Mexican authorities in the state of Quintana Roo have arrested the state’s radiologist, David Nestor Quijano Muñoz, on charges of rape and child pornography, thanks in great part to his three marriage to girls less than 15-years old.

Muñoz, whose is also known as ‘El Tigre’ (the Tiger), marriages were discovered after a complaint made by a local family that their minor daughter was shown children pornography when the radiologist should have been taking her x-rays.

It was discovered that ‘El Tigre’ started a relationship with his current wife when she was 12-years-old, with the implied permission of her parents.  His wife, who is believed to be less than 14-years old, gave birth to the couples son at age 13. 

The doctor is also believed to have been married at least three other times all with minor aged girls.  The investigation into these marriages continues.

He is charged with rape for having sexual relations with his under-age wives and charged with child pornography for the material that was found on his work computer at the state hospital.  Several state officials are also being investigated as to how they issued marriage licenses to minor children.

While in custody, over the last several days, Muñoz has attempted suicide twice by ingesting screws, thereby delaying the criminal investigation and court proceedings.
