Edith Y El Tsunami - Mexican Musicians Executed And Burned In Latest Border Violence
Three members of Mexican pop act Edith Y El Tsunami have been killed in an apparent drug-related execution.
The charred remains of singer Edith Gonzalez, 31, her husband Humberto Ledezma Rodriguez and her nephew Julio Cesar Segocia Gonzalez were found inside the trunk of a car in Michoacan.
All three appear to have been executed at gunpoint and then set on fire, according to local officials.
The trio had been reported missing after performing a show in Pueblo Nuevo last weekend (21Jun14).
The murders are the latest in a series of musician-related executions in Mexico - in May (14), singer Tomas Tovar Rascon was fatally shot while he was enjoying lunch at a restaurant in Sonora, and last year (Jan13), 18 band and staff members of Kombo Kolombia were kidnapped during a private show. Their bodies were pulled from a well the following day.
