Mexican Rapper Admits to Dissolving Film Students in Acid

Mexican rapper and YouTube star Christian Omar Palma Gutierrez admitted to dissolving the bodies of three film students in acid, according to the Agence France-Presse. Gutierrez, also known at “QBA,” is one of three people who have been prosecuted in the kidnapping and killing of Salomon Aceves Gastelum, Daniel Diaz, and Marco Avalos—three students whose disappearances last month prompted protests in Mexico. Gutierrez admitted to disposing of the bodies, claiming he was paid $159 a week to “work for the Jalisco New Generation drug cartel” after being “recruited by a friend three months ago,” according to the AFP. Prosecutors said that Gutierrez and the two others will be charged with “aggravated kidnapping,” while five more suspects have yet to be apprehended. Gutierrez has 125,000 subscribers on YouTube, where he has videos featuring rap songs about drugs, violence, and death.
