UPDATE:On Sunday the remaining seven of the nine Mexican agents that went missing on Friday have been found dead. Six bodies were found in a ravine in Guerrero with two of them found dismembered with warning notes attached to their bodies; amongst the dead was the commander of the unit. Two other bodies were found Saturday in the town of El Revelado. It is believed one agent was the lone survivor and has been found - no other details on him are being provided. The bodies found on Saturday also contained a note warning anyone of a similar fate if they support drug cartel leader Hector Beltran Leyva. The note alleges Beltran is the “owner” of the state of Guerrero and has their entire support, it is therefore assumed the agents killings were done by rival of the Beltran Leyva cartel.
ORIGINAL STORY: The Director of State Investigative Police for the Mexican state of Guerrero announced that nine of his agents were on assignment and went missing Friday. The nine agents were going to the town of El Revelado to investigate a body found in the region. The director later learned armed gunmen had kidnapped the officers. As the state police were searching for their comrades they came upon the bodies of two of the officers, the other seven remain missing.
In other parts of Mexico, police detained two alleged leaders of the Aztec gang in Ciudad Juarez and in Monterrey three suspected cartel gunmen were killed as police were freeing a kidnap victim.
