43 Students Missing in Mexico Since September

A Mexican mayor, José Luis Abarca Velázquez, and his wife, María de los Ángeles Pineda Villa, have been implicated in the controversy surrounding the  disappearance of 43 students last month, as authorities have revealed.

The 43 students who vanished on September 26 were all enrolled at the Ayotzinapa Teachers College.

Fusion reports that three or four students were killed when police tried to detain  the students. They were heading to a speech that Pindea was scheduled to give.

Fusion reports that the students were unarmed and the students were killed when police opened fire on the buses they were riding.

A mass grave was taped off  after  28  bodies  were found  in them near Iguala, Mexico.

The 43  students have been missing  since they were  arrested by the police in the southern city of Iguala a month ago.

It is suspected that the mayor and his wife had connections to a drug cartel.
