    Mexico - Busloads of 43 students missing, presumed dead, 26 Sept 2014 *Arrest*

    MEXICO CITY (AP) – A federal judge in Mexico has ordered that a once-fugitive police chief be held on charges of kidnapping in the disappearance of 43 students.
    The government's investigation determined that local police in Iguala intercepted several busloads of students from the Rural Normal School at Ayotzinapa on Sept. 26, 2014. They were allegedly turned over to a local drug cartel and killed.

    Flores was arrested Friday in Iguala. Sales says he was caught visiting his wife at a friend's house.

    This was first I had seen this and I just realized it happened in 2014, not this year!

    The arrest of the police chief only just happened this year.

    Missing Mexican Students Suffered a Night of ‘Terror,’ Investigators Say


    MEXICO CITY — Municipal police officers encircled the bus, detonated tear gas, punctured the tires and forced the college students who were onboard to get off.

    “We’re going to kill all of you,” the officers warned, according to the bus driver. A policeman approached the driver and pointed a pistol at his chest. “You, too,” the officer said.

    With a military intelligence official looking on and state and federal police officers in the immediate vicinity, witnesses said, the students were put into police vehicles and taken away. They have not been seen since.

    From your link Gardener:

    "The government's investigation determined that local police in Iguala intercepted several busloads of students from the Rural Normal School at Ayotzinapa on Sept. 26, 2014. They were allegedly turned over to a local drug cartel and killed."


    This is so awful! And what was the reason for kidnapping the kids and killing them? What am I missing here? Were they taken as sex slaves for a time? Put to work for the cartel?

    Such a horrific thing to happen and it took place over two years ago! those poor kids had to be absolutely terrified. I feel horrible for the students and their families.

    It is horrible! I'm finding more older articles on it now and I can't believe I never heard about this before. The New York Times above is very detailed on the events of the night but it seems the fate of the 43 students still remains a mystery.

    In hundreds of riveting, scathing pages, a panel of international experts has recounted the chaos and horrors that engulfed 43 Mexican college students on a rainy night in September 2014.The damning compilation of events in the panel’s 605-page report, issued Sunday, shattered the official account given by the government of what happened — yet failed to answer the most pressing questions: Where are the 43 young men? How did their lives, presumably, end? And how high in the government should blame go?

    The government, members of the investigative group said, put up roadblocks on the path to answering those questions, raising the chilling possibility that the mystery of the students’ disappearance will never be solved.

    Much of what happened that night had already been widely reported.

    From their small, rural college in Ayotzinapa, in mountainous Guerrero state just south of Mexico City, the students had gone on a spree of commandeering buses in the city of Iguala in hopes of reaching a demonstration, much as they had done many times before.

    I just read your NYTimes article Gardener - it gave a good explanation of this bloody occurrence. Absolutely terrible.

    ETA: I too can't believe I'd never heard about this before. Sickening.

    Families of the 43 Missing Students Participated in a March Sept 26, 2016:
    The government's initial investigation decided the students were killed and incinerated in a fire. But international experts have cast doubt on this theory and the families have not accepted it.
    Clemente Rodriguez's son Christian is among the missing and he believes that his son and the others are still alive and that the families will never believe the government.

    A Mexican journalist released documents Saturday from an internal affairs investigation that criticizes the government's handling of the case...

    The documents released by Anabel Hernandez say that the arrests of about a half-dozen key suspects were illegally carried out. Some of the suspects... "spontaneously confessed" in suspiciously similar language of participating in killing the students, burning their bodies or disposing of them remains.

    Those suspects gave some of the first testimony about the garbage dump and river where the students were supposedly burned, and the charred fragments of their bodies were dumped. A DNA match between one of those fragments and one of the students, and a partial match to another, represent almost the only physical evidence of the students' fate.

    The bodies of missing people are rapidly turning up in Mexico

    For three years, Mario Vergara has regularly ventured into the hills of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero to search for the remains of his brother Tomás. Although he hasn’t located his brother, he’s found dozens of buried bodies. But this isn’t unusual — it’s only evidence of a much larger problem.

    Vergara is part of a loose movement of buscadores, or searchers, spurred to action after the disappearance of 43 students in Iguala in September 2014. The students went missing after a confrontation with security forces, and the search for their remains resulted in the discovery of dozens of other bodies buried in mass graves.
