A Mexican gang killed three students and then dissolved their bodies in acid after mistaking them for rivals, according to prosecutors.

Javier Salomon Aceves, 25, Jesus Daniel Diaz, 20, and Marco Garcia Avalos, 20, who attended the University of Audiovisual Media, were kidnapped in Tonala, Guadalajara, after their car broke down last month.

Jalisco state prosecutors said they were tortured before they were killed.

A lead investigator also claimed they initially beat one student to death and then decided they ‘had to execute the other two’.

‘Subsequently their bodies were dissolved in acid so that no trace of them remained,’ the state prosecutor’s office said.
