Eleven partially burned bodies of young adults have been found in southwestern Mexico, just an hour's drive from where 43 missing college students went to school
Police haven't publicly identified the remains, and officials have not said whether there is any connection between the bodies and the September 2014 disappearances of the 43 students - a case that has led to unrest over allegations that police abducted them, on order of a mayor, and turned them over to a gang that killed them. The 11 bodies were discovered near Chilapa, about an hour's drive west of Escuela Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa, a small college devoted to training students to become teachers in Mexico's impoverished countryside. Some of the 11 bodies were decapitated, according to Guerrero state officials.
