The 39-year-old former model and owner of well known modelling agency was killed last Sunday morning after he and friend were abducted by several masked gunmen who had installed a road block near the bar where they had been celebrating with organizers from the Sinaloa pageant.

Castellanos' body was discovered in a van early Sunday while the two other victims who had been kidnapped with him were allowed to go free.

Beauty pageants in Mexico have long been linked to the criminal underworld. Sinaloa is the birthplace of some of country's most infamous drug traffickers, including " El Chapo" Guzman who has particularly inglorious history with beauty contest.
