ALBANY, New York (WABC) –
The holidays in Mexico ended tragically for a New York couple and their family is now struggling to get their remains back home.
Ed Winders and his partner Barbara Moller were accused of dying from carbon monoxide poisoning in their Airbnb two weeks ago in the central highlands of Mexico.
The Winders' children are now facing language barriers and red tape as they attempt to bring their bodies back to Albany.
The Mexican police are holding the couple's bodies while they continue to investigate.
"It's hard to make sense of something, you know we're all successful at one point, but it just seems so wrong and wrong," said Eric Winders.
In the meantime, people are donating to an online fundraiser to help cover the costs of memorial and transportation.
