The bodies were surrendered on Wednesday to Tanya Avalos, who is Martinez's wife and the child's mother in Mexico. They left Matamoros, Mexico, on Thursday. Their bodies will be taken to Monterey in the state of Nuevo León, which is about four hours drive. From Monterrey, the bodies will be transported to San Salvador, El Salvador, on a commercial flight, according to Salvador's foreign ministry.
