CHIHUAHUA, Mexico (KYMA, KSWT, KECY) - A Mexican police chief was arrested in connection with the massacre of a Mormon family.
On November 4, 2019, three women and six children were killed in the northern Mexico state of Sonora by suspected drug cartel members.
The victims held dual U.S. and Mexican citizenship, part of a large community of Mormons living in Mexico.
The victims were gunned down while driving in a remote dirt road south of the border.
Since then, the F.B.I. has worked with Mexican officials in the investigation.
Reuters reports that Mexican authorities have arrested Fidel Alejandro Villegas, a police chief in the small town of Janos.
Villegas is suspected of being involved in the massacre of the families.
