Drug War?

I'm pretty sure if the situation were ever resolved that drugs were involved or that it is a part of the drug wars in Mexico making its way north to the US.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office on Sunday identified the charred remains of one of two people found dead inside a burning minivan Thursday morning as 20-year-old Carlos Alvarado-Ordorica.

Alvarado-Ordorica, a Mexican national, and another still unidentified person were shot multiple times before being set on fire inside a van in a West Side neighborhood, according to the medical examiner's office. Their deaths have been ruled a homicide.

The other occupant of the van has not yet been positively identified, but authorities at the scene Thursday said they believe it is a woman due to the noticeably “smaller frame.”

Emergency crews responding to a vehicle fire at the intersection of Silvercrest Road and West Horseshoe Bend discovered the bodies around 4:50 a.m. Thursday. The two were found lying next to each other in the back of a smoldering 2001 Dodge Caravan.
