Post FBI help Mexican probe of CA man's slaying (AP)

AP - The FBI is helping Mexican authorities investigating the shooting deaths of a California school official and five other men in what may have been a drug cartel hit.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said Wednesday that Mexican authorities requested help from the agency but she won't say what that involves.

The FBI has no legal authority outside the U.S. but can provide assistance within the country.

Augustin Salcedo, a 33-year-old assistant principal and school board member, was abducted with five other men from a restaurant last week while he and his wife were visiting her hometown of Gomez Palacio.

The town in Durango state has been wracked by a drug war and Mexican authorities suspect a drug hit — but they haven't determined if the victims had any criminal ties.
