Mexico: What happened to the 43 students?

January 28th, 2015 | No Comments

43 student teachers disappeared four months ago in Iguala, in the Mexican state of Guerrero. Now Mexico’s Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam says there is “legal certainty” they were murdered,

As to why they were killed, Tomás Zerón de Lucio, the head of Mexico’s Criminal Investigations Agency, said it was a case of mistaken identity. In other words, the criminal group accused of executing the students thought they belonged to a rival gang, also operating around the town of Iguala where the students were last seen.

So far, one one has been identified, which the head of the Criminal Investigations Agency blames on how the remains were disposed,

“The dental remains found in what was the middle of the fire show that the temperature reached 1,600 degrees Celsius (2,912 degrees Fahrenheit), which dehydrated, decomposed, intervened and fused the remains. This makes it impossible to extract DNA samples, even with the most advanced technology,”

Considering how cremation of a dead body is carried out at a temperature ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit in a controlled chamber that is not subject to humidity, wind, and other exterior or environmental factors, this raises more questions.

Indeed, the students’ parents reject the government’s theory, and are accusing the government of trying to close the investigation.

The case has generated a great deal of controversy, as there are contradictory statements from witnesses, but lack of definitive forensic evidence.

Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto declared yesterday,

“I’m convinced that we should not remain trapped in this instant, this moment in Mexico’s history, of sorrow, of tragedy and pain. We just can’t dwell here,”

which of course is very convenient for him.

For people like myself, the Iguala case shows Mexico as a failed state when it comes to justice and the rule of law – not a country one wants to maintain an open border with.
