US Lawyer Elliot Blair suffered 40 head fractures before death at Mexican resort, lawyer says

California lawyer Elliot Blair suffered a badly fractured skull and bruises across his body before he died at a Mexican resort, a family attorney says.

The Orange County public defender’s mysterious death at the Las Rocas Resort and Spa in Rosarito Beach on 14 January was initially ruled as a result of an accidental fall by Mexican authorities.

However, his wife Kimberly Williams believes he was murdered and requested a second independent autopsy be carried out in the United States.

Preliminary results have revealed that Blair, 33, had more than 40 fractures on his head mostly in the back of his skull and left side of his face, attorney Case Barnett told the New York Post.
