Mexico, D.F. - On Tuesday, Jesús Murillo Karam, Mexico's Attorney General in a news conference confirmed that DNA tests done on 28 burnt bodies found in five clandestine graves in Iguala came out negative to 43 missing Ayotizanapa students. Karam said, that 15 suspects have recently been detained in connection with the missing Iguala students. 14 of those suspects are municipal police officers from Cocula, Guerrero. The remaining suspect is an administrative supervisor from the Cocula municipal police who allegedly managed to alter odometers from squad cars and falsified records to hide their involvement with the Iguala missing students. Along with the 15 suspects, Cocula Mayor César Miguel Peñaloza was also arrested.
The federal and state investigation into the missing 43 iguala students, since September 27 implicated municipal police from both Iguala and Cocula. The investigation provided information that municipal police personnel from Iguala and Cocula were involved in the student kidnappings and are connected to the Guerreros Unidos. 
According to Karam and Tomás Zerón de Lucio, the director of the Federal Investigation Agency, one is a supervisor and 14 are municipal police officers from Cocula and 24 suspects have confessed to kidnapping and handing over some of the missing Iguala students to the Guerrero Unidos criminal organization. 22 Iguala corrupt municipal police officers were arrested as well after the students were first reported missing and multiple victims were killed. The suspects were all working alongside the Guerreros Unidos when students were fatally shot. The students were unarmed.
According to Commissioner Monte Alejandro Rubido, the head of National Security, 300 of 896 federal police officers are assigned to search for the 43 missing students in Iguala. 
Benjamin Mondragon Pereda from the municipality of Jiutepec in the state of Morelos committed suicide early Tuesday after federal police surrounded his residence, according to Rubido. He died of self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Pereda was a leader of the Guerreros Unidos.
Karam said, nearly 50 suspects involved in murder and the kidnapping of 43 Iguala students have been arrested. The federal investigation is seeking information to identify, locate and prosecute the masterminds of the September 26-27 massacre of students in Iguala.
The federal and state attorney general's office are searching for Iguala Mayor José Luis Abarca Velázquez, his wife, María de los Ángeles Pineda and Felipe Flores Velázquez, Iguala's Public Security Director who have disappeared and went into hiding after the students were kidnapped and some were brutally tortured and killed. Abarca Velázquez, Pineda Villa and Flores Velázquez have been implicated in the students murders. At least nine clandestine graves have been discovered and 28 bodies have been recovered.
In an unrelated homicide, Mayor Abarca Velázquez is also accused of personally killing Arturo Hernández Cardona, the leader of the United Popular organization from Guerrero in late May to early June 2013, according to a notarized affidavit from Nicolás Mendoza who witnessed the cold blooded murder by Abarca Velázquez. Abarca Velázquez shot Cardona in the face and chest while saying "I'm going to have the pleasure of killing you" as Flores Velázquez watched, according to Mendoza. Félix Rafael Bandera Román and Ángel Román Ramírez were also killed. Román attemped to escape and was fatally shot and Ramírez tried to run from another location where the remaining five kidnapped victims were taken to be executed. The victims had been tortured and beaten for several days. Mayor Abarca Velázquez and Flores Velázquez were not charged for the murders in 2013 because the Guerrero state Attorney General's Office filed the case and didn't act. Federal prosecutor, Karam confirmed to Aristegui that René Bejarano from the PRD political party had mentioned Mayor Abarca Velázquez 2013 Cardona murder case to him when Bejarano was at the PGRF talking to Karam for a different issue, but Bejarano never gave Karam the file and evidence to prosecute Abarca Velázquez as he promised. Karam has now taken up the Cardona, Román and Ramírez murder case against Mayor Abarca Velázquez. If Abarca Velázquez would have been prosecuted by the Guerrero state Attorney General's Office for the Cardona, Román and Ramírez murders in 2013, the Iguala student massacre could have been avoided, according to Karam.
A $1M pesos ($77K U.S.) reward is being offered by the state of Guerrero for information leading to finding the 43 Iguala missing students.
