A recent medical college graduate who went missing in Mexico last week mentioned on Sunday that he “can’t recall anything” about his disappearance after a June 15 graduation ceremony.
Mexican authorities mentioned that Jessy Pacheco, of Van Buren, Ark., had been kidnapped when a fellow student was discovered dead after their graduation from Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara. However, on Friday, Pacheco reportedly boarded an American Airways flight from Guadalajara to Dallas with his mom.
On Sunday, Pacheco mentioned he had experienced a “complete blackout” after the ceremony.
“I mean, graduation — it was wonderful,” he stated during a news conference at the Merge Church in Van Buren. “All my family, friends had been there. We were celebrating and subsequent thing you know [I] blacked out.”
“I believed my life was over,” he added. “However I’m home.”
He stated he didn’t know what number of days he was gone, and he hadn’t talked with Mexican authorities since returning to his native Arkansas.
“We don’t know with whom he was, who kidnaped him,” Pacheco’s mom, Vilma Franco, added. “We don’t know anything.”
Pacheco’s friend, Carlos Alejandro Delgadillo Romero, medical school pupil, was taken by a bunch of folks from a bar the friends went to. Romero was attacked and shot to death with a pistol, the Jalisco attorney general’s office mentioned.
Attorney General Gerardo Octavio Solís Gómez stated that investigators believed the same group had kidnaped Pacheco. No arrests have been made in Romero’s death.
