Fugitive former mayor Jose Luis Abarca (R) and his wife Maria de los Angeles Pineda attend an event in Chilpancingo in this March 25, 2014 file photo. Mexican police have captured Abarca and his wife, suspected of being the probable masterminds behind the abduction of 43 student teachers feared massacred in September, officials said. Police working with a local drug gang in the southwestern city of Iguala abducted the students after clashes there on the night of September 26, seriously undermining President Enrique Pena Nieto's claims that Mexico has become safer on his watch. Jose Luis Abarca, who at the time was mayor of Iguala, and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda, were captured by federal police in a house in Mexico City early November 4, 2014 and were being questioned by prosecutors, a government official said.
