Harrowing audio messages between relatives of the Mormons slaughtered in northern Mexico reveal the family’s horror as they processed the unimaginable news — and sought solace from God.
“Dear God, everybody pray!” Kendra Lee Miller, one family member of the Mormon victims, begged in a WhatsApp audio message among other relatives, CNN reported.
“My mom’s suburban is blown…by the hill. Everyone please pray,” said Miller.
The chilling messages came after the nine dual US-Mexican citizens were slain Monday in a broad daylight cartel ambush while traveling in a caravan of SUVs along a rural road between La Mora in the northern Mexican state of Sonora and the Chihuahua state.
“Nita and her children are gone,” Miller said in the messages in reference to her sister-in-law Rhonita Marie Miller, according to the news outlet. “They’ve been burned inside the vehicle. Uncle Jeffrey verified, counted all five bodies. Their bones are burned…Their bodies are burned to a crisp. Dear God pray for us all.”
Miller also spoke of family member Dawna Ray Langford, 43, who was shot to death along with her two kids, Trevor, 11, and Rogan, 2.
“Aunt Dawna with most of her kids, Nita with her two oldest and the twins, and then Christina and her baby — none of them have been heard from,” Miller said in the WhatsApp messages, according to CNN, which had only obtained audio from Miller.
Later on, Miller delivered more tragic news.
“Guys, Aunt Dawna and Christina are dead,” said Miller, referring to Langford and Christina Marie Langford Johnson.
Thirteen-year-old survivor Devin Blake Langord trekked 14 miles to get help after witnessing his mother, Dawna, and two of his brothers get gunned down. The teen had hid his surviving siblings in the bushes, family members said.
“Keep praying!” Miller said in an update in the audio messages. “They still have 5 kids hiding in the bushes. Devin walked home.”
