Official word from the Mexican government says the former mayor of Nuevo Laredo was found dead in Monterrey.
A forensic pathologist in Monterrey confirmed a body found recently is that of Benjamin Galvan Gomez; also dead alongside him was well-known Nuevo Laredo businessman Miguel Angel Ortiz.
The Attorney General of the State of Tamaulipas was notified after the bodies were found Monday in Garcia, Nuevo Leon.
The former Nuevo Laredo mayor disappeared the 27th of February, reportedly kidnapped as he came out from a pharmacy. He was with Ortiz when it happened near his home.
The State of Tamaulipas is vowing to bring those responsible to justice.
