Author: Yuvi November 21, 2022


The father of the woman whose decomposing corpse was found stuffed inside a cooler in Mexico revealed ‘red flags’ he missed before his daughter’s horrific murder as the victim’s boyfriend – described as a ‘master of disguise’ – remains on the run.

The remains of new mom, Racquel Sabean, 40, a former Navy veteran from San Diego, were discovered in Tijuana, Mexico, in May.

Residents had reported a ‘foul odor,’ coming from a Volkswagen Jetta that was parked on a street – 1400 block Calle del Cantil, Jardines Section, Playas de Tijuana.

When Tijuana authorities arrived they made the horrifying discovery of a rotting corpse inside a red and white cooler that was inside the trunk of the vehicle.

David Sabean, the victim’s father, revealed that his daughter’s neck had been broken, according to the autopsy report, CBS8 News reported.

The victim’s boyfriend, Tyler Adams, 50, aka Paul Phillips and father of their seven-month-old daughter, Valentina, remains at large.

The authorities said that he is a wanted fugitive out of the state of Hawaii for Escape in the Second Degree. The warrant was issued in September 2020.

Adams was last seen June 16, 2022, entering the United States at the Yan Ysidro Port of Entry around 1:30pm on using the alias ‘Aaron Bain.’

Police say Adams has not been charged with any crime, but the FBI has confirmed they want to question him in connection with the murder.

Racquel’s father said he ‘would bet my life’ that Adams is his daughter’s killer in an exclusive interview with the US Sun.

The FBI who calls Adams ‘a master of disguise,’ and ‘phony’ is known to use multiple fake and stolen identities. He is reported to use the following aliases: Aaron Lee Bain, Aron Lee, Paul Wilson Phipps, Paul Wilson Phillips, David Smith, Dominic Braun, David Phillips, Kevin Schoolcraft, Kevin Kennedy, Michael Whittman, Lance Irwin, Brice Johnson, Matthew Kashani , Taylor Chase, Joshua Smith.

Adam has brown hair and stands at 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs approximately 175 pounds. He was last seen wearing a yellow short-sleeve button-up shirt, tan pants, black running shoes and has distinct swelling under his eyes.

He described his first time meeting Adams as a “good first impression,” but then noticed concerning “red flags.”

He said his daughter confided in him that Adams was kind and polite to her while father was around but it was a different story when they were alone.

Another red flag David recalled was when Adams claimed he was a ‘Mormon’ but after questioning him on his faith and noticing a tattoo, he started to become suspicious.

‘Eventually, I started thinking this guy’s a phony, right?,’ he said, in part, the US Sun reported.

‘We went to the beach, he took his shirt off. When he took off his shirt. I saw a tattoo on his left arm.

‘I know Mormon families. I’ve never seen any Mormon, real Mormons, … that have tattoos,’ he said.

On June 17, 2022, the FBI issued a release asking the public for their assistance in helping to locate Adams, informing the public that he was a ‘phony,’ and a ‘master of disguise.’

The FBI has confirmed they want to question him in connection with the murder.

The flyer featured photos of Adams that showed swelling under his eyes, and listed more than a dozen aliases.

FBI San Diego wrote the Adams was detained in Mexico on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, regarding an Amber Alert issued for his infant daughter. The child was later found safe with a babysitter in Mexico, and remains in protective custody there.

Mexican authorities said Adams was reportedly uncooperative when they wanted to question him about his girlfriend’s death before he crossed the border into the United States.

Video surveillance taken from the neighborhood in Tijuana where Racquel’s body was found proves that her boyfriend was the killer, her father told the US Sun.

He even describes the clothes Adams was wearing the day of the alleged murder—black pants, black shoes, black mask, and black gloves.

‘In Mexico, there’s a video of [Adams] parking my daughter’s car,’ David said, in part.

‘I saw it with my own eyes,’ Racquel’s father went on.

He said Mexican police have access to the surveillance video – but said Adams hasn’t been charged.
