Earlier accounts state that the three students were last seen in Tonala after their vehicle broke down.

He was arrested alongside another suspect, named as Gerardo "N", who was also accused of disposing of the bodies of film students Salomon Acevea Gastelum, 25, Daniel Diaz, 20 and Marco Avalos, 20 in the city of Guadalajara, in the Mexican state of Jalisco.

Gutierrez confessed to state prosecutors that he got rid of the bodies after the three victims were kidnapped, tortured and murdered.

Demonstrators poured onto the streets of Mexico Friday to protest the brutal slaying of three film students by gang members who mistook them for rivals.

Torres told reporters: "The payment was attractive to him (Gutierrez) and that is why he joined this cartel", and also told AFP: "He has participated in three other previous murders".

Gutierrez said he received 3,000 pesos ($159) a week to work for the Jalisco New Generation drug cartel, one of the most powerful in Mexico, having been recruited by a friend three months ago.

Aristoteles Sandoval, governor of Jalisco, said prosecutors are seeking the highest sentence available to the two suspects - 140 years in prison.

Many of Gutierrez's videos include images of poor neighborhoods, drugs and weapons.

Some of his most popular songs include "No Remorse" and "Death Has no Schedule".

Officials are reportedly investigating the videos for further clues into the murders, according to AFP. He was also scheduled to appear as the headliner at the big Rap Fest 664 in Tijuana, Mexico, on April 29.

Almost 12,000 people took to the streets of Guadalajara on Thursday, calling for peace and justice for three film students who were brutally murdered in a crime that has shocked Mexico.

Thousands of people have gathered in Mexico's second-largest city to protest the deaths of three film students who were killed and dissolved in acid in a case that has highlighted the disappearance of the country's youth amid a vicious drug war.

The rapper, along with the other suspect, will be charged with aggravated kidnapping.
