The resort town of Acapulco is reeling from the news that the 20 missing Mexican tourists that were kidnapped back on September 30th were found in a mass grave.
A group of mechanics from nearby Morelia, Michoacan were vacationing together in the resort city and that appears to be why they were targeted. Federal police have confirmed none of the men were involved in crime or affiliated with the dominant drug cartel in Michoacan La Familia.
A YouTube video posted by the assumed murderers shows two of the tourists tied up and being questioned while announcing that police would find the bodies in a small town outside of Acapulo. In the video the kidnappers state this was done as an act of revenge against the drug cartel La Familia.
Upon investigation 18 bodies were found confirmed to be the missing tourists and presumed to have been there since a month ago with the two men interviewed on the video on top of the heap of bodies. Two men remain missing and presumed dead.
