The Mexican Prosecutor’s Office will send human remains that may belong to some of the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa to a laboratory at the University of Innsbruck, in Austria.
“We have other remains pending identification, this is the first time we announce, there are two remains, out of more than 120 that we have found, in the area of Las Cuevillas, Apetlanca in the town of Cuetzalan del Progress, we are waiting for the date set by the Innsbruck laboratory,” said Alejandro Encinas, president of the Truth Commission.
Additional remains will be analyzed by experts from the Mexican Attorney General’s Office (FGR). Only three of the 43 missing youths have been found and identified. According to Encinas, the investigation includes information obtained by the US Anti-Narcotics Agency, DEA, and therefore found that “at no time” did the students talk on the phone with security agents or members of the Guerreros Unidos cartel. .
The youth disappeared between September 26 and 27, 2014 in the state of Guerrero in southern Mexico, while they were trying to board buses to go to Mexico City and participate in a march, when they were chased and attacked by hitmen from the drug cartel United Warrior.0
According to the Truth Commission, young people may be confused by the members of a cartel rival, they are victims of the “pursuit” of the mayor of the city of Iguala and Guerreros Unidos or there are drugs, weapons or money in the buses they ride.
“The organization of united fighters used buses full of drugs, heroin, cocaine, which they called China White, they sent them to the United States and in the buses they returned the money,” he said.
There are 132 people detained in the case, including 41 members of Guerreros Unidos, 71 police, former Attorney General Jesús Murillo Káram, 14 members of the Army and five other officers. And there are three extradition orders for officials who fled to Mexico.
