ROSARITO BEACH – One of two bodies found Thursday morning in Rosarito Beach may be that of a Tijuana police commander who was abducted from his house Sunday, investigators said.

Francisco Javier Robles, director of the Baja California Ministerial Police, said one of the bodies “presumably” was that of Jesus Alberto Rodriguez Meraz, commander of a police substation near the U.S. border in the Otay Mesa district known as El Centenario.

A group of armed assailants grabbed Meraz and another man on Sunday night at Meraz's residence in the Los Alamos section of the city.
