MEXICO CITY—Two priests were found dead Monday, hours after they were abducted in Mexico’s Gulf Coast state of Veracruz.
The Veracruz state prosecutors’ office said the two men were kidnapped Sunday in the northern Veracruz city of Poza Rica. Their bodies were found dumped in a field by a roadside Monday.
A third man who was abducted with them, identified as the priests’ driver, was later found alive and put under protection, officials said.
