Andrea Gomez said she warned Adam about the risk they would be putting themselves by driving through Sinaloa, the region known to be the home of El Chapo Guzman is also the place where the Sinaloa Cartel kill dozens or even more people everyday.
“I had told them of insecurity, but never told them of the horrible things that could happen. I feel a little responsible for that.”
Australian surfers Adam Coleman and Dean Lucas both 33-year-old were last seen buying a map the night before their white and blue van was found, according to Sinaloa Press. A burnt-out van with Canadian license plates was found in farmland in Navolato, in Sinaloa on November 21st.
Authorities in Sinaloa said they confirmed with the Canadian embassy that the van found was the same registered to Adam Coleman, however the identities of the two charred bodies inside has not been confirmed. Andrea Gomez brought pieces of her boyfriend’s dreadlocks while Lucas’ girlfriend Josie Cox was flying to Mexico with her boyfriend’s dental records, both girls hope with these items they can confirm whether or not the bodies inside belong to Adam and Dean.
Andrea Gomez said she met 33-year-old Adam Russell Coleman originally from Golden Bay, Perth a year ago in Tecoman, he spoke perfect Spanish, but Andrea’s English wasn’t that great. Even so, they pair started dating, Adam came to Gualajara, Mexico to see Andrea every two months, she said they were planning to moved in together in Mexico permanently.
