Mexican officials are offering up to $1.72 million dollars in rewards for the capture of three men connected to the massacre of 72 immigrants outside San Fernando.

Mexico's Attorney General's Office (PGR) made the announcement on Monday morning.

PGR officials said they are offering up to $21 million pesos, or about $1.72 dollars, worth of rewards for the capture of:

Roman Rincones (aka El Coyote) Juvenal Burciaga (aka El Alacran) Jose Guadalupe Reyes-Rivera (aka El Sasi)

Authorities are offering up to $8 million pesos, or about $658,000 dollars, each for the capture of Rincones and Burciaga.

A reward of $5 million pesos, or about $411,000 dollars, is being offered for the capture of Reyes-Rivera.

Action 4 News spoke to PGR officials in Mexico City, who reported photographs of the suspects were not available.

Marines found the bodies of 72 Central and South American immigrants at a ranch in the Ejido Huizachal just outside San Fernando back in August..

According to a survivor, the immigrants were killed by members of the Zetas drug cartel because the immigrants refused to work for the cartel.

Mexican authorities arrested seven suspects in the case back in September but PGR officials said their cases are still pending.

Two law enforcement officials investigating the case went missing back in September.

Anyone with information about the case or the three men is asked to contact authorities as o 01-800-831-31-96.
