Three U.S. siblings found dead in Mexico in 2014 were executed by Mexican marines and a border mayor's paramilitary security team, the country's National Human Rights Commission said Thursday.

Erica Alvarado Salinas, 26, Alex Alvarado, 22, and Jose Angel Alvarado, 21, all American citizens, disappeared in 2014 while visiting their father in El Control, a small town near Matamoros, a Mexican city in the dangerous state of Tamaulipas, across the border from Brownsville, Texas.

Their bodies were found sixteen days later in a field east of Matamoros. They each had been shot in the head, and the bodies were badly decomposed. Jose Guadalupe Castaneda Benitez, 32, a friend from Mexico traveling with the siblings, was also killed.

.S. siblings found dead in Mexico...

Not enough detail. I suspect the siblings were bald adult men with facial tattoos.

Why no pictures of the victims? I also have to ask, were they sneaking into Mexico illegally?

what Mexico needs is a revolution

the people need to band together and overthrow the corrupt system from bottom to top

unlike the USA where the corruption exixts primarily at the top, and enabled by the bottom, in Mexico it is the opposite. Private citizens could form armed vigilantes and slaughter the bandits, however that would eliminate everyone in power at the local level and about half of the civilian population

so it aint ever gonna happen

just like how we will never be able to purge the Deep State

Never say never.

I’m sorta hoping Trump and company will expose and neuter much of our Deep State before the end of his first term.

And if the Mexicans no longer have a safe haven to force their culture upon, by building the wall and enforcing the border, then just maybe they may feel obliged to have a revolution.

It’s all possible.

Mexico has everything it needs to become a self supporting productive peaceful and free society. Mopst mexicans are great hardworking people, it has abundant natural resources, agricultural climate, oil, gas, limestone other minerals

there should be no reason for the Mexican people wanting to flee to America .....except for the bully gangs embeded in local government

Back in the 50’s I had a job in Brownsville and I often went to Matamoros for cabrito/dove/froglegs meal complete with maragaritas and I felt totally safe there. Times have changed.

The problem with Mexico is a problem that no one wants to admits exists. It has a caste system based on 3 main ethnic groupings, the peninsulares - those who are of primarily ethnic Spanish (or European) descent, the Mestizo’s - mixed AmeriInd & European. The peninsulares still own most of the wealth and feel entitled to run things, the Mestizos have made on inroads into running things but are still second class, the bottom is the AmeriInds. All of Mexico’s revolutions come from this interaction. From way I have read the last several revolutions were either Mestizos or AmeriInd led.
No matter who wins the peninsulares still over time come out on top. They have the money, the education and the expertise to run a modern state. The others do not. It’s pretty much the same through all of Latin America. A ruling AmeriInd imperial elite was replaced by a European imperial (primarily Spanish!) elite and that has always been the case and will continue. And remember Spanish culture, a culture where capitalism never found much fertile ground, a culture which created a centralized military state to solve the problem of driving out the Moors but was ill-suited to do anything else.

There is a fourth group that has a black genetic heritage.

They are really left out of the system.

Could have been an attempted kidnapping, which is common for U.S. citizens traveling in Mexico. If it was a legitimate law enforcement action, there was no reason to kill everybody and hide the bodies.

Oh great, I suppose now the Federales will return to full gangster status like in the 60's and 70's

Mexican government has always had two facets, Police by day / banditos by night.

Until recently, this demographic group was not even listed as a line-item by the government of Mexico.

Wonder if Jorge Ramos can explain that....

My father explained this very thing to me when I was about 7 years old. 1964. Nothing new under the sun. People will always choose to live to their nature without the intervention of the Holy Spirit of God through Jesus Christ actively living in us. Even then it is a new struggle each day when we awake until Christ returns.

The absolute craziness in the world today can only be understood in spiritual terms, not politics or political systems. Christ plainly told us we are either for or against Him, no shades of gray. Amen!
