Three missing Mexican students were killed last month in the state of Jalisco. Their bodies were dissolved in acid after criminals confused them with members of a rival gang, authorities said Monday.
The three film students were last seen in the municipality of Tonala after their car broke down and they were later kidnapped by at least six people, who tortured and killed them, according to Jalisco state prosecutors.
“Subsequently their bodies were dissolved in acid so that no trace of them remained,” the state prosecutors office said. State prosecutor Raul Sanchez said that two people had been arrested so far in the investigation.
