Minnesota-born businessman Kyle Kester fell in love with Mexican culture and moved to Mexico in 2010. He was allegedly killed last month by several workers finishing his dream home.
A Minnesota businessman was beaten and stabbed to death in rural Mexico by a trio of workers he’d hired to build his dream home, cops have said.
Kyle Kester, 38, was allegedly killed Feb. 10 at his sprawling estate in the remote Colonia Bosque de la Capilla valley, some 18 miles north of the city of Guadalajara.
Details of his death have only emerged this week.
The Minnesota Star Tribune reports that Kester’s body was found by a friend around 48 hours after his murder.
The suspects are a pair of teens, who have been arrested, and a 21-year-old, believed to have fled across the border into the U.S., who were installing an irrigation system.

An alleged getaway driver was also arrested but has since been released. Mexican police have reportedly obtained in-house surveillance footage of the incident.
Kester’s remains were flown back to his parents home in Apple Valley, Minn., and were cremated.
The Star Tribune reports he became a mechanic and moved to California before relocating to Phoenix in 2004, where he started flipping homes.
Befriending Mexican immigrants hired to work on the houses, he fell in love with their culture and crossed the border to move to the country in 2010.
His dream 6,000-square-foot stucco estate home, which overlooked the mountains, was almost finished when he was killed.
The teens arrested could face seven years in prison if convicted.
