Funerals held in La Mora for victims killed in Mexico family ambush

LA MORA, Mexico — Funeral services were held Thursday for two of the women and six of the children ambushed and killed by cartel members in a remote mountainous region in Sonora.

In the first of two funerals, family members and friends of Dawna Langford, 43, and her two children, Trevor Langford, 11, and Rogan Langford, 2, honored their memory during an emotional service in the close-knit community of La Mora. Hundreds of people from the U.S. and Mexico showed up, packing row after row of seats set up in Langford’s front yard.

Family members carried the three wooden caskets out from the house to the front yard, with the smallest casket for 2-year-old Rogan coming out last. For more than 30 minutes, relatives paid their respects before the service began. Several of Langford’s 13 children shared memories of their mother and two siblings killed in Monday’s attack.
