Three US Citizens in Group of Four Dead in Tijuana

Baja California authorities are looking into the deaths of four people who's bodies were found in a van in Tijuana last weekend. Mexican authorities say three are US citizens, incuding a 19 year old woman and two men who were 21 and 23. Officials say the fourth woman was 20 and a Mexican citizen.

The Baja California's State Attorney General's statement says the bodies were wrapped in blankets and showed signs of severe injury. The van was found in a residential neighborhood in eastern Tijuana.

US Consular officials in Tijuana were not available to comment on the case due to the late hour.

Tijuana's murder rate has dropped this year, compared to the unprecedented violence in the city last fall and winter.
