Nine bodies with signs of torture found in southern Mexico
Authorities in Mexico found nine bodies, five of which were dismembered, on a road in violence-plagued Guerrero, officials said, after two sailors were found dead elsewhere in the state over the weekend. Authorities found “four bodies tied at the feet and hands”, and noted they also recovered five black plastic bags “containing the remains of five more people”. Those five bodies were dismembered, with some of the body parts found outside the bags. Acapulco, once a glamorous getaway for Hollywood celebrities, is now considered Mexico’s murder capital, with 111 homicides per every 100,000 residents last year.
