LA MESA, NM - We now know three of four bodies found in the back of a pick-up truck on Monday are men from La Mesa, New Mexico.

Rafael Morales Valencia, his brother Jaime, and their uncle Guadalupe Morales Arriola were kidnapped after a wedding on Friday. Gunmen stormed into the catholic church, killed one guest and took off with the three men. Rafeal Morales Valencia was the groom, now the family's neighbors in La Mesa are in shock.

"[There are] too many killings all ready, and they're killing innocent people, innocent kids. I feel really bad about it, you know, and I wish they would stop it," Santa Montelongo said.

Neighbors say the groom's father lives in a La Mesa, NM home. It was the groom, his brother and uncle who were found dead, and neighbors say that's too close for comfort.

"I never thought it would be this close by, I thought they were just from up there, you know, but I never thought the people were from here," Montelongo said.

"I feel really sorry for what happened. No one deserves what happened to those men," Neighbor Guadalupe Macias said.

if the mexican people are leaving their county. why do american citizens keep going accross the border. how stupid can some people be.

Sounds to me like one or all of them had something to do with the drug flow.......innocent? Maybe not.

People just don't learn - stay out of Mexico.

CITIZENS OF MEXICO:
Be proud of your country and restore it to its once glorious state. Stand up for your rights and demand to live without fear such as this in your own country.

If your government can't get the job done then the voice of the people shall rein supreme when there is more of you, then them.

A body of goverment can't exist without its people. You control what happens in it so do it for future generations to live without this fear.

VIVA REVOLUCION!!!!

well said. I just do not understand why they cannot arrest the killers. Come on people of Juarez take your city back. I am still going there (Going for 25 years every two month to have my hair cut) so why cant your stay there and fight. God bless you all.

FHERO I AGREE WITH YOU. THERE ARE WONDERFUL PEOPLE IN MEXICO AND THEY ALL SHOULD GET TOGETHER TO TAKE BACK THEIR COUNTRY. THE CARTEL "ANIMALS" HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO REGARD FOR LIFE - KILLING CHILDREN, INNOCENT BYSTANDERS, KILLING THE WRONG PEOPLE. THE CARTEL MEMBERS ARE KILLING OFF THEIR OWN AND SOON WILL LOSE THEIR POWER. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE U.S. PROVIDE THE GOOD PEOPLE OF MEXICO WITH WEAPONS AND TRAINING INSTEAD OF GIVING THE GOVERNMENT LOTS OF MONEY WHICH NO DOUBT ENDS UP IN WRONG HANDS.
