An American couple, serving as missionaries in Mexico, have been found murdered.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:

John and Wanda Casias spent the last 30 years as missionaries in northern Mexico, building a church and helping the poor.

(Frank Casias) "And they died as a martyr for Christ."

...Robbed and murdered in their home Tuesday.

(Michelle Casias) "They strangled her with a rope in the kitchen.  And then they found him later in the garage."

...Their daughter, Michelle, lives in Texas; son, Frank, in Colorado.

(Frank Casias) "You can't think how inhumane people can really be."

The Casias's had 10 children, who say things had gotten very dangerous around Monterrey with drug violence.  And while their parents no longer traveled at night, they refused to leave.
