Tragic Loss For A Phoenix Olympic Boxer Hopeful

Alexis Urbina, 17, was a phenomenal and successful Phoenix boxer that was training for the 2016 Olympics. He was well-liked by the community and a good kid. Urbina recently won 2013 USA Boxing National Championships in April. Tragedy struck when he was found beaten in his South Phoenix home and was pronounced dead a day later. Reports say that he suffered from severe head injuries. The saddest and most frustrating part is that police do not have any leads. There was no sign of forced entry, but boxing memorabilia—that was said to have no real monetary value—was reported stolen. The family is convinced it was an act of jealousy rather than an intention to steal belongings, but they’re hoping the autopsy results will reveal the cause of death and give a better idea as to why this could have happened.

Could A Locksmith Help Prevent These Tragedies?

Though there weren’t any obvious signs of forced entry found, having a home security system could help avoid tragic situations like these. Even having a surveillance camera system could help greatly in the investigation so that a suspect could be identified or developing leads that could help understand how entry was gained.
