MEXICO CITY (AP) — Families in Mexico City say authorities have told them that 10 of the bodies found in a mass grave outside the capital have been identified so far as being among a dozen young people kidnapped three months ago from a bar in the city.
One mother, Julieta Gonzalez, says federal officials told her Sunday at a meeting that her daughter and nine others had been identified using DNA tests on the 13 bodies recovered from a grave on a ranch east of Mexico City. Tattoos and physical characteristics also were matched to make some IDs.
Authorities have not said who the 13th victim may be. The bodies were unearthed Thursday.
The young bar-goers vanished from the Heaven club May 26 a block from tourist-friendly Paseo de la Reforma.
