A French couple missing for a month in Mexico may have been killed and buried under the patio of a hostel they ran, it has emerged.
Police have reportedly found two bodies buried under the Hostal Catrina de Candelaria, in the city of Yucatan in Valladolid, Mexico, which are believed to be the pair.
Social media reports said that the bodies were found with their hands and feet bound and plastic bags over their heads.
Police have not yet confirmed the reports.
French nationals Assya Madjour, 50, and Michel Amado, 57, have been missing for more than a month.
A two-day police search of their hotel and its grounds on 14th and 15th October – is said to have unearthed the two bodies.
Michel had reportedly been living in Mexico for the past 15 years while Assya moved to the country two years ago.
The couple went missing after they both travelled to a town known as San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas, Mexico, for a spiritual retreat, according to family members.
One line of investigation police are studying is the possibility that the couple’s murderers rented a room at the hostel in order to study their movements.
Their disappearance come just weeks after the couple wed in August and celebrated with a large party.
The couple began to run Hostal Catrina after they bought the small business from a Dutch businessman a few years ago, according to reports.
