Mother was told her children were beaten at Mexican military barracks
By Aaron Nelsen : October 31, 2014

PROGRESO — The mother of three Americans whose bodies were found in Mexico on Wednesday said a soldier at a military installation in Matamoros witnessed the siblings enter the barracks earlier this month with members of a recently formed police unit called Grupo Hercules.

But the soldier told the mother that said he feared for the safety of his family if he had intervened.

“He told us Erica was very beaten, and Jose Angel's legs were injured,” said Raquel Alvarado, 46, the mother said referring to her daughter and one of her sons who were killed. “They hit her as though she were a man.”

On Thursday, Pedro Alvarado, the father of the three Americans, identified the bodies of his children from soiled articles of clothing and photographs of tattoos on their bodies.
