PROGRESO – A Progreso mother is now getting answers from the Mexican government in the deaths of her three children.

On Tuesday, the government of Tamaulipas announced it accepts the recommendations from an independent investigation.

The National Human Rights Commission of Mexico announced last week they found evidence that point to the Mexican Marines being involved in the killings of three Progreso siblings back in 2014.

Last week, CHANNEL 5 NEWS reported the commission said the marines illegally detained the victims.

The commission found Erica Alvarado, Alex Alvarado, Jose Angel Alvarado and a Mexican acquaintance “deprived of their freedom’ near the Los Indios International Bridge.

Their bodies were found two weeks later with gunshot wounds to the head.

In a statement, the government of Tamaulipas says they accept these findings and are complying with the commission’s investigation.

The government goes on to say they will provide support to the parents in the form of psychological care and grief counseling.

They also state they will train state police on matters of forced disappearances of people.

Tamaulipas’ government did not make any comments on the actions of the military. They do say they’ll comply with the investigation.

Last week when we spoke with the mother of the victims, she said she waited more than three years to finally see progress in the case.

We’ll keep tracking this case and let you know the outcome.
