Bryant Rivera has been accused of killing three women he met at a Mexican strip club

A California man has been charged with the murder of three women working at a Tijuana strip club by Mexican authorities and is awaiting extradition.

Bryant Rivera, 30, has been charged with femicide after the murder of three dancers in Tijuana the Mexican Police said.

Baja California Attorney General Ricardo Carpio has said Rivera murdered at least three victims in an act of femicide. 

However, Rivera was arrested by police on July 6 but has only been charged with one of the murders in the US. 

The brutal murders of the vulnerable women led Baja California Attorney General Iván Carpio Sánchez to describe Rivera as displaying ‘violent and psychopathic behavior’ comparable to notorious murderer Ted Bundy. 

Rivera allegedly met the women at the Hong Kong Gentlemen’s Club, a popular strip club in Tijuana before brutally murdering them. 

The Mexican government is now formally seeking his extradition. 

Angela Acosta Flores, 20, was working as an exotic dancer in the Tijuana club when she was murdered at a hotel above the premises in January 2022

Elizabeth Martínez Cigarroa, 25, has been named as another of Rivera's alleged victims he's said to have met at the same premises

One of the victims, Ángela Carolina Acosta Flores, 20, who worked as a stripper, was murdered in a room at Hotel Cascadas on January 24, 2022.

On the night of the murder, the victim texted her mother that she was accompanying a client to a room at Hotel Cascadas for 30 minutes. 

Security cameras caught a man and Flores together before entering the room, according to the criminal complaint.

When she did not return her boyfriend went to the bar to look for her and a colleague said she had seen Flores ‘with a male client with a light brown complexion, an acne-scarred face,’ who stood about 5-foot-5 and had brown hair, according to the document.

The woman added that she knew the victim’s client as ‘Bryant Rivera,’ and that he was a ‘gringo,’ a term used to describe Americans, the complaint states.

Security camera footage is said to show Rivera heading to a hotel with a woman he's accused of killing

Flores’ mother and boyfriend went to the reception area of the hotel seeking information, and remained there until learning that a woman had been found dead in room 404.   

The next day Rivera returned to to US by foot, passing through the San Ysidro  port of entry, border control records show. 

Just three weeks later, Rivera murdered another dancer he met at the Hong Kong Gentlemen’s Club, Sánchez alleges.

Elizabeth Martínez Cigarroa, 25, was murdered after going on a Valentine’s Day date with an American, allegedly Rivera, that she met at the Hong Kong Gentlemen’s Club.

Her body was found on February 17, 2022 in the back of her abandoned truck with obvious signs of violence, Vice reported

Another dancer, thought to have been a regular client of Rivera, was allegedly strangled and beaten to death by him on August 30 2021, according to Zeta Tijuana

Rivera is filmed passing through border control. He is a California native, but will be tried over the killings in Mexico

Her body was found days later stuffed in a trash bin. 

For more than a year the victim’s families grieved their loss while the suspect evaded custody.

But on July 6 US police arrested Rivera on suspicion of the murder of Ángela Carolina Acosta Flores.

‘The United States understands that Mexico may add additional charges when it submits the formal request for extradition,’ according to the June 29 complaint filed by the U.S. attorney’s office. 

A detention hearing will take place in Los Angeles next week where federal prosecutors will request the judge keeps Rivera behind bars during extradition proceedings.  

Investigators have not ruled out the possibility that there will be other victims.
