Remember that scene in the first season of Breaking Bad when Walter White and Jesse Pinkman need to dispose of a corpse, opting to use hydrofluoric acid? Turns out, as Agence France-Presse reports, a Mexican rapper and YouTuber known as QBA has been found guilty of doing exactly that.
Christian Omar Palma Gutierrez, who goes by the name QBA online and as a recording artist, has been arrested alongside another suspect in connection with the murders of three students. The bodies of Salomon Gastelum, Daniel Diaz, and Marco Avalos were reportedly disposed of using acid. Gutierrez told Mexican prosecutors that he dissolved their bodies in acid after they were kidnaped and subsequently murdered.
According to Gutierrez, he was recruited by one of Mexico's most infamous drug cartels, Jalisco New Generation Cartel, around three months ago thanks to a friend who introduced him. Paid a reported $159 a week for his work with the cartel, Gutierrez was tasked with finding a way to get rid of the bodies after the students were murdered after being kidnaped and tortured.
The students were filming a school project in a home that was being watched by New Generation, who mistook the students for a rival cartel. The three were abducted and taken to a safehouse, where one of them was beaten so severely that he died. Authorities found three tubs filled with sulfuric acid, and are currently looking for five more suspects in connection with the case. Gutierrez and the other suspect working alongside him are facing aggravated kidnapping charges.
