According to the Daily Mail, A fugitive former mayor and his wife, who the Mexican government has blamed for ordering the disappearance of 43 student teachers, have been captured by Mexican police.

Jose Luis Abarca, who is the former mayor of Iguala, and his wife Maria de los Angeles Pineda were found in Mexico City, Jose Ramon Salinas, spokesman for federal police, said on his Twitter account.

The student teachers vanished after being taken into custody by police and allegedly handed over to a drug gang in the southwestern city of Iguala after clashes on the night of September 26.

The government is still searching for the students, whose disappearance has shocked the country and undermined President Enrique Pena Nieto’s claims that Mexico has become safer under his watch.

Maria de los Angeles Pineda Villa is said to be the ‘key operator’ of crime in the town according to the Guerreros Unidos (United Warriors) cartel.

The students went missing on September 26 and it’s Pineda who has blood on her hands, The Daily Beast reported.

She ordered the police to arrest 43 students she thought were about to ruin a party she had organised for herself and hand them over to the murderous gang, according to the website.

The sites contained 38 bodies, but there has been no confirmation that any of them belong to the missing students.
It appears that the students had no intention of disrupting Pineda’s speech, but were merely travelling through the town on buses they’d hired to take them to Mexico City for a remembrance service in honour of students massacred there in 1968.

Mr. Karam said this week that it was in fact the mayor who ordered the police to confront the students, citing testimony from several officers that have been arrested during the investigation into the case.
