South of the border, down Mejico way

Mexican police on Friday discovered the bodies of three people related to a human rights activist who was killed last year in the volatile northern border state of Chihuahua.

The bodies of a sister and brother of Josefina Reyes and her sister-in-law were found in the desert outside Guadalupe Distrito Bravos, southeast of Ciudad Juarez, said Carlos Gonzalez, spokesman for the state prosecutor's office.

The three had been missing since Feb. 7, when witnesses reported that armed men forced the trio from a vehicle.

The bodies of Maria Magdalena Reyes Salazar, Elias Reyes Salazar and his wife, Luisa Ornelas, were found with messages alluding to organized crime, according to Gonzalez, who did not immediately release details.

Their bodies appear to have been buried, then dug up again and left on a road, as if someone wanted to call attention to their deaths.

Please note - - this is occurred "in the volatile northern border state of Chihuahua", directly across our largely unguarded, unsecured border with Mexico.
