A former contestant on “The Voice Mexico” was found dead last weekend, after he had been kidnapped by armed gunmen dressed as police officers earlier this month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Gibran David Martiz Diaz, 22, was found late Saturday at the scene of a shootout in Veracruz, Mexico, between security forces and his suspected kidnappers, the story says. Another body, that of an unidentified minor, was also found at the scene.
The victims had been killed before the shootout, the story notes. The suspects died in the conflict.
Martiz Diaz was a contestant in the third season of the musical competition.
