A man in Mexico City is suing a company after he claims the company sold him his sex toy, then used it to murder him, according to reports.
The lawsuit, filed in the southern city of Oaxaca, was filed on Thursday by Antonio Ramos and Juan Jose Gonzalez, who allege that the sex toy was purchased at a mall in Oaxacán, about 150 kilometers (93 miles) south of Mexico City, and they used it in an attempt to murder their former girlfriend, according the AP.
According to the lawsuit, the sex toys had been in the possession of Ramos for about five years, and he bought it after he became involved with Gonzalez, but he never paid the manufacturer for it, instead paying it for Gonzalez’s daughter to wear it in public.
It was then used to commit a murder, the lawsuit said.
The victim was identified by the lawsuit as Juan Ramón Cruz, who had been missing since August and had been reported missing to police.
Ramos told the AP he bought the sex doll after he learned that Gonzalez was selling it on eBay.
He said he knew that Gonzalez’s family was unhappy because he did not want to get involved with a family member who was still missing, the AP reported.
The suit also claims that Ramos’s daughter had been selling the sex dolls at a carnival in Ooxaca for years.
The couple’s son, who was also a customer at the carnival, told reporters that he had seen Ramos and Gonzalez at the event selling the dolls and said he suspected they were trying to buy the family’s home.
“They were selling dolls, selling sex dolls,” said the boy, according a statement by the boy’s father, who did not give his name.
“I saw them at the [carnival] selling dolls in the parking lot.
I thought, ‘They are selling a lot of dolls, so why don’t they get rid of the dolls?'”
He added that Ramos and his family were very happy about their decision to buy and sell the dolls.
The AP reports that the Oaxacan city government is investigating the allegations.
