K-pop star Samuel's father beaten to death in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Jose Arredondo, a U.S. citizen and father of K-Pop star Samuel, was reportedly beaten to death in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, according to media outlets.

Baja California Sur state prosecutors were called to a condominium Tuesday after someone reported a dead body, the AP reported. They said the body “showed signs of blunt force trauma.”

Arredondo ran a car dealership in Bakersfield, Calif. However, the prosecutors’ office said the 58-year-old victim was from Mexico City. The confusion may have arisen because Arredondo was reportedly born in Mexico.
