Mina, Nuevo León, Mexico - On Sunday, some of the bodies of the 16 members of the Kombo Kolombia band have been found inside a water well in the (municipality) town of Mina. The well was found at 5:00 p.m. at the Coyote ranch by authorities with the help of a helicopter and with the aid of a victim that had escaped.
Authorities say, it was with the aid of one of the members of the band that had escaped before being killed. He escaped and then got a ride from a passerby who dropped him off at a gas station. The surviving member called family members to let them know what had happened. The authorities were called afterwards.
The man told authorities that they were kidnapped by a group of men and then were beaten. They transported the kidnap victims in various vehicles.
When they arrived in Mina, the suspects took three members at a time and made them get on their knees and then shot them in the head.
The first of the bodies was brought to the surface around 11:00 p.m. and was wearing the Kombo Kolombia style of clothing.
The band members performed at a bar for a private party on Friday in the municipality of Hidalgo where most reside. They were reported missing after the performance when relatives couldn't reach them or get an answer on their cell phones.
Authorities found most of their vehicles at the bar. A truck from Nuevo Laredo was confiscated at the crime scene in Mina by authorities believed to have been used to transport the bodies to the abandon water well.
At least 16 members of the Kombo Kolombia band and four crew members have been reported missing since early Friday. Nuevo León Governor Rodrigo Medina confirmed, that the bodies found at the water well in the town of Mina are believed to be members of the band that were reported missing.
Forensic examination of the bodies is underway to determine, if in fact they're the missing band members. The bodies taken out of the water well were wearing clothing consistent with the group's style of performing clothes and logo, according to authorities.
This is the second largest crime scene found in the state of Nuevo León, since 20 tourist bodies were discovered several years ago.
