We were really hoping things did not end this way, but such is life for the people of Mexico.
Tonight the military and federal forces have transported the bodies of the three missing federal police officers that were kidnapped in the area of Buenaventura. The bodies arrived at the local airport and were sent to the state coroner's office (Semefo) in Juarez for an autopsy. It appears that it was the body of commander Jose Alfredo Silly, Chief of Intelligence and two of his aides. According to media sources, they were found inside a mine in Buenaventura, executed at point blank to the head (tiro de gracia), had signs of torture, and were in the late stages of decomposition.
This might indicate that the officers were executed soon after the "levanton" (kidnapping) and were hidden because of the large force of feds scouring the area. The sicarios (hit men) perhaps did not want to attract attention to their location. They usually dump the bodies in a very public place to send a message to the police.
