A ransom of two million pesos, which is about 106,000 US dollars was paid. His body was found in Cuernavaca. Father Jose who suffered from a heart condition, was shown by testing to have been dead before the ransom was paid. Father Jose was ordained in 1961. His Congregation, say he was a gentle, kind man priest.
