The woman was nude on the balcony of the upscale Polanco neighborhood. She was found to have injuries indicating she was raped and injured, including bruises and cuts on her body, Mexico News Daily reported. They reported she was “scared and disoriented” when police were called. She filed a report indicating she met Raymond on the dating app, Tinder, and that she passed out after drinking a glass of wine he gave her.
Raymond contended he had consensual sex with the woman and was released, leaving for the United States the next day and quarantining for two weeks. Raymond agreed to be interviewed by federal officials following the quarantine.
Raymond was charged in a one-count criminal complaint which alleges “he induced an adult victim to travel for the purpose of engaging in any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense. Raymond allegedly met the victim on a dating application and had videos and photographs of the victim showing her unconscious and partially undressed.” The FBI is continuing its investigation and seeking any additional victims.
“The FBI has been working with the DSS Office of Special Investigations and foreign law enforcement to coordinate the law enforcement effort to obtain information, including information about any additional potential victims,” an FBI news release said. “The investigation has also revealed photographs and videos of additional adult women on Raymond’s devices and electronic accounts. As a result, the FBI has created a central electronic system to collect information from potential victims and further investigate this case.”
The FBI is seeking information on any additional victims or anyone who may have additional information on Raymond. Anyone who had contact with Raymond or dated him is asked to fill out a brief online questionnaire.
