Family members say the bodies of 30-year-old Maria Rhonita Miller, her 8-month-old twins Titus and Tiana, 12-year-old son Howard Jr. and 10-year-old Krystal were found inside a burned-out SUV. The vehicle had broken down with a flat tire before it was riddled with bullets, causing the car to explode.

Just 10 miles down the road, two other vehicles that were following the Miller's vehicle was hit. Dawna Langford, 43, along with her 2-year-old and 11-year-old children were killed.

"The way they were killed and burned and massacred is just ... God, how? Unspeakable," said family member Lafe Langford.

Mexico has dealt with a string of violent incidents in the last month. Fourteen Mexican police officers were killed after they were ambushed by drug gangs. Days later, security forces were forced to release notorious drug kingpin El Chapo's son, after heavily armed gunmen terrorized a Mexican city with heavy weapons.
