The two went missing in early September, and authorities discovered their bodies on September 19 in Pueblo Viejo, Veracruz. 

At the time, Ali Landry, the wife of Alejandro Gómez Monteverde, took to Instagram to thank her family, friends and fans for their support during the difficult circumstances. "The events surrounding my family were tragic and what has happened will profoundly affect our lives forever," she wrote. "But my Father in Law was the kind of man that radiated pure joy and it was infectious. He loved and adored his family more than anything... My brother in law was such a hard working business owner. He was an incredible salsa dancer. He was fluent in Japanese, and we all looked up to him."
