Recently, Take Two has reported on a tumultuous story out of the Mexican city of Iguala where 43 college students went missing in September. 

Now, the former mayor of the city, José Luis Abarca, has been charged with six counts of aggravated homicide and one count of attempted homicide.

For more on this, Take Two is joined by reporter Tim Johnson with McClatchy's Mexico Bureau. As Johnson recently reported, officials who cover up such incidents are rarely brought to account themselves.
