Authorities confirmed the discovery of two bodies they allege are related to the recent abduction of two Mexican federal agents who were forced to record a video accusing the government of breaking the law in secret operations against the drug cartels.

The Attorney General’s Office openly announced that forensic examinations are being carried out to verify the identity of the bodies. The human remains were discovered after intense searches by federal officials after the abduction of the two agents, according to Proceso.

The bodies were found in the trunk of a KIA in Xalisco, Nayarit.

The remains are believed to be those of 28-year-old Alfonso Hernández Villavicencio and 26-year-old Octavio Martínez Quiroz. The two worked with Mexico’s Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) and disappeared on February 5th in Nayarit.

This week, a group of armed cartel members forced the two agents to record a message where they read a script declaring that members of Mexico’s cabinet, along with top military authorities, are behind the practice of robbing cartel members and intimidating their families.

Although officials have not revealed which criminal group is responsible for the kidnapping and slaying of the agents, Breitbart Texas reported that internal information points to members of the Jalisco Cartel Nueva Generación (CJNG).
