Three suspects in the brutal massacre of an American Mormon family in Mexico last month were arrested Sunday, authorities said, bringing the total number of people detained for the killings up to four.

None of the individuals arrested have yet been named by authorities.

Capture - Month - Mothers - Children - LeBarón

Their capture comes nearly a month after three mothers and six children of the LeBarón family, all dual U.S-Mexican nationals, were shot dead and burned by suspected cartel gunmen on a remote dirt road in the state of Sonora.

Eight other children survived the heinous November 4 ordeal - five of which were injured - by hiding out for hours in the nearby brush awaiting help.

Gunfire - Suburban - Dawna - Langford - Children

Gunfire also ripped into a second white Suburban that was carrying Dawna Langford and nine children, about one mile back. Dawna and two of her sons, Trevor, 11, and Rogan, three, were killed.

Footage of the vehicle showed more than a dozen bullet holes in the roof and sides of the vehicle. Inside, blood was smeared across seats and children's toys.

Car - Miles - Flames

A third car, 11 miles behind, was shot up and burst into flames,...
