The Tao complex in Tulum, Mexico certainly doesn’t look like the sort of place where anything bad could happen. With its Asian influences, massive golf course and infinity pools, it’s the sort of place that people go to lose themselves in comfort and security for a few weeks. Sadly though, for the Sharp family from Iowa, what should have been a perfect vacation ended in tragedy.
Kevin Wayne Sharp was 41 years old. He worked distributing beer and through that had become a regular race driver at the Adams County Speedway in Iowa. In 2017, he came fourth in the stock car championship. This was the second time that he’d taken his family to Mexico for a vacation.
