1. Three suspects detained in connection with murder of two Australian tourists in Mexico.
Three people have been detained in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, suspected to be the murderers of Australian tourists, Adam Coleman and Dean Lucas.
State prosecutor, Marco Antonia Higuera, said the individuals are low-level drug dealers who were operating in conjunction with a highway robbery gang. It is believed the three were robbing motorists on a highway heading south through Navolato, Sinaloa, when Coleman resisted them.
Allegedly, the suspects lethally shot the men before dousing their vehicle with gasoline and torching it.
While the two charred bodies inside the van have not been successfully identified, a Mexican official has said that the van’s identification numbers match a van owned by Coleman.
The men went missing on November 20 as they were travelling to the city of Guadalajara to visit Mr Coleman’s girlfriend.
