Mexico: the body of the missing mayor elected is found after a year

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The body of Daniel Esteban Gonzalez, who went missing after winning the election in Mexico’s federal state of Guerrero, was found more than a year later.

Federal prosecutors in Guerrera announced that the remains of Gonzalez’s body, missing September 2, 2018, were found on the riverbank.

They further stated that the team of experts had gone out on the ground and that DNA analysis had shown that the remains belonged to Gonzalez.

Gonzalez’s wife, Edith Lopez Rivera, earlier said her husband and driver went missing after meeting with a deputy in the town of Tlapa.

Some members of the family of the missing Gonzalez, who won in the Cochapa El Grande election as a candidate of the Revolutionary Democratic Party (PRD), hold the opposition Revolutionary Institution (PRI) responsible.
