Two missing indigenous boys have been found dismembered inside a box being wheeled around on a sack barrow in the middle of Mexico City.

Alan Yair Silvestre Becerril, 12, and Hector Efrain Tolentino de Jesus, 14, were last seen on 27th October.

The two boys, of the Mazahua indigenous community, were reported as missing by concerned relative, and an amber alert was issued by the authorities after two days.


According to the news source Debate, the boys went to San Hipolito Church before the 14-year-old asked his younger friend to come to his girlfriend’s house with him.

They were not seen alive again.

The girlfriend said they planned to watch an illegal motorcycle race, but the boys never made it to her home.


After the victims’ gruesome remains were found in a box in the middle of the sprawling Mexican capital, the General Attorney’s Office confirmed they were the missing boys on 1st November.

Mexico City mayor Claudia Sheinbaum called the incident “terrible” and added that she has “never seen a case like it”.

Eduardo, 39, who was caught wheeling the box around on a sack barrow, was arrested at the scene and was later identified as a suspected member of the criminal organisation Union Tepito.


Sheinbaum said that the case could be linked to drug trafficking in the city centre.

Tolentino de Jesus’s family said that they suspected he had started selling drugs to pay for his studies and believe he was probably killed.

Forensic tests showed that both boys had been tortured and mutilated, according to Debate.


The investigation is ongoing.
