On March 19th, 2010, the Mexican government announced the death of two hit men, armed to the teeth, in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo León. Days later, it was discovered that they were in fact honor students who had been tortured and murdered by the military, which later tried to disappear them in a common grave. To this day, the military continue to deny any responsibility, but the hope of getting justice and the truth is more alive than ever.
