An official version of events released by the Attorney General in January states that the 43 missing students were turned over to the Guerreros Unidos drug gang by local authorities. They were kidnapped, burned in a local dump, and tossed into a river. However, a report released on September 6 by the Inter-America Commission on Human Rights, determined that the official goverment explanation is scientifically impossible. 

A fire expert hired by IACHR concluded that no evidence existed to suggest that the bodies of any of the students had been cremated at the dump. 

Peña Nieto reportedly instructed that government agencies analyze and incorporate elements of a recent IACHR's report on the missing students into their current investigation. "Mexico will continue making efforts aimed at learning the truth and having justice in the Ayotzinapa case," the secretariat said.
