Mexico has very strict gun control. Except when our ATF slips a few guns over the border, I guess.
Authorities in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon have concluded the work of recovering and identifying a total of 17 bodies found in a well, officials said Wednesday.
All of the victims were associated with the band Kombo Kolombia.
The bodies, the last of which were recovered Tuesday afternoon, were found inside the well at an abandoned ranch in the town of Mina thanks to information from a band member who had escaped from the gunmen that abducted the group last week.
The bodies of the victims – 13 musicians, one of them a Colombian citizen; three assistants; and one sound engineer – have already been handed over to their relatives, the state Attorney General’s Office said.
The group performed at a private function at the La Carreta bar – in Hidalgo, a town next to Mina – on Thursday night, just hours before a group of roughly 10 gunmen showed up in four SUVs and kidnapped 18 musicians and crew.
