Body parts of 12 found

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

IN­VES­TI­GA­TORS in Mex­ico have found plas­tic bags con­tain­ing the hacked-up bod­ies of 12 peo­ple near the west­ern city of Guadala­jara.

The Jalisco state pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice said the body count could in­crease be­cause ex­perts had so far an­a­lysed only 33 of the 52 plas­tic bags found at the prop­erty. The of­fice has con­firmed that all of the body parts in the 33 bags came from 12 vic­tims.

The area has wit­nessed a rise in clan­des­tine burial pits in re­cent years, with drug and kid­nap­ping gangs fre­quently us­ing such pits to dis­pose of ri­vals or vic­tims.
