According to reports, the bodies were discovered in Veracruz, Mexico, with severe head injuries. The famous director has yet to issue a statement about his tragic loss, but the producer of his film, Little Boy, Eduardo Verástegui, shared his condolences on Twitter Monday in Spanish.

"With a heart full of pain and sadness, I ask for prayers for my friend and 'compadre' Alejandro Gomez Monteverde and all his family," his tweet reads in English. "My deepest condolences to my soul brother, I love you so much 'compadre,' I put my heart in your hands and I join you in this deep pain."
Alejandro's brother, Juan Manuel, was formerly a business partner at La Perecita, a restaurant with rumored drug cartel relations.
