Mexico missing band: Bodies found in Nuevo Leon well

Police in Mexico have recovered eight bodies from a well in the northern state of Nuevo Leon which they say are probably those of a band reported missing on Friday.

Twenty members of Kombo Kolombia were feared kidnapped when they disappeared after playing a gig on Thursday night.

Police said one of the band members managed to escape from the kidnappers.

He led officers to the well, where they found the bodies wearing the band's distinctive T-shirts, they added.

Surviving Mexico band member leads police to bodies

MONTERREY, Mexico

The Colombian-style music group was playing at a ranch in northern Mexico when at least 10 gunmen entered the warehouse where the private party was being held and forced them and several crew members into waiting vehicles, a survivor of the attack told authorities.

Nuevo Leon state security spokesman Jorge Domene said the survivor, a member of the Kombo Kolombia band, told police the 18 were blindfolded and driven on dirt roads until they stopped. He then heard the assailants ask fellow band members if they belonged to a drug cartel, shots were fired and the bodies were dumped into a well.

Domene said the survivor, who is being protected by soldiers, was able to reach a nearby ranch and get help. He wouldn't give details on how the man was able to escape.

4. Why isnt this a huge news story? Mexico is out of control. Maybe

we need to send troops there instead of the Middle East. This story is grisly and vastly underreported.
