2 Americans found dead in northern Mexico

MEXICO CITY (AP) - The U.S. Embassy in Mexico says two Americans have been slain outside the northern industrial city of Monterey, an area plagued by drug violence. It identifies them as John and Wanda Casias.

The embassy says their family has been notified and it is providing relatives consular services.

The embassy hasn't confirmed reports that the killing happened Tuesday. Its statement provides no other details.

Valerie Alirez in Greeley, Colorado, is John Casias' eldest child. She says he and his wife were found dead Tuesday in Santiago, Nuevo Leon, by one of her brothers.
