  1. Nothing will change.

  2. Sad that this is even necessary. My condolences to all the families whose loved ones are missing and feared killed. Hopefully this brings them a measure of closure.

  3. The way things move in mexico, I doubt this will help. Good move for the people though, At least their is some hope for closure

  4. 2:37 I hope the families affected by this pinchis wars on drugs can some day put the condolences and sympathies in a bank somewhere...
    --Respectfully, because the money never ceases to flow to the Mexican government satraps, so forgetaboutit,..

  5. They have done that in Guerrero as well.

    1. and tamps and durango and everywhere violence is over the top...when the cameras go so does the effort..."theater"

      I recall in Dgo when hundreds of bodies were discovered, the big announcement of DNA bank. people then began sharing their stories that they were turned away for DNA saying "we have no money"

      what is needed is a "codis" type federal bank for missing and found remains. so that standards and protocol are consistent.

      Problem is cost. DNA testing for CODIS is 400 and more found dental dna extraction and complicated testing.

      however reputable labs are as low as 200.
      How many bodies? 12k migrants go missing in Mx each year.

      I think families could pay for their own DNA. I think they would be happy to if they were satisfied the DNA bank was authentic that is how an american was identified as one of the san fernando bodies. The mother sent her DNA results right after the graves were exhumed. her son was kown to have been taken off the bus by narcos around 2010.

  6. BCS Noticias is reporting that 61 DNA samples were taken over the weekend from Family members that correspond to missing persons in the municipalities of La Paz, Los Cabos, Comondú and Loreto.
