Two Mexican investigators working on last month's massacre of 72 migrants may have been murdered, authorities said Wednesday.

Two dead bodies recently found in northern Mexican state of Tamaulipas appeared to be those of the two investigators, according to a spokesman from the state's attorney general's office (PGR).

"We are doing the forensic work to confirm their identities, but everything indicates that they are investigators," the spokesman told Xinhua by telephone.

Roberto Jaime Suzrez Vazquez, the first police investigator arriving at the scene of the massacre on Aug. 24, went missing three days later.

Vazquez's clothing and identification documents were found on one of the two dead bodies mentioned above. The second body appears to be that of Juan Carlos Suarez Sanchez, a public security secretary.

Police is conducting DNA tests to confirm the identities of the two bodies.
