Body of Priest Kidnapped 6 Months Ago found in Mass Grave in Mexico


A Ugandan Catholic priest has been identified as one of the bodies found in a mass grave in Mexico last month.

Fr John Ssenyondo had been missing since being kidnapped by gunmen six months ago.

His car was blocked by unknown attackers who then forced him into their vehicle on April 30.

Police found the mass grave whilst looking for 43 student teachers who went missing at the end of September.

Officers have now revealed the bodies found in the grave near the town of Ocotitlan were not the students.

Dental records and DNA had to be used to identify Fr Ssenyondo, who had been in Mexico for five years.

Revd Victor Aguilar, vicar in the diocese of Chilpancingo-Chilapa, told the BBC: “We don’t know the motive, you know violence is widespread in the state.”

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
