U.S. Airways Flight Attendant Murdered in Mexico City Hotel Room
A U.S. Airways flight attendant was found dead in a Mexico City hotel room on Saturday, during a layover. Investigators suspect the Phoenix attendant, Nick Aaronson, was murdered according to reports.
NYDailyNews.com reported Sunday that the flight attendant was found strangled in a luggage-strewn Mexico City hotel room. Aaronson was discovered lying naked on the ground next to a bed in his Hilton Hotel room with his hands bound and a belt around his neck, Phoenix’s ABC affiliate reported, citing local reports.
There was also evidence that the victim had been hit several times, the station said.
According to NYDaiIyNews.com, U.S. Airways’ flight attendant union released a statement saying that it didn’t appear that Aaronson’s hotel room had been broken into, but crew members who were staying at the Hilton had been moved to other hotels as a precaution.
The president of the Association of Flight Attendants Council 66, Deborah Volpe said Aaron was loved by his fellow flight attendants.
Aaronson had been working with U.S. Air since 2006.
