JUAREZ, N.M. (KRQE) – A New Mexico family is searching for answers after their 19-year-old grandson was found dead in Juarez.
The body of Alejandro Kawaha of Lovington was found earlier this month stuffed inside the trunk of a car.
The teen’s grandfather told the Hobbs News-Sun he had been stabbed multiple times in the neck, chest, arms and head. Also in the trunk was the body of Alejandro’s 28-year-old friend.
The family says Alejandro was born in El Paso, but has lived in Lovington for nearly three years working construction.
He was in Juarez visiting his mother.
