The Sánchez Pérez family (above) disappeared in September 2016, while attending the Beer Festival, now six months later their remains were discovered  in one of the dozens of  clandestine graves, also known as “narco fosas”  in Alvarado, Veracruz. Narcofosas are mass graves used by cartels to dispose of bodies.

On Sunday,  the Attorney General's Office confirmed that the Queretanos were found, buried in one of the graves in Arbolillo, Alvarado, along with at least 44 more bodies.  

As of now only 6 persons have been identified from the remains unearthed.

Veracruz is notorious for its narcofosas, with thousands of bodies being discovered in the past decade.  More than any other state in Mexico. Funding allocated by the federal government to Veracruz for DNA data cataloguing, was allegedly pilfered, during the corrupt administration of Javier Duarte.  There are only 276 DNA results, instead of the thousands that should be in the data bank.
