Mexico City: Prosecutors in Mexico confirmed Friday that six women who went missing on March 7 were killed and their bodies burned by a gang of armed men. It was one of the largest collective killings of a group of women in recent years in Mexico. The women disappeared earlier this month on a road near the city of Celaya in the farming and industrial state of Guanajuato. But state prosecutor Carlos Zamarripa said Friday that experts had found skeletal remains “almostly completely burned” in raids on several properties Thursday. DNA tests matched five of the missing women, and more test were being conducted.
