While Mexican prosecutors declared last year that 43 missing students were incinerated at a landfill, official documents published show that one gang suspect testified that at least nine were slaughtered elsewhere.

A review by AFP of hundreds of pages found contradictory testimony among some of the more than 100 suspects who have been detained, including Guerreros Unidos drug cartel members and municipal police officers.

The report — divided into 85 tomes and 13 annexes with several redacted names and paragraphs — was made public by Attorney General Arely Gomez following freedom of information requests from journalists. It is rare for Mexican authorities to make investigative documents public online.
