PUERTO ASIS, Colombia, Aug. 24 (UPI) -- Three Colombian teenagers who appeared on a Facebook hit list of 69 names have been killed in the past 10 days.
Police told CNN Tuesday they do not know who posted the list or why the names were chosen.
"It is still not clear. This is part of the investigation," Colombian national police spokesman Wilson Baquero told CNN.
The posting, which appeared on Facebook Aug. 17, said the people named had three days to leave the southwestern Colombian town of Puerto Asis or they would be killed, public defender Volmar Perez Ortiz said.
Two of the killings occurred Aug. 15, two days before the list was published on Facebook.
Diego Ferney Jaramillo, 16, and Eibart Alejandro Ruiz Munoz, 17, were shot and killed while riding a motorcycle. Norbey Alexander Vargas, 19, was killed Aug. 20.
A second list with 31 more names appeared Monday. Local news outlets say residents are panic stricken, with some families sending their children out of town.
