play this on repeat,” adding: “That’s exactly who you were. Positivity and a smile.”

A GoFundMe supporting the Robinsons in the wake of the tragedy has raised $303,708 of its $350,000 goal.

Another donation page was set up by Aubrey Byers on behalf of Jack’s girlfriend Natalie Weirtz, whom he was set to tie the knot with in August.

“We created this GoFundMe page for two purposes: the first is to raise support for Natalie during this unimaginably difficult time and to provide essentials like housing, food, transportation and more.

“The second is to honor Carter by raising money for scholarships and donations that he was passionate about. No donation is too small and every contribution is greatly appreciated,” she added.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of all three victims.
