A Wisconsin woman died while vacationing at a Mexican resort after two men gave her a “mystery shot” at the bar, the Daily Mail reports.
Abbey Conner, 20, and her brother Austin, 22, were found floating face down in the pool after drinking at the pool bar.
Abbey Conner was declared brain dead and later died. Austin survived.
The family had only been at the resort for a couple of hours before Abbey was found floating in the pool.
Her brother says the last thing he remembers is doing a shot of something that looked like a “Jagerbomb” with a group of men at the bar. Then he woke up in an ambulance.
“Knowing that we got played or are victims of some sick person drugging us is almost surreal,” he told the Daily Mail.
“Somebody had to slip them some type of drug,” their father said.

Six months after the tragedy and the family still doesn’t know what happened to Abbey.
When Abbey and Austin’s stepdad, John, and Austin hired a translator and went to file a police report a few days after the incident at the resort, they say the police resisted launching an investigation, insisting it was an accidental drowning.
Within weeks, the McGowans hired an American law firm with a sister office in Mexico to help get answers. On Monday, they received their attorney’s report.
It raises even more questions.
On May 30, an attorney in Mexico inquired at the police department and found they had done a limited investigation. Police had interviewed three hotel staffers. The attorney’s report doesn’t say when the interviews took place.
The McGowans’ American attorney, Florentino Ramirez, said he puts little credence in the police report.
‘It’s all too convenient,’ he said. ‘If it was an accident, where was everybody? It just doesn’t make sense. There are too many open ends.’
