(Fox News) At least three American women and six of their children were senselessly gunned down in northern Mexico on Monday in a massacre believed to have been carried out by cartel gunmen.
The victims ranged in age from 8 months to 43 years old.
“They were ambushed by the Mexican cartels; shot, burned, and murdered in cold blood. These were innocent civilians, American citizens simply trying to live peaceful lives,” relative Kendra Lee Miller said in a lengthy Facebook post Tuesday morning.
Miller, 31, was killed along with four of her children: Howard Jacob Miller, Jr., age 12; Krystal Bellaine Miller, 10; and 8-month-old twins Titus Alvin Miller and Tiana Gricel Miller.
Before her death, she placed her 7-month-old daughter Faith on the floor of the bullet-ridden vehicle, where she was found alive and unharmed in her car seat, Miller wrote on Facebook.
Similar to Johnson, Langford’s body was discovered in a separate location, Langford Jr. told the Tribune.
11 children survived
Between the three families, 11 children miraculously survived, with some suffering injuries.
