FBI is investigating the case of 43 missing students in Mexico

The FBI is reportedly involved in investigating the case of the 43 missing college students who are suspected to be dead in Mexico. SEE ALSO: The 43 missing students through the eyes of a ‘Normalista’ in the US The announcement came Monday in the midst of more mass graves being discovered in the State of Guerrero, an area of Mexico ravished by police corruption and violence, even though only one dead 21-year-old victim has been positively identified as one of the students. The mystery of where the students may be continues. “The Mexican foreign ministry has said that the US ambassador to Mexico, Anthony Wayne, has offered help to the Guerrero government in the framework of the Merida Initiative,” Telemundo’s Julio Vaqueiro reported on MSNBC News, Monday. Vaqueiro is referring to an accord reached between Mexico and the United States in 2009 to combat the war on drugs. The investigative expertise of the FBI might bring a break in the case that has a country up in arms–and some parents still hopeful that the students are still alive. Police forces weren’t the ones who uncovered the latest graves discovered in Guerrero, but instead a civic group named “Union of People & Organizations of Guerrero” has been credited with finding 17 more mass graves in Iguala. Sergio Alcocer, the sub secretary of foreign relations in the northern part of Mexico said Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam confirmed the presence of FBI agents in Mexico who helped organize the initial investigation into the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa. No details have been made public as to the progress the FBI might have made in the case. The Mexican government contends that the 43 missing students were killed, their bodies burned and put in mass graves in the state of Guerrero, even though some parents hold out hope that they might be alive somewhere. Protests, and sometimes violent clashes, against police and the government continue to take place in the State of Guerrero and even Mexico City. The former mayor of Iguala and his wife were arrested last month for their alleged involvement with local police in the disappearance of the students.
