On February 12, accompanied by his relatives, parents and fellow-students from Ayotzinapa, the body of Julio Cesar Mondragon Fontes, the murdered student teacher whose body was found with the skin removed form his face in Iguala, Guerrero, on September 27, 2014, was buried for the second time after his remains were exhumed on November 4, 2015. It took three months to take samples that would allow a new necropsy. During the visit of bishop Raul Vera to the state capital of Guerrero, where he took part in an event with the relatives of the victims of violence, Julio Cesar Mondragon’s uncle said that the only demand of the whole family is that the truth be known and the facts be clear. “The days pass, the months pass, a year passed and we found historic truths, full of perverse intentions which have been proved by international organizations…September, 2014, when Marisa his wife, a server and other family members came to identify the body, we hoped that this nightmare was a lie but unfortunately that wasn’t the case…” After the reburial, investigations which lead to the truth of what happened on September 26, 2014 will be continued. “These investigations are carried out mainly by the Argentinian Unit of Forensic Anthropology (Equipo Argentino de Antropología Forense – EAAF) and the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (Grupo Interdisciplinario de Expertos Independientes – GIEI)”, the family of the student and those accompanying them pointed out.
