By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 06 November, 2010

(Acapulco, NA 6 November) Four family members of the disappeared “Michoacán 20” arrived in Acapulco and identified five of the 18 of the cadavers exhumed on Thursday in an abandoned field near “Tres Palos” in rural Acapulco. The women have been in prolonged conferences with forensic experts and were shown photos and personal belongings of the dead persons previously located and taken to a local morgue. The names of the family members are withheld for reasons of security. The government attorney’s office where the interviews took place has been specially fortified and guarded against attack, and the public is not permitted to enter or exit. The four representatives of the family members of the “Michoacán 20” are expected to remain in the compound for several days, working with government criminologists. The twenty men from Michoacán disappeared from the traffic circle in Costa Azul in Acapulco last September 30, kidnapped by a rival drug gang.
