According to a statement released by Mexico's Attorney General, authorities arrested three suspects linked to the massacre of nine members of the LeBarón family, a breakaway Mormon community that settled in Mexico over 100 years ago, earlier today.

Last month, federal authorities arrested a man in relation to the massacre of three women and six children in Bavispe, Sonora.

The statement explains that authorities have obtained essential information and evidence in regards to the case.

The statement issued by the Attorney General's Office adds that FBI agents have been involved in the investigations.

Nevertheless, Julián LeBarón, who participated in a demonstration against violence in Mexico today, said he hasn't been informed about the arrests made earlier today and expects to receive more information tomorrow, as he and the LeBarón family will meet with President López Obrador tomorrow.
