Four months after the disappearance of 43 college students erupted into a national and political crisis in Mexico, officials are declaring those students dead.

This comes after hundreds of interviews and 99 detentions of cartel members and government officials thought to be connected with the crime.

Parents of the students are rejecting the announcement, and accused the government of seeking to wrap up the investigation despite the many unanswered questions. Brendan Case of Bloomberg News joins Here & Now's Lisa Mullins with details.
