The State Agency AEI investigates the kidnapping and murder of businessman Damian Gonzalez del Rio, whose body was found last weekend in the town of Salinas Victoria despite the ransom of 450,000 pesos having been paid.

González del Río, from the municipality of San Pedro Garza Garcia, was abducted in late July. He was in his business of heavy equipment for construction and was identified by relatives yesterday at University Hospital.

The remains of the 31 year old employer were located at kilometer 12 the road to Colombia on a gap up to the Road to Rancho San Patricio.

The body bore gunshot wounds, although there were no shell casings at the site so presumably he was killed elsewhere.

Damian Gonzalez was single and in negotiations with captors, his family had made three payments in ransom sum approaching half a million pesos.
