In all three cases the suspect suffocated them to death, in addition to hitting them in the chest and face. Two of the three victims were found naked, while the girl who was clothed seems to have resisted more, as she had more injuries.

Thanks to surveillance images from various points, the aggressor could be identified, as well as the car he was driving. Sharing this data with the United States government, they were able to know that the dates of the three homicides coincided with the days of Rivera’s crossings at the sentry box.

According to the physical characteristics of this serial killer, he is light brown, overweight, oval face, large straight nose, protruding ears, medium lips, short dark hair, and appears to be older.

So far there is no record that Brayan Rivera crossed again with his passport from Tijuana to San Ysidro since the end of February, but they do not know if they are still on the Mexican side, or if there is a possibility that he has documents with another identity. .

For the three femicides committed in Tijuana, Rivera would face a sentence of up to 180 years in prison.that is, 60 years for each of the deaths.
