Guest Reporter Javier G.

Ten years he lived a good life in Mazatlán, Sinaloa.  Then on the night 25th of October  he disappeared. 

O’Neil Patrick McGean, an expatriate, an Arizona transplant, told friends he was meeting someone Tuesday night at around 8:30, which was the last time anyone had heard directly from the man.

Relatives said that Patrick told them earlier on Tuesday, that he had plans to attend a  party at the Hotel Punta Pacifico.

He was not seen or heard from again until last night, when police discovered his dead body found inside a house in the city.  Two men were inside the house with McGean’s body and they have been taken into custody.  Some reports indicate the house was an abandoned home.

McGean was spotted at a party at a Cerritos Hotel, and later his vehicle was discovered at a Sabalo Mazatlán Hotel. 

McGean owned a restaurant/Cafe “Café Playa Sur”, in Mazatlán, and warranted or not, had the reputation of being “wealthy”.  With the known facts in mind, it could be possible that he was trapped into what was a kidnap for extortion called “express kidnapping”.  His bank cards were used at various banks in the city. 

Authorities were quick to point out McGean was not known to be involved in criminal activities or drugs.

The openly gay McGean, was well liked, and socially active in the city, frequenting both gay and ex-pat social meeting places. 

He carved out a very comfortable life in the Sinaloa city, and made news after a school was vandalized destroying several thousand dollars in materials.  McGean spearheaded a drive to successfully raise funds to replace the destroyed items.
