In this frame grab taken from video filmed by a surveillance camera on Jan 20, 2012, and released by the Jalisco state prosecutors' office on June 14, 2012, three men walk away from a hotel in their underwear with their hands tied behind their backs and some blindfolded, as they are led by men dressed in police uniforms toward police vehicles in Lagos de Moreno, Mexico. The men later were found asphyxiated and beaten to death. Jalisco prosecutors' spokesman Lino Gonzalez said Thursday June 14, 2012 that the five officers, their commander and the local police chief in Lagos de Moreno have been detained pending charges.
