Three bodies discovered near Matamoros, Mexico, were identified by their father as siblings visiting from Texas. The AP reports that witnesses saw the kidnapping of Erica, Jose Angel, and Alex Alvarado Rivera by men dressed as police earlier this month. This isn’t the first strange disappearance in Mexico this fall: 43 student protesters are still missing after vanishing in September — the discovery of a mass grave was found to be unconnected — and the small-town mayor and his wife suspected of orchestrating the disappearance in association with local law enforcement are on the run as fugitives.
