In the majority of cases, mentions of loved ones did not bring new information but simply offered an official version of what had transpired—that an individual was killed by unknown individuals, or else nothing more than a brief mention of the name. I have found documents about my closest loved ones dead, their photos, very painful things, María Elena told me, trailing off in tears as gunshots from the police firing range pounded in the background.
