The girl’s aunt reportedly wanted to take the suspect to police but an angry mob told her there was no chance of him leaving the community alive.

According to local media Roblero was beaten and tied to a pole before petrol was poured over his body and set on fire.

Police reportedly arrived at the scene but were unable to save the suspect’s life.

Authorities in Chiapas said in a statement that citizens are not allowed to take matters into their own hands.

An investigation into the suspect’s death is ongoing.
