Mexican Band Members’ Bodies Found In Well

Band Members Found In Well

Members from a Mexican band were found at the bottom of a well in northern Mexico, according to Jorje Domene, a spokesman for the state of Nuevo Leon.

Police found 12 bodies in the well, some of which were members of the band. The band was abducted last week by an armed group.

Authorities have been able to identify four of the bodies already, including one Colombian national. Yahoo! News reports that all of the members were wearing jeans and T-shirts with the logo of the group, “Poderoso Kombo Kolombia.”

One band member was able to escape. He told police that the armed men captors asked them if they belonged to an organized crime gang. When they refused to answer, they were shot.

It isn’t clear if the surviving band member was injured or how he was able to escape. A total of 18 men were abducted from a party on Thursday near the industrial city of Monterrey. Twelve of those men were musicians; the remaining six were staff. Domene stated:

“Presumably there could be more bodies so we will extend the search as far as conditions allow it.”

The San Francisco Chronicle notes that the band members were playing at a ranch in northern Mexico when more than 10 gunmen stormed in and forced them into waiting vehicles.

The survivor was able to lead authorities to the well where searchers found the bodies of the band members. Domene added, “The search will continue … to see how many more bodies may be hidden there.”

A forensic official reported that the bodies recovered from the well showed signs of torture. He added that it is hard to tell if there are more bodies hidden in the well because of the water inside.

    When a gang asks you if you're part of a gang and you stay "silent" then either (a) you are or (b) you're stupid. Unfortunately friends with family/ friends in Mexico tell me a lot of band members sing about gang life or sometimes you get caught up in the life so not sure this is just random killings without gang ties. This story is tragic none the less.. hopefully people will learn to stay neutral, not glorify it or use common sense to avoid this.

    how incredibly closed minded – I guess to you Mexico is only full of violent gang members. I can only hope that people from other countries know not to group me in with ignorant people like you.

    it is that condescending rude attitude that lost you the white house. Stop being such a prick.

    this crime is as bad as anything that happens in the worst places in the world, the middle east for example, you have torture and beheadings and mexico has the same thing, I know mexico is a really beautiful place but you will never see me going there.

    What does water have to do with murder? Was this a sorry attempt to poke fun at other's miery? I hope nobody show up at your mother's funeral cracking jokes about whatever it is that took her life.

    They are here and have been. You see them everywhere…working! Doing the hard physical labor Americans don't want to do. You know, picking produce, building houses, cleaning, etc…etc…and for slave wages. Reality is a son of a democrat!

    it is clear that we are dealing with 3rd and maybe 4th world mentality. there are more and more bad , evil people that are very ignorant and with complete lack of any kind of feelings or rational , they are heartless , and nasty lack any moral standards and are of no use to anyone and if it would be a perfect world they would all just go "PUFF" and disappear as they are all just a waist of air. stinking savages who were born to hate and kill. to bad there mother did not eat them when they were born or god forgive me but these kinds of things/people mothers are the reason why they are this way.

    I hear the guns they were shot with were sold by Obama and Eric Holder personally ;-)
