Mexico’s attorney general, Jesus Murillo Karam, gave a press conference broadcast Friday Nov. 7th, confirming that apparently the victims were thrown into a garbage dump–some of them already dead–and lit a fire that ran for over 12 hours in an effort to get rid of the victims.

The group of students boarded two buses from La Normal Rural, a teacher’s college in Guerrero State before disappearing on September 26th.

As the news quickly escalated, many celebrities voiced their own opinion on the mishap.

Romantic ballad singer Marco Antonio Solis took time off his busy schedule to show compassion to the family members of the victims.

“Unido al dolor que la maldad y la injusticia del mundo ha dejado en el corazón de la familia de las víctimas de Ayotzinapa. Unido al luto de México y al grito de paz por este pais que lo ha sufrido todo. Que Dios les de la fortaleza y el entendimiento de esta desdicha,” he said on Instagram.

The singer known as El Buki, also encouraged his countrymen to be truly conscious and fight towards a harmonious, prosperous and peaceful Mexico.
