Mexico identifies 4 corpses as missing doctors, lawyer

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Prosecutors say four bodies discovered June 19 in the southern Mexico state of Guerrero are those of three doctors and a lawyer who had been reported missing earlier in the month.

Guerrero state prosecutors said Sunday that DNA tests had matched the bodies to relatives of the missing men.

The men had vanished when they were on a trip to the state capital to do some paperwork.

Their decomposed bodies were later found in the back of a pickup truck on a rural road outside of the state capital of Chilpancingo.

The missing men's families have said they don't believe the bodies are those of their relatives.

State prosecutors have said they also awaiting test results from federal labs to help rule out doubts.
